MUSIC—Where my Canadian tomboys at? Oh, look there they are... Tegan and Sara are back in town for the second time this fall, this time without the confetti wing-ding spectacular of headliner Katy Perry. The adorable twin-sister duo's synth-pop is infectious, fun, and admired by a fervent fanbase of rabid indie popsters. Go; paint pastel squigglies on your face; dance. CF
w/Waters, the Courtneys; Roseland, 8 NW 6th, 8 pm, $39.50, all ages

UPDATE: Tig Notaro had to postpone her show tonight due to medical issues. COMEDY—She may have blasted onto the national consciousness with a set about being diagnosed with breast cancer, but these days Tig Notaro's pretty healthy—barring a recent trip to the hospital for a ruptured cyst. As of press time, the Portland stop of her tour is still on—here's hoping for a night of wicked cyst burns. MS
Aladdin Theater, 3017 SE Milwaukie, 8 pm, $25, all ages


HUMP!—It's here! It's here! The weekend that perverts have been waiting for all year! It's the HUMP! amateur porn film fest, in which dirty birds like YOU produce five-minute filthy flicks, while the rest of us cram into Cinema 21 to laugh, shriek, and gaze upon them in awe and hilarious horror. WE! LOVE! HUMP! SO! MUCH! (Oh, we love HUMP! host Dan Savage, too—who'll be there in person!) WSH
Cinema 21, 616 NW 21st, Wed Nov 12-Sun Nov 16, various screenings, see for times and tickets, $18, 18+

MUSIC—"The Coup is here again?" you might ask. I can only tell you that I have lived in parts of the country where the West Coast's most potent mix of political conscience and teeth-shaking bass beats don't visit at all. You've got it so good, Portland. Boots Riley & Co. don't have a new album to pimp. They're here for the hell of it, which is also why you should go see them. DVH
w/Tope, Speaker Minds, & more; Hawthorne Theatre, 1507 SE César E. Chávez, 8 pm, $15-17


BOOKS—You've probably seen Megan Amram's intentionally unflattering smoosh-faced selfie on Twitter, even if you don't know who she is (a very funny writer, lately of Parks and Recreation) or how she got famous (tweets!) or the identity of her Portland-only tourmate (her mom!). Amram's Science... for Her! makes well-deserved fun of lady magazines that encourage terrible ideas like "engagement chicken" and "healthy snacking." MB
w/Megan Amram's mom; Powell's City of Books, 1005 W Burnside, 7:30 pm, FREE

MUSIC—It's almost embarrassing how well the Swedish sisters of First Aid Kit do Americana. The soaring harmonies and galloping strum on singles like "My Silver Lining" and "Cedar Lane" drew more listeners than ever to their latest, Stay Gold, and the power of their live performance may well blow back your long folk-hippie hairdo. MS
w/Samantha Crain; Roseland, 8 NW 6th, 9 pm, $22, all ages

COMEDY—Todd Barry doesn't even really need jokes, although he's got a ton of great ones. Give him a couple marks in the crowd, just five minutes of conversation, and you have a night of comedy with more laughs per pound than any hyperactive douchebag screaming into the mic. BR
w/Veronica Heath; Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, 7 pm, $20


VISUAL ART—Disjecta's eighth annual art auction is your chance to see innovative pieces by artists like Delaney Allen (just-right interrupted portraits) and Claire Ashley (puffy, humanoid, very colorful installations), and to indulge your Medici aspirations (the art-collecting kind, GET YOUR MIND OUT OF THE GUTTER). Proceeds go to Disjecta's operating budget, which means you'll be supporting future art shows, plus, free drinks! MB
w/AC Dickson; Disjecta, 8371 N Interstate, 7 pm, $25-30

SHOOZ—One of the biggest hit songs to ever come out of Portland is Nu Shooz's classic "I Can't Wait." Hmm, you look confused. Just cue it up on YouTube. We'll wait.... Yep! That's Nu Shooz. The '80s freestyle funkmeisters are playing their first hometown club shows since 1992, so head on down to one of tonight's two sets, and be ready to dance! NL
Jimmy Mak's, 221 NW 10th, 7:30 & 10 pm, $15-18


GEESE—Here's all you need to know about the Popovich Comedy Pet Theater—HOLIDAY CIRCUS!: It features fifth-generation circus performer Gregory Popovich and more than 30 rescued animals—wiener dogs! housecats! tiny mice! geese that have been trained not to be giant assholes!—doing all sorts of circus-y feats! Humanity has reached its apex, and its apex is training mice to do tricks! EH
Aladdin Theater, 3017 SE Milwaukie, 3 & 7 pm, $25-35, all ages

MUSIC—New Orleans duo Generationals came to Oregon to record their latest album with the magic-fader fingers of Richard Swift, and Alix is a glowy, bumpy, dance-pop delight with phat beats, tropical synths, and cooleyhigh harmonies. They play two shows this evening—an all-ages early gig and a 21-and-over late show. NL
w/Springtime Carnivore; Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside, 5 & 9 pm, $11-13, early show all ages


CLASSIC COMEDY—Fans of British comedy need no introduction to The Black Adder—comedian Rowan Atkinson's side-splitting, insanely smart romp through British history. The Hollywood has chosen four of the best episodes from each season (spanning from the reign of Richard III to World War I) for a Black Adder Marathon that's sure to win over newbies and history-haters alike! (Seriously, this is one of the funniest TV shows ever produced. See it!) WSH
Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy, 7 pm, $8

MUSIC—The martial arts mixmaster Flying Lotus (AKA Steven Ellison) has a gift for electronic music that spins a Rubik's Cube of different styles. His newest album, You're Dead!, is a completely different can of beans from song to song—playfully jumping from prog to IDM to jazz to rap to haunting hymns. Catch the jazz-cat chameleon tonight, in what's sure to be a trippy show of electronica, rhymes, and beats. CF
w/Thundercat; Roseland, 8 NW 6th, 9 pm, $25, all ages


FILM—Behold, the first omen of Oscar Bait Season: A Very Important Film about a Very Important Subject directed by a Very Well-Meaning Comedian. But wait! Early word on Jon Stewart's directorial debut, Rosewater—about the imprisonment of BBC journalist Maziar Bahari, played by Gael García Bernal—is that it's actually good. Maybe this Oscar Bait Season won't be that bad! EH
Various Theaters, see our review and Movie Times

MUSIC—It's been pleasant to see and hear Death from Above 1979 slowly return from the wilderness that followed their first, cultishly-beloved album a decade ago. This year's long-awaited LP, The Physical World, is a little more poppy, sure. But it's still jammed with the same turgid bass lines, clatter, and howls that define the duo's gristly sound. And when you've finished thoroughly shaking your hips tonight, you'll hope it won't be so long until you can do it all again. DCT
Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside, 9 pm, $28.50-$30.50, all ages
