About PDX Pop Now!
PDX Pop Now! is a volunteer-driven, 501(c)3 non-profit organization committed to celebrating and promoting Portland’s vital music community. Begun in 2004 in true DIY fashion by roughly a dozen members of a local indie-pop email list, the group has produced seven previous music compilations and FREE, ALL-AGES, multi-day music festivals, to which scores of Portland artists both nationally-heralded (including The Decemberists, The Thermals, Lifesavas, Menomena, Blitzen Trapper and The Blow) and lesser-known have contributed recordings or performances. The festivals, which allow the public to see up to 50 of Portland’s finest bands in one central, accessible venue, have drawn audiences in the thousands. The compilations have generated considerable play from local and national FM radio and sold thousands of copies combined, mostly through local independent record stores, to help fund the yearly festival.

Additionally, through outreach programs, PDX Pop Now! has worked successfully with the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, local businesses, schools and the broader community to make more safe all-ages concerts possible and allow young Oregonians to participate more fully in the local arts community. PDX Pop Now! also works with public schools and other music-related organizations to bring live local performances and opportunities to create music to youth in our community.
