When: Fri., Aug. 12, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $4
Devin Clark, the singer and lead guitarist of Welcome Home Walker—alternatively known as W.H. Walker, depending on who is doing the poster art—has one of the most rock and roll vocal deliveries coming out of Portland. In the trashed garage style so revered for retro qualities and on-the-edge energy, Clark's voice is anchored in frontman charm, then goes lopsided with feral ferociousness. Often backed by sugar-sweet, doo-wop intonations, Clark manages to be both ragged and harmonious in perfect proportion. Tonight marks the release of WHW's first full-length album, Duds!, since forming in 2007, though they've by no means slouched in bringing party anthems to the people along the way, including "Suds!," one of the catchiest songs about beer/soap ever laid to tape.
