My, What a Busy Week! 

THURSDAY FEB 1

ORGANIZE--If Police Chief Kroeker steps outside tonight and takes a photograph of his own shadow, you can count on police surveillance ending in another six weeks. Otherwise, it's time to come check out Citizens Against Police Spying who are trying to rid the city from the newly organized Joint Terrorism Task Force. PB

Augustana Lutheran Church,NE 14th and Knott, 6 pm, free

MUSIC--God knows I hate noodlers; that masturbatory brand of musicians who play endless "jams" with no intention of ever settling down with a melody. Naturally there are exceptions, and my number one exception is Laurel Canyon! They may noodle around a bit, but thanks to the soothing combo of guitar, violins, bass, and drums that can leap up like a sun flare at any moment, Laurel Canyon knows exactly where they're taking you.

FRIDAY FEB 2

HOO HAW--The root-tootin', schwag-tokin' Supersuckers made a country album called Must've Been High, and now they're bringing us The Supersuckers Country Hoo Haw. It's all pot-stenched Roy Rogers tunes about liquor and the hard life, and it's funny as shit. JS

Berbati's Pan, 231 SW Ankeny, 224-TIXX, 9 pm, $8

THEATER--Hey, your kids are just as bored as you are of reading Cinderella and hearing those dumb stories about the Berenstein Bears cleaning their rooms. It's time they grow up and learn about fuckdogs! No, um, just kidding. Theatre Vertigo presents Poona the Fuckdog. This brilliant little play is all about social satire through fairy tales, appreciable by adults of all ages. KD

Theatre Vertigo at theRussell Street Theatre,116 N Russell, 306-0870,Thurs-Sat 8 pm, $12


SATURDAY FEB 3

MUSIC--Living Legends has been together for six years now, playing underground shows all over the West Coast and internationally. They're incredible--scratching sweet, chiming notes with almost frenetic rapping AND they're committed to always being independent of giant labels! KD

Pine Street Theatre, 215 SE 9th Ave, 224-TIXX, 9 pm, $12

MUSIC--The gorgeous, lunar music of the Black Heart Procession is like having your heart torn from your chest during a dank, gothic cabaret--dramatic, gut-wrenching, and candle-lit. JS

Berbati's Pan, 231 SW Ankeny, 224-TIXX, 9 pm, $8


SUNDAY FEB 4

FILM--Bill Daniels has made a career out of documenting photos of subcultures, including life on the rails and underground street culture. Texas Skate Punk Scrapbook, a collection of found footage and Daniels' own film shorts, documenting '60s -'80s hardcore punkers and skaters. One night only! KD

Disjecta, 116 NE Russell, 493-7353, 8 pm


MONDAY FEB 5

METAL--Holy Christ! I thought Blue Cheer'sVincebus Eruptum (original issue vinyl) was a total mindfuck. But Nebula is even riffier... and may I venture to sayalmost as psychedelic as Dick, Leigh & Co. If their un-ironic (?) psych-metal was any tougher, you'd have yourself a leather sandwich. JS

Pine Street Theatre,219 SE 9th Ave, 224-TIXX, 8:30 pm, $8


TUESDAY FEB 6

ART--Really, size isn't everything. The world's largest ball of twine--40 feet in circumference and growing--in Cawker City, Kansas has nothing on Gilles Foisy's new works: sexy and, dare I say, seductive, sculptures made from, yes, twine! PB

Butters Gallery, 520 NW Davis, 248-9390, Tues-Fri 10 am-5:30 pm, free


WEDNESDAY FEB 7

BASKETBALL--Some of the hottest basketball in town these days is not at the Rose Garden but banging around Northeast Portland. Led by mild-mannered but deadly senior Aaron Miles, Jefferson High's team is blazing through their season. Ranked 15th in the country, Miles already has been recruited by Kansas State. PB
