We did this last year with a mix & match of equipment and bungee cords and it worked last year, but we learned a lot. So this year we would like to DO IT BETTER, by asking for your help to fund a mobile live band setup. Groups from rock to hip hop and performance art to dance routines all on a bike ride with a mobile setup playing in places you would usually not see amplified live music.

The Tall Tour 2 is a mobile street party hosted by some of the core of the bike fun scene in Portland, with live bands and performances of all kinds. There is a core of bands, performers, and roadies making it happen and special guests for each one.   We have a shared basic live stage setup with 3 powered Speakers for stereo vocals(2 mics) and bass guitar, 4 piece Drum set, Guitar amp, small mixer, and we will generally have loan guitar and bass.   We do this so bands don't have to haul a bunch of gear and bike ride is easier.        


June:
**Dropout Prom Ride(june 17th) - Ilima & the Sexbots(hot electro), The Wrong Kind(rawk), We are Conductors(electric folk), Gaydolf Shitler(killer organ jamz), and Prom dance music.  

**WNBR/WCBR(june 18th) renegade after party - Outdoor dance party with special guest DJ's and MC's, hosted by Dropout B.C. and North Freak Collective.    

**Multnomah County Bike Fair(june 25) - We are providing the entertainment stage with: Sprockettes, DMLH, Paulie Think, The Wrong Kind, B. Jr, Hopeless Jack & the handsome Devils, THIS.machine.KILLS.zombies, Years & Years, and more.

We are open to others joining us and making it even better. There is currently room, but your band/group needs to be riding bikes.

We are going to show up to a number of day and night rides this summer starting June 17th and ending with Cardboard boat race in Sept.

July/Aug/Sept dates and performers to be announced soon, also you can check out more videos from last year at our project blog.   If you want to help us setup a show or have a place we can go outdoors hit us up.

July 15th - Street party at NE Fremont and Williams at 6:30pm

July 16th  in the works TBA
