Scott Lucas & the Married Men, Mission Spotlight 

When: Sat., June 23, 10 p.m. 2012
Price: $10
Everything That Floats, the debut EP from Portland's Mission Spotlight, finds that happy middle ground between high, lonely twang and boot-scuffled barroom rock. Ryan Lynn's pedal steel draws clean, sky-high lines above the band's chewy bottom end, and Kurt Foster's matter-of-fact vocal delivery imbues each fuzzy ballad with easygoing honesty. These are tales told over the clack of a pool table and illuminated by beer-light, a steadier, less impressionistic—but no less heartfelt—cousin to Richmond Fontaine's literary version of Pacific Northwest country (there's even a track called "Winnemucca"). To celebrate Everything That Float's release, Mission Spotlight plays an afternoon in-store at Music Millennium as well as tonight's set at Bunk Bar. NED LANNAMANN
