REAL COUNTRY—I don't care if you don't like country music: the Caleb Klauder Country Band is the best live band in Portland. When this crack team of ace players lets 'er rip, the dance floor explodes in a hullabaloo of twangin', twistin', good old-fashioned American music. Don't miss the expert yodeling of opening band Petunia and the Vipers. NL

DOUBLE DARK—The Portland International Film Festival is wrapping up this week, and tonight offers a final stab at dabbling in the darker end of the PIFF pool. Snowtown is a masterful and deeply unsettling dramatization of real-life serial murders in Australia, and Great Britain's Kill List—a horror thriller about two hired killers—screens at PIFF After Dark. Sleep well! MS
