Turn! Turn! Turn!'s 4th Birthday Party
Four years ago, Scott Derr took over the former Record Room and opened his unique vision: a bar/record-store hybrid that’s, perhaps unexpectedly, become one of the city’s most vital live music venues, regularly hosting performers of all stripes in an intimate, basement-rec-room environment. Celebrate Turn! Turn! Turn!’s fourth revolution with a night featuring psych instrumentalists Máscaras along with Arteries and Guillotine Boys. NED LANNAMANN

“Black Pearls” is one of my personal favorite tracks off Mic Capes’ debut full-length, 2016’s Concrete Dreams. Featuring a spoken word intro from Lauren Steele, and a chorus sung by Aaron O’Bryan Smith, it’s an R&B-infused ode to the magic, power and beauty of Black women. Now Capes is premiering the visual, directed by Prema DiGrazia, which will feature Black women from the Portland area. It’s free, so come and see. JENNI MOORE

The Great Satan
A devlishly ridiculous collection of VHS odds and ends from Everything is Terrible, the world-renowned purveyors of quality trash captured on video cassette. This one-night-only screening formulates the satanic panic of the early '80s into a loose narrative incorporating Dungeons & Dragons, god-fearing waterfowl, and scariest of all: sad white men. Read our review of The Great Satan.

Dent May, Moon King
Dent May always felt a little bit out of place. The well-dressed baroque-pop crooner is from Mississippi, a state that’s home to many musical styles, but best known for its muddy Delta blues. And for years, he recorded for the Paw Tracks label, home to skewed-pop weirdos like Animal Collective, Ariel Pink, and Prince Rama. May makes pop music, but he’s not so weird, choosing instead a stately aesthetic to go with his Beach Boys-indebted sound. But May is now based in Los Angeles, where his polished sound won’t stick out like a sunburned thumb. With a fresh start and a clear head, he released a new album, Across the Multiverse, last summer. It’s lush, warm, tuneful, cosmic, and funky in places, like a long, deep breath of clean air beneath a starry night sky after a thrilling evening spent with someone special. It sounds like Dent May found a spot that suits him. BEN SALMON
