Identical twins and multi-instrumentalists Katelyn and Laurie Shook front Portland's indie pop band The Shook Twins. Banjo, electric guitar, and hushed telephonic vocals collide with gentle ambient pops and subtle harmonies to create a very lovely sound. This is roots music with modern songwriting and an emphasis on textures and harmonic innovation. Catch them at Humbrews at 9 p.m. ($15).
Or perhaps you prefer your music to drop the instruments and turn up the bass. The Jam has you covered with their ongoing weekly showcase of all things deep and electronic, Whomp Wednesdays. This week, get whomped by artists Mike iLL, SuDs and Snuffy from 9:30 p.m. to closing time ($TK).
