(Adorable) band on the rise: Poppies play Sunnyvale tonight (01.17), Baby's on 02.01

The name of NYC's quartet Poppies is extremely appropriate, considering those flowers' sleep (and high) inducing qualities - as all rock'n'rollers should know, all opioids like morphine, heroine and a slew of painkillers derive from poppy seeds. Both sleepy and dreamy, this band's soothing, melancholic ballads feature the gentle and youthful voice of May Rio, and a tendency to find inspiration in old time pop melodies that's somewhat reminiscent of Mitski (check out streaming single Eggheads in this regard). Their music video for “Told,” which features a man in a dog costume and an old lady resenting him, give us an example of their more "hallucinogenic" side. The quartet has a string of local shows scheduled, culminating with a show at Baby's All Right on 02.01 with Baked and Soft Fangs (they'll be also playing at Sunnyvale tonight 01.17).

Girl Fest is Giving Us Life

A much needed celebration of female power, Girl Fest is back with a showcase of some of Portland's best female musicians of the moment. Hosted by the soulful Blossom, this year's installation of GF touches on a few different genres, including jazz, folk and hip hop, to me enjoyed by all ages.

Coco Columbia has been a local love we've grow to appreciate more and more, with her refreshingly modern and eclectic take on jazz. Her voice, along with her production, have become indicative of the variety of other music scenes the city provides.

Other upbeat offerings come from some of the only female rap artists in Portland's market right now, including Karma Rivera. Taking a beat and fully making it her own, Karma's rhymes give the best of relatable expression and fun quips. Building off of that, duo Neka & Kahlo mix angelic bedroom pop with hip hop that results in a trappy type R&B that we need much more of.

Courtney Noe could easily dominate the pop charts with her retro ballads and after the Fish Eye EP, we've been dying for more of Haley Heynderickx's acoustic folk.

Thankfully Girl Fest 2017 is still happening tonight at the Crystal Ballroom. It's an all ages show, including some performances from young artists involved with local youth music nonprofit My Voice Music, so bring all your loved ones out for a night of true female empowerment.

Weekend Warrior, January 13 - 15

After releasing their latest EP Five Years at the tail end of 2016, Square Peg Round Hole steps into the New Year with a show this evening at Johnny Brenda’s. An eye-and-ear-opening sonic landscape unveils itself, while the percussive-anchored trio fleshes out flourishes of futuristic accessible instrumental ambiance, pushing the perimeter without disregarding the origin. Tonight, they’ll be joined by fellow local sonic experimenters Grimace Federation and the electro-percussive bursts and blasts of Ian Chang (of Son Lux).  
 
 
Cabin fever may take hold as the winter comes into fruition. However, the resounding, wood-burning resolve of storytelling laid over fresh strings complimented by the force of folky Americana and endearing harmony, that’s what’s on tap this Saturday at Boot & Saddle, where Black Horse Motel will celebrate the arrival of their new EP Parable. The album is available via Single Batch Records. - Michael Colavita

New Deadfellow EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

An emerging, eerie resolve rings true in Love Songs for the Contemporary Listener, the debut EP from Deadfellow. Moving forward despite dreary conditions, the songs carry a lingering; whether shaded in heavy guitar ascension or softer circling patterns, the soulful ache remains. Deadfellow is set to perform solo at Coda on Monday, January 30, and will be in full-fledged band mode on Friday, February 10 at Ulana’s. (Photo by Dave Apple)

The Shivers return live in solo format on 02.18 at Music Hall of Williamsburg

The Shivers, the project of songwriter Keith Zarriello, have been playing around New York since 2001, releasing their arresting, 19 tracks debut album 'Charades' in 2004 (The Deli interviewed them back in 2010). They’re coming into 2017 with a fresh start after a brief hiatus and a lineup change that now sees Zariello playing solo, with a rotating cast of guests. A favorite of bands such as Deer Tick and celebrities like Aaron Paul and Rose McIver, the band has been consistently delivering mesmerizing and soulful songs that feel truly timeless - don't miss break out single 'Beauty.' You'll find in them the introspective thoughtfulness of Leonard Cohen and occasional departures in more experimental directions. Their latest album 'Forever Is A Word' was released in 2015 and features single 'Puppy Dog' (streaming).

On February 18, The Shivers will perform at Music Hall of Williamsburg with opening acts Max Jury, Ashni, and Ben Talmi. A portion of ticket sales from the event will go towards The Jed Foundation, a national nonprofit dedicated to protecting the emotional health of teens and young adults across America. – Will Sisskind
