Portland Timbers vs. New York Red Bulls
There were a lot of positives to take away from the Timber’s 3-1 home win over Los Angeles earlier this month; veteran captain Liam Ridgewell returning from injury and scoring the game’s opening goal was encouraging, but even more crucial was his ability to link up with the newly signed Larrys Mabiala and anchor a backline that needs to be clinical heading into the final stretch of the season. Playoff races don’t get any tighter than they are right now, and the Timbers will need to take full advantage of every home match from here on out. CHIPP TERWILLIGER

Logan Lucky is consistently hilarious and unexpectedly sweet. And in an era when America’s economic disparities threaten to tear the country apart, watching a bunch of blue-collar Southerners try to screw over the rich and undermine class-based capitalism certainly feels culturally relevant. But more than anything else, this thing is fast and funny and fun—and a reminder of how much better movies are when Soderbergh’s making them. Here’s hoping he sticks around. ERIK HENRIKSEN

Not to be confused with Rashida and Kidada’s dad, this Quincy Jones is a winsome comedian from LA by way of Seattle, and lucky for us, he’s bringing his winning personality, expert crowdwork, and varsity-level observational humor to the Siren Theater, now on a monthly basis.

Ozomatli, La Misa Negra
Since forming in 1995, eclectic LA six-piece Ozomatli has become known as the Dioses del Baile (Gods of Dance). Their music pulls from modern and classic Latin, hip-hop, urban, and other world music, and they’re highly lauded for their political activism. They’re also great live—anyone who started college at the University of Oregon in 2006 will probably remember the outdoor concert/dance party they put on in the quad. JENNI MOORE

Thanks to “Feel It All Around” being the theme song of the controversial TV series Portlandia, there’ll always be an association between Portland and Washed Out (AKA Ernest Greene). But Greene’s much more than that overplayed single—this summer he released Mister Mellow, his shortest, sweetest, and most sample-driven album yet. It’s saturated with the grooves of genres like disco, funk, house, and pop, all in a bite-sized, easily digestible package. DELANEY MOTTER
