STORY TIME—A former harem girl, a corrections officer, and a celebrity personal assistant take the stage of the Mission Theater to tell us their experiences at Back Fence PDX, with tonight's theme of "At Your Service." If you're feeling especially disgruntled with your job this week, these stories will make you feel much, much better. BT
Mission Theater, 1624 NW Glisan, 7:30 pm, $14

FREE NICE—Portland duo Nice Nice are sonic adventurers, exploring uncharted musical territory with ambitious arrangements and phenomenal musicianship. Their thunderous live show sounds like the work of an army, but the interplay between Jason Buehler and Mark Shirazi couldn't be more precise. See for yourself tonight, for free! NL
