POP OFF—PDX Pop Now!'s annual fundraiser, Make It Pop!, is a great way to support local all-ages music, and it's a terrific concert, this year with Kelli Schaefer, Monarques, Grandparents, Ezza Rose, and DJ Jeremy Petersen. Throw in a raffle, free hors d'oeuvres and desserts, and the announcement of this year's PDX Pop Now! compilation tracklist, this is the feel-good party of the season. NL

COMEDY—Remember back in the '90s, when MTV had a dating show? This one guy, Chris Hardwick, made fun of all the meathead contestants, like, all the time. I don't know where he's been for the past 20 years, but I guess he does stand-up now! I bet it's pretty good. BR
