LaurelThirst is a fantastic venue for traditional tunes, grizzled twang, and wildly technical virtuosos. Joining the canon of the Kung Pao Chickens, Freak Mountain Ramblers, Jackstraws, et al, is Portland Country Underground, an impressive local supergroup of sorts, featuring Lewi Longmire, WC Beck, David Lipkind (harmonica wailer extraordinaire of I Can Lick Any Sonofabitch in the House), pedal-steel player Scott Hay and more. Their sets are barnyard sing-alongs and boot-heeled stompers, usually, if not completely, of the mildly obscure cover variety. That's when they're not playing more well-known country tunes like Dwight Yoakam's "Guitars and Cadillacs." Either way, their expert interplay and multi-talented groundwork is a goddamn hoot to behold, and it's up for grabs every week during happy hour on Mondays. RYAN J. PRADO
