She Wants Revenge
As spring is beginning to lighten up the dark of winter, so is She Wants Revenge lightening up the genre of "dark dance" music. She Wants Revenge's funky electronic-alternative rock vibe helps you shake off the darkness of winter and embrace the slightly lighter chill of early spring. 9pm, Dante's.
At first listen, Gold Panda strikes Out of Town as being reminiscent of a very technical, yet beautiful Asian-inspired video game. On watching a live performance, the complexity of Gold Panda's musical controls makes watching the controller much more fascinating than watching any game on the screen. Originally from London, Gold Panda lived in Japan and brings a fascinating-to-watch approach to electronically mixed, Asian-inspired music. 9pm, Branx.
Zion 1 and the Grouch
On their Healing of the Nation Tour, Zion 1 and the Grouch come through Portland as they travel the country and inspire listeners with their socially conscious rap lyrics and fresh beats. Some of their recent hits include "Planes & Trains," about trying to stay grounded amidst fame and "One," addressing the similarities of all people in a dance-off sort of way. 9pm, Branx.
This Portland-born music project created by vocalist Lindsie Reitz puts a creative twist on country music. The band incorporates a sweet lyrical sound with interludes of slide guitar and electric banjo to heighten this six-member band's psychedelic feel. Ruby Feathers asks you to walk down to a "Sea with No Name" and "Kill the Man" in their songs. No doubt performing with Brush Fire and Duover will further diversify this eclectic country music set. 9pm, The Woods.
