    Pearl Jam's Jeff Ament will perform with his side project, RNDM, on Sunday at the Tractor Tavern in Seattle.

Jeff Ament has one impressive resume.
The Seattle bassist was a founding member of Green River, Mother Love Bone, Temple of the Dog and, yes, Pearl Jam, the multiplatinum group that still pays most of his bills.
He's also formed a graphic design company and put out the occasional solo material.
With Pearl Jam on a brief break, the ever-active Ament decided to add another band to his resume: RNDM. That group will play an intimate show at the Tractor Tavern at 9 p.m. Sunday.
RNDM finds Ament partnering with the acclaimed indie rock songwriter Joseph Arthur. The group, which also includes drummer Richard Stuverud, cranked out its debut album, "Acts," in just four days, and saw it hit No. 16 on Billboard's Top Heatseekers chart.
Tickets are $20 at or 888-929-7849.
Most of the other acts coming to the area haven't made quite the same impact on top 40 radio as Ament, but several also share close ties to the Pacific Northwest.
For instance, the Cave Singers, a Seattle group, has won accolades as part of the city's still-burgeoning folk scene.
The group will headline the Showbox at the Market at 9 p.m. Saturday as it tours behind its fourth album, the March release "Naomi." That rootsy album has won acclaim from critics, who lauded its more upbeat aesthetic, comparing it to the work of early Wilco.
Tickets are $20 at or 888-929-7849.
Cloud Cult also is heading to Seattle for a show at the Neptune Theatre at 8 p.m. Monday.
The long-running Minnesota group -- originally a solo project of frontman Craig Minowa -- has carved out a niche for itself with its experimental alt-rock. The group is touring behind its ninth studio album, "Love."
Tickets are $17 at or 877-784-4849.
Finally, the Lonely Forest, an indie group that formed in Anacortes, will head south for a show at the Crocodile at 8 p.m. Saturday.
The group first turned heads when Jack Endino, the producer responsible for Nirvana's first album, recorded the band's debut EP.
Since then, the Lonely Forest has cultivated a loyal local, releasing three more albums. It's still touring behind its 2011 record, "Arrows," but is expected to play new material during the Seattle show.
Tickets are $16 at or 877-784-4849.
