Micky & The Motorcars, Flash Flood & The Dikes 

When: Fri., Aug. 3, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $13-15
Alt-country never caught on the way late-'90s record execs hoped it would, but that doesn't mean it went away.

Micky and the Motorcars stick to traditional subject matter—women, boozing, the open road—with a finish that's more glossy than dusty. Portland's Flash Flood and the Dikes dig a little deeper, blending country with more far-out sounds. The only thing glossy about these lads and lassies are their eyes. That is to say: Come out early for the Dikes. MARK LORE
