Portland’s music scene is constantly evolving, and striving to chronicle this distinctive musical vortex requires our own evolution. It’s been a year since we launched our website, and that means it’s time for a little update. As we continually seek better, more useful ways to support our music community, we now have the first stage of a new mobile experience waiting for you if you visit vrtxmag.com on your phone, tablet or mobile device.
Vortex On The Go
What you’ll see is just the start of a mobile-optimized presence for Vortex, offering a simplified menu of options to help you discover new music and then encourage you to get out and see it live!
Curated Concert Calendar: Plan your evening or weekend by browsing our staff-selected concert calendar and festival listings, win tickets to a show, and scan the Show Picks for two thumbs up from our team of fervent music fanatics.
Think Local: You wouldn’t be reading this without the backing of countless contributors and local businesses who believe in supporting the local music community so check out the Vortex Marketplace.
And in an effort to build a better community, we’ll continue to do our part by giving a percentage of our proceeds to a local music nonprofit. For this issue, 5 percent of all pay-what-you-want subscriptions will go to support musicians who are experiencing medical emergencies via The Jeremy Wilson Foundation.
If you’ve already subscribed, thanks! Now, tell a friend. If not, you can pay nothing, cover the cost of your postage, or the sky’s the limit—just visit vrtxmag.com/subscribe
Take Vortex on the go with you and follow our passionate yet evolving chronicle of Portland’s musical Vortex.
