Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside have been on the road a lot lately, including a French tour earlier this summer that was largely sold out, and more recently a cross-country tour that brought their juke-joint swing to many an intimate American venue. The band's debut, Dirty Radio, was digitally reissued in late August with two previously unreleased tracks chosen by fan vote. One of those tracks is the smoky, sexy "Like a Drug," which trades Ford's barbs at cultural homogenization (as in opener "I Swear") for a swaggering, slow-jam shuffle and diamond-sharp vocals that Jessica Rabbit would envy. Ford & Co. may still wear their Asheville hearts on their sleeves, but Portland has never beamed brighter for some transplants gone large. See why at this homecoming show. RYAN J. PRADO
