Guantanamo Baywatch

w/ Big Bad & Dirt Friends (Doors at 8pm, FREE, 21+)

Portland’s Guantanamo Baywatch have built their reputation on wrangling up a ribald mishmash of classic surf instrumentation and brash garage rock. On the one hand, you could view this adherence to the rudiments of rock n’ roll as more of an homage than an artistic stride. Yes, the trio owes a hat tip to Dick Dale’s guitar licks and The Sonics’ primitive blown-out strut. But who cares about reference points anyways? You have to see these cats live to truly understand.

the rocketboys

The Rocketboys

w/ Fairweatherfriend & Talent Scout (Doors at 8pm, FREE, 21+)

The Rocketboys’ sound reflects the Texas landscape from which they hail: vast, yet sparse, desolate, yet rich and abundant. Familiar lyrical themes of romance and love are often eschewed in favor of songs of brotherhood, family, life, and death in the band’s dynamic musical array, from guitar- and keyboard-rich anthems to gentle, ethereal whispers.

Tom Russell in the Copper Hall

(Doors at 7pm, $25/$27, 21+)

Tom Russell is a master storyteller and Mesabi, his new release for Shout! Factory corrals some of the acclaimed singer-songwriter’s most compelling tales to date. A thread runs through its songs, a zigzagging but determinedly solid line that connects the perilous bordertown of Juarez, Mexico to the real and faux glitz of L.A. and the bleak iron range of Minnesota—the Mesabi of the album’s title.
