Dave Alvin and the Guilty Ones, Marshall Crenshaw

JEFF ROSENBERG
8 pm., Wednesday February 27 | $25.
Aladdin Theater
3017 SE Milwaukie Ave.
 

[OLD POP MEETS NEW TECH] Marshall Crenshaw’s a forward-facing pop classicist. Those early Buddy Holly comparisons were apt, but his songs revamped old sounds with a modern mindset and sonic gloss. Three decades into a career that’s taken place largely under the radar, his newest venture is likewise both up-to-the-minute and rooted in rock’n’roll past. It’s a series of 10-inch vinyl EPs, each featuring one new Crenshaw original, one reworking of an earlier song from his catalog and a classic cover tune. The project’s definitely somewhat nostalgic in nature, but the old-school approach was initially funded through a Kickstarter campaign, and the EPs are sold online via a three-disc-per-year subscription. Once and future Blaster Dave Alvin, meanwhile, isn’t compelled to be contemporary: His rural-rock roots remain firmly fixed to the earth.
