So this is a teeny bit late, but Musicfest NW and PDX Pop Now! have finally announced their line-ups for this year. The one for MFNW is a partial line up but, so far, things are looking very good. You can check it out here. PDX Pop Now!'s line up is available here. While MFNW is priced pretty well if you get a wrist band, PDX Pop will be FREE. So, if you're short on cash, that's one I highly recomend not missing. Also, be sure to pick up a copy of the 2009 PDX Pop Now! compilation. There are some particular good tracks by the Mint Chicks and Ah Holly Fam'ly.
