The Portland Party
    Wednesday March 14, 2012 12:00pm - 2:00am @ The Grackle (1700 E 6th St., Austin, TX 78702)

    Hipsters, tall bikes, clown schools, and endless PBR flowing in every home kegerator. Aptly named The Portland Party, the all-day concert will feature over 20 bands from Rain City, and even sweetens the deal with free beer, coffee, and liquor!

    Local Portland breweries will be sending down kegs to provide two “Power Hours” of free beer, proving once and for all that despite recent allegations from Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, the people of the Pacific Northwest will likely choose to “put a beer on it” over a bird. The two Power Hours will take place at Noon and 6:00pm. In addition, The Portland Party will be giving away free Stumptown Coffee (morning Power Hour) and 360 Vodka (evening Power Hour). 

    An intersection of Portland’s art and culture, the party is presented by a wide variety of Portland organizations, including Tender Loving Empire, A to Z Media, Octopus Entertainment, Marmoset Music, and Eleven Magazine. The Portland Party is also sponsored by an array of music, media and tasty allies, including Tixie, GoPro, Travel Portland, Deschutes Brewing, Stumptown Coffee, Voodoo Doughnut, 360 Vodka, and more!

    So bust out your fixie, put on your finest non-prescription glasses and skinny jeans, and come out ready to dance, drink and party like it’s the 1990’s – Portland style.
