Hidden monuments

Portland, Oregon-based folk collective Balto has been called “the band everyone should have heard of, but nobody has.” All that anonymity may be on the brink of dissipation, as the group heads east with a suitcase full
of tunes from its latest EP, Monuments. The album was recorded in an old church over three days in Woodstock, New York, and frontman Daniel Sheron says they were delighted with the results, even though they “stayed awake day and night and half of us got salmonella poisoning.” No cover, 8pm. Miller’s, 109 W. Main St., Downtown Mall. 971-8511.
