Check out the new PDX Pop Now! logo, courtesy of Carson Ellis. Along with the new logo comes exciting news about PDX Pop's upcoming fundraiser, the second annual Make it Pop benefit. This year's Make it Pop boasts a very impressive roster:
Colin Meloy, frontman of the Decemberists, and boy-toy of Carson Ellis, as it so happens
The Alialujah Choir, a "supergroup" of sorts consisting of two Adams (Shearer, of Weinland; and Selzer, of Norfolk & Western), plus Alia Farah
Ah Holly Fam'ly
Musee Mecanique
DJ Jeremy Peterson of the excellent OPB show In House
It all goes down at 6:30 pm on Thursday, April 29 at the Cleaners at the Ace Hotel (403 SW 10th). Sundries provided by Bakery Bar, Saint Cupcake, Fifty Licks, and Captured by Porches Brewing. Tickets cost $35.

The 2010 PDX Pop Now! festival will take place at Rotture (315 SE 3rd) on July 30, 31, and August 1. Mark those calendars now.
