The Gathering of the Goof Punx 2012 is a DIY Music and Culture Festival taking place in Portland, Oregon, April 5th-8th.

The Gathering of the Goof Punx is a music and culture festival taking place April 5th-8th or 2012 in Portland, Oregon.  There's gonna be a shit ton of bands!  There's gonna be a parade!  There's gonna be a punk rock carnival!  There's gonna be a punk rock spelling bee!  There's gonna be the world's biggest game of Knockout!  Midnight Soccer!  Shoe Game!  A late night screening of Weird Al's classic "UHF"!  Old friends!  New friends!  AND A WHOLE BUNCH OF FUN!

But we need YOUR HELP TO MAKE IT HAPPEN!  This is a not-for-profit fest, but we still need to pay the venues and give the out of town bands some gas money.  The calculated cost for this is around 3,000 dollars, which the fest organizers are willing to pay out of their own pockets, but they could use a little help, ya know?
