Want to see some live music tonight? Here are your best options, curated by the Willamette Week music staff.
FRIDAY, NOV. 27
Dirty Revival, Philly's Phunkestra
[BIG BRASS] Portland's Dirty Revival just releases its self-titled debut. An energetic mix of soul, hip-hop and plenty of brass, it's a boisterous, hard-to-contain sound that resides somewhere between the Roots and Sharon Jones. The quintet draws from jazz, funk and big-band routines as well, affording a depth and quality that can't quite be timestamped. Frontwoman Sarah Clarke has the pipes of a massive church organ, throwing powerful gusts that will knock the beanie right off your head. MARK STOCK. Doug Fir Lounge, 830 E Burnside St. 9 pm. $15. 21+.
The Curtis Salgado Band
[DAD BLUES] Curtis Salgado has a super-massive soul. The blues singer became the inspiration for The Blues Brothers after meeting John Belushi as he was filmingAnimal House, and his cool, collected stage presence is the stuff of local legend. Now an elder statesman on the Portland scene, Salgado's gravelly tenor and clean harmonica tone pairs well with his bowling shirts. He plays the sort of blues that your dad puts on while telling you about the good ol' days. It's not groundbreaking stuff, but the classics are well executed, and the band is filled with some of the heaviest hitters in the region. PARKER HALL. Jimmy Mak's, 221 NW 10th Ave. 8 pm. $25. Under 21 permitted until 9:30 pm.
The Domestics, Esmé Patterson, Sunbathe
[INDIE FOLK-POP] This showcase features three local bands with extra-Portland reach. The Domestics have since been heralded as one of the best new bands in town, based on its earnest narratives and textured arrangements, while Esmé Patterson, one of the founding members of Americana septet Paper Bird, has released two solo albums, the raw All Princes, I in 2011and concept record Woman to Woman in 2014. She's since moved from Denver to Portland, and has earned a reputation through collaborating with Shakey Graves on last year'sAnd The War Came. Finally, Sunbathe represents the solo project of Genders' Maggie Morris. Although the alt-rock trio—a Best New Band finalist in 2013—has toured with bands like Built to Spill, Morris' solo work shows a softer, more emotional side to the singer/guitarist. HILARY SAUNDERS. Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi Ave. 9 pm. $10. 21+.
