The fine folks at the PDX Bridge Festival allow us to have brunch in the middle of the Hawthorne bridge—although that one time I ate a Pillsbury toaster strudel while crossing the pedestrian walkway on the Steel Bridge, you didn't see me throwing a party. The fest is wrapping their second year of "celebrating the bridges that connect us all" with this post-fest soirée. With more bands than bridges (13 to 10, in favor of the musicians) there will be sets at both Lola's Room and the larger Crystal Ballroom space, and the vast lineup includes the gently weeping keytar of Copy, the stylized rock and roll of Symmetry/Symmetry, and the quirky sideshow oddities of Wanderlust Circus.
