SCREW LABELS—Tonight's bill is nothing but gold: Opener Busdriver is an LA-based rapper with a dizzying flow, and as for headliner Astronautalis—we could call him a "hiphop indie rocker," but who needs labels when his songs are this smart, weird, and catchy? (I mean, have you seen the video where he dresses up like a vampire and raps about the Revolutionary War? Amazing!) AH
w/Jel; Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside, 9 pm, $12

PULPY—Crooked Portland cops, drug kingpins, shady deals—this is the pulpy stuff of the new based-on-true-events Dark Horse crime comic City of Roses. Phil Stanford, author of Portland Confidential, teamed up with local artist Patric Reynolds on the extremely graphic novel, presented tonight at a history talk with all the dirty details. SM
