Portland barroom blazers Prize Country

Thursday 15

I’d say you got to go see Los Angelino psych-folk ensemble Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeroes up at Belly Up, but the show’s done sold out. I guess you could go stand on Cedros and look all doe-eyed. And flush. It’d cost you.... In the stead, Fred, a couple of heavyweight indie acts are coming to Casbah in U.K. duo Big Pink and New York noiseniks A Place to Bury Strangers. Big Pink rocks hook-heavy electro-noize on their NME award–winning Brief History of Love. The Strangers’ s/t debut sounds like J&MC’s Ritalin script ran out. Last year’s follow-up, Exploding Head, threatens to become a shoegaze staple. L.A.’s Io Echo will reverb first.... Else: SD’s honky-tonkin’ supergroup Brawley will be at Bar Pink...Portland barroom blazers Prize Country and like-minded locals Long and Short of It rock-roll through Ruby Room...and indie kids the Fascination, the Publicists, and Vinyl Film screen at the Ken Club.
