MONDAY

FILM

Fist of Fury Add to a List
Set in 1910s Shanghai, Bruce Lee is at his most kickass in the fiery '72 flick Fist of Fury. The film alludes not-so-subtly to Japanese colonialism—hoping to defend his school and China's honor after his master is murdered, Lee hunts down a dojo of Japanese imperialists and shows 'em who's boss. The revenge fantasy cemented Lee's status as a cult hero and impossibly cool dude.
(Clinton Street Theater, Hosford-Abernethy)

LIVE MUSIC

Jessica Lea Mayfield with Homeschool Add to a List
Back in 2016, former Mercury editor Ciara Dolan wrote: "Jessica Lea Mayfield makes badass, spooky rock 'n' roll with dusty country twang and synthy outer-space vibes. Think Cowboys and Aliens meets Mazzy Star. Mayfield's voice grows steadily out of her lush, glittery soundscapes, almost like she's creating a whole new dimension with her sparkly pink electric guitar." She will stop by on tour with support from singer-songwriter Homeschool.
(Doug Fir Lounge, Buckman)

PERFORMANCE

Anonymous Theatre: Clue Add to a List
Inspired by the cult film and the board game, Clue: On Stage expands on the long-held notion that murder is sometimes a little bit funny (you know, as a treat). The play's premise is a perfect fit for Anonymous Theatre, an extra-mysterious company in which the cast is kept a secret (each actor rehearses one-on-one with the play's director, never learning the identities of the other cast members until opening night). Actors will mingle within the audience, delivering their first lines from their seats when the play begins. It's a real whodunnit! We think Tim Curry would approve.
(Gerding Theater at the Armory, Pearl District)

TUESDAY

LIVE MUSIC

The Head and the Heart: Every Shade of Blue Tour Add to a List
Indie folk band The Head And The Heart, who got their start busking on Seattle street corners, will dip down south for a show supporting their new album, Every Shade of Blue. Folk-rock outfit Dawes will support.
(Edgefield, Troutdale)

Marissa Nadler with Year of No Light & Eight Bells Add to a List
Marissa Nadler's journey though music is as compelling as her songs. Her earliest records showed her talent as a true balladeer, delivering tragic songs that were stripped down so her lush vocals became the centerpiece. Since then Nadler's records have become even more ambitious and layered. And 2016's Strangers might be her most accessible, although it still lurks in the shadows. MARK LORE
(Mississippi Studios, Boise)

The Regrettes Add to a List
Mercury contributor Delaney Motter wrote in 2019: "We could all learn a lesson or two from Los Angeles’ brutally honest punk band the Regrettes—lessons like it’s always better to speak your mind, music is generally better when it’s louder, and there’s no such thing as too young. The band self-released their debut EP Hey! in 2015 when singer Lydia Night was just 14 years old, and caught the attention of Warner Brothers Records." Now on tour supporting their third album, Further Joy, they will take the stage alongside alt-rock artist Alex Lahey.
(Wonder Ballroom, Eliot)

Soundwaves at the Reser - Connecting Music and Life Add to a List
This youth-focused program invites kids eight and up (along with their families) to a series of free performances from acclaimed musicians such as Pink Martini members Thomas Lauderdale and China Forbes, Bollywood music expert DJ Prashant, rising singer-songwriter Thunderstorm Artis, and skilled collective The Portland Cello Project.
(Patricia Reser Center for the Arts, Beaverton)

READINGS & TALKS

Lightship Press Poetry Showcase Add to a List
Drop by CoHo Productions for a gathering in support of Lightship Press's Kickstarter campaign, which will help the local publishers bring four poetry manuscripts to print. Poets Sam Rose Preminger, Morgan Paige, Ken Yoshikawa, Red O’Hare, Christopher Luna, and Igor Brezhnev will read their work, and musicians Ari Asteri and Nick Skaredoff will provide the evening's experimental soundtrack.
(CoHo Productions, Northwest District)

Science Pub Portland: Into The Abyss Add to a List
The ocean is big, y'all. It makes up 54% of Earth's surface, and it's largely unexplored. What the heck is down there?! We don't know, and we're guessing you don't really know, either. That's where this edition of Science Pub comes in. Microbiologist Anna-Louise Reysenbach, geologist Adam Soule, and ocean engineer Anna Michel will discuss historical milestones in submersible exploration and recent discoveries, offering insight on how subs might reach even deeper depths in the future. 
(OMSI, Central Eastside)

The Moth: StorySLAM Add to a List
The iconic storytelling competition returns, this time on a delightfully juicy theme—enemies. Participants are invited to prepare a five-minute story on anything nemesis-related—bullies or buttheads, frenemies or foes, Republicans or Imagine Dragons fans—for their chance to spill the tea in front of a live audience.
(Holocene, Buckman)

WEDNESDAY

COMEDY

Celeste Barber: Fine, Thanks. Add to a List
You might know Celeste Barber from her frank, funny celebrity photo parodies, which have attracted over 8.1 million followers to the comic's Instagram account. The Aussie "Queen of Comedy" is currently shooting the Netflix comedy series Wellmania, based on the novel Wellmania: Misadventures in the Search for Wellness—meanwhile, she'll stop by Portland, hopefully with more jokes about hot people.
(Keller Auditorium, Downtown)

LIVE MUSIC

Coheed and Cambria Add to a List
Move over Rush—Coheed and Cambria could very well be the nerdiest band on the planet. How else would you describe a progressive-rock band that writes concept albums based on a science-fiction story line? The albums are but a gateway to the "Amory Wars," tales that lead vocalist/guitarist Claudio Sanchez portrays in both comic- and full-length book form. Sanchez's distinctive high-pitched voice is a unique characteristic of Coheed and Cambria, especially when partnered with their often huge, Zeppelin-like riffs. Regardless of how much commercial success C&C attain, their die-hard fans will keep this wonderfully quirky band going as long as the story line permits. KEVIN DIERS
(Edgefield, Troutdale)

Lukas Nelson & POTR Add to a List
A few things you should know about California cowboys Lukas Nelson & POTR: Firstly, they are the regular backing band of folk-rock king Neil Young. Secondly, Lukas' father is The Ambassador to Weedville himself, Willie Nelson. And thirdly, they can be seen backing up Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in A Star Is Born. With these legends behind them, it’s safe to say this country rock quartet is the real deal.
(Roseland Theater, Old Town-Chinatown)

Music on Main Add to a List
This free outdoor summer music series is back for its 15th year with an impressive schedule of local talent, continuing this week with nostalgic funk/soul collective Outer Orbit.
(SW Main between Broadway and Park, South Park Blocks)

THURSDAY

COMEDY

Aid and Abet Comedy Add to a List
Funny folks Julia Ramos, Amanda Martin-Tully, and Alayna Becker are raisin' hell and slingin' jokes in support of abortion rights. Alongside local faves Laura Anne Whitley, Shain Brenden, Kate Murphy, and others, they'll fundraise for Mississippi Reproductive Freedom Fund at this evening of comedy for a good cause.
(Siren Theater, Old Town-Chinatown)

FILM

Pix Pâtisserie's Movies at Dusk! Add to a List
They've mastered the macaron—why not movie screenings, too? Pix Pâtisserie's summer screenings of film favorites continue this week with Saturday Night Fever. Tickets to each Thursday night show include prearranged seats, movie trivia, and all the popcorn you can eat!
(Pix Pâtisserie, Kerns)

LIVE MUSIC

700 Bliss (Moor Mother + DJ Haram) with FatherFannie Add to a List
Philadelphia-based experimental duo 700 Bliss, consisting of DJ Haram and poet/rapper Moor Mother, will support their debut full-length album, Nothing to Declare. Pitchfork recently included the album in their coveted Best New Music highlight, writing that the project marshals "twisted club sounds in a spirited counterattack on the patriarchal powers that be." Local DJ FatherFannie will get the party started.
(Holocene, Buckman)

Kid Cudi: To The Moon World Tour Add to a List
3...2...1…Blast off! Celestial rapper, producer, actor, and noted fashionista Kid Cudi will stop by Portland on his way to the moon in support of his 2020 album, Man On The Moon III, and upcoming album, Entergalactic, due this fall. Fellow rappers (and frequent collaborators) Don Toliver, Denzel Curry, and Strick will come along for the ride. 
(Veterans Memorial Coliseum, Lloyd District)

Steve Earle & The Dukes Add to a List
Legendary folk troubadour Steve Earle will play songs from his new album, Jerry Jeff, with help from his band The Dukes. The album pays tribute to one of Earle’s musical inspirations, the dearly departed outlaw country artist Jerry Jeff Walker.
(Revolution Hall, Buckman)

Sing along to classic rock anthems like "These Eyes," "American Woman," and "No Time," as performed by the current lineup of Canadian rock band The Guess Who, which still includes drummer/founding member Garry Peterson.
(ilani Casino Resort, Ridgefield)

PODCASTS

Podcast About List Add to a List
Podcast About List starts with a simple premise—three dudes read lists they find on the internet—but the results are surprisingly surreal and strangely hilarious, perfect for meme experts and the too-online. If their social media feels a little impenetrable to you, bring your Gen Z friends—they'll get it.
(Mississippi Studios, Boise)

READINGS & TALKS

Reel Science: A Journey to Antarctica Add to a List
Merging Science Pub fun with a film screening, OMSI's latest Reel Science event starts with a lecture and Q&A session with marine educator Paul North, founder of saltwater ecosystem education nonprofit Meet the Ocean, followed by a screening of 30-minute documentary Winter in Antarctica. (There are penguins in the trailer, which is a solid reason to watch anything.)

(Hollywood Theatre, Hollywood District)

LIVE MUSIC

Cake Add to a List
Widely worshipped '90s rockers Cake will bring their buoyant basslines, deadpan vocals, and unique trumpet flourishes to a sold-out crowd as part of Edgefield's Concerts on the Lawn series. Considering that they haven't released new music in over a decade, brush up on your lyrical knowledge of classics such as "Short Skirt Long Jacket," "Rock 'n' Roll Lifestyle," and  “The Distance."
(Edgefield, Troutdale)

Crash Test Dummies Add to a List
Canadian alt-rock veterans Crash Test Dummies will revisit the songs that rocketed them into stardom on the 30th anniversary of their debut album, The Ghosts That Haunt Me. They will play the album in its entirety alongside singer-songwriter Carleton Stone.
(Aladdin Theater, Brooklyn)

Five Finger Death Punch with Megadeth Add to a List
The frighteningly-named Five Finger Death Punch make Vegas-bred heavy metal in the nü-grunge style of bands like Staind and Papa Roach (you know the kind).

(RV Inn Style Resorts Amphitheater, Ridgefield)

Sávila Add to a List

(Multnomah Village, Multnomah)

FILM

Fire of Love Add to a List
Narrated by artsy auteur Miranda July, this documentary follows the fiery trajectory of French volcanologists Katia and Maurice Krafft. The married pair tracked eruptions the world over, but lost their lives while chasing their passion. (Incidentally, they also looked like they stepped out of a Wes Anderson film.) Director Sara Dosa's Fire of Love was called "blazingly lyrical" by The Los Angeles Times.

Hari Kondabolu Add to a List
Brooklyn-based comedian, writer, and podcaster Hari Kondabolu is an incisive voice in the stand-up world, deemed "one of the most exciting political comics in stand-up today" by The New York Times.

FILM

Bodies Bodies Bodies Add to a List
If you find Gen Z culture even remotely interesting, you won't wanna miss this buzzy A24 horror starring Amandla Stenberg, Rachel Sennott, and Pete Davidson with a vape. Set to a hyperpop soundtrack, the film follows a group of wealthy youngins whose hurricane party at a remote mansion turns from TikToks and astrology discussions to backstabbing and murder.
(Hollywood Theatre, Hollywood District, Monday-Thursday)

Claydream Add to a List
If you were alive in the '80s and '90s, you're almost certainly familiar with Will Vinton's work—the "Father of Claymation" was the weird, brilliant mind behind the California Raisins and Domino’s The Noid. But after decades of success, Will Vinton Studios began to decline, and it was eventually rebranded as Laika in 2005. Claydream honors the highs and lows of the studio and its industrious founder, noting the difficulties of creating art in a commerce-driven world.
(Cinema 21, Nob Hill, Monday-Thursday)

Emily the Criminal Add to a List
Emily might be a contender for "world's most relatable thief"—played by Aubrey Plaza, she takes on increasingly shady gigs after being saddled with student loan debt and a minor criminal record.

Lovers of Plaza's deadpan darkness and haters of capitalism will dig this debut feature by John Patton Ford.

Portland-via-Issaquah indie rockers Modest Mouse will play two consecutive hometown shows as a part of the summer music series PDX Live.

Australian neo-psych rockers Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever will start the night with tracks from their latest album, Endless Rooms. 
(Pioneer Courthouse Square, Downtown, Friday-Saturday)

Montavilla Jazz Festival Add to a List
It makes sense that in order to hear local jazz musicians pushing the envelope, you have to venture to the edge of the city's envelope, as the Portland Metro Arts Center hosts artists such as pianist Kerry Politzer, jazz ensemble Idit Shner & Mhondoro, saxophonist Rich Halley, genre-bending group James Powers Relativity Ensemble, and others.
(Portland Metro Arts Center, Montavilla, Friday-Sunday)

PERFORMANCE

(Providence Park, Goose Hollow, Wednesday & Saturday)

VISUAL ART

Books and Prints by Ian van Coller Add to a List
Photographer Ian van Coller conceptualizes "deep time" through visual investigations of glacial ice and "earthly archives." Collaborating with scientists, van Coller's art is a challenge; it asks that the viewer consider the vastness of past and future geologic time, imagining a potential future for humanity beyond our immediate desires. In this way, the work serves as an important exercise in selflessness and hope. Van Coller's prints and artist books, which feature his eclectic exchanges with scientists, will be on display for this exhibition, so stop by to broaden your perspectives.
(Passages Bookshop, Northeast Portland, Monday-Saturday; closing)

Every Corner is Alive Add to a List
Like most students, PNCA's Low Residency MFA in Visual Studies candidates have been through a lot over the last few years. Their exhibition series, Every Corner is Alive, considers this cultural moment of grief and uncertainty through an expansive environmental lens. Stashia Cabral, Élan Chardin, Laura Jean Foster, Amy Gibson, Ondrea Levey, Kelly Marshall, lynn ruth stephens, Devon Pardue, Jenny Wilde, and Ahuva S. Zaslavsky ponder and cultivate embodied, shared environments in a wide range of mediums. Each week, a new solo exhibition or exhibition series will be installed, so pop by throughout the summer for a fresh dose of inspiration.
(PNCA, Northwest Portland, Monday-Thursday; closing)

Lindsey Cuenca Walker: Versions Add to a List
Filipina American artist Lindsey Cuenca Walker's bright color palette and confident mark-making take center stage in Versions, a painting show that feels playful and a little mischievous.

(Stephanie Chefas Projects, Central Eastside, Thursday-Saturday; closing)

Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition Add to a List
Who needs Vatican City when you have Pioneer Place? This exhibition of reproductions from Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel ceiling will be conveniently installed inside the mall for an experience that might feel sorta like the real thing.

(If you want the full Italian experience, MOD Pizza Add to a List is around the corner.)
(Pioneer Place, Downtown, Wednesday-Sunday; closing)

On the Ledge Art Show Add to a List
Hosted by Blanchet House of Hospitality, this annual art show (on the yummy theme of "Comfort Food" this year) is also a benefit.

(Tuck Lung Gallery, Old Town-Chinatown, Friday-Saturday; closing)
