The Parson Red Heads

Portland, in the words of Will Ferrell’s Zoolander character Mugatu, “is so hot right now!” True, the Portlandia craze has died down a bit, but Brandon Roy’s return to the Blazers and the team’s upset of the tear-stained circus that is the Miami Heat has the City of Roses keeping on their big-boy pants for the time being. So should The Parson Red Heads’ move back from Los Angeles, thanks to the high cost of California living. Now the band’s Crosby, Stills & Nash folk and Tom Petty country-rock is back in the Northwest, sure to please as much as it ever has. Residency issues aside, just to hear “Punctual as Usual” is reason enough to get out to the Tractor tonight. With The Mother Hips. BRYDEN MCGRATH
