New York Night Train's Soul Clap and Dance Off, w/ DJ Jonathan Toubin
Legendary DJ Jonathan Toubin returns to Portland with his New York Night Train dance party, playing irresistibly danceable classic soul—and there’s the infamous Dance Off competition, featuring an all-star, all-local panel of judges. Toubin was in a freak accident in Portland in 2011 when a cab crashed into his room at the Jupiter Hotel, but he doesn’t hold it against us, so let’s make sure we all get out and show him the love.

A$AP Ferg, IDK, Buddy
A$AP Ferg—quality rapper, trap lord, and coolest member of A$AP Mob—is back to make up the Portland show he postponed in March. With him are opening acts IDK and Buddy. IDK who IDK is, but Buddy is fresh. He grew up in Compton, starring in musicals and attending a performing arts high school before he was discovered by Pharrell Williams, who it turns out is a well-connected guy in the music industry. Which is why Buddy’s 2014 mixtape Idle Time included guest appearances by Kendrick Lamar, Miley Cyrus, and Freddie Gibbs, among others, and the first single (“Hey Up There”) from his forthcoming debut—Harlan & Alondra, out July 20—features Ty Dollar $ign. More importantly, Buddy is a skilled rapper with a taste for left-of-center beats, old soul, and summer jams. BEN SALMON

Babehoven, 90s Television, Joypress
As you may or may not know, Good Cheer Records is one of the best labels in Portland, at least if you’re into indie pop and rock. They’ve put out some of the city’s best albums in recent years, thanks to a strong roster of artists that includes Turtlenecked, Little Star, Floating Room, and Cool American. Now you can add another name to that list: Babehoven, a local trio made up of singer/songwriter/guitarist Maya Bon, bassist Skyler Pia, and drummer Elias Williamson. The only evidence of their music-making online currently is a five-song EP called Sleep, which proves Babehoven is particularly skilled at gentle, tunefully sad lo-fi pop songs. And there’s more where that come from—Good Cheer recently announced they’ll be releasing more Babehoven music later this year. BEN SALMON

Lez Stand Up: Summer Love—Ashley Padron, Wendy Weiss, Marita DeLeon, Kirsten Kuppenbender, Bob Wolf, Laura Anne Whitley
You know that feeling you get when you come home, ditch your binding patriarchal garments for a loosely draped caftan, take a long sip from a goblet flowing with the tears of anti-abortion politicians, and decide over coven group text which powerful man to topple next, all while you watch Samantha Bee and slide into the 20 pillows you keep on your bed at all times? That’s what Lez Stand Up shows are like. Bless. MEGAN BURBANK
