Clearly no stranger to music, or carving up the wax behind the ones and twos, Mayor Sam Adams has released a statement about this year's PDX Pop Now! events, including this afternoon's free show on his lawn:

Portland is world-renowned for our independent music scene. PDX POP NOW! is a part of that great success, bringing local artists to the forefront and making great music accessible to all Portlanders.

Yeah, what the mayor dude said. Tonight's show is on the grass in front of City Hall and the lineup will feature the likes of Y La Bamba, Point Juncture WA, and YACHT. It's free, all ages, and runs from 5:30-8:30 pm. See you there.
