PDX Pop Now! Presents: The Portland Streetcar Mobile Musicfest Friday, October 5th, 2012 6-10PM!

01:13PM on Wednesday September 26, 2012

Featuring Performances From: Sun Angle / Classical Revolution PDX / Dana Buoy / Jeffrey Jerusalem / Edna Vasquez / Cloudy October / Sassparilla / New Pioneers / Ocean Floor / Charts / MC Rose / Josh & Mer / Vikesh Kapoor / What Hearts / Au Dunes / Beisbol

The second annual Streetcar Mobile Musicfest is coming up here very soon, with 16 local bands, “Streetcar Specials” from participating local businesses, and a free after party at Union/Pine!

Hosted by New Rail-Volutionaries PDX, Women’s Transportation Seminar, PDX Pop Now!, and Portland Streetcar, Inc., the Streetcar Mobile Musicfest is the singular Portland festival celebrating the beneficial role public transportation plays in uniting both the people who live here and the local businesses that make each neighborhood so culturally diverse.

Welcoming the Portland streetcar to the Central Eastside, the Streetcar Mobile Musicfest will take place between the Rose Quarter/Left Bank stop and OMSI, with each band boarding at the Rose Quarter and performing for one complete trip (60 minutes) with layover performances at OMSI—including historian/storyteller Rick Huddle who will share stories about the history of the neighborhood.

The festival is free to the public with a streetcar ticket and coincides with the district’s First Friday Art Walk, making for an eventful evening both on and off the streetcar!

Following the event, the celebration will continue from 9-12PM at the free, all-ages after party hosted by Union/Pine (525 SE Pine), featuring sets from Sun Angle and Dana Buoy to close out the night!
