Every year since 2004 the fine upstanding volunteers at PDX Pop Now! release an expansive local music compilation a few months before their annual festival. The amuse bouche before the all-u-can-eat buffet that is the multi-day concert, if you will. This year is no exception, as the PPN! crew just announced their release party and the comp's tracklisting.

First, the party. It's going down on Thursday June 2 at Holocene. Your $10 cover will get you a copy of the CD, plus sets from (a reunited) O Bruxo, Blue Skies For Black Hearts, Swahili, Lost Lander, DJ papi chulo and DJ Gigante. Plus it's a rare all-age show at Holocene. Damn kids, stay outta my photo booth!

As for the 41-song compilation, you can get the full tracklist after the jump. But here's a little audio courtesy of up-and-comers Lost Lander.
