It's Happening Tonight!

NUNSPLOITATION—Described as "an erotic mix of sexploitation, giallo, and blasphemy," the 1974 Japanese horror flick Convent of the Sacred Beast follows a young woman who finds herself in a, shall we say, less-than-reputable convent. And since this—the only known 35mm print of this nunsploitation epic—is being screened by the Grindhouse Film Festival, you're also guaranteed a trailer reel of 35mm sexploitation previews. Bring grandma! EH
Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy, 7:30 pm, $7

—If you're feeling like you need to see more local live music, you're right—so put yourself in front of the Lower 48, whose live shows have evolved from strummy folk into fiery rock showdowns. Be sure to catch Incredible Yacht Control, the inventive and prolific band from Crosstide's Bret Vogel, who splits the difference between basement soul and new-wavey dream pop. NL
w/Glossary; Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, 9 pm, $8
