MUSIC—Tonight's proof positive of the depth and richness of Portland's music scene, with four incredible local bands sharing the stage, including percussionists 1939 Ensemble, post-punk detonators Months, and eruptive bliss-rockers the Fourth Wall. It's a fundraiser for the Bernie Sanders campaign, but even if you're not feeling the Bern, we heartily endorse these bands. NED LANNAMANN
w/Dead Man Talking; Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, 8 pm, $13-15

VISUAL ART—Tonight, Holocene hosts Holding Space, a multidisciplinary art show and performance featuring Portland artists of color "exploring space, memory, time, lineage, and rituals of sharing." The lineup includes some of the city's most compelling artmakers, like Black Portlanders photographer and writer Intisar Abioto and Dao Strom, experimental author of We Were Meant to Be a Gentle People. MEGAN BURBANK
Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison, 8 pm, $8-10


FILMS—The past few weeks have sucked: First we lost David Bowie, and then we lost Alan Rickman. Tonight, the Hollywood remembers both: First with a screening of Bowie's bizarre 1983 vampire flick The Hunger, followed by Rickman's career-making turn in 1988's action classic Die Hard. Both are always worth seeing on the big screen—this time, with a beer or two to drown your sorrows. ERIK HENRIKSEN
Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy, The Hunger at 7:30 pm, Die Hard at 9:40 pm, $8 per film

MUSIC—Dr. Dog's about to put out their new album, The Psychedelic Swamp, which includes re-recordings of some of their earliest songs, and they're using fake boner-pill infomercials to pimp the effort. Not the most creative endeavor from the Philly pop group, but we trust these fuzzy physicians. DIRK VANDERHART
w/Hop Along; Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside, 8 pm, $25-27, all ages


DANCE—In a town that has really good queer dance nights, Yes, Please! at Holocene is a standout. Armed with room-shaking DJs such as Vera Rubin, Laura Lynn, and DJ Sappho spinning the hottest garage, disco, and house, tonight will also feature the wondrous drag fabulousness of DieAna Dae. As the title clearly states, "Yes, Please!" WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY
Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison, 9 pm, $5

COMEDY—Presentations are the worst—except when they're part of Speechless, where comedians and improvisers do their best to present a fun PowerPoint... without any advance knowledge of what's on their slides. Tonight's the Portland debut of the show, with presenters like Lez Stand Up's Kirsten Kuppenbender and Late Night Action's (and the Mercury's) Bri Pruett. Plus! My boss, Merc Editor Wm. Steven Humphrey, is a judge! Trust me, he's GREAT at judging stuff. ERIK HENRIKSEN
Siren Theater, 315 NW Davis, 8 pm, $10


MUSIC—Today's the second of three days of the Sabertooth Micro Fest, and the lineup includes Red Fang, YOB, Witch Mountain, and Eternal Tapestry! It's a psychedelic-themed stoner festival, but consume those drugs before you go, because you can't take 'em into the Crystal Ballroom. SHELBY R. KING
Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside, Fri 8 pm, Sat & Sun 6:30 pm, $30-35 ($85-90 fest pass), all ages

DANCE—It's been scientifically proven that you're a fan of moving your ass to the sounds of '90s and '00s hip-hop and R&B. That's why we'll expect to see YOU at this wickedly fun dance/tribute night spotlighting the brilliance of Aaliyah and Outkast. DJs Duncan Gerow, Anechoic, Lamar Leroy, and B Hammer'D will be conducting this dance train to Hot 'n' Sweaty Town. WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY
The Spare Room, 4830 NE 42nd, 9 pm, $5


MUSIC—The Sabertooth Micro Fest keeps trucking along with another jam-packed bill of great psych and psych-adjacent music. Built to Spill is plenty, but when you throw in an acoustic set from Mikal Cronin and Brett Netson's Snakes, you have every reason to leave your Super Bowl party early. NED LANNAMANN
w/the Quick and Easy Boys, Heron Oblivion; Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside, Fri 8 pm, Sat & Sun 6:30 pm, $30-35 ($85-90 fest pass), all ages

SUPER BOWL—Today's big game is America's most egalitarian national holiday. You don't have to give turd one about Denver or Carolina to enjoy it! Musical acts! Ridiculous ads! Puppies and kitties frolicking! All of it paired with plates and plates of nutritionally-questionable-yet-extremely-delicious foodstuffs! Cram it all down your maw between frequent barbaric yawps! It's the Super Bowl goddammit! BOBBY ROBERTS
Aladdin Theater, 3017 SE Milwaukie; Empirical Theatre at OMSI (IMAX-sized!), 1945 SE Water; or on your own couch you slovenly Hutt, 3:25 pm, FREE


FILM—A new Coen brothers movie is better than Christmas. A new Coen brothers movie is better than your wedding. A new Coen brothers movie is better than that one time your parents weren't ashamed of you. This new Coen brothers movie is Hail, Caesar!, and it stars everyone you like (Channing Tatum! George Clooney! Scarlett Johansson! Dolph Lundgren?), and even if it's a "bad" Coen brothers movie, it'll still be better than 99.99 percent of all other movies. ERIK HENRIKSEN
Various Theaters, see Film Times for showtimes

MUSIC—With movements named for planets, Gustav Holst's The Planets is to orchestra kids what "Smoke on the Water" is to third-graders learning guitar: the only piece that matters. Star Wars composer John Williams borrowed heavily from Holst at George Lucas' request, and—from the majestic propulsion of "Mars" to the creepy little staccato hits of "Neptune"—it's easy to see why. MEGAN BURBANK
Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, 1037 SW Broadway, Sat 7:30 pm, Sun 2 pm, Mon 8 pm, $35-95, all ages


COMEDY—Maria Bamford is funny. Rolling Stone named her one of their 50 funniest people, she's had two Comedy Central specials, made a guest appearance on Louie, and now she's coming back to Portland to entertain us. She'll be at Helium tonight and tomorrow, and you'll want to get your tickets quick, because they're gonna sell out. SHELBY R. KING
w/Jackie Kashian; Helium Comedy Club, 1510 SE 9th, Tues-Wed, 7:15 & 9:30 pm, $27-35

MARDI GRAS—No one would blame you if you buried yourself in a decommissioned septic tank just to avoid any downtown Mardi Gras celebrations. BUT FIRST! Stop by the Bon Temps Mardi Gras dance night hosted by the always reliable DJ Cooky Parker and Newrotics. Their floor-packing New Orleans-style soul, funk, and bounce will reignite your love for the holiday. WM STEVEN HUMPHREY
Dig a Pony, 736 SE Grand, 9 pm, FREE

TALK—Since being released from their sentences on trumped-up hooligan charges in 2013, the members of Russian punk outfit Pussy Riot have been speaking a lot about what they'd previously mostly sung about. (Summary: Russia's messed up.) Tonight, the ladies sit down with Storm Large and OPB's John Sepulvado to tell you all about it. DIRK VANDERHART
Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside, 8 pm, $39.50-45, all ages
