Another lo-fi update this week, folks. Not enough hours in the day!
–Likable alt-folk band The Farewell Drifters will play twice at McMenamins next week. My colleague David Jasper spoke to ‘em and wrote about ‘em.
–Click here for my review of last weekend’s sold-out Beats Antique show at Midtown Ballroom. Short version: Good show, epic scene. You can also watch four videos I shot of the band right here.
Elsewhere in this week’s music section: David Rovics, Bill Valenti and more play an Occupy the Music concert at the Tower Theatre, VTRN headlines a highly danceable bill tonight at The Astro Lounge, The Melodramatics and Necktie Killer are gonna fill Players with ska Saturday night, Portland Cello Project plays a benefit for Summit High School’s music program, Martyn Joseph returns to Sisters for a show at the high school, and tickets for The Shins and Beck at Les Schwab Amphitheater are on sale now. There’s more in there, too. Just poke around for a bit, we don’t mind.
