Out of Town: Minus the Bear, World Reggae Fest, Mickey Avalon 

A roundup of music in Portland and beyond.

friday 17

Minus the Bear, Empty Space Orchestra Seattle indie-rock band Minus the Bear is currently offering a free six-song download on their website from the Hold Me Down EP. A synth feel with plenty of keys, some prog-rock and futurama electronica mark the sound from their 2011 album, Omni (My Time is a dope track - rocking and sensual). Bend's own Empty Space Orchestra opens the show. 9pm, Wonder Ballroom.

saturday 18

Minus the Bear, Empty Space Orchestra Notable because, A) they're awesome and B) front man Lucas Alberg just moved to Bend and hopes to soon be playing local gigs with his roots-rock quartet. Check out their songs "California" (featuring some excellent banjo) and "Cocaine Woman," and go see them as soon as you have the chance. Like this weekend.

9pm, Laurelthirst Pub

wednesday 22, thursday 23

Mickey Avalon Come watch him do the Jane Fonda at Dante's - a NW Portland bar that doubles as a hipster-girl strip club/burlesque venue which serves up pizza on the side. Often trashy, but generally catchy and amusing, songs of girls and drugs dominate Avalon's rap-rock lyrics. "I've got a lot of led in my zeppelin," he sings. 9pm both nights, Dante's.

boonville, calif.

friday 17, saturday 18, sunday 19

Sierra Nevada World Music Festival Toots & The Maytals, Steel Pulse, Ozomatli, Pablo Moses, Anthony B and lots more roots reggae and dubbed-out dancehall. On-site camping is sold out but the fellers at Anderson Valley Brewing are offering alternatives. Perfect. Three days of praising Jah and sinsemilla. See snwmf.com for more info. Mendocino County Fairgrounds.
