Old Time Relijun, Oh Rose
In Olympia in the early 2000s, Old Time Relijun shows were mystical freak-outs that invited all present to lose their dancefloor inhibitions. Part Captain Beefheart, part Screaming Jay Hawkins, and part no-wave party band, they tapped into rock ’n’ roll's transcendent possibilities in ways previously deemed lost and forgotten. When they were onstage, it was easy to believe they were creating something that had never existed before—a style of music the rest of us had only heard in our dreams. After a decade-long hiatus, Old Time Relijun is back for a short West Coast tour that kicks off in Portland to celebrate the band’s 23rd anniversary.

Cameron Esposito, Caitlin Weierhauser
This year Cameron Esposito accomplished her goal to displace aggro male comedians as the top browser result for the phrase “rape jokes” with her powerful special Rape Jokes, which has so far raised over $72,000 for RAINN. Never one to slow her roll, Esposito is already back on stage, touring a new live show. Person of Consequence touches on recent changes she’s weathered with the heartfelt humor we’ve come to expect from this brilliant comedian. (8 pm, Revolution Hall, $25, all ages) SUZETTE SMITH

Mommie Dearest
You're supposed to take Mommie Dearest seriously. You cannot possibly take it seriously, though. There is nothing about it that works on any intended level. But that is fine. That is how camp is made. Not the sort of camp where people are going over the top knowingly, winkingly—letting you know it's okay, we're all in on the joke, it's fine here. Not that chickenshit half-assed camp they got 'round Rocky Horror way. This is Faye Dunaway serving up weapons-grade camp in a form so undiluted Walter White would marvel at the purity of its chemical composition. And that's the whole point of seeing Mommie Dearest—because you're a cringe-addict, a purveyor of superlative pettiness, and when you jones for unapologetic, manipulative, emotionally ugly trash, Mommie Dearest will always deliver. (7 pm & 9:30 pm, Fifth Avenue Cinema, $4-5) BOBBY ROBERTS

Saroon, Sheers, Kelli Schaefer
Saroon's music unfolds unhurriedly, using arpeggiated chords, dreamy studio effects, soft horn parts, honeyed backing vocals, and elongated melodies to build a comforting sound world. Imagine the Long Winters’ John Roderick fronting a drowsy baroque-pop band, and you’re in the right ballpark. (8 pm, Turn! Turn! Turn!, $7) BEN SALMON
