Portland Mercury

Dear readers,

We need your help. The coronavirus crisis in Portland is a major threat to the Mercury's ability to keep the city informed. We pride ourselves on having navigated many storms in the world of independent local media, but this time is different.

90% of our revenue—from advertising, ticketing fees, and our own events—is directly tied to people getting together in groups. The coronavirus situation has virtually eliminated this income all at once. At a time when the city needs local coverage more than ever, we're asking for your help to support continued coverage or everything happening in Portland. You can make one-time or recurring donations. We can't say enough how much we appreciate your support. Thank you.

Pedalpalooza: Idols on Wheels

Sun Jun 7
Various Locations Hosford-Abernethy
Prince's birthday is always a big deal during Pedalpalooza, and 2020 is no different... well, okay, it's a little different, and not just because of the pandemic, but because Prince's birthday is now an opportunity for you to pedal around and pay tribute to any musical idol of your choosing, not just His Royal Badness. If you've got the love, and you've got the time, and you think U got the look, put together a costume and a playlist and hit the road at full volume. Prince isn't the only idol you can celebrate, however. The Teenage Dirtbag Bike Club is organizing their own tribute to the, the only, the supa-dupa, Missy Elliott, with a socially distant ride that starts at 7 pm, with a synced-up SoundCloud mix as the soundtrack, and stops for photos with a cardboard Missy, as well as Teenage Dirtbag Bike Club stickers.
