Great Peacock plays the Annex 8/24

Black Pussy

Black Pussy lands completely on the opposite side of the spectrum of the other Suggests this week. Their name is a probably not something you should Google at work and has evoked petitions calling for boycotts for venues that book them. Name aside, Black Pussy plays psychedelic rock often blended with classic-rock tones and heavy-metal shredding. Not for the faint of heart, but they sure know how to work an electric guitar. 9 pm. Thursday, Aug 20. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $8/adv, $10/door.

Great Peacock

Raised in the South and headquartered in Nashville, Great Peacock finds a delightful middle ground between rootsy Americana and soaring indie pop. Think a more poppy Mumford and Sons. The band blends together instruments normally found in folk or country bands to play catchy pop music. Plenty of acoustic guitar mixes with fiddle and pedal steel to create organic rootsy pop with energy and stage presence to top it all off. Lyrically, Great Peacock is on point, especially on "Tennessee." 9 pm. Monday, Aug 24. The Annex, 51 NW Greenwood Ave. $6/adv, $8/door.

The Ballroom Thieves

From "Archers," the first song on The Ballroom Thieves' debut album A Wolf in the Doorway, listeners will be hooked. "Archers never made good kings, flying head first into everything," the trio sings. Between the lyrical content of their songs, the harmonies, and rootsy-Americana sound, The Ballroom Thieves perfectly blend together all of the necessary elements to create music worth listening to. The trio mixes folk conventions with modern hymnals and gritty Delta blues to create songs that are open and agreeable to the masses. 7 pm. Wednesday, Aug 26. McMenamins Old St. Francis School, 700 NW Bond St. No cover.
