COMEDY—The Bridgetown Comedy Festival is hands-down one of the greatest things on the Portland arts calendar. Buy a weekend pass and pretend you're on vacation: PBR in hand, scope out head-liners (Reggie Watts! Paul F Tompkins!), once-local favorites (Matt Braunger! Ian Karmel), and discover your new favorite comic from the lineup of hilarious people you haven't even heard of yet. AH

SOUL—For years, DJ Beyondadoubt's outstanding dance night I've Got a Hole in My Soul has been shaking asses and taking names. Sadly, Beyonda is off to Los Angeles, so tonight we bid farewell to this beloved Portland institution. For the last time, join Beyonda as she digs deep into her bottomless crate to produce the most booty-wagglin' classic soul 45s you will ever hear. WSH
