By all accounts, Buddy Holly was the squeakiest-of-clean nice guys. You can hear it in his music: that innocence, which he didn't live long enough to outgrow. The world has become a lot more debauched in the last half century, but that doesn't mean there's no place for rockabilly, especially when it's still being reinvented by the likes of Monarques. Make no mistake: They aren't a cover band or a vintage throwback, and, thank god, they aren't ironic. Monarques' music is jangly and feel good, but it may also have a drug problem. Or possibly a sex addiction. They play alongside Houndstooth, another local band seemingly assembled as an antidote to Willamette Valley vitamin-D deficiency. Headed by Katie Bernstein, they sound like a warm day at the beach—but you really should keep your shoes on, because there might be broken glass or needles. REBECCA WILSON
