23 days until the2010 PDX Pop Now! Festival kicks off. Until then, take a minute to get a little better acquainted with a couple of acts that will be performing. You'll thank us later.
2010 has seen the big sound of sextet And And And make an equally big splash in the Portland indie-pop world—turning heads as they churn out full-lengths like they name was Dwayne Carter.
And And And - "Dizzzy"
Let's clear up the spelling here and now, for good— Alex Smith and Sean Sumler are ASSS. Not AS/SS. Drums, drone, sax and distorted unpredictability—the duo make a noise unlike anyone else in town.
ASSS - "Don't Think"
The PDX Pop Now! Festival takes place from July 30 — August 1 at Rotture (320 SE 2nd Ave, Free to all ages)
