For the second summer in a row, Portland’s living room was the city’s hottest music arena. Northwest-based independent event promoter True West took over Pioneer Courthouse Square for most of August by booking a lineup of crowd-pleasing performers. The series, PDX Live, launched in 2022 and this year drew an estimated 28,000 people. Up next: True West hosts Portland Oktoberfest at the same venue Sept. 22 and 23.
