Blank Pages, The Estranged 

When: Sat., Aug. 2, 8 p.m. 2014
The first Google hit for "Blank Pages band" leads to the website for an overproduced Christian pop-rock band, complete with a landing page that feels it's reasonable to auto-play music at a deafening volume. As such, it could be easy to get discouraged in your attempt to discover the music of the Berlin-based garage-rock quartet of the same name. Dig just a little deeper into those results, though, and you'll arrive at the Bandcamp page for the German punk-rock label Hardware Records, host to Blank Pages' excellent self-titled debut. The release offers 10 tracks of urgent punk rock that is completely drenched in a hyper pop sensibility that rivals the likes of the Marked Men or Sonic Avenues. Atmospheric post-punk outfit the Estranged joins Blank Pages tonight. The Portland band made an impassioned appearance at PDX Pop Now! the other week, and they released one of the year's better albums on Dirtnap back in May. CHIPP TERWILLIGER
