Here are a couple of announcements for Portland, passed on from Vortex.
With fireworks on the banks of the Willamette, the Waterfront Blues Festival (July 4-7) is the largest celebration of blues, soul, funk and more west of the Mississippi. This year features Robert Randolph, The Revivalists, Beth Hart, Marc Broussard, George Thorogood, and The Motet alongside NW talent like Curtis Salgado, Polyrhythmics, Kevin Selfe, Dirty Revival, Worth and many, many more!
Mark your cal for the 15th annual PDX Pop Now! (July 21-22) featuring dozens of local bands, Rigsketball and so much more beneath the Hawthorne Bridge. It’s free, all-ages, and curated by volunteers to take a yearly snapshot of our scene’s sights and sounds. BONUS: The summer issue of Vortex drops on July 21 at the fest!
