Stuff You Missed in History Class
Holly Frey and Tracy V. Wilson bring their skewed-yet-insightful look back at lesser-known aspects of history to Portland when their acclaimed, long-running podcast has their first ever national tour stop for a live taping at the Aladdin Theater. (8 pm, Aladdin Theater, $25-30, all ages)

Erin Gibson
Erin Gibson is not only half the hilarity behind politics comedy podcast Throwing Shade, she also created and directed the outstanding Game of Thrones spoof show Gay of Thrones with “her real-life hair stylist” Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness. For years Gibson has proudly proclaimed herself Feminasty, but now she’s penned a collection of essays, ready to break down our outrage into tears of laughter.

Mothers, Mega Bog
Singer/songwriter Kristine Leschper and her Athens, Georgia-based band bring their striking indie folk and rock sounds down to the Liquor Store for an intimate Portland show supporting their forthcoming full-length. Multi-instrumentalist Erin Birgy (AKA Mega Bog) rounds out the proceedings with her dynamic blend of folk, pop, and jazz. (9 pm, The Liquor Store, $12-15)

Miss Rayon, Marriage + Cancer, Dirty Princess
Local post-punks Miss Rayon are heading out on tour, and Portland punk and noise rock outfits Marriage + Cancer and Dirty Princess joining forces to help see them off in style with a Tuesday night rager at the Fixin' To. (8 pm, The Fixin' To, $7)

Repressed Cinema: Vampire Double Feature
Ian Sundahl reaches into his vault full of 16mm fascinations and presents a double feature full of undead low-budget delights, starting with Andy Milligan's 1970 green-skinned tale of Carfax Abbey, The Body Beneath, about an inbred family of vampires who think a family tree should have more than the one branch. The chaser to that stiff drink is 2000's Crimson Heather by Joe Sherlock, about a vampire and a vampire hunter who share a complicated relationship. Milligan's biographer Jimmy McDonough and Sherlock in attendance. (7:30 pm, Hollywood Theatre, $7-9) BOBBY ROBERTS

Raquel Divar, Cory O, Penny Wide Pupils, Bodie, One Wub
While they definitely qualify as a hip-hop act, Raquel Divar and Cory O are often booked for non-hip-hop lineups like the SYNT (See You Next Tuesday) weekly show dedicated to dubstep and the “deeper, darker side of bass music” at Bit House Saloon. The last time I saw Raquel Divar take the mic was at the Thesis in August, and it might have been her best performance to date. The crowd was apparently feeling that same energy as Raquel expertly performed challenging verses to dark tracks like “Runners Anthem,” “Snakes and the City,” and “Vandals,” from Divar and O’s new collaborative EP The Reign. There’s no better time than the present to go support this dynamic producer/MC duo. (9 pm, Bit House Saloon, free) JENNI MOORE

Hermitage Piano Trio
Tonight, the technically impeccable Hermitage Piano Trio represents their motherland with an all-Russian program featuring Tchaikovsky’s delightful take on the months of the year, as well as a more melancholic piece created by a 19-year-old Rachmaninoff. Perhaps the ultimate reason to attend, though, is to give witness to the Piano Trio No. 2 composed by the emotionally tortured Dmitri Shostakovich. Created during World War II, this uncanny work of dissonant tones, agitated rhythms, and unsettled sonic quality somehow manages to capture the reality of millions dead and millions more terrorized. The piano, cello, and violin have never sounded more disturbing. (7:30 pm, PSU Lincoln Performance Hall, $30-55) BRIAN HORAY

Esmé Patterson, Laura Palmer's Death Parade
The Denver-based singer/songwriter brings her folksy blend of indie pop and dream rock back to the Mississippi Studios stage for a headlining show. (9 pm, Mississippi Studios, $12-15)

The Dream Syndicate, Matthew Sweet
This co-headlining bill connects two acts that reintroduced a melodic edge to guitar rock during their respective heydays. The Paisley-Underground-affiliated Dream Syndicate holds down the spacier end of things. Their return in 2012 after a quarter-century-long split culminated in the recent LP How Did I Find Myself Here?, a fantastic collection of craggy psych-rock jams. Closing out the night is Matthew Sweet, who, since his 1991 breakthrough Girlfriend, has perfected chiming, lovestruck pop with varying degrees of volume and intensity. His latest album Tomorrow Forever is another masterwork that leans on his close reading of ’60s and ’70s classics from both sides of the Atlantic. (8:30 pm, Wonder Ballroom, $25-30) ROBERT HAM
