It's that time of year again -- the time when the details surrounding everyone's favorite free local-music-spotlighting festival, PDX Pop Now!, start to reveal themselves. No information about the lineup yet, but we do know the where and when: The eighth annual installment of the three-day summertime spectacular is scheduled for July 22-24 at Refuge PDX. That gives you five months to stock up on cutoff jean shorts, ironic tank tops, sunscreen and fanny packs.
Also, PPN is currently accepting submissions for its 2011 compilation. Go here for details and get your chillwave demo in for consideration by Feb. 28.
In the meantime, the Crystal Ballroom is hosting an '80s dance night fundraiser for PPN this Saturday, Feb. 12. Get your tickets here. Only $5! Come to support one of the best all-ages music events in town, stay for Frankie Goes to Hollywood!
