SHOUT! LOVE A GO-GO: DJ DREW GROOVE, DJ HIPPIE JOE, THE SILVER FOX
(Eagles Lodge, 4904 SE Hawthorne) Nothing makes the heart sing like go-go dancing straight outta 1969. The monthly mod dance night Shout! travels back to the groovy era to make you shake, shimmy, and mashed potato all over the delightful, wood-paneled Eagles Lodge. It will be a winter of love over there, complete with dancers, stiff highballs, and Twiggy miniskirts. COURTNEY FERGUSON


ANIMAL EYES, KHAN HEIR, KYLE CRAFT
(The Know, 2026 NE Alberta) Animal Eyes is what happens when you uproot five lifelong friends from Alaska, and plant them in a city where the music community is thriving and supportive. Their songs range from quiet, explorative ballads to exuberant, shredding peaks, and back again. Animal Eyes' shared vocals make for uniquely textured harmonies, accompanied by an occasional gravelly bellow, exemplifying the scope of their indie-jam rock sound. Their live show is always an infectious, energetic spectacle, and it is quickly apparent that their long personal histories and musical talents thrive off each other. This will be your last chance to catch them play before they embark on a month-long tour to SXSW and Treefort Music Fest. RACHEL MILBAUER
