San Diego-based pop-rock quartet the Donkeys must have an affinity for Portland. Not only are they stopping off at Mississippi Studios tonight for a show with the Moondoggies, they'll also be making a quick double-back from Canada in order to take their spot in the completely stacked Pickathon lineup for the festivities at Pendarvis Farm next weekend. Over the past decade, the Donkeys' sound has nestled into an easy-going, psychedelic country-rock vibe that's as picturesque and meandering as the Pacific Coast Highway. The group's recently released fourth album, Ride the Black Wave, lulls the listener into a sunny daydream, with kaleidoscopic arrangements that pave the way for twangy front-porch strumming and heartfelt lyrics. One would be hard-pressed to find a Pickathon ambassador that more fully embodies the festival's ambience than the Donkeys, and tonight's preview show should more than whet your appetite for the upcoming weekend.
