If the smoke isn’t too thick, we should be able to see Ashleigh Flynn’s new all-female band the Riveters on Tuesday evening at The Ruins. “We’ve been working on a new record, which is smokin'!” Flynn recently said, but let’s hope it’s just musical smoke and not adding more to what we already have here. She also said the music is “a little more honky-tonkish” and that Kathryn Claire joins the band on fiddle. Springhouse Cellar, 13 Railroad Ave, Hood River; 541-308-0700. — Jim Drake
