1. Blind Pilot w/ Point Juncture, WA
Where: Crystal Ballroom
How Much: $20
When: Wednesday, November 23 –7pm
Why: The Portland-based folk-pop group makes a stop at home while on their cross-country tour in support of the late summer release, We Are the Tide. The sophomore effort has been a consistent top-seller at Music Millennium and it’s no secret their heartfelt music makes it easy to instigate sing-alongs at their live shows.
2. Animal Eyes w/ Slow Trucks & Pony Village
Where: The Woods
How Much: $5
When: Friday, November 25 – 8:30pm
Why: Worldly indie rock that will move you and groove you with their beautiful harmonies and enthusiastic live performance. Get there early to enjoy the guitar-heavy sounds of San Francisco trio, Slow Trucks (reminiscent of Pavement and Built To Spill), and twangy indie-rock from Portland quartet Pony Village.
3. Into The Woods Quarterly
Where: Mississippi Studios
How Much: $5
When: Sunday, November 27 –9pm
Why: Showcasing some of the areas newest and brightest talents, this year’s second quarterly will feature the mind-blowing sounds of Hosannas (formerly Church), Sun Angle, Log Across the Washer, and Support Force. ITW will premiere the first episode of their new series, “Favorite Places” starring Hosannas and the 2,000-year old Ape Cave. If that wasn’t enough to get your foot in the door, Archers guitarist, Chris Cantino, will DJ the event.

Catch them tonight with Federale and tomorrow with Kelli Schaefer.
