THE END—I suppose all good things must end, but that doesn't mean we have to like it. After nearly a decade of jawing away about movies, videogames, politics, and poop, beloved Portland podcasters cortandfatboy are calling it a day. Help Cort Webber and Bobby "Fatboy" Roberts (who's also our calendar editor) celebrate their last show. Sigh. CF
w/Mike Russell, Courtenay Hameister, & more; Bagdad Theater, 3702 SE Hawthorne, 9 pm, $6, 21+
LOOK SHARP—The minimal, haunting R&B of How to Dress Well (the alter ego of Tom Krell) is delicately, icily beautiful, with glowing crystals of sound forming to make tragic love songs. New York duo Beacon opens, and they're no strangers to melancholy, offering subdued electronica that pulses and shivers. NL
w/Hustle and Drone; Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside, 9 pm, $12
