Hopeless Jack & The Handsome Devil, The Mayfields, Silver Treason, 

When: Sat., Feb. 8, 9 p.m. 2014
Price: $5
“Hopeless” Jack Beisel’s rich, buttery baritone is the kind of voice that sticks with you. At times his vocals are smooth as fine bourbon; other times he conjures the cracked croon of a desperate bluesman. Put that voice over wailing guitar and Pete Thomas on drums and you’ve got Hopeless Jack & the Handsome Devil. No matter how much the duo wants to talk about how they’re rock ‘n’ rollers, their music really is blues — bona fide, straight-from-the-gut howlin’ blues. As the Portland act proved in its 2013 release, Don’t Waste Your Time No Money Here, there’s nothing quiet about them.
