The PDX Pop Now! music festival was born in 2004. Always free and always featuring a stellar lineup, this year’s was especially fun. Among the bands I was most stoked to see were Cry Babe, Mope Grooves, and of course, old favorites Gaytheist and Federale. A hot weekend made for what looked like a smaller crowd (everyone seemed to be at the river... at least on my Instagram feed), but there were plenty of cuties in attendance, as you can see from these snaps. Don’t miss it next year! xo, PP
