Parisalexa Plays Portland!

One of the Northwest’s brightest rising stars, Parisalexa (aka Paris Alexa Williams) is headlining The Lot Summer Music Festival Sunday August 15th along the Willamette River in Portland.

(Seattle’s Museum of Popular Culture – MoPOP – competition for artists under 21), and touring the West Coast with Portland’s own Blossom and Philadelphia rapper Ivy Sole, in a “triple threat” reviewers called a tour de force.
