We're excited to get you on board, but we want you to understand what you're getting into. By signing up below, you are expressing interest in helping to curate the 2014 PDX Pop Now! Compilation. We normally receive over 500 entries from local Portland bands. With the help of our Listening Committee, we narrow it down to a comp of around 40 songs. Don't worry, though — you won't have to judge all of them!
Our process depends on each of you listening to and forming an opinion on no more than 100 random, anonymous .mp3s. You'll have about 10 days to do it in early-mid March. That's ten (ish) songs a day! If that sounds like an unclimbable mountain, no hard feelings. But this may not be for you. If you're up for it, fantastic. Let's get going!
For those of you who are signing up: Please do not wait until the last minute to complete the voting process. Maybe listen to a few tracks on the bus ride to work! A couple more at lunch! A few more while you wait for some terrible TV show to start. We've made it possible for you to download the tracks for use with the media player of your choice. We can also burn you a CD if you don't have access to an .mp3 player.
We'll have a few people waiting in the wings as understudies, but they need to be given as much warning as possible that their services will be necessary. If you sign up for this and something calamitous happens, we get it, and we'll call one of them. Just let us know ASAP. But we want people who are as pumped as we are to work through a bunch of Portland music from the last year. If that's you, please fill out the fields below!
