What’s Going On: 10/09 – 10/16

1. Bear & Moose w/ Souvenir Driver & Talkative
Where: Holocene
How Much: $5
When: Wednesday, October 9th – 8:30pm
Why: A trifecta of amazing Portland bands on one bill for a measly $5? I doubt you will need much more convincing here, but just in case…this will be Bear & Moose’s last show for a while. The band has been working hard to deliver sounds you haven’t heard from them yet. Come rock out to their latest tunes with the equally awesome Souvenir Driver and Talkative opening.

2. Lumerians w/ Tjutjuna & Swahili 
Where: Bunk Bar
How Much: $8/$10
When: Thursday, October 10th – 9pm
Why: Do you have your tickets yet? No? Well, don’t procrastinate on this one, folks because this show will surely sell out. San Francisco’s psychedelic space rockers, Lumerians, will bend walls of sound and minds alike. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to experience this 5-piece in an intimate setting.

2a. Guitar Wolf w/ The Coathangers, Coward & The No Tomorrow Boys
Where: Dante’s
How Much: $13.50
When: Thursday, October 10th – 9pm
Why: This Japanese garage rock power trio has been releasing albums since before most of you were born. Think of The Ramones, Link Wray, a mash-up of rockabilly, punk, and garage rock, and you get Guitar Wolf. All-female Atlanta quartet, The Coathangers, will get you in the punk rockin’ mood with their devil-may-care attitude, hypnotic basslines, and sassy vocals.

Where: Alhambra Theater
How Much: $5/$7
