Onstage this Weekend

This weekend, should you require more stimulation and spectacle than explosions, hot girls in cutoffs, and the mouth-watering scent of grilled meat on a summer's evening can provide—

Wait. Let me try that again.

Should you have a philosophical objection to observing the Fourth of July, insofar as it's a nakedly nationalistic celebration of American militarism that also scares all the dogs and cats, here are a couple other options for your weekend entertainment (both of which happen to promise a fair amount of spectacle themselves):

San Francisco-based company the Carpetbag Brigade presents the Portland premier of their show You Don't Know Jack, alongside a performance of Hand2Mouth's creepy fairy tale/rockstar deconstruction Undine—that's out at Milepost 5, tonight and Saturday, 8 pm, $10.

Tomorrow night, it's the first of the Wanderlust Circus' three-show series The Endless Road, a circus show that promises dancers, acrobats, and other circus-y things, plus performances by a different band DJ for each show—this week, it's the March Fourth Marching band. That's tomorrow at the Bossonova Ballroom, $17-22.

(Storm Large is taking the weekend off.)
