MUSIC—In the past 45 years, home recording savant R. Stevie Moore has written and recorded more songs than you've had hot dinners, but it's only recently that the man has started performing live. Catch his inexact pop gems, which will be contrasted perfectly tonight with the precise, brilliant pop of LAKE. NL

FILM—Every citizen of Portland should watch the blistering documentary Alien Boy—exploring the tragic life and death of James Chasse Jr. (who died at the hands of Portland police). Besides highlighting the obvious flaws in Portland's mental health system, this film shines a harsh light on the bad apples in the police bureau—and what's not being done about them. WSH
