Ah, sweet twang. Sweet Portland twang.
Indie rock gets lots of ink over in Oregon’s biggest town, but there’s an undercurrent of folk-rockers and string-banders and more that seems to be bubbling with greater ferocity these days than ever before.
Two of these bands are making the trip over the mountains Wednesday for a show at The Horned Hand. One is Kory Quinn & The Comrades, a foot-stompin’ gang that mines the grimy gutters of Americana for its sound. This is the kind of stuff you might hear being played ’round a trash fire in a 50-gallon drum on either side of the tracks, doesn’t matter as long as there are tracks.
The other is Left Coast Country, who specialize in slightly more polished, grease-lightning bluegrass jams with a side of swingin’ fiddle. This is the kind of stuff you might hear being played ’round ... um ... Bend.
Kory Quinn, with Left Coast Country; 8 p.m. Wednesday; $5; The Horned Hand, 507 N.W. Colorado Ave., Bend; www.facebook.com/ thehornedhand.
