[FESTIVAL] It's officially festival season. Of course, if you didn't buy tickets to Coachella, Sasquatch, Bonnaroo et al. months ago, you're shit out of luck by now. And anyway, if you're an adult, the notion of being crammed shoulder-to-shoulder with a bunch of sweaty, shirtless college kids for four straight days probably sounds like a nightmare. But staying home during the warmer months doesn't have to mean staying indoors. Case in point: The seventh annual St. Johns Bizarre. Held in Portland's undiscovered country, the event is the best street fair of the season, in no small part because it actually features music people want to hear. This year, that includes mutant disco ensemble Ancient Heat, post-jazzers Blue Cranes, post-rockers 1939 Ensemble, resurgent power-popper Kim Baxter, and Papi Fimbres' trad-cumbia orchestra Orquestra Pacifico Tropical. And there's not likely to be a single tween freaking out on molly anywhere in sight!
