What’s Going On: 03/28 – 04/04

1. Fine Pets w/ The Dead Beat & Industrial Park
Where: Valentine’s
How Much: Free
When: Wednesday, March 28th–9pm
Why: According to Facebook, the elusive Woody Allen will be there. If that’s not enough to intrigue you, rising from the ashes of Best Supporting Actress comes newly formed Fine Pets. They describe their sound as “waves of prickling treble…warbled screams and distant melodies”. And even wetter behind the ears are newcomers The Dead Beat; an all-girl shoegazy quartet with influences like Black Tambourine, The Jesus and Mary Chain, and My Bloody Valentine.

2. YACHT w/ Onuinu & Key Losers
Where: Mississippi Studios
How Much: $11
When: Thursday, March 29th–8pm
Why: ELEVEN PDX and Mississippi Studios present the first in a series of quarterly shows! We’re just a little excited about this adventure we’re embarking on with our friends Mississippi Studios, and what better way to kick off the series than an evening with YACHT! But just don’t show up late for the band you already know and love, come early for the love affair you’re about to start with the electro-pop disco-hop sounds of Onuinu. Key Losers, the new music project from singer/songwriter/guitarist (and only constant member) Katy Davidson, will kick of the night with melody-driven music.

3. Los Vigilantes w/ Therapists, Denizens & Scavengercunt
Where: East End
How Much: $5
When: Saturday, March 31st-9pm
Why: Visiting us all the way from Puerto Rico is gritty garage rock quartet Los Vigilantes! If you’re a fan of Black Lips or Davila 666, this show is the closest you’re gonna get! Therapists will be joining this night of debauchery playing some new tunes for us. Get there early for Scavengercunt and Denizens! Ring in the new month with 4 rad bands for only $5!
