MUSIC
—Say what you will about Northwest breakout rap duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis: Their music is a game changer. Sure you might laugh with (and at) "Thrift Shop", while fist-pumping along with "Can't Hold Us"—but you cannot discount a pair who had a pro-gay rights ballad (the thoughtful "Same Love") playing on mainstream radio 15 times a day this summer. That's a big fucking deal. Pay your regards. WSH
Moda Center, 1 Center Court, 8 pm, $39.50-45, all ages

ARMOR—The collection of Japanese samurai armor and artifacts on display at the Portland Art Museum's Samurai! exhibit is truly staggering, with pieces dating from the 14th through 19th centuries that boast some of the most gorgeous and intricate craftsmanship you can witness up close. These are artifacts of war, but they contain grace, beauty, and immense historical and artistic value. NL
Portland Art Museum, 1219 SW Park, $17-20 (kids free), through Jan 12 (museum closed Mondays)
