THAT VOICE—You know him as the singer of My Morning Jacket, or as one of the Monsters of Folk, or as Yim Yames... get to know the man behind that high lonesome voice, as Jim James hits the Crystal Ballroom in support of his first solo album, the majestic sounding and extravagantly titled Regions of Light and Sound of God.

w/Cold Specks; Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside, 8 pm, $25-29, all ages
FILM—There are some movies that need to be seen on the big screen. Aliens is one of them. James Cameron's sci-fi action classic is still as exhilarating, creepy, and cool as it was in 1986. Behold it all—from Sigourney Weaver's Oscar-nominated performance, to Newt's whiny whining, to Alien Queen's oozing egg sac—in 35mm! EH
Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy, see Film Times, $7
