Back Beat

Music news & notes from down in the Willamette valley.

The Decline of Western Civilization: Tease your hair and squeeze into skintight leather because glam metal band Faster Pussycat plays with Red Light Saints on Diablo’s last night open to the public 10:30 pm Friday, Nov. 15; $10. Goodbye Diablo’s — it’s been quite the 13 years.

 

Don’t miss: Grrrlz Rock at Oak Street Speakeasy with world funk band Maca Rey playing Ween tunes 10:30 pm Nov. 15, and the grrrlz continue for the Cozmic Pizza Music Extravaganza 4 to 11 pm Nov 16.

 

 

Strap in for the high-intensity dance beats of dubstep DJ Rusko’s Lift Me Up tour Nov. 14 at Studio 44. The England-born producer is known for his  “happy and heavy” drum and bass kicks, sure to give any dance fiend a wild night.

 

 

Redheaded garage rock act White Mystery is the brother-and-sister pair you wish you knew growing up. Like the past two White Mystery shows in Eugene, the duo kindly asks you to don a costume and join them as they rock the Paper Moon Photo Studio and Gallery 8 pm Nov. 15. Their infectiously youthful attitude, gritty guitar playing and kooky lyrics (listen to “Buttheads from Mars”) have landed them a spot on MTV’s list of Top 5 Sibling Acts. Joining them will be Portland rockers Sharks From Mars and local group The Soothsayers. The all-ages event expects “No jerks!” and, of course, “No dummies!”

The first track on the Kyle Gass Band’s new self-titled album expertly defines the group’s ethos: “Man Child.” Gass (half of theatrical rock duo Tenacious D) brings his expert guitar shredding and laugh-out-loud lyrics to Luckey’s 10 pm Nov. 21.
