Drunken Prayer, Flesh Wounds, Appalucia 

When: Sat., May 12, 10 p.m. 2012
Price: $5

Drunken Prayer enjoys dual citizenship in Portlandia and Americana, though the latter's more of a summer home, given the band's wide-ranging predilections. Soul, rag, blues, folk and gospel all move through these tunes, while ringmaster Morgan Christopher Greer reveals himself to be the illegitimate offspring of Tom Waits and Levon Helm. His wheedling delivery borrows Waits' ambling grit while echoing The Band's skillful blend of roots idioms and beguiling narrative. Five years after Drunken Prayer's self-titled debut, they've returned with Into the Missionfield, an energetic, assured effort highlighted by the funky take on the traditional "Ain't No Grave" and the gentle Laurel Canyon folk-pop of "Brazil." —Chris Parker
