A RARE SOUL—Soul night isn't just for Rotture anymore, kids. Rare 45 collector DJ Cooky (who two-times as part of Loch Lomond and Y La Bamba) is starting up In the Cooky Jar, a brand-new northern soul night far down south at the Woods. Expect Motown; expect Stax; expect tight pants, short skirts, and a good time. SM
The Woods, 6637 SE Milwaukie, 10 pm, $3

Yep, just the one tonight—our other pick for the evening, Sage Francis, was cancelled, which unfortunately deprived Ezra of the chance to use the headline "Sage Against the Machine." I know he was proud of that one.
