Source Suggests 5/3-5/13 

All You All

Just cue up the single "Supernatural." Yeah, insanely talented! And local! "Innocence of Coincidence" has a garage rock sound distinctly its own, yet slightly reminiscent of The Black Keys. Blending psychedelia and garage rock, in a vein similar to The Dead Weather, All You All plays songs that inspire modest head banging and hip swaying. MoonRoom also perform. 9 pm. Thursday, May 7. Volcanic Theater Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $5.

The Mondegreens

Youthful exuberance? Tight harmonies? A blend of heartfelt folk and modern indie rock? Do we need to go on? Think Fleet Foxes and The Avett Brothers meet Radiohead. The Mondegreens, four friends with a common belief in honest music, create just that. The band blends exposingly honest lyrics with tight harmonies to create an inspiring and unabashedly indie sound. The Chico-based band's album, Kid Tell Time, plays solidly through, with a little something for everyone—at least everyone who enjoys classic folk and indie rock. It might be tough to see this up and coming band again for free. 7 pm. Saturday, May 9. Broken Top Bottle Shop, 1740 NW Pence Ln #1. No cover.

The English Beat

Remember The English Beat? The ska band that also combines reggae and new wave beats to create incredibly danceable beats formed in 1978, and hadn't release a new album since 1982's Special Beat Service. Last year, the band's lead singer, Dave Wakeling, started a PledgeMusic campaign (think KickStarter for albums) to raise funds to record the band's first new album in 32 years. Now, The English Beat returns to touring to bring its funky ska beats to a new generation of skanking rude boys and girls. Don't worry, that's not offensive; when you dance to ska music it's called skanking, not dancing. 8 pm. Wednesday, May 13. Tower Theatre, 835 NW Wall St. $37, plus $2 historical preservation fee.
