From The Hum: Boys Vs. Girls


The Lost Luvs

When I gave a listen to Portland’s The Good Sons’ “Stab in the Back,” I thought, Ramones. The track “Fuck it All Away” slows things down, as if a heroin-laden Jim Morrison had been added to the mix. I like this kinda stuff, especially when it’s happening in the corner of the Alibi, which is exactly where The Good Sons will be Saturday night with Humboldt’s Dead Man’s Tale. Sample The Good Sons for yourself at Usual Alibi details: Music starts around 11 p.m., cover’s $5 and if you’re under 21, you shouldn’t be there.

But meanwhile over at the Logger Bar... a night of all-girl bands awaits! You’ve got The Brendas with their all-lady Blue Lake alt country. You’ve got The Lost Luvs with their all-girl alt surf pop. And you’ve got Cliterate, the best-named group in the history of all-women Arcata punk bands. This one’s free and starts around 9 p.m., so maybe you can begin in Blue Lake and wend your way to the ’bi later on.
