FOLK ROCK | Blitzen Trapper 

Portland-based band Blitzen Trapper makes music with a wide variety of influences. The band's sound can range from faithful folk to twangy country to 70's Southern rock 'n' roll — however, the band itself asserts that its music has "lovingly" been referred to as being "Rocky Mountain Whoop-ass." Blitzen Trapper recently released its seventh LP, simply titled VII, presenting the same synthesis of genres and picturesque storytelling that has made the band noteworthy. Ultimately, whatever sound the band is exploring, its music is always sure to transport listeners to a backwoods adventure just waiting to happen.

Blitzen Trapper performs with the Parkington Sisters on Thursday, June 5, at The Club @ Water Street, 204 N. Water Street. 7 p.m. $15. Waterstreetmusic.com; blitzentrapper.net.
