This show is part of Broken Top Bottle Shop's Brews and Bands series with live music every Sunday night. Butterfly Breakdown's bluesy and soulful sound gives most of their songs an irresistible melody that is hard to shake from your head. ReverbNation voted the band Portland's #1 Indie/Blues/Rock group while also being a part of a Portland-based educational group, mentoring the youth to become the next generation of badass rock stars. 7 pm. Sunday, October 30. Broken Top Bottle Shop, 1740 NW Pence Ln. Suite 1. No cover.
The super badass Rainbow Girls hail from Santa Barbara and create a sound combining the best of surf rock and psych rock with the laid back fuzz-alt Dum Dum Girls, with a dash of Rivers Cuomo-style heart-on-sleeve songwriting. These women have created a band to watch and their new album, Perceptronium is a downright modern American classic filled to the brim with over a dozen of your favorite new songs. Plus, they historically put on the first all-lady show in history at San Francisco's legendary Fillmore, proving that, whether making history or not, they, first and foremost, rock. 8 pm. Thursday, October 29. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $10.
