[TAKES ALL KINDS] This year's PDX Pop Now! compilation is a startling reminder of two things: How many fine bands this city continues to churn out and just how old I am getting. The disc, which features unreleased jams from old favorites (Alan Singley, Cool Nutz) and upstart groups (Blouse, Reva Devito) alike, offers tastes of everything from garage rock to hip-hop to blistering metal, but tonight's show has a definite groove to it. O Bruxo's one-night reunification can only mean ass-shaking, especially when paired with dancey new acts Swahili and the brand-new Matt Sheehy-helmed singer-songwriter-beatlover project Lost Lander (which sounds awesome in large part due to ex-Menomenaut Brett Knopf's superb production). But don't worry, Blue Skies for Black Hearts will hold it down for rock and roll at this rare all-ages Holocene show. Good music, good cause and the kids are invited: What could be better?
