Here’s some of the interesting stuff people are doing in Portland this coming week:

Aan / Genders

Thursday, Mar 8 · 9:00 PM · Mississippi Studios and Bar Bar

Aan is a four piece experimental pop project exploring tone and texture through the guise of a rock outfit. Bud Wilson has been writing and recording under this moniker for over seven years, though its first proper LP was released in February of 2014 (Amor Ad Nauseum). Live, the band exhumes a catharsis that feels almost tangible, reworking and deconstructing the recorded material to form a sort of hyper version of its template. Tickets $10.

Sunday, Mar 11 · 3:00 PM · Temple Apalala

Son Lux

Monday, Mar 12 · 8:00 PM · Doug Fir Lounge

Son Lux is the grand genre-less dream of Los Angeles composer Ryan Lott brought to roiling, vivid life with the help of two New Yorkers, guitarist Rafiq Bhatia and drummer Ian Chang. Each is a writer, producer, and performer with omnivorous taste and a penchant for wild improvisation — a band whose mix of electronic pop, unusual soul, and outright experimentalism feels more inviting than ever on the project’s fifth album, Brighter Wounds. Tickets $17.
