Tonight in Music: This Charming Man, Painted Palms

Posted by Arian Jalali on Tue, Jul 26, 2011 at 9:38 AM


THIS CHARMING MAN
(Bunk Bar, 1028 SE Water) The backscrubbers in This Charming Man know a club, if you'd like to go. Just make sure to wear black, 'cause that's how you feel on the inside—but don't kill the DJ, okay? Because it's none other than OPB's Jeremy Petersen on the mic singing all your favorite Smiths hits. Come dance to the songs that saved your life. COURTNEY FERGUSON


PAINTED PALMS, JARED MEES AND THE GROWN CHILDREN, THE GOLDEN HOURS
(Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison) For a new band with just a handful of songs to their name, Painted Palms have garnered plenty of attention. They've inked a deal with Secretly Canadian, held their own while touring with Of Montreal (not easy to do), respectfully covered Dirty Projectors (also not easy), and released an impressive debut EP, Canopy. The San Francisco duo—which swells to a quintet onstage—creates vivid brushstrokes of colorful psych-pop that are as inspiring as they are creative. Joining them will be spirited anthems of Jared Mees and the Grown Children, who are making the rounds in support of the excellent Only Good Thoughts Can Stay. EZRA ACE CARAEFF
