Streetcar Mobile Music Fest
Every streetcar running between the Rose Quarter and OMSI
 

[BANDS ON THE CRAWL] Go ahead, laugh at the streetcar. Everyone does. We've heard all the jokes before: "It rolls through town at the speed of a ground sloth on quaaludes." "You can get wherever it's going faster by walking." Y'know what, though? There's never going to be a music festival on the MAX or the aerial tram. Those other modes of public transportation are too fast to accommodate anything more complicated than a busker with a guitar. And who wants to spend their trip getting serenaded by out-of-tune Bob Dylan covers? Wouldn't you much rather watch sets from actual bands? That's the idea behind the Streetcar Music Festival, placing legit Portland artists—including Jeffrey Jerusalem, Classical Revolution PDX and rapper Cloudy October—on every streetcar between the Rose Quarter and OMSI, for performances lasting the full hour of a single trip. Or, you know, you can just take the bus and listen to the soothing sounds of your fellow passengers' hacking coughs and cellphone conversations.
