Willie Nelson & Family, Alison Krauss
God bless Willie Nelson, the best goddamn thing that ever happened to this burning country. Willie’s shows on the Edgefield lawn have become one of the highlights of any Portland summer—there are few things better than relaxing outside with a beer (OR ANOTHER SUBSTANCE) and listing to one of country's truest and most righteous legends. This time around, Willie’s joined by Alison Krauss, which will make the whole thing that much better. The show's sold out, because of course it is, but I’m pretty sure Willie would approve of you begging, borrowing, or stealing to find your way in. ERIK HENRIKSEN

Down by Law
Jim Jarmusch’s 1986 cult classic is less a noir than it is a black-and-white jailhouse fantasy carried by the ingratiating performances of Tom Waits, John Lurie, and Roberto Benigni. Sure, there’s a story here (kind of) but this is quintessential Jarmusch—you’re not really here for that. You’re here to soak up the the atmosphere, the scenery, and dialogue pouring out of characters effortlessly radiating pure cool at a level only Jarmusch seems equipped to capture. BOBBY ROBERTS
