The Damned, Alice Bag, Giuda
Alice Bag is known for fronting seminal Los Angeles punk band the Bags in the 1970s, but her legacy doesn’t stop there—the Chicana icon is also an author, educator, and feminist archivist. In March, Bag released her second solo album Blueprint, which blends personal and political lyrics over hook-heavy punk rock melodies. A major highlight is the equal pay anthem “77:” “I make 77 cents on the dollar/It’s not fair, and it makes me wanna holler!” CIARA DOLAN

Karma Rivera, Maarquii, Fountaine, [E]mpress
Along with bubbly, fierce and fashion-forward host Masyn Wade, tonight’s lineup of Portland hip-hop artists is one of the most enticing I’ve seen in a while. Headlined by rapper Karma Rivera, who’s known for her lively, rabble-rousing sets and house-party anthems, the lineup’s a mixed bag. There’s also the ultra-talented rapper/singer/dancer Maarquii on the bill—their music a mix of experimental hip-hop, R&B, and industrial booty-house music—and eclectic rapper/producer Fountaine, whose hyper-lit energy and innovative genre fusions will surely activate the crowd. It’s also a good opportunity to check out opener [E]mpress, another Portland hip-hop artist on the rise. JENNI MOORE

KP, Layperson, Drunken Palms, No Mutuals
Under the Black Belt Eagle Scout moniker, Katherine Paul (AKA KP) has mastered the art of delivering a searing-yet-tender blend of post-rock in both the live setting, and on her excellent 2017 album, Mother of My Children. Tonight, Paul steps out for a rare solo performance, and with proceeds going to benefit an array of great organizations, including Bikes for the World and Bikes Not Bombs, catching this stripped-down set should be at the top of your weekend to-do list.

Bead and Gem Faire
If you’re like me and have gradually grown into a sage-burning weekend witch, who believes in the powerful frequency of crystals and has even started building a modest collection of gemstones, you should probably get your ass down to the Bead and Gem Faire. There’ll be millions of beads, as well as gems, crystals, minerals, jewelry, gold and silver, and many other earthly treasures. The Gem Faire’s dealers are direct importers, wholesalers, and manufacturers, so you’ll find lower prices for glorified rocks than you do at boutiques. JENNI MOORE

Sergio Leone's The Man With No Name Trilogy
This weekend, the Hollywood Theatre is screening all three films from Spaghetti Western director Sergio Leone’s Man with No Name Trilogy: 1964’s A Fistful of Dollars, 1965’s For a Few Dollars More (the best one, in my humblest opinion), and 1966’s The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Soundtracked by the great Ennio Morricone, watch Clint Eastwood collect bounties, search for treasure, and rock a sweet-ass poncho—decades before he ever talked to a chair! CIARA DOLAN
Fri 7 pm, A Fistful of Dollars; Sat 7 pm For a Few Dollars More; Sun 6 pm The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly; Hollywood Theatre, $7-9

Siren and the Sea, Fake Fireplace, Mujahedeen
On their brand-new debut LP Borrowed Problems, Fake Fireplace employs the sort of understated pop that fans of early 2000s indie will find comforting. Songwriter Neal Wright’s hypnotic compositions follow jagged lines, though they rarely avoid the opportunity to allow a song to unfold into satisfying crescendos, as heard most emphatically on the blooming anthem “School Spirit.” It’s a far cry from the trippy electronic menageries of Wright’s other project, Wave Collector, but flanked by drummer Will Hattman (Down Gown, Months) and keyboardist Ayal Alves (Kelli Schaefer, Siren and the Sea), Fake Fireplace operates in no less engaging terrain. On songs like “Knife to Your Back,” the Portland band’s gloomy outlook is manifested by ethereal keys, primeval percussive work, and enchanting fingerpicking. Throughout Borrowed Problems (which is being released tonight), Fake Fireplace’s tendency toward melodic experimentation is critical to how great the record sounds. RYAN J. PRADO

The Chicharones, Serge Severe, Glenn Waco, ThatKidCry
In the early 2000s, Portland was engaged in what felt like a war against hip-hop. The few clubs that provided space for hip-hop shows were targeted by police, repeatedly fined, and routinely shuttered. The local scene was driven underground and chased from club to club. One of the most exciting acts in town at this time was the Chicharones, consisting of Canada-born Josh Martinez and Sleep, from long-running Northwest hip-hop crew Oldominion. The duo’s performances were light and infectious—part hip-hop, part pop, and part performance art, like early Beastie Boys. With their rapid-fire flows, close harmonies, and lyrics that bounced between social consciousness and comic absurdity, the Chicharones brought humor and fun to what was an otherwise hostile situation. Portland has since called off the war on hip-hop, and the culture has taken off in ways once unimaginable, in part because the Chicharones—and many others in the local scene—never stopped fighting for our right to party.

The Avett Brothers
It was always apparent that the Avett Brothers were going to be big. Even back when they were a little hillbilly hurricane of a band from small-town North Carolina, their combination of ultra-melodic Americana music, wild-eyed performances, aw-shucks earnestness, and sweet Southern charm couldn’t fit inside cramped clubs forever. They were too good—at songwriting, singing, entertaining, and lookin’ handsome—to not blow up. That said, who could’ve predicted that the Avett Brothers—a traditional string band with pop sensibilities and punk energy—would someday sell out (well in advance) three consecutive nights at Edgefield? That place holds thousands! And thousands multiplied by three is a whole heck of a lot of folks. Kudos to the Avett Brothers for not only fulfilling their destiny, but also exceeding it. (I hope they play “Ten Thousand Words.”) BEN SALMON

Improvisation Summit of Portland 2018
Freewheeling artistic exploration and experimentation is the name of the game at Creative Music Guild’s Improvisation Summit of Portland. For two days at Disjecta, more than 40 performers from Portland and beyond will gather and create in a variety of ways, including dance, film, and, of course, music. Portland: You live in a city where this kind of event not only happens, it thrives. You live in a place that appreciates the fringes of artistic expression. Not everyone has access to something like this. At $35 for an all-festival pass and free for folks under age 18, the Improvisation Summit of Portland is a killer deal for two days of sounds you’re not going to hear pouring out of just any old club on any given night in this town, and that’s a beautiful thing. BEN SALMON
Jul 6-7; Sat 5 pm, Sun 3 pm; Disjecta, For a complete schedule of performances, click here, $18-30

RNB, The Holy Trinity: Rihanna/Nicki/Beyonce
Tonight we will celebrate the only religion worth worshipping, the holy trinity of Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, and Beyoncé—because these three strong, independent women are truly great examples to look up to, and who create soul-lifting music with which to waggle your ass to the heavens. RnB, the Holy Trinity is a dance-heavy celebration of these three saviors, with their best hits, features, and collabs spun by DJ Ronin Roc, along with music videos, a dress-up contest, photo booth, and more.

Jamie Lee
