Rose Festival: Floater, The Parson Red Heads, The Minus 5 

When: Fri., June 8, 5 p.m. 2012
I guess Floater is headlining this show at the Rose Festival's RoZone stage, but the real news is that it's your first chance to see solo material from a member of R.E.M. since the band's breakup last year. That would be courtesy of Peter Buck, who plays bass for Scott McCaughey's the Minus 5 and has been a frequent fixture on the low-key Portland scene even as he's been a member of one of the biggest bands in the world. Buck recently gathered a crew of locals for five days of recording at Type Foundry; his debut solo album is due to come out later this year on a tiny, vinyl-only run of 2,000 on the equally tiny Mississippi Records label. Buck'll strap on the guitar and sing a few songs from the record at tonight's 6 pm set, before he and the rest of the Minus 5 dash over to Dante's to take part in the Neil Young tribute.
