March 5: Pure Country Gold at Slabtown

Pure Country Gold, Slabtown, Portland, OregonWednesday is the new Thursday is the new Friday, so go see this show. From Sam Soule:

Birthday Suits (Minneapolis, MN)
The Fall-Outs (Seattle)

Pure Country Gold (Portland)

The Unnatural Helpers (Seattle)

BIRTHDAY SUITS
“The band's message is perfectly clear: Rock ‘n' roll is fun again. Birthday Suits trim away all of the fatty pretentiousness that clogs the heart of most modern, indie and emo rock, and leave you with little more than a fistful of raucous anthems and the urge to jump on the sofa. It's not rocket science-but it isn't supposed to be.” [Nice and Neat]

THE FALL-OUTS
“Undeniably one the (great) 90s garage rock revivalist benefactors… Dave Holmes' signature stringy, treble-loaded and high-energy guitar sound paved the way for countless bands to follow.” [Victim of Time]
PURE COUNTRY GOLD
Doesn't everybody in Portland love this band, yet?
UNNATURAL HELPERS
“Unnatural Helpers blast away with intense, chaotic punk mini-gems, many shorter than a minute. Singer-drummer Dean Whitmore has surrounded himself with some of Seattle's strongest musicians.” [nwsource]
