Source Suggests 4/15-4/22 

Shawn James & The Shapeshifters

Shawn James & The Shapeshifters fulfill the promise their name suggests by shifting sound with every album. While maintaining the same rock and roll musical momentum, the band can play softer, more folky and soulful songs like "Pendulum Swim" from their Deliverance album. Their most recent album, The Gospel According to Shawn James and the Shapeshifters, takes on a harder rock sound. James' vocals border on those of a heavy metal band, but that might just be his throaty rasp. Either way, James has ultimate control of his vocal instrument and manipulates it based on the feeling he wants to convey. Woebegone opens. 10 pm. Friday, April 17. Astro Lounge, 939 NW Bond St. $5/adv., $8/door.

Hot Buttered Rum

When it comes to folk and progressive bluegrass, Hot Buttered Rum is a perennial favorite. Appropriately named, the San Francisco-based band is delicious, warm, and sweet, playing catchy bluegrass songs that capitalize on memorable lyrics, harmonizing vocals, and danceable music from its varied stringed instruments. Like most folk and bluegrass, Hot Bummer Rum's music begs to be heard live and for listeners to get up to their feet. 8pm. Saturday, April 18. The Belfry, 302 East Main Ave., Sisters. $16/adv., $20/door.

Cats Under the Stars

Sometimes a band name jumps out at you. Cats Under the Stars does just that. Imagine cats just hanging out under the stars!? What are they doing and why? Their name alone inspires potential listeners to find out more. Cats Under the Stars is a Jerry Garcia tribute band. While most Jerry Garcia tribute bands play the songs of the Grateful Dead, Cats Under the Stars plays songs from the Jerry Garcia Band with as much authenticity as possible to capture the funky, rock jams for which they were known. 8 pm. Sun, April 19. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $5.
