New York Night Train's Soul Clap and Dance Off, w/ DJ Jonathan Toubin
Legendary DJ Jonathan Toubin returns to Portland with his New York Night Train dance party, playing irresistibly danceable classic soul—and there’s the infamous Dance Off competition, featuring an all-star, all-local panel of judges. Toubin was in a freak accident in Portland in 2011 when a cab crashed into his room at the Jupiter Hotel, but he doesn’t hold it against us, so let’s make sure we all get out and show him the love.

Siren and the Sea, Fake Fireplace, Mujahedeen
On their brand-new debut LP Borrowed Problems, Fake Fireplace employs the sort of understated pop that fans of early 2000s indie will find comforting. Songwriter Neal Wright’s hypnotic compositions follow jagged lines, though they rarely avoid the opportunity to allow a song to unfold into satisfying crescendos, as heard most emphatically on the blooming anthem “School Spirit.” It’s a far cry from the trippy electronic menageries of Wright’s other project, Wave Collector, but flanked by drummer Will Hattman (Down Gown, Months) and keyboardist Ayal Alves (Kelli Schaefer, Siren and the Sea), Fake Fireplace operates in no less engaging terrain. On songs like “Knife to Your Back,” the Portland band’s gloomy outlook is manifested by ethereal keys, primeval percussive work, and enchanting fingerpicking. Throughout Borrowed Problems (which is being released tonight), Fake Fireplace’s tendency toward melodic experimentation is critical to how great the record sounds. RYAN J. PRADO

Spend your Sunday afternoon soaking up rays in the parking lot behind the Church bar, sipping on ice-cold drinks and listening to your favorite jams live.

Planet Damn, Supercrush, Big Bite, Born Upset
Mark Palm is one of the West Coast’s most versatile—and consistent—songwriters. As a guitarist in the band Devotion, Palm channels classicist proto-metal, while his songs in the San Francisco-based group Modern Charms recall ’90s shoegaze. With his most recent project, Supercrush, Palm applies his Midas Touch to pining, painfully tuneful power-pop. Supercrush has been a shameless singles band from the very beginning, which makes sense, given that this genre doesn’t typically lend itself too well to the LP format. Since 2013, Supercrush has released a quartet of excellent 7-inches, the latest of which was released this past April. But the best of the bunch is still 2015’s “I Don’t Want to Be Sad Anymore”—a sugary blast of technicolored bliss that, like all the best power-pop songs, belies a distinctly depressing set of lyrics.

KP, Layperson, Drunken Palms, No Mutuals
Under the Black Belt Eagle Scout moniker, Katherine Paul (AKA KP) has mastered the art of delivering a searing-yet-tender blend of post-rock in both the live setting, and on her excellent 2017 album, Mother of My Children. Tonight, Paul steps out for a rare solo performance, and with proceeds going to benefit an array of great organizations, including Bikes for the World and Bikes Not Bombs, catching this stripped-down set should be at the top of your weekend to-do list.

Babehoven, 90s Television, Joypress
As you may or may not know, Good Cheer Records is one of the best labels in Portland, at least if you’re into indie pop and rock. They’ve put out some of the city’s best albums in recent years, thanks to a strong roster of artists that includes Turtlenecked, Little Star, Floating Room, and Cool American. Now you can add another name to that list: Babehoven, a local trio made up of singer/songwriter/guitarist Maya Bon, bassist Skyler Pia, and drummer Elias Williamson. The only evidence of their music-making online currently is a five-song EP called Sleep, which proves Babehoven is particularly skilled at gentle, tunefully sad lo-fi pop songs. And there’s more where that come from—Good Cheer recently announced they’ll be releasing more Babehoven music later this year. BEN SALMON
