MUSIC—The well-heeled Dig a Pony deserves to have a happy birthday. Three years ago, they really livened up the corner of SE Grand and Morrison with their beautiful bar. Celebrate with 'em, because they're inviting Blouse, Guantanamo Baywatch, and some secret guests to soundtrack the evening, alongside DJs Pretty Ugly and El Dorado. And it's free! What a lovely gesture, you dapper DAP! CF

FILM—There's never been anything quite like Richard Linklater's Boyhood. Filmed over a period of 12 years, it follows one Texan boy as he moves through life's milestones, through family trouble and relationships and heartbreak. The story itself is simple, but there's an emotional snowball effect as the actors age with their characters. By the movie's end, you won't believe how moved and invested you are. AH
