					Fifth Annual NorthWest Crossing Hullabaloo Welcomes Headliner Storm Large

Popular Bend, Oregon free street festival books musical acts; stage
sponsored by The Garner Group and Carrera Audi

Bend, Oregon, June 13, 2012 -- The NorthWest Crossing Hullabaloo, a
popular Bend, Oregon street festival being held this year on June 29, is
kicking off summer in style with headline musical act, Storm Large.
Large, who is based in Portland, appeared on the television show Rock
Star: Supernova in the mid-2000s and America fell in love with her
irreverent attitude and soulful, powerful voice. She’s worked in an
appearance at the Hullabaloo, as most of her summer will be spent touring
with Pink Martini.

Large, who recently published a book of her memoirs called Crazy Enough,
released a CD of the same name a couple of years ago. Her 20-plus year
musical career has been marked by her vocal range and power, her
commanding stage presence and her raw, gutsy attitude.

Her act, which begins at 8:30 p.m., will be preceded by Anastacia (4
p.m.), a singer songwriter who moves through musical genres such as
Americana, folk rock, bluegrass with a hint of eastern spice; Bend’s own
upbeat, loud and rollicking Five Pint Mary (5:30 p.m.) Celtic folk-rock
band; and 3 Leg Torso’s (7 p.m.) charming, elegant and daring modern
chamber pop music style that embraces wit and humor within thoughtful,
uncommon and beautiful musical arrangements. The Hullabaloo mainstage
line-up is presented by The Garner Group and Carrera Audi, with musician
hosting by the NorthWest Crossing Builders’ Guild.

WHEN: June 29th, 3:30-10 p.m.
WHAT: NorthWest Crossing Hullabaloo
WHERE: NorthWest Crossing Neighborhood Center, Bend, Oregon
COST: Free

The uproarious street festival, which is in its fifth year, regularly
features bike races (including a kid’s crit), live music, street
performers and family activities. The next day, June 30th, is the kick-
off of the popular NorthWest Crossing Farmers Market, which will run
every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. through September 22nd. For more
