FASHION—The semi-annual Fade to Light fashion show combines new work from some of the city's most interesting apparel designers with the magic of moviemaking. Keep your eyes peeled for collections from showstoppers like Michelle Lesniak and WWJJD, plus collaborative short films that will help set each designer's scene. MARJORIE SKINNER
Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside, 8 pm, $12-40, all ages

BASKETBALL—The Blazers, even after incurring a few nasty injuries that threatened to turn the team colors into black and blue, are still, somehow, doing better than the San Antonio Spurs—on paper, that is. Championships are not won on paper. Wondering about the Blazers' potential in the playoffs? You should watch this game. BOBBY ROBERTS
Moda Center, 1 Center Court, 7:30 pm, $30 & up, all ages


MUSIC—We've been missing the dreamy distortion of Genders for the past five months, but they're finally playing a show, and since they've been working on new material with Jackpot!'s Larry Crane and the Helio Sequence's Brandon Summers, perhaps they'll grace us with some lovely new tunes. NED LANNAMANN
w/Gothic Tropic, Lucy; Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison, 8:30 pm, $7-8

FILM—Hello kiddies! It's time to relive the terrible bit of horror that was Tales from the Crypt's 1995 cinematic foray Demon Knight. Better yet, heckle the shit out of it at Hecklevision, where your funny texts appear onscreen as the Crypt Keeper makes pun after wonderful pun and Billy Zane and Jada Pinkett Smith battle it out in bloody fashion. COURTNEY FERGUSON
Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy, 9:30 pm, $8


MUSIC—One of my best musical memories remains seeing Langhorne Slim in the woods at Pickathon back in 2010, a gig so earnest and rollicking that blood ended up splattering a banjo. Tonight, the Slim takes the stage solo for a whole bunch of sharp, earnest country; expect it to be just as intense and just as fun. ERIK HENRIKSEN
w/Jonny Fritz; Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside, 9 pm, $15

MUSIC—Turn! Turn! Turn! has everything you love under one roof: regional brew on tap, records and listening stations, coffee, comfy furniture, live entertainment, and vintage things. They're celebrating the one-year mark with a full weekend of music featuring bands like the Woolen Men, Sir Richard Bishop, and kicking it off tonight will be thee Sam Coomes. MARJORIE SKINNER
Turn! Turn! Turn!, 8 NE Killingsworth, Fri-Sun 8:30 pm, $6-7 ($15 weekend pass)


BANDS 'N' BEERS—Here's a great way to get SUPER HAPPY DRUNK and not feel so BAD about it. It's called the Malt Ball, and it's a showcase for some of the city's BEST local bands (Holy Grove, Blue Skies for Black Hearts, Pinehurst Kids) and some of the state's BEST craft brewers (Fort George, Hopworks, Base Camp, Laurelwood)—who've all been asked to magick up some special suds just for the show. DENIS C. THERIAULT
Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell, first showcase 2-7 pm, second showcase 8 pm-1 am, $15-25 (get your tickets at!)

COMEDY—The Funny Over Everything showcase is a guaranteed hit in the laffs department. Stand-up Baron Vaughn will drive that point home with his smart, energetic, and funny-as-get-out set on Saturday. He's only been getting better every year at Portland's annual Bridgetown Comedy Fest, so tonight should be a real humdinger. COURTNEY FERGUSON
Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy, 7 pm, $10


MUSIC—You might know Daniel Lanois best from his numerous production credits (Peter Gabriel, Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris), but he's run a parallel career with albums of his own, from the gorgeous, folk-flecked Acadie to the remarkable new Flesh and Machine, which warps his trademark guitar-tronics into cosmic testimonials. NED LANNAMANN
w/Rocco DeLuca; Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside, 8 pm, $25

COMEDY—Rightfully dubbed "the funniest person on Twitter" and an accomplished author, the whip-smart Rob Delaney is bringing his razor-sharp wit to the Crystal. His anecdotes about married life, kids, and the fucking idiocy of male-dominated politics and pop culture are spot-on brilliant, and will make you feel like a better person for seeing him live. WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY
Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside, 8 pm, $25, all ages


TV—Here's your official reminder that the entire third season of the highly acclaimed House of Cards is now available on Netflix. This season, the inscrutable Frank Underwood (an extremely oily Kevin Spacey) may have achieved his sought-after dream, but now finds his long supportive wife Claire (the terrific Robin Wright) is ready for her moment in the evil power-mad sun. Don't miss it! WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY
Netflix, all episodes of season three currently streaming now

FILM—Simultaneously worshipping and taking the piss out of 007, Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service features Colin Firth as a super-cool gentleman spy, Taron Egerton as a grungy street kid/new recruit, and Samuel L. Jackson as a lisping madman. It's also as giddily funny as it is gleefully violent. Which is... a lot. ERIK HENRIKSEN
Various Theaters, see Movie Times for locations and showtimes


MUSIC—Are you having a terrible week? Enter Caribou's (AKA Dan Snaith) easy-to-love electro-pop. He has built entire albums around learning how to swim, and his latest, Our Love, continues Swim's reliably ecstatic drum machines, jaunty synths that bob along like light reflected in a swimming pool, and some discordantly melancholy lyrics. He gets you! MEGAN BURBANK
w/Koreless; Roseland, 8 NW 6th, 9 pm, $18-20, all ages

BOOKS—From crashing at Cindy Sherman's apartment, to carrying around a human infant ON TOUR, to getting her first guitar at a party hosted by Jenny Holzer, even the most ordinary territory covered in Kim Gordon's new memoir Girl in a Band (which goes way beyond Sonic Youth) is thrilling. It seems almost unfair to all other rock memoirs. Almost. MEGAN BURBANK
