The Triple Crown 5/31-6/13












Thursday, June 3rd
Pitchfork Motorway
The Interlopers / The Food
Plan B
Show: 9PM
$5

21+

The face melting garage punk
of Pitchfork Motorway is a rubber burning, fire breathing beast of a thing. With high octane guitars and a redlining drum tempo they’re sure to blow the doors off tonight at Plan B. Oozing with a hot rod sex appeal, this is one of the must catch, of rising Portland bands. Joining them is the low-end guttural punk of the Interlopers. Their aggressively thick music is sure to break away at the foundation so the pitchfork gang can bring the house down. There isn’t anything more age defying than a great punk show so get your weekend started a little bit early and make sure you bring a helmet because this is going to be one hell of a ride.

Mississippi Studios

GA $12+ Fees

With an aching resonance to her voice like a harmonica’s wail, Samantha Crain haunts her music like a restless spirit. Delivered in a soft spoken nature her beautifully scenic songs are breath taking. A natural storyteller, Crain weaves her lyrical tales so tightly to the instrumentation it is hard to imagine one existing without the other. Perfectly matched, Crain is supporting the Swedish duo First Aid Kit; whose eerily lovely music is ripe with rustic simplicity. The intimate locale of Mississippi Studios is a perfect venue for this stunning music and was made for artists such as these. Friday night should hold something magical so leave all your stress at home and let these luscious songstresses ease away your week.

Deadstring Brothers

Dante’s

Early Show

$8

21+


If Mick Jagger and Keith Richards had been raised on the honky-tonk jukeboxes of America, I’m sure they’d sound like the Deadstring Brothers. Like exiles of Main street Nashville, the bluesy rock of this Detroit band has just enough country swagger to drive a pickup truck and win a bar fight. Filled with the sounds of the factories and the ache of hard worked hands, this music digs deep. Fear not though, it also knows how to get the house a rockin’ and that’s just what’s going to happen Sunday night at Dante’s. Opening the Sinferno festivities, the Deadstring Brothers are sure to get the night started off right so bring your appetite for cold beer and strait whiskey because this band is going to throw it down and you don’t want to be the only person without a belly full of fuel for good ol’ rocking time.
