SUMMER MUSIC—This is the warm, beautiful night you'll fantasize about in rainy January: A free show from folk-pop great Holcombe Waller outside just before sunset, surrounded by a crowd of beautiful dudes in tank tops and jean shorts, eating delicious food from booths right next to the stage. SM
w/Sarah Jackson-Holman; Ecotrust, 721 NW 9th, 5:30 pm, FREE, all ages

FILMUSIK—Charlie Chaplin's 1936 comedy Modern Times is both a hilarious classic and a damning critique of industrialization! Tonight, it's paired with a new score from Retake Productions' Kyle Williams—performed live by Retake's chamber group. EH
Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy, 8 pm, $12


POP NOW!—It's time for the funnest, rootin'-tootin'est all-ages music fest in town. PDX Pop Now! makes its annual sunny appearance with more than 40 Portland bands, like Radiation City, Youthbitch, and Sons of Huns, playing their hearts out for you for three straight days. For free! This is what Portland summers are all about. Now show your love. CF
Refuge, 116 SE Yamhill, Fri 6 pm-1 am, Sat noon-1 am, Sun noon-midnight, FREE, all ages

STRING DANCE—The power of dance has been lurking inside the cello all along, just waiting for the right ensemble to unlock it. The Portland Cello Project IS THAT ENSEMBLE, and their annual Extreme Dance Party is a sweaty, delirious summer highlight. Genres collapse and musical boundaries dissolve, all for the purpose of getting your ass moving on the dance floor. AH
Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside, Fri & Sat, 9 pm, $13-16


PURRP—Miami rapper SpaceGhostPurrp turns the booty bass of his home city on its ear, offering bleak, post-apocalyptic jams that command full attention of your head (and ass) with their minimalist grind and narcotic momentum. With Sacramento hardcore punkers Trash Talk also on the bill, this definitely won't be your typical evening out. NL
w/TxE, Transient; Branx, 320 SE 2nd, 8 pm, $13-15

GREASE—Lower your standards of decorum for the Greaseball Picnic, a full day of motorcycle and hotrod showing, swapping, and airbrushing (and in the case of 50cc or less bikes, racing), plus dunk tanks, rock 'n' roll, a Ms. Greaseball "white trash pin-up girl" contest (remember: lower), and HOT DOGS. MS
Club 21, 2035 NE Glisan, 11 am-9 pm, FREE


OUT OF HIBERNATION—Finally, FINALLY Youth Lagoon is playing in Portland—thank you, god. It's been almost a year since Trevor Powers' released his textured dream-pop debut The Year of Hibernation and, after a cancelled show in January, Boise's pride will finally throw us a bone. ZP
w/Father John Misty, Ava Luna; Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell, 9 pm, $13-15, all ages

SANDY—Sand in the City is one of those annual events that sounds hokey (sand castles in Pioneer Courthouse Square!), but if you can ditch the attitude, it's actually awesome. Teams build giant sand sculptures all weekend—think buildings and adorable beavers—and then the whole impressive display is demolished Sunday. Get some ice cream and get down there! SM
Pioneer Courthouse Square, 701 SW 6th, Fri 9:30 am-8 pm, Sat 10 am-9 pm, Sun 10:30 am-2 pm, $4 ($10/family)


SEX CRIMES—Eric Berkowitz's Sex and Punishment explores the ways expressions of sexuality have been condoned or punished in different cultures throughout history. Portland's Kerry Cohen, author of Loose Girl: A Memoir of Promiscuity, joins him in conversation. AH
Powell's City of Books, 1005 W Burnside, 7:30 pm, FREE

HANGIN' TUFF—The glammy sugar-cereal blast of King Tuff's brilliant, big-muff pop has resulted in one of the year's best rock 'n' roll records. See the one true King perform all your future favorites up close and personal, and don't miss out on Milwaukee's Jaill, whose terrific new album Traps is no slouch either. NL
w/the Memories; Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside, 9 pm, $10-12


TOTALLY CLUELESS—If you're a fan of the classic 1995 flick Clueless, this is the event for you. Snap! and Holocene are presenting a screening, costume contest (dibs on "Tai"), followed by DJ Colin Jones spinning the best of '90s jams. Attend, and remember, it does not say RSVP on the Statue of Liberty. WSH
Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison, 8:30 pm, $3

PHANTASM—This Phantogram show will be oodles of pretty—from Sarah Barthel's luxurious voice, to the multimedia backdrop, to the Portlanders in their breezy sundresses. Grab an icy cocktail and dance to the chill, spacey pop of the New York band. CF
Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell, 9 pm, $16-18, all ages


FUTURE SHOCK—Everyone obnoxious is all, "We live in the future because I have an iPhone!" But c'mon: This future blows. Tonight at OMSI After Dark, learn why we don't have jetpacks, robomaids, holodecks, or anything else that's actually cool, and instead we have stupid Angry Birds. Oh, and there will also be live music! And booze! EH
w/Wild Ones, Mimicking Birds; OMSI, 1945 SE Water, 7 pm, $9-18, 21+

MUSIC—Following up their 2009 release Bitte Orca, Dirty Projectors return in support of their brand-new Swing Lo Magellan, which fans are already starting to cotton to, with signature vocal interplay between bird-voiced female members, and the fuzzy, world music-tinted navel-gazing that David Longstreth & Co. have built their house on. MS
w/Wye Oak; Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside, 9 pm, $20-22
