TEAM COCO—This weekend's Bridgetown Comedy Festival promises a can't-miss lineup of standup comedy, plus a panel featuring Conan O'Brien's writers! As Coco travels around the nation warming up for his TBS show, the writers and performers who made Late Night so great will be dishing on what it's like to work for Conan—and they might even talk about "recent events that, for legal reasons, couldn't be discussed on television." Suck on that, Leno. EH
Bagdad Theater, 3702 SE Hawthorne, 8 pm, $25, weekend pass $60 (see Feature for more info on Bridgetown Comedy Fest)
SIMPLY IRRESISTIBLE—For the launch of the new Cascade Community Radio channel, Radio23 has assembled a pretty amazing lineup. Panther's new project Ylang Ylang will perform, along with Sun Ship (members of Akron/Family and Au doing John Coltrane), and Heavy Nova, the all-star Robert Palmer cover band! NL
