Impact scoured the corridors of Portland to hunt out you budding music enthusiasts to help us put together a survey of who you thought made up the musical spectrum of 2010. Although we may have received a few set backs along the way and a few unwelcome responses to our prying (‘Excuse me, are you interested in music?’ ‘No.’), we’ve managed to put together a pretty diverse selection.
