Tired of all those annoying buskers ruining your downtown rail experience? Me too. Thankfully the noble souls at PDX Pop Now! have joined forces with New Rail~Volutionaries (~~~that is how they spell it~~~) and the Women Transportation Seminar to present the first annual Streetcar Mobile Music Fest.
On September 19, from 7-9pm, a handful of excellent Portland bands will hijack the streetcars (like a musical version of The Taking of Pelham One Two Three) between the PSU and Good Samaritan Hospital stops. Live music on the streetcars? Yes, please. It sure beats listening to a crazy guy yell into his shoe about how 9/11 was an inside job orchestrated by Zionist cyborgs.
Here's the schedule:
6:10 pm - 7:02 pm: Jared Mees and the Grown Children
6:22 pm - 7:13 pm: Left Coast Country
6:44 pm - 7:31 pm: Dag B and the Zig Zags
7:09 pm - 7:55 pm: Blake Lyman
7:23 pm - 8:09 pm: Sara Jackson-Holman
7:38 pm - 8:24 pm: Laurent Nickel
7:55 pm - 8:41 pm: The Sons of Good Fathers
8:12 pm - 8:58 pm: Boy and Bean
