Tomorrow night will feature everything from synthpop gloss to hardcore punk, wiry funk sitting alongside metal, and tons of MTV hits. There's a veritable parade of all-stars and one-off bands, including Sean Croghan and a crew of old-school Portland mainstays performing as the Eastsiders: They've got the year 1989, which could mean some Pixies, some Fugazi, and even early Nirvana. Plus Nathan Junior (M. Ward, Fruit Bats) and Ryan Stowe (Swords Project) are performing as Future Proof, who killed totally it on '70s night with a righteous Skynyrd cover. Little Sue and Lara Mitchell are performing as Henpeck, plus Ezra Holbrooks' the My Oh Mys, and Jim Brunberg's band, and a hot ton more. Also—it is totally, 100% FREE.
