Word came down from party central today that the all-volunteer organizing committee behind the PDX Pop Now! festival — the three day, all ages, and all free celebration of the local music scene — is ready to start listening to some music with the intention of maybe…just maybe…including it on their 2013 compilation CD.
Why should this concern you, the experimental musician or label owner? Well, of course, the two CD collection is going to lean heavy on the Portland indie rock/pop/folk scene, but I think enough of y’all are doing work that could sneak on to the new comp without anyone raising an eyebrow. And if they do hem and haw, even better.
So, if you want to send them a track or two for consideration, visit this site and do what you gotta do to make it happen. Then check out the cool artwork cooked up for this year’s fest posters/compilation artwork/etc. below.
