This is the ninth year for the Crystal bash, and it just keeps getting better and better, so jump into the fray with us! All four floors of Portland's historic music venue will rock ‘n' roll in exuberant celebration of the Crystal's 95th birthday.
This free, all-ages gala features a full day and a full house of music including appearances by Portland indie heavyweights Blitzen Trapper and Blue Giant, a performance by Greensky Bluegrass as they come through on the Great Northwest Music Tour, live showcases from the White Eagle Saloon, Oregon Bluegrass Association and Rock ‘n' Roll Camp for Girls (each featuring a collection of acts highlighting their contributions to Oregon's music community), VJ'ed music and more!
Check out all the cool stuff happening all day long at the Crystal, at Lola's Room, at Ringlers and at Ringlers Annex. Tour all floors of this historic property, sample McMenamins beer, wine, spirits and coffee, enjoy kids' entertainment (both for kids and by kids!), order up food and drink specials and much more.
