first_imgThe crowd for the second Couvapalooza music festival was about five times larger than the first, but the annual show still has a ways to go before it breaks even.About 1,500 people attended the Aug. 17 all-day event, which had 16 bands, including headliner Everclear, on two stages at the Clark College campus.There’s still a lot of work to be done to build the festival, but organizers Heidi Hahn-Troxler and her husband Michael Troxler are calling it a success.“It went really well,” Hahn-Troxler said. “It ran very, very smoothly.”The event, which cost about $50,000 to put together this year, is a fundraiser for Clark County school music programs. Since it didn’t break even, the Troxlers are donating $1,000 each to the La Center Music Foundation, Hockinson School District, Battle Ground Band Boosters, Bridges Northwest and the Clark College Foundation, they said.Despite losing money, the couple said they plan to keep going and are dedicated to using the event to support music in Clark County schools.“I’m really excited for next year,” Hahn-Troxler said. “I’m excited that we had Everclear play. We’re already lining up some of our headline bands for next year.”last_img
