MONDAY

FILM

Cephalopod Movie Night Add to a List
Octopus, squid, cuttlefish, and nautilus squad, rise up! (We know you're out there.) For Cephalopod Movie Night's tentacled evening of programming, attendees can cephalo-brate the cephalo-sational creatures (sorry) with an evening of "cephalopod cinema classics" and discussions with squid smarties. Annie Lindgren, director of PSU's Center for Life in Extreme Environments, and Mea Songco, UO graduate student and octopus researcher, will answer all your burning cephalo-questions. (Can they explain why this squid is so cute?)
(OMSI, Central Eastside)

PERFORMANCE

Monstro Menagerie: The Snatchers Add to a List
This delightfully devious drag show lurks within the spooky realms of Star Theater, so join them for some broody, blood-suckin' fun. Presented by Dean Hunter, the creator of Oregon's longest-running goth night CHURCH OF HIVE, and hosted by "sleazy Manpyre" Bobby Lugosi, Monstro Menagerie presents a drag cast of seriously creepy creatures. But vvvait! They're taking it one step further with a nod to early 20th-century horror shows by screening Portland cult classic The Snatchers after the drag performances. The avant-garde flick follows a cult of demon-worshipping genderqueer assassins. Sick!
(Star Theater, Old Town-Chinatown)

TUESDAY

LIVE MUSIC

Fantastic Negrito Add to a List
Back in 2016, Stranger writer Andrew Hamlin wrote: "Fantastic Negrito is a man who waded through a failed record deal and then climbed out of a hospital bed after a near-fatal car crash, saying “fuck you” to the permanent physical damage and going to work growing weed. Then he started playing music again. He’s just a little bit angry. Who wouldn’t be?" Catch up with the R&B/blues star as he supports his brand new album, White Jesus Black Problems, inspired by his family's history of resilience and defiance in 1750s colonial Virginia.

COMEDY

Neil Hamburger with J.P. Incorporated Add to a List

Called "a rude commentary on stand-up comedy altogether” by The New York Times, Hamburger's act doesn't aim to please, but leaves audiences with a little taste of anti-comedy genius.
