THE BI-MARKS, TIT PIG, DOOM PATROL, DJ KEN DIRTNAP

(The Know, 2026 NE Alberta) The frenzied, filthy, insane shows of Seattle's provocatively named Tit Pig are quickly becoming the stuff of legend. Tonight the hardcore band—named after a gay porn star—takes over the Know on a bill put together by Green Noise Records, and you're probably not gonna come out of it the same. NED LANNAMANN

LINDSAY CLARK, EZZA ROSE, DUOVER

(Alberta Rose Theatre, 3000 NE Alberta) Originally hailing from the tiny gold rush town of Nevada City, California—a place that has now cultivated infamy for its preternatural musical talent—Lindsay Clark has made a tidy home in Portland for the past few years. Since arriving, she has warmed the walls of venues the town over with her meditative folk songs, rooted in the ever-shifting beauty of nature and emotions. Clark recently finished her second release, Home of the Brave, with Sean Ogilvie (MusÉe MÉcanique/Laura Gibson), and in its clean sparsity, it quickly becomes an autumn morning staple—a soundtrack for watching chimney smoke cut through the crisp air. "Prayers Upon the Mountain" winds through seven peaceful minutes of finger-picking, with Clark's placid voice layered in impeccable harmonies, and as she falls on the last line—"I am a palette of hope and hoping/I don't know how to not be hopeful"—the Circadian rhythms don't seem so listless after all.
