MUSIC—Maybe you couldn't bear to have your mellow harshed by Built to Spill's wondrous onslaught of guitars when they opened up for Death Cab for Cutie two weeks ago. Fear not, Spillheads, no mellows allowed at the Wonder, where they'll be playing the indie-rock soundtrack to your life, plus new stuff from great recent album Untethered Moon. COURTNEY FERGUSON
w/Genders, Honey Bucket; Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell, Wed (all ages) & Thurs (21+), 8:30 pm, $20-23

SOCCER—This is a great moment in history for women's professional soccer. Hot off a huge win against Japan to win the 2015 World Cup, the American squad was on fire. The Portland Thorns have a couple of those champs on their team, including Tobin Heath, who's back to give the Seattle Reign what-for! COURTNEY FERGUSON
Providence Park, 1844 SW Morrison, 7 pm, $12-35, all ages


MUSIC—Loveable metal/stoner rock band Sons of Huns get thrashy on their sophomore album, While Sleeping Stay Awake, a righteous slab of heavy riffing and power-rawk. Tonight's the local heroes' record release show, so get ready to blow out those ears and bang that head. NED LANNAMANN
w/Diesto, Old Kingdom; Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, 9 pm, $8

THEATER FEST—It's summertime, so you might think all theater's gone to seed—or is only Shakespeare in the park—but you'd be wrong! Tonight, witness brand-new theater at the 17th annual JAW Playwrights Fest. Previous year's premieres have gone on to be pretty big deals, and unlike most theater festivals, it won't cost you your firstborn child—it's free! MEGAN BURBANK
Portland Center Stage, 128 NW 11th, Thurs-Sat, FREE, for complete schedule


MUSIC—What if somebody threw a free, all-ages, all-local music festival right here in Portland? Well, PDX Pop Now! did, and they’ve been doing it every year since 2004. Today the three-day-long fest kicks off, so get yourself down under the Hawthorne Bridge and binge on the best local music has to offer. NED LANNAMANN
w/Diesto, Old Kingdom; Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, 9 pm, $8

COMEDY—With blisteringly clever insights on race, class, and culture, comedian Hari Kondabolu's one of the smartest, funniest comics working today. Seeing him live is always a blast—an experience that'll crack you up just as much as it knocks you off-balance. ERIK HENRIKSEN
Helium Comedy Club, 1510 SE 9th, Thurs 8 pm, Fri-Sat 7:30 & 10 pm, $16-34


MUSIC—Insisting that they're a "celebration rather than a tribute," Seattle's BowieVision reinterprets the classic works of David Bowie—and does so with a phenomenal amount of verve and charm. And if that's not enough for you, they'll be joined by a pretty excellently named Talking Heads tribute band, This Is Not My Beautiful Band. ERIK HENRIKSEN
Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside, 9 pm, $15

SHOPPING—It's true there are a lot of craft fairs in this city, and this weekend's Renegade Craft Fair is not the last we'll see of them this summer. But it is one of the bigger and better ones, particularly since it adds a healthy sprinkling of vendors traveling from out of state to mix in with some of our own region's all-stars. MARJORIE SKINNER
Rejuvenation, 1100 SE Grand, Sat & Sun 11 am-6 pm, FREE

MUSIC—Hope you got tickets to this white-hot Jamie xx show. You didn't? Oh, geez, well time to snuggle up to your friendly neighborhood scalper. This shit's full for good reason—producer Jamie Smith's debut solo album, In Colour, is evocative, danceable, and full of loops and samples perfect for sweating the night away. COURTNEY FERGUSON
w/Mattis; Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell, 9 pm, $18-22


FLOATING—Pay no attention to the toxic algae, kids, the Willamette River is just fine for swimming. No, really! The Big Float aims to help Portlanders reclaim our river for recreation, with a huge group float, plus live music, food, a huge slip 'n' slide, and a ton of clean, safe fun. Really. MARJORIE SKINNER
Tom McCall Bowl, SW Columbia & Naito, 11 am-6 pm, $8-10 (bring your own life jacket), all ages

STREET FAIR—Not all street fairs are created equal, but the Lents Street Fair rises above the summer fray of crowded outdoor fêtes, with a lineup including a parade, a chicken beauty contest (who's the fairest one of all?!), an appearance from the Belmont goats, and free basic bike repairs. Plus beer, bands, and arts 'n' crafts. MEGAN BURBANK
SE 91st from Foster to Reedway, parade at 11:15 am, FREE


FILM—In 1979, upstart director Ridley Scott treated B-movie tropes with fluid grace and ruthless skill in Alien; the result isn't just one of the prettiest movies ever made, it's also one of the scariest. See it at the Laurelhurst—and look forward to next week, when they'll have James Cameron's smash-bang follow-up, Aliens. ERIK HENRIKSEN
Laurelhurst Theater, 2735 E Burnside, 9:45pm, $4

MUSIC—Alan Singley and Papi Fimbres have pooled their musical resources to form Singley Fimbres Orkestra, a one-of-a-kind stew of classical, jazz, and electronic influences, resulting in space-age lounge music for a galaxy much hipper than ours. Be sure you don't miss the excellent Sama Dams at tonight's free Ear Candy show, either. NED LANNAMANN
Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, 9 pm, FREE


BAR B-DAY—The beautiful, popular girl of Portland bars, Dig a Pony is turning four! This calls for a major bash, featuring Nick Waterhouse and the Pain, the Shivas, and more to keep you tapping along as this fine establishment embarks on another year. MARJORIE SKINNER
w/Pearles, DJs Waterhouse & Cooky Parker; Dig a Pony, 736 SE Grand, 8 pm, FREE

THEATER—Beloved culinary ne'er-do-well Anthony Bourdain's a happy medium between the almost-too-soothing Barefoot Contessa and the out-of-control jerkiness of Gordon Ramsay. Tonight, see Bourdain's IRL show Close to the Bone. Up for discussion: street food and endless travel, with just the right amount of irreverence. MEGAN BURBANK
Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, 1037 SW Broadway, 7:30 pm, $64.55-227, all ages
