Live Bands

Summer Cannibals (Portland), Peru Resh, Itchy Kitty

When: Tue., May 16, 8 p.m. 2017

“I’m not the one you can call if you want to go home!” announces Jessica Boudreaux, Summer Cannibals’ singer/guitarist, on the band’s incendiary 2016 album Full of It. That’s because she and her bandmates in the Portland quartet are too busy touring like maniacs, melting faces coast to coast with supercharged tunes full of killer guitar hooks and joyful rock attitude. Rarely do the songs on Full of It or its two stellar predecessors eclipse the three-minute mark, and that’s a good thing at their shows: A pause to catch your breath is welcome among the chugging deluge of poppy punk that makes Summer Cannibals an incredible live band, like fellow Northwest rockers Sleater-Kinney or the Thermals.
