Kenton Community Park Concert w/ Blossom, Neophyte and White Lotus

August 30, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

There is a serious lack of all ages & youth-centered venues in Portland; add to that the historic and systemic suppression of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) ownership in the State of Oregon, and the result is little to no BIPOC venues in our state. To raise awareness around the inequities in the Portland music ecosystem—and for our efforts to establish a Friends of Noise all-ages venue—we’ve launched our Community Park Concert series hosted in Portland’s parks every Sunday at 3 pm.
The series showcases a diverse group of talented artists, provides mentorship opportunities to young engineers, and creates a safe space to enjoy local music with your neighbors as a form of healing during this difficult time.
Sunday, Aug. 30 at Kenton Park featuring:
White Lotus (IG – @333whitelotus)
Neophyte (IG – @neophyte_.)
Blossom (IG – @bamb00banga)
We encourage you to come out, wear your mask & safely enjoy this free, socially-distanced community event and donate if you’re able via
Venmo: @friendsofnoise
Cash App: $FoN503
