Band of Horses and Juanita Family, Friday, Neurolux 

On Friday, The Juanita Family will grace the Neurolux stage. Does the name sound vaguely familiar? If you enjoy melody-infused noise-rock then it should. The Juanita Family are Lana Rebel (such a great rock-star name) and Johnny Schier--from the band Last of the Juanitas--along with Ben Wildenhaus, Dylan Reilly and James Curley.

Portlanders Last of the Juanitas made a name for themselves with their heavy rock/metal sound. Rebel hit the bass guitar as if her life depended on it, and the consensus around BW is that some of the Last of the Juanitas drum lines are some of the best. But, apparently, while Rebel had metal on her mind, she had a little Hank in her heart.

Rebel has taken all the energy she put into playing thundering bass chords into writing down-home, country songs that would make Loretta Lynn proud. The Juanita Family was formed in 1999 and, buoyed by Rebel's plaintive voice and simple melodies, have been going strong ever since. The music is comfortable and welcoming and it's not much of a stretch to imagine the Juanita Family gathered around on a porch on a lazy summer day, picking and strumming their songs. If discordant, psychedelic-sounding music isn't your thing, but homey, sweet, country music is, you don't want to miss the Juanita Family.

Sidebar: Band of Horses is also playing that night, so when you get to Neurolux settle in and ready yourself for a night of thoughtful, enjoyable music, all for only three bucks.
