ELECTION NIGHT PARTY!
—The best party of 2008 is happening again! The Mercury Election Night Wing-a-Ding-Ding is everything you want as a concerned voter: election results on the big screen, comedy (Ian Karmel), games ("Mormon or No?"), smarty-pants analysis (City Commissioner-elect Steve Novick), music (DJ Gregarious), booze (Booze), and tons more! Oh, and it's free. WSHDoug Fir, 830 E Burnside, doors 6 pm, entertainment 7 pm, FREE, 21+
—It's easy to imagine the childlike band Tilly and the Wall as blissed-out hosts of a long-forgotten children's TV show from your youth. With their tap-dancing percussion, goofball enthusiasm, sunglass-straining costumes, and catchy dance-makers, they're a feel-good spot of sunshine in an ever-darkening autumn. CF
