The Woolen Men w/Parquet Courts; Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell

Portland scene vets the Woolen Men have come a long way since their early days as unwavering lo-fi adherents. Their latest record, last year's Temporary Monument, was a pop dork's ultimate fantasy that blended everything from nervy '77 punk and the classic Flying Nun canon, to post-punk and Wire worship. Highlight "After the Flood" ranks among the catchiest songs released by a Portland band last year.
