Right before I started writing this, I finished reading yet another article about how rock ’n’ roll is dead in the age of pop-star ubiquity, hip-hop’s chart dominance, and electro-everything. And if your perspective stops at Billboard’s rock charts, it’s true—rock ’n’ roll is looking pretty sickly. But every single week, a gaggle of good underground bands tour through Portland, and tonight the Analog welcomes three of them: Citizen, Sorority Noise, and Great Grandpa, who all swim in indie-rock/emo/post-hardcore/neo-grunge waters. Citizen, from America’s Rust Belt, brings glam and screamo to the mix. Connecticut's Sorority Noise is sadder, slightly mellower, and occasionally bouncy. And Seattle’s Great Grandpa live on chunky, buzzy riffs and pop melodies. All of them are good! But if you can only listen to one song from the group, make it Great Grandpa’s “Teen Challenge,” possessor of a perfectly sweet ’n’ sour chorus. BEN SALMON
