For years Caleb Klauder has been a staple in the Pacific Northwest country scene, performing with folk-rock septet Calobo and Americana quartet Foghorn Stringband. That experience is evident in his latest project, the Caleb Klauder Country Band. The group’s most recent release, Just a Little, is only three songs, but that’s more than enough time for the sextet to show just how well it understands classic country. Klauder and crew address love and a fellow down on his luck with such authentic spirit, they could get a packed bar on its feet in no time. Klauder, an Orcas Island native who now calls Portland home, is the real deal. With Petunia and the Vipers. The Royal Room, 5000 Rainier Ave. S., 906-9920, 8 p.m. $12 adv./$15 DOS. All ages until 10 p.m. ACP

Julian Casablancas & The Voidz has taken the saying “Go big or go home” to heart. First of all, the sextet, fronted by the Strokes’ Casablancas, released the 11-minute “Human Sadness” as the lead single from its debut album, Tyranny. The song finds Casablancas alternating between an affected, soulful croon and an art-rock howl over layers of distorted riffs and synthesizer. Second, the band released a limited-edition lighter sleeve that contained the album on a built-in USB drive. How cool is that? (FYI, opener Mac DeMarco is playing a headlining set of his own at Chop Suey after this show.) Also with Connan Mockasin. The Showbox, 1426 First Ave., 628-3151, 9 p.m. $25 adv./$30 DOS. All ages.

After fronting folk-rock quintet Fruit Bats, touring with the Shins and Califone, and collaborating with Vetiver’s Andy Cabic, Eric D. Johnson is taking the solo route with his latest project, EDJ. His self-titled debut finds the singer/multi-instrumentalist more musically melancholic than fans may be used to hearing as he sings about leaving Los Angeles, regret, love, and perseverance. But Johnson’s familiar croon is still present. A few instrumental tracks add to the album’s cinematic feel—something Johnson, also a film composer, understands well. With Grant Olsen, Tom Eddy. Sunset Tavern. 8 p.m. $10. 21 and over. ACP
