LITTLE BLACK ON THE PRAIRIE—Black Prairie has performed only a handful of shows, none of which have been within Portland city limits. That changes tonight as the band—which features three-fifths of the Decemberists—makes its Portland debut. Their album Feast of the Hunters' Moon is a lovely collection of instrumental bluegrass, sprawling country, and tempered klezmer, all performed masterfully. EAC

GET HANDSY—Chefs and artists team up for Hands on for Haiti to benefit Mercy Corps' continuing earthquake relief. Bid on exciting culinary experiences and art, while nibbling sammies from the likes of Meat Cheese Bread and the Heathman. Mmm... delicious charity. PAC
