This weekend!

FRIDAY

All Them Witches are kind of a rockin’ blues band from Nashville… This is nothing but a hunch, but I bet they get really sweaty when they play. I could describe them more eloquently, but why don’t you hit play and listen to them yourself? The Well opens. Bunk Bar, 1028 SE Water Ave * $7 * 9 doors, 9:30 show 

Unfortunately, I missed Deltron 3030’s set at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival last month— but the set looked awesome. Check out the video link. w/ Kid Koala, Tope. Roseland, 8 NW 6th Ave. * $22 * 8 pm

SATURDAY

Motherlode w/Elektrapod (funk-soul-disco-riff rock) is at the Goodfoot.  2845 SE Stark * $7 * 10 pm

Apparently Death in June is credited with the development of the neofolk genre, though they originally started at a post-punk group. Good to know. Alhambra Theatre, 4811 Southeast Hawthorne * $25 pre-sale, $30 door * 8:30 pm doors, 9 pm show

SUNDAY

In 2003, Rachel Corrie was crushed to death by a bulldozer during an action against Israeli demolitions of Palestinian homes. Her mother was interviewed this morning on KBOO about her daughter’s work and a play based on her writings and emails. Ani Haynes’ interview was insightful and incredibly moving, and Cindy Corrie made some important points on the challenges of parenting someone so committed to a cause.  Eliot Chapel at the First Unitarian Church, SW 12th Ave. and Salmon St. * $10 suggested donation * 7 pm
