QUEER HORROR—The Hollywood's bimonthly Queer Horror series is a goddamn Portland treasure, featuring scary flicks with an LGBT bent. This week's offering: 1985's Fright Night in 35mm, which boasts an almost entirely queer supporting cast, and is hilarious to boot. Plus it'll be hosted by the fantabulous Carla Rossi, Portland's premier drag clown! Love it! WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY
Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy, 9:30 pm, $8


MUSIC—It's been many moons since Portland's double-headed Quasi beast roared 'round these parts, but tonight the indomitable duo of Sam Coomes and Janet Weiss returns, not once but TWICE, with an all-ages early show and a later show for all the fogeys. NED LANNAMANN
Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, 6 pm, $12-14, all ages; 9 pm, $14-16, 21+ (w/Sally Timms, Sun Foot)

DANCE NIGHT—I actually hate that I'm writing this, but if you haven't danced your ass off at Killingsworth Dynasty yet, you're late to the party. The newish North Portland venue is one of the best boogie spots in the city, and it's steps from my door. So go once—maybe to tonight's set from DJ troupe Strange Babes—but don't tell anybody.

DANCE—One of the most beloved of Portland queer dance nights, Gaycation, is saying a fond farewell after 10 years of sweating up the dance floor. Don't be the butthole that misses this ass-shaking bon voyage, featuring DJs Snowtiger and Mr. Charming, as well as Gossip Cat, Automaton, and more. WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY
Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison,9 pm, $7-10

MUSIC—Cincinnati band Wussy are a pair of earmuffs for your soul—warm, fuzzy, and gloriously familiar. With vocals by Chuck Cleaver and Lisa Walker, their atmospheric tunes are driving, earnest, and heartfelt, like Tom Petty penned a love letter to his favorite shoegaze wuss-rock from the '90s. Pretty great, in other words. COURTNEY FERGUSON
w/Rubella Graves; Dante's, 350 W Burnside, 9 pm, $10


MUSIC—Historically, Dana Buoy (the nom de record of Akron/Family drummer and Portland homeboy Dana Janssen) has married the cosmic with the catchy, with stratospheric pop that explores both inner and outer space. Tonight's Dana Buoy's first live show of the year, and the possibilities are endless. NED LANNAMANN
w/Mrch, Foreign Orange; Rontoms, 600 E Burnside, FREE

BAT MANIA—Zonk! Kpow! Yippy! It's the battiest time of the year with the semi-regular Gotham a Go-Go, in which tribute is paid to the 1960s TV campfest Batman. Dress as your favorite villain or Catwoman (Julie Newmar!), and shake your hot-stuff to bands Bat-Mania and the Hauer Things, while DJ Gregarious keeps the party going! COURTNEY FERGUSON
White Owl Social Club, 1305 SE 8th, 8 pm, $5

TIMBERS—For the fan of a championship team, it's never off-season. Every day, you're stuck daydreaming about the highlights of last year (THREE POSTS!). Well, snap out of it. Your Portland Timbers have preseason matches underway. This evening, it's Minnesota United FC at home. DIRK VANDERHART
Providence Park, 1844 SW Morrison,5 pm, $10-90, all ages, broadcasting live at


FILM—After blowing up at Sundance and Fantastic Fest, Robert Eggers' acclaimed horror film The Witch has finally come to Portland. Set in 1630, Eggers' tale finds a family settling in next to a very unsettling patch of New England forest... at which point everything goes to shit. Do your best to steel yourself beforehand, because The Witch isn't just great filmmaking—it's also scary as hell. ERIK HENRIKSEN

FILM—In the 1980 grindhouse flick Night of the Juggler, a very young James Brolin plays an ex-cop who's searching for his kidnapped daughter in a gritty New York City. It's a smorgasbord of car chases, knife fights, and prostitutes with some great footage of New York at its sleaziest in this 35mm screening. SHELBY R. KING
Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy, 7:30 pm, $8

MUSIC—Atlanta hip-hop group Migos recently reunited following the incarceration of Offset. Now they're hitting the road for the Dab Tour, a name derived from their popular dance that mimics the act of dabbing. Migos is well known for their 2013 track "Versace," which features the catchy chorus, "Versace, Versace, Versace, Versace." CIARA DOLAN
Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell, 8 pm, $26.50-28, all ages
