Looks like those fatcats at PDX Pop Now! need more money for their pleasure yachts and gold-plated Segway rims. Okay, that was a lie. Actually, PPN! is 501(c) non-profit and events like the third annual Make it Pop! benefit are essential for the all-age music festival. Like in previous years, the lineup is pretty impressive:

Thursday, April 28 at The Cleaners at the Ace Hotel
Laura Veirs
Eric Earley (of Blitzen Trapper)
Israel Nebeker (of Blind Pilot)
Laura Gibson
plus DJ Jeremy "Turntable Wizard" Petersen of OPB Music

Plus you can cram your mouth-hole with hors d'ouvres from Beast and desserts from Bakery Bar. For those of age, there will be beer from Captured by Porches and wine from Anne Amie Winery. All this for $35, which is about a the cost of a single bite of food at Beast, so it's a total bargain. This event usually sells out, so get your tickets right here.
