Siren Nation: Alela Diane, Jesse Sykes & Phil Wandscher, Antje Duvekot 

When: Fri., Nov. 9, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $12-15
This year's Siren Nation Festival—empowering women of all ages to create their own art, and highlighting the many achievements of women in the arts—is a many splendored thing. With performances across the city for five days straight, your show-going docket ought to be filled. Alela Diane's unwavering tribal folk is practically an institution. Diane spent the early part of this year scaling back her bulging live band (of which her father is a member), and instead revisited her roots as a solo performer after splitting from Rough Trade Records. Her upcoming album, likely to be released by someone early next year, is tentatively titled About Farewell, and according to Diane is "basically a public recitation of my diary." That sound you just heard is everyone in Portland sighing in joy at the same time. RYAN J. PRADO
