STORIES—Branching out from their focus on music, film, and visual art made by women, Siren Nation's launching the Broadcast (get it?), their all-lady live storytelling event tonight, with com-edian Kirsten Kuppenbender, former Mercury reporter/author of Sex from Scratch Sarah Mirk, and a whole slew of awesome ladies telling tales of failure (!), plus hilarious host Amy Miller. MEGAN BURBANK
The Secret Society, 116 NE Russell, 8 pm, $12-15

MUSIC—Australia's Tame Impala have injected a shot into the third eye of vintage psychedelia by adding slippery R&B synths, taut dance-floor beats, and glossy '80s movie-soundtrack balladry to all those smokestack guitars and bluesy riffing. With two classic albums under their belt and a third out in July, they just keep getting bigger and better. NED LANNAMANN
w/Kuroma; Roseland, 8 NW 6th, 8 pm, $30 (good luck finding tix), all ages


MANILOW—Who was the one singer beloved by both Frank Sinatra and Bob Dylan? Barry Motherfucking Manilow. The top balladeer of the '70s, he's responsible for the chart-topping "Mandy," "Copacabana," "Looks Like We Made It"... shall I continue? FINE! "I Write the Songs," "Can't Smile Without You," and countless others, because Barry Motherfucking Manilow is a one-of-a-kind pop-music juggernaut. WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY
w/Dave Koz; Moda Center, 1 Winning Way, 7:30 pm, $19.75-$129.75, all ages

COMEDY—Jim Jefferies could be considered a funny bastard. The Aussie stand-up has bits about US gun control and freedom that are spot-on and hysterical. If you can stomach his similarity to Seth MacFarlane and a testosteroneladen pandering to chest-thumping bro dudes... you’ll probably like him. COURTNEY FERGUSON
Revolution Hall, 1300 SE Stark, #110, 7:30 & 10:30 pm, $39.50, all ages


MUSIC—Forget all those gimmicky '80s nights. The Rose Festival has the real deal, with three giant '80s icons: Berlin headlines, performing unforgettable gems like "Sex (I'm a...)" and "Take My Breath Away," plus college-rock faves the Smithereens playing fuzz-pop gems ("A Girl Like You") and the Tubes offering their unique slant on art-punk ("White Punks on Dope"). NED LANNAMANN
Waterfront Park, 1020 SW Naito, 7:30 pm, $25-30, all ages

COMEDY—If you love sketch comedy, you can't do better than the Aces (Shelley McLendon and Michael Fetters). Just ask Chicago's Sketch Fest, where they were among the few Pacific Northwest acts selected to perform. Their new show promises "an hour-long massage of dynamite sketch comedy... bring your own cognac and snifter." MEGAN BURBANK
Milagro Theatre, 525 SE Stark, Fri & Sat 8 pm, through June 13, $15-20


JAMMY JAM—All other parties are judged against the famous Pajama Jammy Jam from the movie House Party 2 (1991). And tonight, following a screening of the first movie at the Hollywood (part of the Everything Is Fest), this iconic event will be recreated at the Star Theater with Kid 'n Play AND Mix Master Mike—and you in your flannel jammies. WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY
House Party at Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy, 7 pm, $12; Star Theater, 13 NW 6th, 9:30 pm, $15

COMEDY—If you were watching funnies on TV during the early '90s, the Kids in the Hall were an inescapable influence—they crush, crush, crushed your head with pot philosophy and completely straight-faced cross-dressing back then. See if they can do it again, live. MARJORIE SKINNER
Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, 1037 SW Broadway, 8 pm, $56, all ages

PARADE—Fuck all other parades, because Portland's annual Starlight Parade is where it's at. There'll be over 100 illuminated entries—like high school marching bands, the BUDWEISER CLYDESDALES, drumlines, Star Wars stormtroopers (and probably a wookiee), and floats and balloons, all of it led by the 2015 grand marshal: PEEDEE, THE PDX CARPET, the most majestic googly-eyed roll of floor covering that there ever fucking was. ERIK HENRIKSEN
Downtown Portland, see for route, 8:30 pm, FREE, all ages


TRIVIA—You've seen Mad Max: Fury Road, right? If not... I can't even. But if you've got your knowledge of Imperator Furiosa and Immortan Joe down, and you know what the words "Doof Warrior" and "iOTA" have in common, then you might stand a chance at tonight's round of One Team Leaves: Mad Max Quizzery! Might. MARJORIE SKINNER
East Burn, 1800 E Burnside, 6 pm, FREE

MUSIC—Remembered best as "Chip tha Ripper," Cleveland rapper King Chip came to prominence on the now famous 2008 mixtape A Kid Named Cudi. Applying the slow "chopped and screwed" flow of the dirty south, nowadays King Chip continues to prove he's a talented emcee bringing it hard to the stage—but always with clever humor. WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY
w/Tre Redeau, Myke Bogan, & more; Peter's Room at Roseland, 8 NW 6th, 8 pm, $18, all ages


FILM—Westerns are few and far between these days—all the more reason to get excited when a great one comes along. Enter Slow West, starring Michael Fassbender and Kodi Smit-McPhee; a dreamlike saga that the Mercury's Ned Lannamann says captures a weird Wild West "of unlimited possibilities." ERIK HENRIKSEN
Cinema 21, 616 NW 21st, see, also On Demand

DRINK—In a few short years, the negroni has climbed from obscurity to a cocktail that's at every bar worth its house-made bitters. Starting today for Negroni Week, a few dozen of Portland's best eateries will mix up this bittersweet elixir of Campari, gin, and vermouth, with the proceeds going toward charity. ANDREA DAMEWOOD
Through June 7, for locations

PODCAST—As part of the Everything Is Festival, Greg Barris will host a live episode of his psychedelic, phantasmagorical, and just plain fuckin' weird podcast Mind Warriors, starring one of the most combustible minds of our time, the high priest of PARTY, Andrew W.K. BOBBY ROBERTS
Star Theater, 13 NW 6th, 8 pm, $18


MUSIC—Need more proof of the power of the internet? In 2013, an unknown seven-foot-tall clown set down his lantern (?), looked disdainfully into a camera, and boomed out a Lorde cover. Then reflect on how Puddles the Clown and his Puddles Pity Party are playing the Alberta Rose less than two years later. The guy's talented as hell, but INTERNET. DIRK VANDERHART
Alberta Rose Theatre, 3000 NE Alberta, 8 pm, $30

MUSIC—It's only been five months since Zola Jesus swirled through town, but the Midwestern gothy gal is welcome back anytime. Her latest album, Taiga, is packed with wintery pop, huge symphonies of sound, and big operatic vocals. She also puts on quite the live show. CF
Magic Fades, Ghost Feet; Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, 9 pm, $3 w/RSVP to
