Sallie forth!

Published July 18. 2013 4:00AM

Prediction: there will some day be a war between Portland, Oregon, and Brooklyn as to which community is cooler.

Warning: a volley of incoming greatness draws nigh from the Pacific Northwest! On Friday in the Oasis Pub, Portland's Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside - whose fusion of Tom Waits and Ella Fitzgerald is raw and infectious on their new "Savage Beast" album - will perform. Pay close attention: this band is getting massive hype internationally from many trusted sources. Catch them in an intimate spot while you can.

Our own Daphne Lee Martin, working on a new album called "Frost" for a fall release, is special guest.

- RICK KOSTER

Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside, 9 p.m. Friday, Oasis Pub, 16 Bank St., New London; $10; (860) 447-3929.
