Tonight in Music: Galactic, Palo Verde, Bad Sports

Posted by Ethan Jayne on Mon, Jul 5, 2010 at 9:00 AM

WATERFRONT BLUES FEST: GALACTIC, LITTLE FEAT, JJ GREY & MOFRO, ROBBIE LAWS BIGGER BLUES BAND, DANI PAGE GROUP (Tom McCall Waterfront Park, 1020 SW Naito) BLUES YOU CAN USE—Okay, the Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival will never be mistaken for cutting edge. But here are a few reasons you won't want to dismiss it entirely: Taj Mahal and Trombone Shorty on Friday, Booker T on Saturday, Commander Cody on Sunday, and today, the grand finale with Galactic and Little Feat—not to mention there are worse ways to spend your time than in the sun by the riverside.

PALO VERDE, PLUVIAL, TYRANT (Ducketts Public House, 825 N Killingsworth) Everyone's favorite female improv sludge rock duo brings the noise to North Portland tonight. Hopefully you got a copy of Palo Verde's first and only hard copy release, History for the Rest of Eternity, out last month on their own record label Drunken Beagle. Drummer Lauren K. Newman combines her musical skills with guitarist Terrica Kleinknecht in live collaborations that bring brutal drum solos and bruising, pedal-fed riffage to the sonic limits. If you missed out on History for the Rest of Eternity, don't worry; a fresh batch of songs are yet to be born at each new show. MB

BAD SPORTS, THE POLAROIDS, TRASH TV, BLOOD BEACH (Slabtown, 1033 NW 16th)
