It's Time For PDX Pop Now!

IMG_2745Is everyone ready for PDX Pop Now!?! With the festival beginning in just a few hours, I wanted to share a bit of last-minute technical information for the weekend. For anyone outside the city (or people to lazy to make it down to Rotture) you can tune into two online radio stations to hear every minute—both PRA and KPSU are live streaming all three days. Also, I'll be there for most of the weekend (look for the guy in the giant leg brace sitting in the folding chair!) and tweeting from my account @ somekindalove. Casey will also be using the LocalCut account as well. Join in the fun by using the #PPN2010 hashtag! Hey, at least we're not trying to get you to use Foursquare or anything.

Not sure what PPN! is all about? Here are some clips of some of my favorite performances and the full schedule for this year's fest.
