The weird and wonderful city of Portland has birthed many rock 'n' roll acts over the years such as The Decemberists, The Thermals and Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Summer Cannibals fits neatly into the mesh that is the diverse and spanning Portland music scene. The band is a frequent and welcome guest in the City of Trees. Summer Cannibals' music is no frills, no-BS and a whole lot of fun to listen to. It is, simply put, is just rock'n'roll. The band is touring on its most recent release, Cant Tell Me No, which dropped in June of this year. Local punks Empty Suits will join the Portlanders. Empty Suits is a call-back to punk rock's simpler days, a three-piece outfit with short, punchy and high-energy tracks. The trio is a perfect primer for a night of in-your-face tunes.
With Empty Suits. $10-12. The Neurolux, 111 N. 11th St., Boise, neurolux.com.
