Can Portland's Creative Community Survive Development, Price Surge?
PUNK—The three ladies and one dude that make up Vancouver, BC's White Lung emit thunderous, galloping noise that makes hairs stand on end. Go and hear 'em blast punk loudly into all your orifices—it's just the mid-week kick you need. NL
w/Arctic Flowers; Bunk Bar, 1028 SE Water, 9 pm, $8
FILM—Go catch two promising documentaries this week: There's Koch, a well-timed look at the life and legacy of the former mayor of New York, Ed Koch. And you can still catch Alien Boy, the powerful film about James Chasse Jr. and his tragic death at the hands of the Portland police in 2006. EH
