MUSIC—The corrupted, malfunctioning-computer sounds of Oneohtrix Point Never make you feel like your brain is broken. But mastermind Daniel Lopatin's a fearless explorer of undiscovered digital terrain, and when he goes off the map—as he does repeatedly on the new OPN joint, Garden of Delete—he's well worth following. NED LANNAMANN
w/James Ferraro; Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside, 9 pm, $20

FILM—Hollywood's reliance on sequels, reboots, rehashes, and all that bullshit is stronger than ever—but one reboot we're actually looking forward to is Creed, in which Friday Night Lights' Michael B. Jordan plays the son of Apollo Creed... who gets a little boxing training from some old guy named Rocky? Directed by Fruitvale Station's Ryan Coogler, it looks fucking great. ERIK HENRIKSEN

RUN—Thanksgiving revelers with a plant-based diet, rejoice! Here's a family-friendly fun run where you won't be surrounded by carnivores. The Tofurky Trot is on the Springwater Corridor trail and raises money for nonprofits. There are top finisher prizes, drawings, and prizes awarded for best costume. SHELBY R. KING
Oaks Amusement Park, 7805 SE Oaks Park, 9 am start, $15-35, all ages

DANCE PARTY—You gotta shake off the most gluttonous day of the year. Yeah, I know it hurts at first, but you'll feel better later—promise! DJ Gregarious' third annual Jive Turkey boogie night is thee place to shimmy off those dinner rolls (or go early for the Early Birds' Thanksgiving buffet, and get that roll on under the same roof). MARJORIE SKINNER
The Liquor Store, 3341 SE Belmont, 7 pm, $5


COMEDY—You know him from the Everything as Fuck column that graces (and okay, occasionally tarnishes) these pages, as well as his appearances on Chelsea Lately and Portlandia, but erstwhile Portlander Ian Karmel is at his best in person, especially when he gets to perform for his hometown. Welcome home, Ian! MARJORIE SKINNER
Helium Comedy Club, 1510 SE 9th, Fri & Sat, 7:30 & 10 pm, $23-31

DANCE NIGHT—Don't know about you, but I feel like a greased pig in control-top pantyhose today. Ugh. Let's go unleash some turkey sweats on the Spare Room's amazing dance floor with this night of groovy moves—the Get Down, headed up by DJ Maxx Bass, promises more bounce than all that Jell-O salad you slurped down last night. COURTNEY FERGUSON
w/DJs Honest John, Portia; The Spare Room, 4830 NE 42nd, 9 pm, $5


BASKETBALL—The Los Angeles Lakers are lucky the Philadelphia 76ers and the New Orleans Pelicans exist, because otherwise they'd be the worst team in the league. That should make tonight's game against our Blazers unappealing, except that it's less a game, and more an excuse to heap mountains of shit on Kobe Bryant for 48 straight minutes. BOBBY ROBERTS
Moda Center, 1 Center Court, 7 pm, $40-465, all ages

MUSIC—As Portlanders, you already love Blitzen Trapper, and you know that their new album, All Across This Land, can be favorably compared to Bob Dylan's deeply underrated crooner phase. Land applies beefy guitar riffs to their pastoral, autumn-sweater-on-a-drizzly-day sound, and the result is the perfect classic rock-tinged nighttime driving music. MEGAN BURBANK
w/Barna Howard; Revolution Hall, 1300 SE Stark, 9 pm, $20-25


MUSIC—Tonight's a royally great edition of the Mercury's free Ear Candy series at Mississippi Studios, one not to be missed. The motorik rockers of Months will send you into a dizzy trance, but only after the punky funk of Bitch'n compel you to all kinds of getdown, and the dreamy lullabies of Tents warm you, whiskey-like, from the inside. NED LANNAMANN
Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, 9 pm, FREE

MUSIC—If you like your electro indie rock hoppin' and poppin', don't miss Brooklyn's Tanlines. Their music is danceable, heartfelt, smart, funny, and if you haven't checked out their amazingly awesome website (, which is a parody of Netflix, you are really missing out. So don't miss out! WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY
w/Blossom, DJ Bobby D; Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison, 8:30 pm, $15


HOLIDAY LIGHTS—Okay, fine, so you don't get to race around the speedway at 100 MPH. But the Portland International Raceway does have a very fun and detailed Winter Wonderland light show in which you creep around the track looking at lighted displays of Santa doing ski jumps, and listening to holiday tunes on the radio. It's extremely pleasant (and the closest you'll get to being Mario Andretti). WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY
Portland International Raceway, 1940 N Victory, opens Thurs Nov 26, Sun-Thurs 5-9 pm, Fri-Sat 5-11 pm, through Dec 27, $20 per car

FILM—Chances are good that the clothes you're wearing look... you know, fine. But chances are also good they were made in deplorable conditions in overseas sweatshops. Tonight, new nonprofit Fashion Collective Portland presents the documentary The True Cost—which examines how America's addiction to cheap, disposable clothes impacts human rights, the environment, and global trade. ERIK HENRIKSEN
Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy, 7 pm, $5-8


FILM—Jerry Lundegaard is in a bit of a pickle in the Coen Brothers' 1996 classic Fargo. Sure, he's not hella pregnant like near-to-bursting Police Chief Marge Gunderson. And he's not taking a dirt nap in the ol' wood chipper, like some people. But still, Jerry Lundegaard is good and fucked in this delightful and dark Minnesotan murder romp. COURTNEY FERGUSON
Laurelhurst Theater, 2735 E Burnside, 9:35pm, $4

HOLIDAY LIGHTS—It's officially been the Christmas season for five days now, and you still haven't scaled the West Hills to catch a glimpse, slack-jawed and legally stoned, at the Oregon Zoo gussied up like a Christmas whore? Get moving! ZooLights is back, and it's actually pretty great. DIRK VANDERHART
Oregon Zoo, 4001 SW Canyon, begins at 5 pm most nights through Jan 3, $4.95-14.95
