SANDSTORM—The agile, earthy Tuareg blues of Tinariwen have sent the sounds of the Sahara all around the globe. The group's last album, the exquisite Tassili, displayed a stripped-down, acoustic-oriented sound, but one no less rhythmic—and tonight their soulful, desert-wind tunes mesmerize a Portland crowd. NL
w/Piers Faccini; Aladdin Theater, 3017 SE Milwaukie, 8 pm, $22-23, all ages

WILD—Local author Cheryl Strayed's touching memoir about her solo hike along the Pacific Crest Trail is inspirational and harrowing as get-out. Go listen to Strayed read from Wild—hopefully she'll read the parts about dodging rattlesnakes, bears, and hillbillies, or the time she loses her hiking boots. CF
