Gabi hails from Phoenix, Arizona, and plays what they call “sensitive rock.” That’s a pretty accurate description—it’s delicate but surprisingly powerful, not unlike the music of Frankie Cosmos and Portland’s own Boreen, who’ll open tonight’s show. The group is headed by songwriter Gabi Manning, whose Bandcamp collections of lo-fi tracks make tenderness seem like a superpower, especially with their 2016 debut, Sea Glass. On standouts like “Olympian Heartbreaker” and “House on Stilts,” fuzzy TV samples and field recordings of wind chimes add texture to the gentle melodies. Just this month Manning released a short concept album of five sweet love songs inspired by Crushes. Fans of up-and-coming indie, this bill’s for you. CIARA DOLAN
