GONERS—Portland gets all atwitter when the Reverend Jesse Jackson drops in to chastise the city for its handling of police shootings, but I dare say the notoriously controversial political hiphop heroes Dead Prez will have something a lot more... how do I say... inspiring to say about the state of things. MS
w/Mic Crenshaw, Illmaculate; Berbati's Pan, 10 SW 3rd, 9 pm, $18-22, all ages

HAITIAN LITEdwidge Danticat's lecture in Portland was scheduled long before an earthquake hit Haiti, but there's no denying that the appearance of the acclaimed Haitian author (she wrote Breath, Eyes, Memory) has more resonance now—a fact Portland Arts and Lectures acknowledges tonight by donating proceeds from all single-ticket sales to Mercy Corps. AH
Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, 1037 SW Broadway, 7:30 pm, $30-100

We've got all the "inspiration" you can handle at My, What a Busy Week!
