The 2008 PDX Pop Now! compilation is now available for purchase at local retail outlets and online at CD Baby here. Proceeds from sales of the album go towards funding the festival and the rest of organization's activities. The 2008 installment of the heralded compilation features music from Panther, Chromatics and Au as well as previously unreleased tracks by the Blitzen Trapper, Talkdemonic, Horse Feathers, YACHT, Yellow Swans, the Joggers, Pink Martini, and Faux Hoax (a project featuring Gang of Four's Dave Allen and Menomena's Danny Seim).

PDX Pop Now! has produced five music compilations and four FREE, ALL AGES multi-day music festivals, to which The Shins, The Thermals, Sleater-Kinney, The Decemberists, Viva Voce, Stephen Malkmus, Lifesavas, Quasi, M. Ward, Menomena, The Blow, Mirah, Talkdemonic, The Gossip, YACHT, Blitzen Trapper, Helio Sequence, and dozens more Portland artists - nationally-heralded and little-known alike - contributed recordings or performances.

The PDX Pop Now! festivals - which have provided the public the opportunity to see up to 50 of Portland's finest bands in one safe venue -have drawn audiences in the thousands. The compilations have generated considerable play from local FM radio and have sold thousands of combined copies, mostly through local independent record stores, and helped fund the festivals. Through outreach programs, PDX Pop Now! successfully worked with the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, local businesses and the broader community to make more all-ages concerts possible in a safe and responsible manner, allowing young Oregonians to participate more fully in their local arts communities.
