After you pound some brews over at Riverfront Park's Oktoberfest, head on down to Jones Radiator, where the Warren G. Hardings will take the stage with their amped up, string-heavy Americana. It's the stuff of drunker ho-downs — like that scene in Titanic when everyone dances like banshees. Just less Irish. The band plays with Wolves in the Woods. Shows there cost about $5, and usually kick off between 8 and 9 pm. Gotta be 21.

Also tonight:

Belltower (Pullman): Eclectic Approach, Vividal, Genevieve (All-ages)

Greyhound Park (Post Falls): Shinedown, Godsmack, Staind, Papa Roach, Adelita's Way (All-ages)

Masonic Center: Dirty Martinis for Clean Water feat. Pink Tango (21)

Ugly Bettie's: Flyng Spiders, Son Dulce, DJ Stack (21)


Northwest Event Center: OTEP, Butcher Babies, One Eyed Doll, Burnt Offerings (All-ages)

Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture (MAC): Harvest Festival feat. Franklin, Marshall McLean, Jamie Frost, Pearl Snaps (All-ages)


Maybe you've never heard of Communist Daughter — but there's a chance they're going to sound familiar. That might because the band's song "Speed of Sound" was featured on the hit TV series, Grey's Anatomy. The band has gained a fast following with their hand-clappy, banjo-heavy songs that tell dark stories with bright, beautiful melodies. They take the stage on Sunday night at Jones Radiator with horror folk juggernaut, Terrible Buttons. If indie-folk is your thing, you're gonna want to be there. 9 pm. $5. (21)


The Hop!: Cool Nutz, Chillest Illest, DubbleOO, Dice W., Frodie G & DJ Rocque, Kahgah, Johnny Five, Edge of Luni Bin, DJ Fat Boy (All-ages)
