If you're anything like us - and goodness knows, if you're reading this blog on a regular basis, you probably are - you were online first thing this morning for the announcement of this year's lineup for the PDX Pop Now! Festival (being held from July 22nd to the 24th at Refuge PDX).

Well, it has been announced, and as expected, it's a doozy. Not just the bands that the all-volunteer committee picked for the festival, but the way in which they chose to present it: via an awesome stop-motion animated video.

Not bad, eh?

We've decided to do you one better and give you a taste of all the artists that will be playing the festival. We tracked down as many video clips of them that we could find (if you know where to get a hold of some Karen footage, let us know) [thanks, Aubrey!] and offer them to you here in one epic blog post. If this doesn't provide you with ample enough fuel for your PDX Pop Now! anticipatory fire...well, we really can't help you.
