Friday, June 29

Gift of Gab + The Turntable Enabler

Cloud & Kelly’s Public House, 126 SW 1st St., Corvallis. 10 p.m. $15.

We’re so lucky here in Corvallis to not only have a great local music scene, but pull in acts like Gift of Gab. If you’re not familiar with the Blackalicious rapper, check out http://officialgiftofgab.com/. He’ll be all hands on deck with special guest Vursatyl of PDX’s very own Lifesavas. What could be better? The legendary Turntable Enabler opening up. Hiphop at its finest!

The Regrettis

Bombs Away Café, 2527 NW Monroe Ave., Corvallis. 10 p.m. $5.

A rock show at Bombs? That’s a no brainer. Seriously, I wonder if they should invest in an EZ Pass or something for payment? But the question remains… why go to this one in particular? Because The Regrettis is made up of folks from (or formerly from) Burnheimer Meat co., Symbiotic Quintet, That Coyote, Supertankers Ply the Seas, and Slow Burn, and  the Shady Bunch. That’s what we call a super group!

Saturday, June 30

Vintage Circus: A Student Showcase

Majestic Theatre, 115 SW 2nd St., Corvallis. 7:30 p.m. $10-12.

What do you get when you mix “a sassy monkey, a lonely stilt walker, shocking feats of strength and flexibility, live music, acrobatics, and high-flying performances on the silks, lyra, and trapeze?” The answer: a nostalgic wonderland, complete with intermission photo booth and an Instagram contest. Get a ton of likes? You get aerial lessons! Grab tickets here: https://app.arts-people.com/index.php?show=87023 

Beer:30, Featuring Back Again

Bombs Away Café, 2527 NW Monroe Ave., Corvallis. 8 p.m. $5.

We truly wish it were beer:30 all the time. Enjoy some brews and rock tunes courtesy of Back Again!

Phase IV and Bitz ‘n’ Bitz

Cloud & Kelly’s Public House, 126 SW 1st St., Corvallis. 10 p.m. $5.

Corvallis is known for its noise scene, and you’d do well to get out and see what’s going on. Phase IV, Bitz ‘n’ Bitz, Enorde, and Charniak (PDX) are on board to tantalize your ear and brain bits. The event will be hosted by Kurtis Copenhagen of the “Kurtis Copenhagen’s Monthly Sampler,”
