ISLAND TIME—Salt air and volcanic sulfur permeates Shearwater's island-inspired release The Golden Archipelago. Their aired-out, vaulted sound, peppered with moments of electric intensity, will turn the Doug Fir into a sonic island all its own. PAC
w/Wye Oak, the Hospital Ships; Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside, 9 pm, $10-12

SADFACE—Next time you're whining on Facebook about how hard life is, just be happy you're not a character in a Willy Vlautin novel. The Richmond Fontaine frontman's latest aw-shucks/oh-fuck tale, Lean on Pete, follows a 15-year-old boy whose only friend is a horse. It does not talk. JV
Powell's City of Books, 1005 W Burnside, 7:30 pm, FREE

I'll be your friend, Willy Vlautin. If you need a friend. A friend that talks. I mean... Oh, god. My, What a Busy Week!
