Pabst Blue Ribbon–which is apparently being heralded as a “hipster beer” now–is cashing in on its new status and throwing a “hipster festival” called Project Pabst. How PBR went from a cheap beer that tastes less sh*tty than Bud Light to the official drink of tight-pants-wearing urbanites is beyond me, but it might have something to do with all of those PBR + whiskey shot deals at Brooklyn music venues. Regardless, if this means we have a chance to see some amazing alternative bands gather together in once place, we’re not complaining.

Taking place at venues across Portland during the weekend of September 26-28, the lineup includes: Modest Mouse, Guided by Voices, Tears for Fears, GZA, Violent Femmes, and a ton more (which you can see below). Single-day tickets are available on the Project Pabst website, as well venue and schedule information.
