PDX Pop Now has announced the dates and venue for next year's festival. Like this past year, the three-day festival will take place at Refuge (116 SW Yamhill), which successfully found space for both the indoor and outdoor stages, and there were no reports of anyone getting run over by a train. (Well done, festivalgoers!) The festival appears to be taking place one week earlier than previous years, which had the festival fall during the last weekend in July. This year's fest falls on July 20-22. Mark your calendars.

End Hits: So plan for a hangover on July 23, too.
