DIVERS, BRONCHO, THE BLANK TAPES, JARET FERRATUSCO
(Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside) The ardent punk rock of Divers is without match in this city, making the Portland quartet one of the absolute must-see bands around town. With only a 7-inch to their name, they already command a flawless repertoire of torn-jean, frayed-heart, gasoline-dipped songs that'll make you shout along 'til you're hoarse. NED LANNAMANN
MARCH FOURTH MARCHING BAND, GAMELAN X, DJ GLOBALRUCKUS
(Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside) If you're a resident of Portland and still haven't seen the funnest, badassiest brass 'n' drums band in town, do yourself a favor and celebrate MarchFourth Marching Band's 10th anniversary! Mixing funk, jazz, and rock with vaudevillian theatrics, costumes, and tons of get-down energy, they're what Portland is all about. Happy birthday, band! WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY™
