HAPPY B-DAY, BUFFY—Ten-hut, nerds! In honor of Buffy the Vampire Slayer's 30th birthday (and the comic book release/finale of Buffy: Season 8), Dark Horse, Multnomah Country Library, and Cosmic Monkey Comics are holding a b-day party for the Buff! Expect a Q&A sesh with Scott Allie and Sierra Hahn of Dark Horse, trivia, a vampire tattoo station, "Hush" charades, and YES! Buffy cake. WSH
Central Library, US Bank Room, 801 SW 10th, 5:30-7:45 pm, FREE

PILL POPPIN'—Looking for some dance relief from the midweek grind? Look no further than Nightshift, Rotture's hand-selected evening of moody pop/darkwave/electro acts. Most notable are local boys Prescription Pills, whose temperamental style—think Starfucker on a sinful bender—and vocal shrieks of frontman Cole Browning can ignite most any dance floor. EAC
w/Shermstixx, Support Force, & more; Rotture, 315 SE 3rd, 9 pm, $5

In case you missed it, Courtney got nerd-juice all over the internet yesterday in a post investigating how old Buffy really is.
