Speedy Ortiz, The Good Life, Tancred

This event is in the past
Tue., May 31, 9 p.m. 2016
Doug Fir Lounge Buckman (Portland)
$15 - $17
Despite repeated critical acclaim from the likes of Noisey, Pitchfork, and Rolling Stone, Speedy Ortiz still manages to feel like one of the current indie-rock landscape's best-kept secrets. Their deliberate, woozy, heart-on-sleeve songs make the political feel personal and the personal feel, well, extra personal. With their most recent full-length, Foil Deer, and forthcoming EP, Foiled Again, frontwoman Sadie Dupuis' lyrics have become even more scathing and smart, touching on the navigation of self-doubt and taking no shit from your would-be aggressors. The band excels at nodding to the '90s without stepping on toes as they find their footing somewhere between grunge sensibilities and off-kilter antihero power anthems. Their visit to the Doug Fir will likely be one of those shows you'll regret not checking out. Save yourself the trouble. JENNA FLETCHER
