Source Suggests 6/18-6/24 

Steel Pulse

The band formed in 1975 in the Handsworth area of Birmingham, England, and was the first non-Jamaican act to win the Grammy for Best Reggae Album. Steel Pulse is known for political, protest-minded music, which over the years has evolved with the reggae genre. Taking on a more dancehall and hip-hop vibe and incorporating synthesizers in the '80s, Steel Pulse maintains a signature reggae sound while keeping up with trends in the genre. Steel Pulse is joined by special guests Neil Mangicaro & the Current, DJ Raiser, and The Colonel. 9 pm. Thursday, June 18. Midtown Ballroom, 51 NW Greenwood Ave. $27/adv., $30/door.

Rhythm Dragons

There's just something about rockabilly that draws listeners in, and Rhythm Dragons hold true to that same standard. The bluesy, high-energy rock and roll keeps bodies moving with a certain twang. With songs like "Catch a Buzz" and the theatrical and spooky "Monster Thang," concertgoers are treated to incredibly dance-worthy tunes to cut loose and rock out to. The Arizona-based band blends swing, punk, jazz, surf, country, and Americana into their unique rockabilly concoction. Big Evil opens. 9 pm. Thursday, June 18. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $5.

The Red Paintings

The live experience of Australia's The Red Paintings is not to be missed. The artistic, orchestral, experimental rock band features live painting and multimedia performance art whenever possible. Local artists paint the band's live energy on stage in real time. The Red Paintings dress in costume, have conceptual stage shows, and the live painting can sometimes include human canvases. The combination of live painting with their experimental baroque-pop sound stimulates the senses and minds of their audiences. Bend's ambient, acoustic, experimental band Third Seven opens. 8 pm. Wednesday, June 24. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $8/adv, $10/door.
