PDX Pop Now! 2010

Oh shit! PDX Pop Now! is this weekend and I haven't properly prepared. It's almost as fun sampling every bands Myspace page as I figure out my game plan, but I am not sure I have time for all that. Luckily, End Notes has had an excellent series highlighting each band playing. Of course, Hockey and the Joggers are on my list. And they play back to back late at night, which might not be a bad thing. Last year, PDX Pop Now! fell on one of the hottest weekends last summer, giving the packed Rotture a stuffy and communally dank atmosphere. Despite the B.O., I had a lot of fun sweating my asses off and listening to the up and coming local talent. I'll let you know what else makes the cut.

Here's a list of the bands playing:
Aan, AgesAndAges, AndAndAnd, Asss, Atriarch, AU, Autistic Youth, Ben Darwish, Billygoat, Blue Cranes, Blue Horns, Brainstorm, Cloudy October, Defect Defect, Da’Rel Junior, Eternal Tapestry, Fear No Music, Get Hustle, Grey Anne, Guantanamo Baywatch, Hockey, Hosannas, I Can Lick Any Sonofabitch In The House, Jackie-O Motherfucker, Joey Casio, Joggers, Krebsic Orkestar, Kung Pao Chickens, Kusikia, Lewi Longmire, Luck One, Michael The Blind, Operative, Parenthetical Girls, Please Step Out of The Vehicle, Reporter, Rollerball, Shoeshine Blue, Skeletron, Soup Purse, SubArachnoid Space, Tiny Knives, Tu Fawning, The Tumblers, Typhoon, Wampire, Why I Must Be Careful, Ylang Ylang
