Blitzen Trapper

Portland, Ore.-based Blitzen Trapper’s latest album, American Goldwing (2011), is an unabashed throwback to the band’s early influences—Bob Dylan, Gram Parsons, Joe Walsh and the Rolling Stones’ country divergence. It’s anthemic and rollicking when compared with the band’s previous five studio albums, but frontman/guitarist Eric Earley’s fine-tuned attention to storytelling is still there. And with his vivid imagination in full force, it’s worth noting that Sub Pop Records reports he has, in fact, penned a draft of a novel and some short stories. So perhaps eventually, he’ll join the ranks of his contemporaries like Josh Ritter and Willy Vlautin and publish a bound work of prose. The Parson Red Heads open. The State Room, 638 S. State, 8 p.m., $15
