Viva Voce, Parson Red Heads 

When: Fri., Sept. 30, 9:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $8-10

"Husband-wife indie-folk-pop from Portland, Oregon" might seem like a set of parameters too narrow for building a double bill, but Viva Voce and the Parson Red Heads both qualify. Still, there are some differences, too. Kevin and Anita Robinson front Viva Voce and lean more toward darker moods on their half-dozen records, including this summer's The Future Will Destroy You. Evan and Brette Marie Way play guitar and drums, respectively, for the Parsons, with lead guitarist Sam Fowles sharing in the singing and songwriting. Their new disc, Yearling, is full of bright, brilliant melodies and was recorded primarily in North Carolina with Chris Stamey and Mitch Easter. —Peter Blackstock
