** THANK YOU to everyone who helped make this campaign a success! We are excited for this concert series and look forward to seeing everyone each month at the show! Don't forget to follow us on social media to receive updates when we've released the show videos and interviews.**

Welcome to opbmusic Stagepass – a unique opportunity for you to celebrate and support the vibrancy of Portland’s thriving music scene by getting up close to your favorite Northwest bands.

Stagepass is a new concert series that not only gives you an immersive experience in the Portland music community, but your support and participation will help amazing local bands gain exposure to a worldwide audience through highly produced post-concert videos. 


The Stagepass Experience

Each month, Stagepass tickets holders will enjoy a special, intimate concert from Portland-area artists and bands. All concerts will be filmed by talented videographers and edited together with a behind-the-scenes band interview. The resulting high-energy video will be available online to enjoy and share with friends.

Stagepass Details:

  • Tickets are sold as a series package - individual show tickets will not be available.
  • There will be one concert per month.
  • The Stagepass series will last for nine months.
  • Concerts will be held at Mississippi Studios.
  • At least one band will perform per show. Many shows will also feature an opening band.
  • All shows will be filmed with HD video.

Stagepass Roster:

We’ll be adding more bands to the Stagepass roster throughout the Indiegogo campaign. Be sure to check back often*!


Our Goal:

Over the years, opbmusic has laid a strong foundation for a successful concert series. With more than 200 successful opbmusic sessions under our belt, we are excited about the opportunity to grow the sessions into a series and to place a greater spotlight on Portland’s incredibly talented local artist community. We cannot do this without your support.

opbmusic has received a grant from PBS Digital Studios to produce the Stagepass concert and video series. PBS will match up to $20,000 of the total amount raised during this campaign; a total that we feel is necessary to make this production shine. 100 percent of funds raised during this campaign will be dedicated to helping cover the bands’ costs and producing high quality videos. No money from this campaign will go to OPB, opbmusic or PBS Digital Studios. Additionally, this campaign is funded independently of OPB’s member contributions.


Three Ways to Support:

Buy tickets: The most beneficial way you can support Stagepass, and this project, is to buy tickets. We are offering tickets in a nine-concert package starting for a mere $75.

You will also notice in our perks list to the right that we have additional tickets options in larger packages: a signed instrument from a participating band, dinner before a concert and an overnight hotel stay.

Contribute: If you can’t attend the shows, but would still like to support this project, we would love a donation. To contribute financially only, click the large “contribute now’” button on the top right of the page and follow the  “no perk, I just want to contribute” link. We also have a fantastic graphic t-shirt (see artwork and description below) you can order for only $20.

Tell your friends: The success of our Indiegogo campaign depends on you! And there are a number of ways to tell your concert and music-loving friends about our campaign - please give us a shout out on your Facebook, Twitter or Google+ pages.

To show our appreciation for helping our campaign, you'll have the chance to win a guitar signed by Modern Kin. To enter, simply tag your social media posts with the hashtag #opbstagepass or send a screen shot that shows how/where you shared to stagepass@opb.org. Every share is one entry and there is no limit to the number of entries. All shares must be submitted by 5pm on May 9, 2014.
