OPB Music has all the details on last night's Make it Pop benefit show, including video of head Decemberist Colin Meloy debuting some new songs from the band's forthcoming album. Not only that, but PPN! spilled some details on their yearly two-disc compilation as well:
Finally, the new Decemberists cuts weren't the only surprises of the evening. PDX Pop Now! also lifted the curtain on the tracklist for their annual 2-disc compilation, out later this spring. The mix included stalwart names like Menomena, Blitzen Trapper and Laura Veirs, as well as love to hear more of them acts like Nucular Aminals, Death Songs and The Mean Jeans, and the usual mix of the unfamiliar and unrecognizable within which we can only hope lie our new favorite local bands. Look for the public unveiling of the track list early next week.
Stupid Blazer game, I should have gone to Make it Pop instead.
