AIMEE MANN

7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 1, Oregon Zoo

The lanky, sad-eyed troubadour has come a long way from her pouty, punk-haired days as the lead singer of 'Til Tuesday. Mann morphed her fleeting '80s fame into a more enduring career with the distinct stripped-down pop songs of her solo career.

BISHOP ALLEN

9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 1, Nocturnal

If Bishop Allen's debut disk, 'Charm School,' doesn't charm your pants off, maybe their infectious live energy will. The youngsters fall in the cute, nerdish camp of the indie scene with songs that range in sound from '50s rock 'n' roll to bluesy punk.
