Caveman, Aan, Pure Bathing Culture 

When: Sun., April 22, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $10-12
The New York lads in Caveman are building a reputation as a ferocious, powerful live band, which seems a little at odds with the muted, pastel-hued jangle pop on their debut album, CoCo Beware. Still, there's no denying those melodies, which grow in sweep and magnitude the more you become familiar with them. There's something lovely at heart with Caveman, and with a singer who doubles on percussion and a guitarist who makes his own instruments, the band's sunset-swept brand of pop is irresistibly intriguing. If it's bolder and brasher in the live setting, all the better. Throw in opening sets by one of Portland's best art-rock workhorses (Aan) and one of Portland's best new bands (the beachcombing bliss-anthems of Pure Bathing Culture), and this is a win from start to finish.
