The Two Gentlemen of Verona

Director Sarah Rasmussen flips the script of the classical all-male portrayals of Shakespeare's works with fully female casts in Oregon Shakespeare Festival's production of The Two Gentlemen of Verona. It may be the oldest romantic story in the book—boy meets girl, boy meets best friend's girl; betrayal and drama ensue. The much-analyzed silence of one of these women, Sylvia, gets a new interpretation when seen through a feminine lens. 8 pm. Allen Elizabethan Theatre. $25-$102.

The Railsplitters with John Craigie

The Colorado-based bluegrass band harnesses powerful vocals and unconventional instrumentation to create a raw, soulful sound that gets people off their feet onto the dance floor. And in case you weren't sure if they were legit—one of the band members is named Dusty Ryder (no, joke). They've also racked up a few awards in their three years of existence, including at the 2012 Pickin' in the Pines and the 2013 RockyGrass. 7:30 pm. COZMIC. $10-$12.

Veruca Salt

All four original members of the alt-rock band named after the brattiest of the spoiled children in Roald Dahl's classic "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" are reuniting and on tour together for the first time since 1995. They claim to have buried the hatchets of their former disputes and have even collaborated on an album that includes their first new material in 14 years. So crank up "Seether" and get ready to travel back to grungier days. 8 pm. Mississippi Studios. $22-$25.

Fitz and the Tantrums

The rising stars in this neo-soul/indie band have received critical acclaim and have been lauded for their work ethic. And the hard work has paid off; the band's catchy tunes have popped up in everything from skateboarding videos and video games to TV shows and commercials. But unlike other indie bands, Fitz and the Tantrums shift the spotlight from the guitar to the brass section, in a nod to their soul roots. 8:30 pm. The Roseland Theatre. $25-$35.
