The von Trapps
When you're the great-grandchildren of the infamous Captain and Maria von Trapp, there's somewhat of a legacy to honor, which explains why siblings Sofia, Melanie, Amanda, and August have banded together. The von Trapps combine folk and pop for a classical and global sound. Having relocated to Portland, the band recruited Israel Nebeker, the lead singer and songwriter of Blind Pilot, to produce their first album in this incarnation of the band. 7 pm. Wednesday, October 7. McMenamins Old St. Francis School, 700 NW Bond St. No cover.
Goddamn Gallows, Dirty Kid Discount, Harley Bourbon
As one of the most recognizable names in the psychobilly-country scene, The Goddamn Gallows have fine tuned their self-described twanged-out punk rock gutterbilly. The familiar rasp in the vocals, and the addition of a banjo, mandolin, washboard, and accordion all add up to an Americana punk sound that has heads banging in a synchronistic yet psychotic fashion. Joined by local outlaw country/rock favorites Harley Bourbon and Portland-based gypsy rockers Dirty Kid Discount, look forward to a hard-rocking night of alt-punk and alt-country. 8 pm. Wednesday, October 7. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $8/adv., $10/door.
