Tabernacle, Flock of Dimes @ Bottom of the Hill
Not to be confused with Flock of Seagulls, Wye Oak guitartist Jenn Wasner strikes out on her own under the moniker Flock of Dimes.

Johnnyswim @ Great American Music Hall

Wednesday, October 19

Trash Talk, Antwon @ Slim’s
It’s gonna be loud.

PAPA, Doncat @ The Chapel

Letters To Cleo @ Rickshaw Stop
If you’ve only been introduced to this band via 10 Things I Hate About You or Parks & Recreation, you’d better get yourself to Rickshaw.

DANGERS Thee Parkside
Heavy hooks and pounding drums bound to put an audience’s aural health in harm’s way, DANGERS have one of the most apt names we’ve heard in a while.

LVL UP @ Bottom of the Hill
Lovers of big, chunky ’90s riffs will want to be at Bottom of the Hill for Portland.

Green Day, Dog Party @ The UC Theatre
So does this mean it’s OK to like Green Day again, everyone? Weren’t we mocking them for a good long while? Either way, the Rodeo-born band takes a break from stadium shows to play a cozy set at The UC. Sacramento sibling act Dog Party opens.

Loop 2.4.3 @ Studio Grand
Get out of your own head with this unparalled percussion group who are hellbent on expanding your preconceived definitions of ‘music.’
