TRASH DAY—In the pantheon of female icons, I'd say Shirley Manson ranks somewhere below Nico, Edie Sedgwick, and Karen O, but only because Garbage took a wee break in the 2000s. The band's bigger and poppier than ever with stylish ice queen Manson & Co. touring on their new album Not Your Kind of People. CF
w/Screaming Females; Roseland, 8 NW 6th, 8 pm, $30-45

TELEGRAPH AVENUE—Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Chabon (The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, Wonder Boys) is back with a new novel, Telegraph Avenue—a dizzying, funny, earnest tale of two families, one white and one black, in a downtrodden neighborhood between Oakland and Berkeley. It's great. Chabon's reading probably will be, too. EH
Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing, 3415 SW Cedar Hills, Beaverton, 7 pm, FREE

And don't miss our review of the new Chabon novel right over here—Erik says Telegraph Avenue is "remarkable in its minute-to-minute struggles with love, race, and inevitable failure."
