SWOON—Pack the defibrillator, because chances are your tender little heart won't be able to stand the unrelenting charm and adorability of Veronica Falls. The UK pop quartet delivered their mighty self-titled LP last month, and it's loaded with addictive pop numbers and macabre love songs that won't leave you anytime soon. Bring a buddy, just in case your heart can't take it all. EAC
w/the Drums, Io Echo; Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside, 9 pm, $12

KLOSTERMAN—Smart, funny, and 5,000 times more knowledgeable about pop culture than you, Chuck Klosterman's cranked out great essay collections like Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs, not to mention a solid first novel, Downtown Owl. Tonight, he hits Powell's to read from his latest, The Visible Man—a novel whose cast, bewilderingly, includes an invisible man. Stop messing with my head, Klosterman. EH
Powell's City of Books, 1005 W Burnside, 7:30 pm, FREE
