Our little Vortex has been swirling around for three years, steadily picking up fans as we cover more and more of the diverse bands and artists who make Portland’s musical vortex so vibrant. Along the way, our voice has grown stronger, more confident—thanks to the support of this creatively buoyant music community and readers like you.
Our goal from day one was to make the Portland music scene more successful by making it more accessible. We’ve seen this magazine have the power to bring people together, connect dots and establish community. We’ve heard the music and we’re inspired to keep pushing forward. Just like a vortex in nature revolves around a central axis, Vortex Music Magazine revolves around our people—aka you!
So we’d like to invite you to join the Vortex Access Party—which is both a partay and a club. Or maybe a shindig in our clubhouse? Err, more like we’re a band and you get a backstage pass! Really, it’s an exclusive, all-access pass to everything Vortex. Sign up and you’ll get new issues of the mag delivered direct to your door each quarter, plus perks from local businesses will show up in your inbox every month just for being a member.
You don’t want to be fashionably late to this party because if you get here first you’ll get a discount on monthly party dues (pay just $2 per month!) plus score deals at stellar local retailers like Music Millennium, Tender Loving Empire and Volume Bomb, screen printing services from Rebel Cricket, studio time at The Rye Room, mics from Ear Trumpet Labs, free vinyl from KINK, savings on membership at CorePower Yoga, and a slice or two from Sizzle Pie! And you’ll get 10 bonus Vortex Party Points.
Cool, cool. But what the hell is a party point?
Points provide access to parties, duh! For every month you’re a member, you’ll earn 5 Vortex Party Points to put toward concert tickets and other exclusive items like vinyl, photography and concert posters.
Don’t miss this party.
And with your name permanently on the guest list, we will continue our chronicle of Portland’s musical vortex together.
