Need Something To Do Friday?

The Wandas
  • The Wandas

With a classic rock sound and a name straight out of a Neil Young song, The Wandas have been kicking ass on stages across the United States since 2002. They rock so hard, Guitar World Magazine named their latest album one of the best of 2011 before it was even released. The Wandas' catchy, retro-inspired music joins forces with folksy local gal Grandma Kelsey tonight at Red Room for a winning combination.

This Grandma has a passion and talent for playing harp and guitar, singing and telling stories. She has shared the stage with Eilen Jewell and Ritchie Young of Portland's Loch Lomond, along with plenty of others. But don't let her name fool you, the soulful vocals are soothing, but Grandma Kelsey is no septuagenarian.

Top it all off with Storie Grubb and the Holy Wars, a folk-rock trio with a darker poetic leaning, and local electronica act Owlright, who have coined their own genre, "blip-step," named for the kind of sound effects they use.

If you're looking for a genre-bending good time, this is the show for you. The fun begins at 9 p.m. at 1519 W. Main St. The cover is $5.
