CHILDRENS' TV—Technically Yo Gabba Gabba! is a children's program with malformed monsters named "Foofa," "Muno," and "Toodee." But it's really for everyone. So don't feel weird if you show up at the Schnitz (with—OMG—special guest Biz Markie!) all high on legal pot and grin even harder than all the little people and their parents. DCT
Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, 1037 SW Broadway, 3 & 6 pm, $31.50-123, all ages

FILM—Let's face it, you're never going to see '90s Britpop maestros Pulp in person. So do yourself a favor and go see the documentary Pulp: A Film About Life, Death, and Supermarkets, where Jarvis Cocker & Co. tear the roof off a show in their hometown of Sheffield. It's a delightful, quirky flick full of some truly kickass performances. CF
Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy, 9:30 pm, $8


MUSIC—Portland's partying-est pizza-loving punks the Mean Jeans kick off their US tour tonight with a free show of dumb, great rawk played fast, loud, and goopy. They'll be doing double duty as the backing band for tourmate Kepi Ghoulie, so let's send 'em off with a bang. NL
w/Morons, the Lonesome Billies; White Owl Social Club, 1305 SE 8th, 9 pm, FREE

STREET FEE—After a months-long wait, we know precisely how Mayor Charlie Hales and Commissioner Steve Novick plan to raise millions for the city's roads. City council will vote on the $46 million Portland Street Fund—a cluster of income and business taxes—in early December. Angry? Elated? This afternoon's hearing is your best chance to offer thoughts. Civic participation! DVH
Portland City Hall, 1221 SW 4th, 2 pm, FREE

MUSIC—I hate to constantly bring this up... BUT! I was on the Justin Timberlake tip waaaaay before the rest of you Janie-come-latelys. I was also one of the first to purchase my tix for his sold-out 20/20 Experience tonight at the Moda. However! Check the Rose Quarter site for late rush tickets, or your old buddy Craig (who maintains a "list"). As I first told you oh-so-long ago, JT is worth it. WSH
Moda Center, 1 Center Court, 8 pm, $49.50-175, all ages


BLAZERS—When I was a kid, I'd load up EA's Bulls vs. Blazers and the NBA Playoffs for the Sega Genesis and rewrite history; Terry Porter always scored 70 points a game, and Michael Jordan won nothing. Hopefully tonight, the real-life Bulls vs. Blazers will feature hardwood devastation on a similar level. BR
Moda Center, 1 Center Court, 7:30 pm, $50-380, all ages

COMEDY—Breaking! Just as we suspected, the war on Christmas is real, and (extremely funny) sketch comedy troupe the Third Floor is leading the charge in War on Christmas, with "bullwhipped mall Santas, a washed-up Grinch, Bigfoots, nude ghosts, cocaine gift exchanges, sexy Mormons," AND "illicit Christmas shoes." Bring the whole family! Maybe don't bring the whole family. MB
Miracle Theatre, 525 SE Stark, Fri & Sat 8 pm, through Dec 20, $15-18,


COMEDY—There's on a roll, and then there's on a roll. John Oliver falls into the italicized camp. He's snatched the current events comedy crown with his amazing HBO series Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, in which he and his staff report the shit out of the world's problems before skewering them, roasting them, and serving them up hot. Catch Oliver's winsome Britishness in person tonight. DVH
Keller Auditorium, 222 SW Clay, 8 & 10:30 pm,$55, all ages

MUSIC—Our favorite musicians just so happen to be of the lady persuasion, so it's about time we honor them at the Leading Ladies in Music Awards, where the honorees include Kathy Foster of the Thermals, Rebecca Gates of the Spinanes, Mirah, and more. This celebration promises comedy, music, and an auction—all to benefit the young rockers of the Rock 'n' Roll Camp for Girls. CF
Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell, 6 pm, $20-25, all ages


MUSIC—In addition to being one of the world's best and most likeable actors, Jeff Bridges also plays music—his country songs are solidly charming and ragged in all the right places. Tonight he's in Portland with his band the Abiders, who're significantly better than his last two bands, the Starmen (1984-1990) and the Rockin' Trons (1982-1983). EH
w/Jessie Bridges; Aladdin Theater, 3017 SE Milwaukie, 8 pm, $75, all ages

MUSIC—To describe the music of Mr. Gnome as "textured" would be a grave understatement. Employing a complicated setup of pedals, Nicole Barille and Sam Meister make an incredibly rich, sometimes creepy wall of hard/soft/hard that's psychedelically cinematic and grunge as gravy. MS
w/Young Tongue; Dante's, 350 W Burnside, 8 pm, $10


FILM—Okay, so the first Hunger Games movie wasn’t so great. But the last one was fucking awesome, and director Francis Lawrence is back for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part I—the first in a two-part finale that’ll have Katniss Everdeen redefining “badass.” Also, Julianne Moore is in this one, so guess what that means: BEST PICTURE OF ALL TIME. EH
Bagdad Theater, 3702 SE Hawthorne, see Movie Times and our review, $7.50-9

COMEDY—With pathological optimism, absurd humor, and executive producer Amy Poehler, Broad City is everything I'd hoped a certain HBO show would be. Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer's youthful exuberance and poor decision-making are cry-face-inducingly funny, like a weed- and candy-addled Skype session between friends. Bring whoever wears the other half of your friendship necklace. MB
Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, 7 & 10 pm, $25 (sold out)


MUSIC—Hope you planned ahead, because Sturgill Simpson's show tonight is extra super sold out. Which stands to reason, because his sophomore album, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, is nothing short of a masterpiece, a cosmic country record that's full of magic and insight. Maybe you should start planning ahead for the next time he stops in town. NL
w/Lucette; Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, 8 pm, $15-17

GRINDHOUSE SURPRISE—You've been spoiled by curator Dan Halsted's steady stream of rare 35 mm Grindhouse films! It's to the point that he can just announce a secret screening of an unnamed film literally using only the generic descriptors "EXCITING," "AWESOME," and "FUN," and you will go! You will love it! (Whatever it is.) MS
