MONDAY

LIVE MUSIC

Wavves: 12th Anniversary of "King of the Beach" Add to a List
Former-stoner punk/Wavves frontman Nathan Williams will take a break from his current stint as a Los Angeles landlord to celebrate the twelve-year anniversary of the band's third album, King of the Beach, which is often cited as paving the way for the indie surf rock revival of the 2010s, along with artists like Best Coast, Ty Segall, and FIDLAR. Psych-pop project BOYO and shoegaze-influenced quintet Smut will come along for the ride.
(Aladdin Theater, Brooklyn)

TUESDAY

FILM

Thief in 35mm Add to a List
This special 35mm screening of Thief pays tribute to late actor James Caan, who was beloved for his depictions of rough-around-the-edges tough guys. Set to an experimental synth soundtrack by Tangerine Dream, Michael Mann's '81 neo-noir flick follows Caan as Frank, a diamond thief on the lookout for one final score before settling down. Of course, a life of crime is never that simple—Frank cozies up to the wrong crowd, leading to a sinister showdown.
(Hollywood Theatre, Hollywood District)

LIVE MUSIC

Burning Spear Add to a List
As one of the longest-standing and most influential reggae artists around, Burning Spear (AKA Winston Rodney) began making music in 1969, blending the American soul sounds that he picked up on his radio with traditional roots music from his home of Saint Ann, Jamaica. Now, more than two dozen albums and half a decade later, he’s still touring the world with political anthems like "Marcus Garvey" and "Slavery Days." 
(Roseland Theater, Old Town-Chinatown)

Devin The Dude with Big Cheeko & Willy J Peso Add to a List
I once read a piece about Devin the Dude, aka Devin Copeland, called “Your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper,” and it opens, “Devin the Dude is probably the greatest hip-hop artist you’ve never heard.” It was written in 2000, and in some ways, it still rings true. In this case, you probably don’t think you know him, but you’ve damn sure heard him. See: Dr. Dre’s “Fuck You,” De La Soul’s “Baby Phat,” Devin the Dude’s own “What a Job,” which feels like an Outkast knockoff and actually features Andre 3000 along with Snoop Dogg. Devin has a healthy funkadelic swag to his productions, lyrics that often dwell on his favorite pastime (smoking weed), and a spacey soulful flow. LEILANI POLK
(Star Theater, Old Town-Chinatown)

READINGS & TALKS

W. Kamau Bell & Kate Schatz in Conversation With Megan Rapinoe Add to a List
Olympic medalist, author, and activist Megan Rapinoe will join writers W. Kamau Bell and Kate Schatz for this conversation on Do the Work!, Bell and Schatz's new racial justice workbook. If social injustice leaves you with the frustrating question of what you can do about it all, this book is for you—it helps transform feelings of powerlessness into tangible actions rooted in knowledge of American history and social justice concepts. Plus, it's illustrated! Bell and Schatz have peppered the book with activities, quizzes, and a "Separate but Not Equal" crossword puzzle, so thinking critically might actually be fun.
(Powell's City of Books, Pearl District)

Michael Pollan has looked closely at the intersections of nature and culture for decades. His past books, including James Beard Award winner The Omnivore’s Dilemma and the critically acclaimed How to Change Your Mind, examine everything from daily food choices to psychedelic research. In This Is Your Mind on Plants, Pollan delves into the attractions and taboos surrounding three "plant drugs"—opium, caffeine, and mescaline—and considers their consciousness-shifting functions across cultures. (As it turns out, our relationships with these plants might be more foundational to our humanity than we realize.)

VISUAL ART

Mad Madder Maddalena Add to a List
Isaac Yoder's Mad Madder Maddalena blends reds, pinks, and browns in an earthy interpretation of devotional art. Centering the contentious figure of Mary Magdalene, Yoder used madder plants to create a rusty hue that was popular among textile dyers of medieval Europe. The ancient dye plant blends with glitter, screenprinted text, and Polaroid images for a push-pull between traditional and contemporary mediums, bringing new life to ancient imagery.

Kamasi Washington Add to a List
Saxophonist/producer/bandleader Kamasi Washington is one of the most renowned contemporary jazz musicians working today.

(Roseland Theater, Old Town-Chinatown)

The Roots Add to a List
Listen up kids: The Roots’ importance goes wayyyy beyond their role as house band on The Tonight Show. To witness Questlove and Black Thought lead the nine-piece band live is more than just a “good” show—it’s an eclectic, jazz-infused experience that’ll cement Black Thought as one of the most skilled, entertaining, and versatile MCs of all time. If you need further proof of Black Thought’s dominance as a lyricist, head on over to his masterful 10-minute freestyle on Hot 97 with Funk Flex. JENNI MOORE

FILM

The Shining Add to a List
All work and no play makes anyone a dull boy, so head to this outdoor screening of The Shining for a spine-chilling evening under the stars. Stanley Kubrick's slow-burn masterpiece (adapted from the Steven King psychological horror novel) owes at least some of its dramatic effect to the Pacific Northwest—it features the iconic exterior of the Timberline Lodge.

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.

Director Sara Dosa's Fire of Love was called "blazingly lyrical" by The Los Angeles Times.
(Hollywood Theatre, Hollywood District, Monday-Thursday)

Marcel the Shell with Shoes On Add to a List
"Guess what I wear as a hat? A lentil." Remember Marcel, everyone's favorite demure lil' shell from way back in 2010?

The film investigates Marcel's perplexing origins—alongside his pet lint, Alan, he's the survivor of a strange tragedy.

Forces of Nature: Ecology in Japanese Prints Add to a List
Natural imagery is a longstanding tradition within Japanese art of all forms—for centuries, artists in Japan have pondered the relationship between humans and their environment. In Forces of Nature: Ecology in Japanese Prints, Japanese artists grapple with more recent ecological disasters, including the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami and the Fukushima nuclear disaster. This series of prints, including vibrant works by pop artist Aoshima Chiho, ranges from frank depictions of everyday life to dystopic visions and dreamy abstractions.
(Portland Art Museum, South Park Blocks, Saturday-Sunday; opening)

Kelli Connell: Double Life, 20 Years Add to a List
Kelli Connell's large-scale photographs are surprisingly tricky—they appear to depict two women in a relationship, but are actually digitally manipulated images of the same model doubled. With a focus on the layered, fluid nature of selfhood, Connell's long-term photographic project Double Life, 20 Years creates believable stories pulled from everyday situations, inviting the viewer to consider their own dualities and complex inner worlds. 
(Blue Sky Gallery, Northwest Portland, Wednesday-Saturday; closing)

The Repository and The Queens of Rain Add to a List

Borne digs into the wide variety of temporal experiences we experience in this solo exhibition. The details are still under wraps, but expect a series of narrative-driven objects.
(Carnation Contemporary, Kenton, Saturday-Sunday; closing)
