Now Taking Requests!

06:18PM on Tuesday March 10, 2009

What bands would you like to see on stage during the 2009 PDX Pop Now! festival? Modest Mouse and a reunited Sleater-Kinney? Blind Pilot and Explode Into Colors? Your neighbor’s Bay City Rollers tribute act? No promises, but let us know, and we’ll see what we can do. Visit our Requests page and ask for your favorites. As always, we’re looking for artists from all the genres comprising the city’s vibrant and varied music community – folk and rock, country and hip hop, jazz and electronic and so forth – and our booking committee does research and listen to every band requested, so every request counts.
