Tonight in Music: Little Wings, Pigeons, On the Stairs, and more

Posted by Colleen Smyth on Sun, Mar 13, 2011 at 3:22 PM


LITTLE WINGS, MICHAEL HURLEY, WHITE RAINBOW

(Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison) Read our article on Little Wings.


PIGEONS, JOSEPH GIANT, WILD ONES

(Rontoms, 600 E Burnside) Not just another strummy folk-rock band, Pigeons' music grows like wild, sprawling weeds, touching different pockets of Americana with urgency and grace, as evidenced on the Portland band's splendid debut, The Talking Wire—available for free right now on the band's Bandcamp page.

TRAIN WHISTLE FEST: ON THE STAIRS, KELLY BLAIR BAUMAN, SEA BELL, HUCK NOTARI, JARAD MILES, BRIAN KUNKEL, JON WILLIAMS

(Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi) The Train Whistle Test is a fine Portland-based podcast focused not on the sounds of the rails, but on this city's bevy of talented (and underappreciated) singer/songwriters. Past guests have included everyone from Leonard Mynx to Lana Rebel, and tonight they'll lasso up a half-dozen of Portland's finest songwriters for an evening split between acoustic sets (Jon Gary Williams with Brian Kunkel, Jarad Miles, Huck Notari, Sea Bell) and full band performances from Kelly Blair Bauman and On the Stairs, the latter of which is fronted by Nate Clark, who recently released A Muted Dawn, a bold and brass-heavy sophomore recording that deserves your attention.
