Jazzbones Tacoma - Sixth Ave. Roman Holiday, True Holland, Cadillac Radio. 9 pm. $10. 

  • As I've said for a long time, now, there is no other band in Tacoma that surpasses Roman Holiday in terms of big, national potential. The band already sounds like it has been vetted on adult contemporary radio for years. This is not to say it is a prepackaged band, but, rather, it's a completely successful accompaniment to huge stadium acts like Kings of Leon and Coldplay. Above all, Roman Holiday is the king of melodrama, experts in the act of building tension and then, in one fell swoop, releasing in gigantic hooks and choruses. The band fetishizes each triumphant rise and each melancholy fall. Being that Roman Holiday was born in the recording studio, it's sound is predictably polished and honed to near-perfection; the joy is seeing it replicate this polish live on stage. — Rev. Adam McKinney

Le Voyeur Café and Lounge Olympia - Downtown. Assassinators, Coniption Fits, Kill Shot. 9 pm. NC.

Northern Olympia - Downtown. Jeffrey Lewis & The Junkyard, Kimya Dawson, Stephen Steinbrink. All Ages. 8 pm.

  • Jeffrey Lewis and the Junkyard joins Kimya Dawson and Stephen Steinbrink for a performance at the Olympia All Ages Project venue Northern. It's a reunion, of sorts, for Lewis and Dawson. During New York's anti-folk scene in the early 200s, Lewis and Dawson crossed musical paths - often Lewis would perform and collaborate with Dawson and her Moldy Peaches project. The collaboration led to a K Records LP, The Bundles, and critical praise as an anti-folk supergroup of sorts. According to Lewis, he doesn't mind the anti-folk label. "I think it's a cool title. The fact that no one knows what it means, including me, makes it kind of mysterious and more interesting than saying that you're a singer/songwriter or that you play indie rock." After Peaches, former Evergreen State College student Dawson returned to Olympia to larger audiences - thanks to her Juno soundtrack -  and continue the musical collaboration path. Her most recent album, Thunder Thighs, features collaborations with Aesop Rock and pro-wrestler Daniel Bryan. — Timothy Grisham
