Pure Bathing Culture is the new project of Sarah Versprille and Daniel Hindman, who made the move to Portland not too long ago—say hi if you see 'em on the street! The two play in Vetiver as well as countless other bands (their recent stint backing Jessie Baylin at the Doug Fir was especially memorable), but here they're playing their own tunes, which, as evidenced on their Bandcamp page, are lovely, dreamy, gossamer pop songs that could just as easily be morning eye-openers as seductive nighttime lullabies. (I dare you to escape the entrancing charms of "Lucky One" without hitting the repeat button.) Pure Bathing Culture's live ranks have swollen to include Pearly Gates Music's Zach Tillman; tonight they share the bill with Houndstooth, which in its short lifespan has already become one of the most reliably exciting bands in town, and the Soft Hills, a Seattle group whose album The Bird Is Coming Down to Earth has the auspicious US release date of February 14 (hey, that's today!). Oh, and tonight's show is completely free—don't worry, your valentine will have so much fun that they'll totally forgive you being a cheapskate. NED LANNAMANN
