Cash'd Out

Mediocre cover bands may be a dime a dozen, but the ones that truly capture the essence of an iconic performer are rare. Cash'd Out—led by Douglas Benson standing in for the Man in Black, Johnny Cash—is one of those bands. Close your eyes and you might believe you've been visited by the ghost of the influential country icon. It's no wonder Cash'd Out is an apparent favorite of the Cash family, playing at a birthday celebration at the Fender Museum alongside Cash's longtime drummer W.S. Holland. 9 pm. Mississippi Studios. $15-$18.

Kishi Bishi

On the tails of his just-released sophomore album, Lighght, Kishi Bishi brings his critically-acclaimed loop-based live performance to Portland. The violinist, singer, and composer was dubbed NPR's "Best New Artist" in 2012 and has toured with the likes of Regina Spektor, Sondre Lerche, and of Montreal. Light-hearted and ethereal, Kishi Bishi's music is reminiscent of the poppy and peculiar soundtrack to the video game Katamari Damacy (in which tiny creatures attempt to roll up the contents of the world to create stars and planets). The video for "Philosophize In It! Chemicalize With It!" seems similarly inspired, with its rainbow sperm and DNA strands floating through space, clapping children, and kaleidoscopic colors. 7:30 pm. Wonder Ballroom. $15.

"Little Big Show" featuring Cloud Cult

"Little Bog Show" is a concert series that raises funds for local nonprofits. Cloud Cult headlines show No. 9, benefiting Hugo House Youth Programs, and featuring guest Benjamin Verdoes. Cloud Cult isn't new to the nonprofit scene—frontman Craig Minowa founded an environmental organization called Earthology in 1999 and writes scores for National Geographic documentaries. And though the eclectic band has recorded most of its albums on a remote organic farm, it has garnered critical and mainstream media acclaim for its experimental rock that ponders big questions. 8 pm. Neptune Theatre. $15.


friday 16 and saturday 17

Fisherman's Village Music Festival

Drawing on the success of local artists, such as Moondoggies and Mary Lambert, as well as the growth of urban music festivals like Austin's SXSW, Portland's MusicFest NW and Boise's Treefort Music Festival, Everett enters the scene with its inaugural Fisherman's Village Music Festival. Featuring a strong lineup of regional favorites, including Wampire, Radiation City, Lemolo, Magic Mouth, and Hobosexual, Fisherman's debut bodes well for the future of Everett's music scene. Various times and locations in downtown Everett. $50 for main stage and shipyard only, $65 for weekend wristband.
