MUSIC—It's been a long, long while since the members of Richmond Fontaine, all working on other projects, took the stage as Richmond Fontaine. Well, just like that, Richmond Fontaine has declared itself back, playing an entire week at the Crystal Hotel's Al's Den, with all sorts of special guests. Is another hiatus looming? Better not tempt fate and miss out. DCT

READING—What started as a web series with Jane Espenson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Brad Bell's Husbands is now in comic-book form. Both authors will be on hand, along with a slew of Portland comics artists (Ron Chan, Ben Dewey, Natalie Nourigat), to read from the new Dark Horse book that furthers the hijinks of famous gay couple Cheeks and Brady.
