BOOKS—Portland's Lidia Yuknavitch chews up traditional literary forms and spits 'em out, which is a gross way of describing a beautiful thing, most recently on display in Yuknavitch's genre-fucking sort-of-novel (and big publishing house debut), The Small Backs of Children. Tonight, witness her literary brilliance up close, alongside excellent essayist Liz Prato. MEGAN BURBANK
Broadway Books, 1714 NE Broadway, 7 pm, FREE

COMEDY—Last spring, a slew of Portland stand-ups crammed into Jackpot! Recording Studio to make a comedy album of their most sparkling material. Tonight, the original gang's gathering for the official release of the PDX Comedy Mixtape, with IRL sets from Curtis Cook, Barbara Holm, Alex Falcone, Veronica Heath, and more. MEGAN BURBANK
Helium Comedy Club, 1510 SE 9th, 8 pm, $5-13


MUSIC—The hip-hop of Turquoise Jeep may have become famous on the internet thanks to hilarious songs like "Lemme Smang It," "Mama Bird," and "Treat Me Like a Pirate," but it should never be forgotten that this gang of comic geniuses knows how to lay down the wickedest of beats, topped with smart, incisive lyrics. Do not underestimate. WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY
w/Rasheed Jamal, Neka & Kahlo; Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, 9 pm, $15-18

COMEDY—Bid farewell to another one of our great comedians. The latest turncoat is 2014's Portland's Funniest Person Steven Wilber, who's off to drier pastures in Los Angeles, where his laugh-making will be appreciated by even more folks. Say good-bye at this show starring the man himself and his friends Sean Jordan, Amy Miller, host Bri Pruett, and more. COURTNEY FERGUSON
Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy, 9:45 pm, $10


OKTOBERFEST—The good folks at Oaks Park asked themselves, "How can we possibly make our amusement park any better (besides giving Erik a lifetime pass so he can ride the Scrambler and Go Karts)?" With their Oktoberfest, that's how. It's crammed full of German food, wiener dog races (!), live polka and accordion music, and Paulaner beer for your mouth-hole. This is what heaven looks like. ERIK HENRIKSEN
Oaks Park, 7805 SE Oak Park, Fri 3 pm-midnight, Sat 11 am-midnight, Sun 11 am-7 pm, $2-5

MUSIC—Look, I miss Stereolab too, but there's no reason to get all torn up over it. Singer Laetitia Sadier is still putting out dreamy Frenchy pop with her solo albums, like last year's Something Shines. It's the stuff of airy daydreams, walks along cobblestone alleys, and piping hot mugs of café au lait. Go float away to her breathy tapestries. COURTNEY FERGUSON
w/Deradoorian; Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside, 9 pm, $12-14


COMEDY—V to Shining V is a national movement to promote awareness of the many political threats to women in this country, with parties and shows being thrown to bring this up in fun way. Portland's is a baller night of comedy performances from Whitney Streed, Andie Main, and more, hosted by Bri Pruett! MARJORIE SKINNER
Curious Comedy Theater, 5225 NE MLK, 9:30 pm, FREE

MUSIC—Slither into those skinny jeans for Star Bar's big blowout fifth anniversary show, because you and many, many of your closest friends are going to pack the joint to the rafters. Rock out at a free show with doomers Witch Mountain, and for the love of Satan, don't forget your earplugs. This shit is going to get epic on your eardrums. COURTNEY FERGUSON
w/Serpent's Caul, Sleeping Beauties; Star Bar, 639 SE Morrison, 8 pm, FREE


BIKES—Don't miss the last Sunday Parkways of the season, now with twice as much Tilikum Crossing! The car-less seven-mile route explores the Sellwood area and crosses the newly opened Bridge of the People. Riders and walkers will cross the bridge and hit up Westmoreland and Sellwood Parks before ending at the Brooklyn School Park for music and snacks. SHELBY R. KING
Begins at OMSI, 1945 SE Water, 11 am-4 pm, FREE, all ages, see for route

COMEDY—As the season six winner of RuPaul's Drag Race, the talented and funny Bianca Del Rio is one of the most beloved drag performers around. Tonight she performs her brand of racy, raw comedy, which is intended to insult the fuck out of you. I can't issue that warning strongly enough—though with Bianca, peeing your pants with laughter is always a possibility, too. WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY
Newmark Theater, 1111 SW Broadway, 8 pm, $37.25-79.50, all ages


MUSIC—Shapeshifting songwriter Chelsea Wolfe takes bits and pieces from the dark (musical) arts: a bit of heavy metal here, a shard of industrial there, a knife-cold whistle of a forgotten folk song to top it off. This means that her music is spooky and tense, filled with a beauty and weight that makes her one of the most fascinating musicians around. NED LANNAMANN
w/Wovenhand; Hawthorne Theatre, 1507 SE César E. Chávez, 8 pm, $15-18

MUSIC—The cartoonishly vivid art-pop of Mew is filled with bright colors, cuddly melodies, and prog-rock complexity, and somehow the Danish band makes it all work wonderfully. They're joined by the Dodos, who've become one of the most consistent duos around, with tightly tangled guitar-and-drum workouts. NED LANNAMANN
Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell, 8:30 pm, $18-20, all ages


MUSIC—This month, the Mercury-sponsored Ear Candy catches you slipping. You had no idea Portland had country—good, honest, a little drunken country—tucked in between the punk bands and the indie bands it shows off on a weekly basis. You're slipping! Tonight's three-band showcase, headlined by local softies Mission Spotlight, will make that clear. DIRK VANDERHART
w/Roselit Bone, Ghost to Falco; Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, 9 pm, FREE

FILM—You can mark the exact second at which a cinematic legend is born in Videodrome, just after a giant hole appears in James Woods' tummy, and director David Cronenberg has him shove a videotape into it. This sweaty, paranoid nightmare cemented the term "Cronenbergian" in the lexicon, and with good reason. BOBBY ROBERTS
Academy Theater, 7818 SE Stark, 9pm, $4
