Portland’s Summer Cannibals play tonight at fabulous O’Leaver’s.

Looks like another O’Leaver’s weekend…

Tonight’s main event takes place at O’Leaver’s with traveling band Summer Cannibals. The Portland four-piece plays an infectious style of indie rock which sounds influenced by acts like Sleater-Kinney or Girl in a Coma. The band’s sophomore album, Show Us Your Mind, was released earlier this year on New Moss Records and is pretty cool. Check out a track below. Also on the bill is one of my favorite local acts, Miniature Horse, and headliner Low Long Signal. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Also tonight, Minneapolis indie band On an On headlines at Reverb Lounge. But among the openers is Eliot Sumner, the daughter of Sting and actress Trudie Styler. Listening to her in the video below, her voice sounds lower than her father’s voice. Multi-instrumentalist Dosh also is on the bill. $12, 9 p.m.

Local legend Dereck Higgins and Carol Rogers are doing a set tonight over at Carver Bank, 2416 Lake St. The performance is at 8 p.m. and is free.

And Tara Vaughan headlines at Slowdown Jr. tonight with The Derby Birds and The Hottman Sisters. $7, 9 p.m.

Tomorrow night (Saturday) See Through Dresses returns to O’Leaver’s. They’ve been on the road with the likes of Cymbals Eat Guitars and The Good Life. The band recently announced it has another EP coming out this fall on Tiny Engines. Maybe we’ll get a sneak peek? Opening the show is Sidewalkers. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Also tomorrow night, Relax, It’s Science headlines at Slowdown Jr. with Lineman’s Rodeo and Laika the Space Bitch. It starts at 9 and is FREE.

That’s all I got. If I missed your show, put it in the comments section. Have a great weekend.
