BURLESQUE—Here's hoping Tempest Storm's return to the Star won't set off another "burlesque war" like it did in 1953 when she ruled its stage. The famous flame-haired beauty has been in the peeler biz for over half a century, and for two nights the Las Vegas resident headlines a showcase of burlesque from Stumptown's finest. This is some historic sexiness, ladies and germs. CF
Star Theater, 13 NW 6th, Thurs-Fri 9 pm, $20-50
WEIRD AL—It says a lot that despite decades, "Weird Al" Yankovic is still the only guy who can do what he does as well as he does. From Dr. Demento to UHF to CD to YouTube, the ever-adapting, ever-clever Weird Al's still around, still being great. You know what that makes him? AN IRREPLACEABLE CULTURAL ICON AND A MUSICAL AND COMEDIC GENIUS. EH
Oregon Zoo, 4001 SW Canyon, 7 pm, $29.50-49.50 (hunt hard for tickets!), all ages
UPDATE!: The Tempest Storm show has been cancelled.
