MY TWO BRAINS—Tonight's fun-tastic concert requires a "two-brain" approach: Use Brain #1 (smart brain) to enjoy the intelligent soulful pop of the wildly underrated Robyn, and use Brain #2 (dumb brain) to enjoy the hilariously simplistic but undeniably hooky songs of professional fun gal Katy Perry. WSH

NEW DIGS—The eighth incarnation of PDX Pop Now! turns up at a brand-new location. It's still in the Southeast industrial neighborhood, and it's still all local, all ages, and all FREE, so don't miss Portland's best summertime party with 44 rad local bands. SS
