MUSIC—For their third anniversary, Portland's foremost music videographers Into the Woods have assembled an impressive lineup of cutting-edge bands to accompany their night of new video premieres: Litanic Mask, WL, and two rad bands from Seattle: the addled, euphoric garage-grunge of FF and the majestically damaged sludge-pop sounds of Naomi Punk.

FILM FEST—The Portland International Film Festival kicks off today with a shmancy party and a screening of the Spanish film Blancanieves, directed by Pablo Berger—a gorgeous silent-set black and white based on the story of Snow White, but with Flamenco music and matadors. It's an elegant introduction to two of the richest weeks on Portland's calendar of cinema. MS

ART EXHIBIT—Every week in the back of the Mercury, comedian Ian Karmel delivers the hilarious, sandwich-fueled column Portland as Fuck, which digs unflinchingly into the character of this ridiculous city of ours. Now more than 25 artists are picking up the PaF mantle with the art show Portland as Fuck, presenting works inspired by Ian's column. AH
