An unexpected pleasure of Barsuk Records’ 15th-anniversary concert series last November was catching glimpses of some of the newer stars in the Seattle label’s galaxy.

Initially a Northwest-only concern, Barsuk has expanded its scope in recent years, picking up some opposite-coast talent. Brooklynites Yellow Ostrich’s set of percussive pop was among the fest’s best; they’ll return Saturday for an encore at Barboza. The show is sold out.
