It's Happening Tonight!

Posted by Alison Hallett on Wed, Jan 8, 2014 at 2:27 PM


MUSIC—Those Wainwrights just keep coming! Lucy Wainwright Roche (brother of Martha and Rufus, daughter of Loudon III, along with musician mother Suzzy Roche). It will shock nobody that this Wainwright traffics in soothing, acoustically arranged songs, but the crystalline quality of her voice and earnestness of her lyrics will perk you up. MS
w/Shelley Short; Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, 8 pm, $10-12

MUSIC—Drive-By Truckers frontman Patterson Hood makes no secret of his admiration for Portland writer/musician Willy Vlautin. He even wrote a song about a character from Vlautin's forthcoming novel, The Free. Tonight, with Hood starting a three-week residency at the Doug Fir, their musical worlds collide—Hood's beloved alt-country twang, Vlautin's more rock-centered sensibility, and some hardscrabble tales. DVH
Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside, 9 pm, $12-14
