THIS WEEKEND IN MUSIC: Silversun! Ataris! More Pour Soi!

Posted By on Fri, Jul 30, 2010 at 1:27 PM

Instead of a lot of "meh" shows, this weekend's has a few really great ones. Behold:

Punks and Goonies fans collide tonight at Empyrean when The Ataris take the stage. Those silly punkers made an album — So Long, Astoria — a few years back that made several nods to the 1980s cult classic. They're cool in my book. They play with Small Town Nation and the Toy Garden at 6:30 pm. All-ages. $5.

It's a triple threat! It's a spendy show, but when you break it down you're really only paying $8.50 per band. DUDE. LA darlings Silversun Pickups play tonight with Against Me! and the up and coming back, the Henry Clay People. 8 pm. $24.50 - $26. All-ages. (Read our story on Silversun Pickups here and our review of Against Me!'s latest here.)

She's gonna be a big effing deal. Well, at least if she keeps at the pace she's at now. Sara Jackson-Holman (who we wrote about here) takes the Empyrean stage tomorrow night with Cave Country, Wonder Wonder and Heroshine. Sweet, vintage sounding melodies. Very nice, indeed. 7 pm. $7. All-ages.

Maybe they're staying? Pour Soi — a band we thought called it quits last year — is back on the Seaside stage tomorrow night for another reunion show. They play with proggy Portlanders, OxcarT, tomorrow night at 7 pm. $5. Gotta be 21.
