Friday To-Do: Blitzen Trapper

BLITZEN TRAPPER
8:30 p.m., Revolution. $12 adv., $15 d.o.s.

This Portland, Ore., outfit has spent the better part of a decade making waves in indie-loving circles by mixing a heady, harmonic brand of folk-country with prog-y, pop sensibilities. The group was pushed into the "next big thing" batter's box after receiving near-universal praise in 2007 with "Wild Mountain Nation," an album so recklessly eclectic it nudged towards all-out schizophrenia. Since, Blitzen Trapper has followed the same anti-formula, rubbing heavy bass licks into the grooves of their Eagles records and eluding listeners' natural instincts since. The outfit is supported by long-time folkies Fruit Bats and the left-field bedroom pop of Pearly Gate Musiac.
