It's Happening Tonight!

Posted by Alison Hallett on Fri, Nov 23, 2012 at 1:29 PM


HOMETOWN HYPE—Some hype about Portland isn't all it's cracked up to be—the rent, the roses, the retirement—but musicians like Laura Gibson and bands like Typhoon are worth heaps of hometown pride. Gibson's folksy voice and the quadrillion harmonic people in Typhoon are fun and engaging enough to make you get all sentimental about PDX. SM
w/Lost Lander; Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside, 9 pm, $15-17, all ages

DANCING DIGESTIF—How's the huge wad of Thanksgiving feel in that poor, distended stomach of yours? Pretty loafy, eh? How's about you boogie-oogie-oogie like you just can't boogie no more at the boogie-funk Night Moves dance night. DJs Cooky Parker, Rev. Shines, and Ohmega Watts will make your post-disco dreams come true. CF
Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison, 9 pm, $5 (FREE before 10 pm)

—Portland's favorite sketch comedy troupe—the 3rd Floor, natch—revives their much-loved 2006 show After School Girlfight! Kill! Kill! featuring such classic sketches as "Deep Inside the Valley of the Girl Whores," "Supertrain," and "It's Not Easy Being Teen." AH
Miracle Theater, 525 SE Stark, starts Fri Nov 23, Thurs-Sat 8 pm, through Dec 22, $15-17,
