PDX POP NOW! Compilation Release

[HOMETOWN HEROES] Not only is PDX Pop Now!—the all-ages, all-Portland summer music festival—one of the city’s best annual events, it also serves as a crucial survey of a music scene that’s constantly shifting, evolving and turning over. And the compilations the volunteer organization behind the festival produces each year are physical time capsules of very specific moments. The 2013 comp, which comes with the price of admission, features big names (Mike Coykendall with Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard, Y La Bamba, Chromatics), of-the-moment “talks of the city” (the Shivas, Radiation City, Woolen Men) and under-the-radar next big things (Magic Fades, Dupre, Eidolons), along with release-show performers Sapient, Sean Flinn and the Royal We, Summer Cannibals and Wishyunu. How many of those artists will be around this time next year? It’s impossible to say, but that’s what make PPN so vital.
