WEDNESDAY, JUNE 12

BLACKBIRD CLUB—Way back when this city's early adopters were laying the groundwork for the culture Portland would become known for, everyone was drinking at the Blackbird—a club that literally got hit by a car and died. Pay tribute tonight with XRAY Fest's retrospective, featuring some of its elder denizens! MS
w/31Knots, Made for TV Movie, E*Rock, & more; Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison, 9 pm, $5

MUSIC—Andrew Savage's ADD-induced musical chameleonism has finally led him to something essential rather than merely excellent. Parquet Courts are post-punk for the post-everything generation, with a soul and swagger that's even more impressive in the flesh. Turn up early for Naomi Punk's riff-heavy sludge. AR
w/Blood Beach; Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside, 9 pm, $12

THURSDAY, JUNE 13

GIGANTIC MUSIC—What has 16 albums, four arms, six eyes, and two Johns? Nope, not a very specific prostitute! It's the loveable goofballs They Might Be Giants, touring the land with their backing band on the wings of new album Nanobots. Maybe you've seen the rowdy popsters before, but have you ever regretted it? CF
w/Moon Hooch; Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside, 9 pm, $21-23, 14+

COMEDY—If you miss Stuart from MADtv, you should probably check out Michael McDonald's stand-up. (Not the yacht-rock one!) The man's a tall drink of funny, using his big ol' baby blues to pop-eyed effect, and while he's probably not going to prance around and say, "Look what I can do," he will invariably make you laugh. CF
Helium Comedy Club, 1510 SE 9th, Thurs 8 pm, Fri-Sat 7:30 & 10 pm, $15-30

FRIDAY, JUNE 14

MUMMY—The mummies are coming! OMSI's new exhibit, Mummies of the World, opens today, featuring 40 mummies and artifacts from not just Egypt but all over the world. With some dating back to 6,500 years ago, these are actual people—and dogs! and monkeys!—preserved to last for centuries. It's touted as the largest exhibit of real mummies and artifacts ever assembled. NL
OMSI, 1945 SE Water, June 14-Sept 8, Sun-Thurs 9:30 am-7 pm, Fri-Sat 9:30 am-9 pm, $21/adults, $13/kids

FILM—1984's The Terminator and 1991's Terminator 2: Judgment Day are radically different movies—the first is a lean, mean thriller, and the second's a big, overblown blockbuster. Both are fantastic. Tonight, see a rare, 35mm double feature of James Cameron's robo-epics—and Lompoc Brewing will be on hand with their Ryes of the Machines IPA, plus seven other sci-fi-inspired beers. EH
Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy, The Terminator at 7:30 pm, Terminator 2 at 9:30 pm, $8

SATURDAY, JUNE 15

SUMMER SALUTE—Give a proper salute to the best season of the year with Deschutes' Salute to Summer, featuring jams from DJ Cooky Parker, Electric Ill, and Adventure Galley coming atcha from the lanes. Plus, Da Booth photos and a look at the venue's new game room. MS
Grand Central Bowl, 808 SE Morrison, 9 pm, FREE

B-BOYS TRIBUTE—Last year, right after the Beastie Boys' Adam Yauch died (way too young) of cancer, a whole mess of Portland acts staged a super fun tribute show in his honor. It was such a hoot, they're doing it again—bringing back members of Pinehurst Kids, the Decemberists, and Lifesavas—and helping out the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Oregon. DCT 
Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell, 9 pm, $8, all ages

SUNDAY, JUNE 16

PRIDE—Hey straights! You can bet their sweet booty the queer community will be at today's annual Pride Parade—but it's especially important that you show up this year, too! We're all taking marriage equality to the ballot in 2014, so let's stand up now and show our brothers and sisters (and the world!) that equal rights are everyone's rights. See you at the parade! WSH
Pride Parade, kick off at NW Park & Burnside, ends on the waterfront, see full parade route, 11 am, FREE

PUNK FEST—The weekend-long Gathering of the Goofpunx is an all-ages DIY punk fest with more than 30 bands of all stripes and sizes playing various venues around town. Sunday's festivities kick off with a punk-rock spelling bee, a matinee show with sets from Street Eaters and TeenSpot, and an evening show headlined by Harry and the Potters! NL

BIKES!—The Zoobomb Century is an annual study in fortitude. Scrunch onto a child's bike, grab an all-day MAX pass, and ride Portland's illustrious Zoobomb route 30 or so times until you hit the 100-mile mark. Then grab a drink; 100 miles ain't easy—even downhill. DVH
Meet at SW Fairview and Knights, 10 am, $5 for an all-day MAX pass to ride back up the hill

MONDAY, JUNE 17

READINGS—Judy Blume is an American hero. Her birthday SHOULD be a national holiday, but until she gets the recognition she deserves, Blumesday is a local affair featuring writers Courtenay Hameister, B. Frayn Masters, and more reading from classics like Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret and Blubber. Plus, the audience is invited to play along with a rousing game of "Name that Blume!" AH
Secret Society, 116 NE Russell, 7 pm, $8-10

IMPROV—Portland Center Stage welcomes four of Portland's best improvisers to provide Portland-inspired laffs based on non-Portlander Lauren Weedman's current show The People's Republic of Portland, and starring Portland's Brad Fortier, Portland's Shelley McLendon, Portland's Nicholas Kessler, and Portland's Marilyn Divine... and who am I forgetting? OH! Portland. WSH
Portland Center Stage's Ellyn Bye Studio at the Armory, 128 NW 11th, 8 pm, $5-10

TUESDAY, JUNE 18

MUSIC—The Memories' gorgeous druggy offerings slide and chime their way to the two-minute mark before losing interest and moving on. It makes them an oddly compelling act and perfect centerpiece for the Woolen Men's perfectly crafted lo-fi and Sauna's giggling surf-pop. AR
Record Room, 8 NE Killingsworth, 8 pm, $5

FILM—The granddaddy of all superheroes has had a spotty record when it comes to movies, but Man of Steel just might be the movie of the summer. Starring some dude from The Tudors as Superman—alongside Michael Shannon, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, and Kevin Motherfucking Costner—Zack Snyder's reboot is ambitious, grandiose, and a whole lot of fun.

Roseway Theater, 7229 NE Sandy, see Film Times, $7
