You Knew Me When
In June 2012, Cie and Karisa Hoover uprooted from their full time jobs and Nashville home in order to tour the country for a full year. But what started as a year for the married duo hasn't stopped. They continue to play their progressive blend of indie rock and folk in venues across the nation. With the recent release of their second album, We Found Roads, the duo writes about leaving everything behind and finding new paths together. With beautiful, soulful harmonies, it feels as though there's a full band playing a sound that often incorporates a ukulele and glockenspiel. 10:30 pm. Friday, April 24. Astro Lounge, 939 NW Bond St. $3.
Maestro and the Captain's Flat 5 Flim Flam
While Maestro and the Captain's Flat 5 Flim Flam's name may be a mouthful to say, words won't be necessary on Saturday night. The band's original songs incorporate modern jazz sounds with vintage, acoustic swing to create a highly danceable set of tunes that keep feet moving and hips swaying. The band takes influences from the swing and jazz music of the '30s and '40s, while writing songs all their own. Dust off your fancy dancing shoes and grab a partner for a swinging evening highlighted by new old-timey sounds. 7-9 pm. Saturday, April 25. Broken Top Bottle Shop, 1740 NW Pence Ln Ste. 1. No cover.
Miss Massive Snowflake
Weaving together songs with a variety of musical influences, Portland's Miss Massive Snowflake truly has a unique sound. From orchestral jazz, candy pop, and free-spirited psychedelic rock to boy band punk, Miss Massive Snowflake experiments freely to create a wide spectrum of catchy, energetic rock and pop songs. The band has played more than 500 shows in 10 countries, so has a refined, live sound and presence. Wednesday, April 29. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $5.
