(Originally Broadcast on 31 March 2012 on KPSU.)
Portland’s own DIY punk band, The Taxpayers dropped into the KPSU studios to chat a bit about The Gathering of The Goofpunx which is an all ages festival happening at various venues and houses all over Portland next weekend. The gathering itself welcomes folks of any sort who just like to hang out, watch some awesome bands play and most of all HAVE FUN!
The best part is that the proceeds from this 4-day shindig goes to various non-profit and community organizations such as Portland Books to Prisoners and Porchlight/ Streetlight Youth Shelters!
Listen in as Miss Rikki gets the lowdown on all the happenings. If you want to learn even more, you can do so at the Goof Punx website Here: http://gatheringofthegoofpunx.tumblr.com
