The Lovesores, the Needful Longings, Bitch School

MATTHEW SINGER
9 pm., Friday November 30 | Free.
Club 21
2035 NE Glisan St.
 
[STREET PUNK] Featuring ex-members of ’70s-style trad-punk throwbacks such as the Humpers and the Fast Takers, the Lovesores continue on in that vein, playing tight, twitchy rock’n’roll with a streetwise swagger. In this case, the specific street in question is Portland’s own desolation row, 82nd Avenue, which the Stumptown band mythologizes on standout track “82nd Ave. Breakdown,” four minutes of clenched-fist power chords, breakneck solos and singer Scott “Deluxe” Drake sneering, “It’s hard to be a whore in the city.” It’s deliberately retroactive punk rock, but when it’s delivered with this much skill and energy, it simply becomes timeless.
