The Source Suggests

Hillstomp

Washboards and buckets provide the percussive backbone to this Portland blues duo, as Hurricane Henry picks out syncopated simplicity on guitar and howls down the devil. It's just hard to tell if Hillstomp's warning against Satan or summoning him with its ruckus. (DJC)

8 pm., Fri., May 23.

The Belfry, 302 E Main St., Sisters. $8 advance, $10 at the door.

DJ Barisone

The former Bendite and DJ extraordinaire returns to town, offering a confluence of electronica, hip-hop and sampled puzzle pieces pulled from Jamaican recordings. Local DJ Ells opens the show and chops up classic hip-hop, reducing seminal works to a synthetic minimalism that are sometimes barely recognizable, but still capable of rattling speaker cabinets. (DJC)

10 pm., Fri., May 23.

Dojo, 852 NW Brooks St. $3.

Ruins of Ooah

Drums and didgeridoo rhythm section? We're sold. Eugene's Ruins of Ooah offers the right balance of oddball and blues, with the group's front man growling lyrics between bouts with his harmonica. It's a surprisingly heavy sound from such a bizarre pastiche of world culture, one that's more cohesive than it should be. (DJC)

9 pm., Sat., May 24.

Volcanic Theater Pub, 70 SW

Century Dr. $5.
