Music to Your Ears

The Alibi's Soggy Summer Dance Jam

Bid bon voyage to summer with your pals the Alibi this Saturday, Sept. 12. We're throwing a maritime-themed dance party with ’70s and ’80s soft rock out the yin-yang. Come dressed as a salty dog, Moby Dick, Jacques Cousteau, a pirate ... any oceanic costume that allows you to swim freely and shake "yarr booty." The Universal DJs Eve, Jessica, Bea and Grey man the jams, guaranteed to have 50 percent more yachts than your average Saturday night playlist—or your money back! Doors open at Burt's Tiki Lounge (313 Gold SW, 21+, free) at 9 p.m.

The Thermals

Indie heat

In a way, The Thermals is the quintessential indie band. It’s attracted major label interest since forming in 2002, but its loyalty to the Northwest and strict DIY standards are testaments to punk rock ethics.

Dandys Rule, OK?

Live transmissions from The Dandy Warhols

The Dandy Warhols is a band of many sonic hats. As its punny moniker suggests, the Portland four-piece harkens back to '60s bohemia, where psychedelia and art-rock experimentation are updated with indie-pop.

Show and Tell

Show & Tell • Preschool For Adults • variety

Ah, the safety of childhood. For at least some of us the early years were not as fraught and demanding as the adult world. There was plenty of time to pretend, explore and grow. Contrariwise there's hardly enough time after the age of majority occurs to keep track of the adventures, much less make sure that they are wholesome, fun and embrace the sense of safety and freedom that some kids grow up on. Well, the news is that on Tuesday, Jan. 30, you can have a little bit of that childhood innocence back (but not all of it; nobody knows any 10-year-olds with tattoos and a proclivity for horrorcore and Jaegermeister, after all) by participating in Show and Tell: Preschool for Adults. It's be happening Downtown at one of our city's most comfortable and convenient nightspots, so feel free to dress down in your jammies, just like you do when headed for Walmart. JK. This awesome night of childishly fun yet seriously adult indulgences is free and begins at 8pm, Moonlight Lounge.
