Blouse opening for Dum Dum Girls at the Biltmore Cabaret Friday night.

The Portland trio, fronted by Charlie Hinton, is on tour for their latest album, Imperium.

Blouse also includes guitarist/producer Jacob Portrait and bassist Patrick Adams. Both have Pacific Northwest alt-rock roots. Hilton is originally from Southern California. A press release describers the band’s sound as a dichotomy of these influences and Hinton’s “Cohen/Patti/Nico singer/songwriter nature… These are delicate songs from the perspective of a valley girl who grew up with gurus and ashrams played by indie lifers on a steady diet of NEU! It makes it all the more understandable to have showers of acoustic guitars and (real, not synthesized) cellos interrupted by fuzz guitar.”
