Miss Massive Snowflake from Portland play quirky rock music. The full-length album, "Like a Book," finds the band emulating the likes of Talking Heads and The Flaming Lips.

The band — which includes guitarist and vocalist Shane de Leon, bassist Jeanne Kennedy Crosby and drummer Andy Brown — layers jazz sounds over straightforward pop-rock songs while de Leon sings odd and goofy lyrics. The band embodies the weird vibe that its hometown prides itself in.

Miss Massive Snowflake plays at 9 p.m. Saturday, March 8, at the Caldera Tap House, 31 Water St., Ashland. There is a $5 cover.
