Shelter Red, Bearcubbin and Gldwng: Shelter Red, Bearcubbin', Gldwng 

When: Sat., Sept. 7, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $7
Four years ago, Portland's very own Mike Byrne was selected as longtime drummer Jimmy Chamberlin's replacement in the Smashing Pumpkins, one of the best bands of the '90s and one of the worst bands of the '00s. Byrne's local reputation as precocious drummer extraordinaire actually precedes him joining the Pumpkins. For years now, Byrne has played in the math-rock band Bearcubbin', whose latest EP, 2011's Get Your Heavies Out, sounds approximately like New Found Glory aping Fragile-era Yes. Amazingly, he still finds time to foster the project, regularly playing shows with the group around town in spite of his busy schedule. It's the perfect vehicle for an incredible drummer who doesn't always have much room to show off in his other band. MORGAN TROPER
