City Girl and Blowout

Red & Black Cafe (map) Southeast
Sat., June 14, 7 p.m. 2014 21+

Portland band Blowout could only come from the Northwest. Following a long tradition of bands whose take on punk comes with a weighted brooding that's particular to this part of the country, Blowout's music is celebratory and heartbreaking in equal measure. Channeling long-forgotten '90s greats like Seattle's Kill Sybil and Portland's Hazel, the group has an almost ethereal dreaminess lingering beneath its straightforward surface. The five songs on their debut EP, We All Float Down Here, are carried by the perfectly understated vocals of Laken Wright, and insist to be played on repeat. JOSHUA JAMES AMBERSON
