WEDNESDAY, MAY 25

We Take Holocene #3
This is the third installment of We Take Holocene, Glenn Waco's showcase focusing on Portland's wealth of talented hip-hop artists. After collaborating on last year's "Portland Female Cypher" video, tonight rising stars Alia Zin, Blossom, Karma Rivera, and Vytell will reunite for one hell of a takeover. CIARA DOLAN
Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison, 9 pm, $8-10

Re-Run Theater
The Re-Run Theater series at the Hollywood returns with 1986: The Year in Videos—a program made up of some of the finest music videos of 1986 (or, some would say, ALL TIME). Get ready for the Beastie Boys, Bon Jovi, Pet Shop Boys, Siouxsie, Depeche Mode, and more—all of it accompanied by VHS-recorded MTV bumpers and commercials. ERIK HENRIKSEN
Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy, 7:30 pm, $7-9

THURSDAY, MAY 26

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Raz Simone
I have a special place in my heart for Macklemore. The Seattle rapper is a gay rights advocate. His songs and videos are fun as eff. Plus, he name-checks the tiny town I grew up in. Say what you will, but he's thoroughly likeable. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis play the gargantuan Memorial Coliseum tonight—time to rep your grandpa style. COURTNEY FERGUSON
Memorial Coliseum, 300 N Winning, 8 pm, $39.50-59.50, all ages

True Stories
After Talking Heads conquered the world with their brilliant art-pop and acclaimed live show, head Head David Byrne expanded his artistic palette with the True Stories film, a surreal look at small-town America featuring John Goodman and Spalding Gray. Catch it tonight on 35mm as part of Mississippi Records' Music & Film Series. NED LANNAMANN
Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy, 7:30 pm, $9

FRIDAY, MAY 27

Rose Festival Opening Night Fireworks
It's time to once again say, "Hello, Summer!" with the annual Rose Festival, which kicks off in earnest with the opening of the CityFair carnival on the waterfront tonight with FIREWORKS! [Note: This is the first Rose Festival where pot is legal. Sooooo....] FIREWORKS! WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY
Tom McCall Waterfront Park, 1020 SW Naito, 9:45 pm, CityFair admission $8, FREE everywhere else

Titus Andronicus, La Sera
The grandiose punk rock of New Jersey's Titus Andronicus bursts at the seams, with a live show that's both Springsteen spectacle and down 'n' dirty DIY. With new drummer Chris Wilson (of Ted Leo and the Pharmacists) in tow, watch Titus turn Revolution Hall into an all-ages pageant of rock 'n' roll chaos. NED LANNAMANN
Revolution Hall, 1300 SE Stark, 9 pm, $18-20, all ages

SATURDAY, MAY 28

Purple Reign: A PDX Tribute to Prince
Prince died 37 days ago; how much longer should we mourn him? Way, way longer—he was the best. Head to the Doug Fir for Purple Reign, a night honoring and celebrating the Artist with two of his movies (Under the Cherry Moon at 5 pm and Purple Rain at 7 pm), live music at 9:30 pm, and Prince karaoke with the band at 10 pm. DOUG BROWN
Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside, 5 pm, $10-15 (both movie screenings are FREE)

The Cure, The Twilight Sad
Hi Mrs. Nightshade. I know Azrael's in repose under his existential blanket of despair, but the Cure is playing tonight. Tell him I bought a carton of cloves and I have my mom's minivan, so we'll be traveling under a cloak of perpetual darkness... until we get to the Sunlight Supply Amphitheater, which, true to its name, festers under the sun's accursed rays. Don't worry, we promise not to have any fun. COURTNEY FERGUSON
Sunlight Supply Amphitheater, 17200 NE Delfel, Ridgefield, WA, 7 pm, $17-162, all ages

Savages, Head Wound City
On Savages' recently released sophomore album, Adore Life, the London post-punks explore tantalizingly dangerous love. The record rips open like a demonic butterfly rage-quitting its cocoon. Despite the incendiary quality of their arty punk, Savages' sonic fireballs are thrown with bull's-eye precision and nuanced, controlled power. CIARA DOLAN
Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell, 9 pm, $18.50-20, all ages

SUNDAY, MAY 29

It's Not Me; It's Me
Ah, dating in Portland, you say. It's so hit-or-miss, so Burning Man-focused, so much easier sometimes to be single. Delightful comedians Barbara Holm and JoAnn Schinderle GET YOU, buddy! That's why they have an entire show devoted to the travails of dating, It's Not Me; It's Me—with bonus hilarity from Shane Torres. Quit swiping and start chuckling! MEGAN BURBANK
Alberta Street Pub, 1036 NE Alberta, 9 pm, $7

Portland Thorns vs. Seattle Reign
In the last meeting with our bitter rivals, the Seattle Reign, our much beloved Portland Thorns ended the game in a draw. What does this mean? It means that the Reign can expect a monumental ASS-WHUPPIN' when they visit the cozy confines of Providence Park and suffer a humiliating defeat against the Thorns, who are having a great season thus far. Show up and bring your best screaming lungs! WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY
Providence Park, 1844 SW Morrison, 4 pm, $13.50-40, all ages

MONDAY, MAY 30

POWFest Monthly
Today's Hollywood has a few problems—but perhaps none is bigger than the fact that regardless of genre or budget, women filmmakers are profoundly underrepresented. Thankfully, POWGirls—an educational offshoot of the Portland Oregon Women's Film Festival, better known as POWFest—is working to change that, putting cameras, microphones, and editing software in the hands of young women. Tonight, check out a wide-ranging sample of what these filmmakers have made—chances are, you'll also catch a glimpse of the future of film. The event's free, but bring a few bucks all the same—all donations will support future POWGirls workshops. ERIK HENRIKSEN
Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton, 7 pm, FREE

TUESDAY, MAY 31

Tim Heidecker & His Ten Piece Band, JP Inc.
Yep, Tim Heidecker makes music. The absurdist comedian—best known for his work on Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!—created a whole album about Herman Cain's 2012 presidential bid, a 15-minute Dylan-esque slog through the Titanic tragedy, and a song about Donald Trump's pilot murdering Donald Trump (and himself). It's baffling. And funny. DIRK VANDERHART
Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, 7:30 pm, $25-28.50

Kurt Vile & the Violators
Eternally youthful, majestic-haired multi-instrumentalist Kurt Vile is half French dandy, half awkward middle school boy who's great at drawing elves. Tonight, take in Vile's amiable, moody lo-fi rock, with songs about deserts and freeways and friendship, plus an undercurrent of existential ambivalence to keep it real. It's perfect summertime driving music that won't give you a blood sugar crash. MEGAN BURBANK
Revolution Hall, 1300 SE Stark, 8 pm, FREE if you do a good deed through wavepdx.org, all ages
