Toyboat Toyboat Toyboat have been a formidable staple of Portland's experimental rock scene for some time now. Boasting the less-than-usual configuration of bass, drums, trumpet, and keyboards, the group toe the barely existent line between all-out prog depravity and geometric danceability, best highlighted on the group's latest release, 2013's Ample Fire EP. The result is phenomenally dense pop music comparable to Adrian Belew or Zappa at his least masturbatory—it's undeniably palatable, but perhaps most rewarding for the closet prog dorks among us (hear, hear!). Tonight the group headlines an all-ages bill at the newish instrument store Mothership Music. MORGAN TROPER
