1. Bear In Heaven w/ Blouse & Doldrums
Where: Mississippi Studios
How Much: $12
When: Thursday, April 12th – 9pm
Why: An eclectic night of music at the Studios featuring Brooklyn-based progressive psych-pop Bear In Heaven (whose new album, I Love You, It’s Cool, is already receiving positive reviews), hometown dream-pop trio Blouse, and experimental indielectronica from Montreal’s Doldrums. This show is sure to sell out so make sure you get your music-loving butts there early to secure your spot!
2. Orca Team w/ PinkSlime & The Cry
Where: Ella St. Social Club
How Much: $5
When: Friday, April 13th – 9pm
Why: With a busy year of touring ahead of them (an estimated 150 shows), we’re lucky to have Portland’s long lost poppy surf-rock trio pay us a visit. Showcasing some new tunes off their upcoming June 14th entitled Restraint, you’ll want to wear your snazziest dancing shoes to try and keep up with the ever fashionable Ocra Team. Joining the night’s festivities: garage punk trio PinkSlime (formally Pleassure) and powerpop quartet The Cry.
3. Still Caves w/ Psychic Feline
How Much: Absolutely free!
When: Sunday, April 15th – 9pm
Why: Rontoms Sunday Sessions have been killing it lately, and this week is no different with up and coming experimental garage-psych outfit Still Caves. Hot off the press is the release of their debut EP, Static Lips. Pay what you want here, but don’t be stingy–these guys need dollars to record a full-length! With Psychic Feline on the bill, this is a no-brainer. See you on Sunday!
