The 2012 EP from Tango Alpha Tango, Kill & Haight, is spiked with dirty, badass guitar riffs and twangy vocals by Nathan Trueb that punch with attitude. It would be too easy to compare this PDX trio to the Black Keys, but the two bands certainly draw inspiration from the same old-school, bluesy well. Tonight they celebrate the release of Live from the Banana Stand, recorded at the fabled Portland house venue. Catch them with Minden, a newer band to the Portland scene, and one that oozes with an effortless-seeming suaveness that makes them all the more desirable. Their recent LP, Exotic Cakes, offers dreamy songs that are fun and intriguing, and a welcome addition to the ever-expanding sphere of Portland pop. RACHEL MILBAUER
