No labor to find cool music this weekend!

The unofficial end of summer is drawing nigh, so if you're in or near Portland this weekend, here's a few musical options to check out ...

Every Labor Day weekend there's Art in the Pearl ... besides some visually stunning work to enjoy, there's also a stage of music to check out with some of Portland's finest including Beth Wood, Karyn Ann, Radio Stranger, Pretty Gritty, Will West, Kathryn Claire, and Anna Tival.
