Teri’s picks:

Doug Fir Lounge

Chris Margolin & The Dead Bird Collection, and Falcon Heart will both be releasing their debut albums, and you’ll want to catch Glasys before his T-Pain collaboration becomes a reality, because it’s only going to get harder to see the Portland Synth Slayer. He says: “This will be my last Glasys show for a long time, (taking a break to record new music and completely rebuild my live rig).”


The Druthers are back and are their fans ever excited! Known for their “Heart-sweeping folk/pop with his and hers harmonies” this is a band you will love to dance and sing with. This time they are trying out one of Portland’s favorite venues, LaurelThirst Pub. Chris Dugan will open.

If you would like to pre-func at The Thirst, you can do that to the “groovy and gritty roots-rock and Americana sounds” from The Yellers, 6-8 p.m.


Also Saturday night, a dance party will be going on at the Goodfoot where 10 piece band, Jujuba, will be to whip the crowd into a dancing frenzy. Straddling the line between Afrobeat and juju, they offer a full horn section, rubbery bass, and intricate percussion breaks.

From Facebook: “Ants In The Kitchen is NOT your typical rock & roll cover band. They’re 7-piece “horn band” that plays a mix of classic 70’s era funk, blues, and soul…a danceable mix, but with the tone and force of a ROCK band!” They play at the Trails End Saloon this Saturday
