A roving troubadour with a knack for writing truly gorgeous songs, Nick Jaina celebrates full-length album number seven with a little release shindig tonight. Complete with guest orchestration and wondrous pop melodies, A Bird in the Opera House is the most complete recording yet from Jaina, a man with a real gift for the pen. EAC

Nick Jaina isn't the only act on the bill celebrating a record release tonight. Future Historians' newest, If You Slip into the Fog, also sees the light of day, and it's a bighearted folk-pop record that plucks not only the strings of the band's acoustic guitars, but also those of your heart. (Awww.) For those of you keeping score at home (with your mammoth Pete Frame-style diagrams of Portland's music scene), Future Historians frontman Dave Shur also does time as the drummer of the Crosswalks, while guitarist Andrew Stern also plays with Blue Horns. If You Slip into the Fog is a laidback, entirely satisfying record in which every tune is imbued with sunny good vibes. NL
