Blue Turtle Seduction
Since we last interviewed Blue Turtle Seduction for a feature in April, we've caught about four different sets from the Lake Tahoe band and also checked out their new record, 13 Floors. And we can tell you one thing: these guys are firing on all cylinders right now, and one of those cylinders seems to be filled with hip-hop, a newly added element to the band's Americana-flavored attack. Yeah you probably saw them at 4 Peaks, but see them again - indoors this time! 10:30pm. $12/door only. The Annex, 51 NW Greenwood Ave.

Visit their MySpace page (myspace.com/spacehoax) listen to these teenagers' song, "Glass Ball Weather," be impressed and then go check them out. All ages. 6pm. Silver Moon Brewing Co., 24 NW Greenwood Ave.
