Portugal. The Man

Word is that this band of former Alaskans never plays the same show twice, which is great for those of you who've had the pleasure of seeing them before. Portugal. The Man plays experimental, alt-rock and bring to mind bands like Muse and Grizzly Bear when playing their mellow yet completely rocking tunes. 9pm Roseland Theater.

Fleet Foxes

If you haven't already, you really need to get over to NPR.org and stream the new album, called Helplessness Blues by Seattle folk rock revivalists Fleet Foxes. The band is in Portland this weekend to celebrate the impending release of the record (due out on May 3), but the damn show is sold out! If you have tickets and are heading over for the show, you're lucky, because you're going to see a band that very well may have made the best record of 2011. 9pm, Crystal Ballrom.

monday 2 & tuesday 3

Menomena

Sometimes Out of Town is drawn to a band simply for its name alone, and then when we take a listen and they happen to be awesome, we're pleasantly vindicated in our musical choices. Portland-based indie rockers Menomena happen to be one of those bands. Menomena plays experimental indie rock with an electronic influence and word is they are pretty awesome live. 8:30pm on Monday, 9pm on Tuesday, Doug Fir Lounge.

McMenamins Crystal Hotel Grand Opening with M. Ward

Many of us have had the great pleasure of catching a show at McMenamins' Crystal Ballroom, and now with the opening of the Crystal Hotel your experience can spill over to the next morning. McMenamins hosts a three-day grand opening extravaganza, which features some of Portland's most acclaimed musicians. M. Ward, who you might recognize as being one half of She & Him, anchors the festival playing with the Corin Tucker Band (of Sleater-Kinney) on Tuesday, David Bazan (of Pedro the Lion) on Wednesday, and Doug Martsch (of Built to Spill) on Thursday. Crystal Ballroom.
