• Mesmerizing. That’s the word for the sound of Po’ Girl . The Canadian quartet makes hauntingly gauzy indie-folk that’s anchored by the show-stopping voices (and harmonies) of Allison Russell and Awna Teixeira. Imagine the house jazz band for some dusky bar that exists only in your groggy, post-nap mind, and you have the idea. Po’ Girl will play at 7 p.m. Thursday at Angeline’s Bakery (121 W. Main St., Sisters). Cover is $10.
• The local humanitarian group Rise Up is holding an end-of-summer show at its warehouse (1560 N.E. First St., Bend) on Tuesday night, headlined by two stylish indie-pop bands, The Honey Trees and Wesley Jensen & The Wildcats . Young locals The Autonomics and The Snag will open. Google all these bands; they’re pretty cool, and this sounds like a fun night. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., and cover is $5.
• Bay Area hip-hoppers The Pack’s potential seemed limitless a few years ago when they hit big with the pulsing, underwater-funk beat that powered “Vans.” But the crew failed to capitalize on its debut album, which never caught fire. Now, the group is back to trying to make a name for itself by invoking others (Kimbo Slice, the iPhone) that are already well-known.
The Pack will headline a show at the Domino Room (51 N.W. Greenwood Ave., Bend) on Saturday night, with openers Top Shelf, JB Envy and Benzo, plus a host of DJs. Doors open at 8 p.m. and tickets cost $15, available at B.I.G.S. (541-385-5222), Showcase Hats and Apparel (541-647-2246) and Ranch Records (541-389-6116), or online at www .inticketing.com.
