Dirty Beaches, The Reservations, Tunnels, DJ Yeti 

When: Sun., April 24, 8:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $8
The Reservations are steeped in a hot-brewed concoction of swirling '60s Rhodes, dirty vintage R&B riffing, and swinging go-go rhythms that can make blood boil and feet burn. Over the past year, the Portland band (featuring Mattress' Rex Marshall and former Of Montreal bassist Matt Dawson) has been fiendishly winning the hearts of many, and have been described as Booker T. and the Black Sabbaths, which isn't as far-fetched as it would seem. The band's ghoulish vibes lurk in the shadows of dim alleyways and dank staircases that lead to a molten-hot underground dance party, where black-lace-wearing goths mingle with men in suits, and curvy hips sway in bright, floral vintage dresses. The nascent brilliance of the band's live performance makes the release of their Gnar Tapes full-length (due this spring) even more anticipated. TRAVIS RITTER
