MUSIC—The mudflap country-rock of Natural Child is perfect for kickin' back, boozin', tokin', or whatever sort of trouble you feel like getting into. If your musical heart lies somewhere between the cow pastures and the punk-rock basement—but cowpunk never made a lick o' sense to you—this Nashville trio is exactly what you've been looking for. NL
w/the Abigails, Joel Magid; Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, 9 pm, $10

MUSIC—Olympia's Elizabeth le Fey makes sui generis lo-fi folk under the name Globelamp, and it's full of nectar-like pleasure. The whimsical, mystic psychedelia on her album Star Dust teems with color and life and buzzing bees, and she plays the second of two back-to-back Portland shows tonight at the (World Famous) Kenton Club.
