DANCE MUSIC—Janelle Monáe is inarguably the coolest musician on the planet... nay, the solar system. Her crazy, unique blend of jazzed-up futuristic funk, R&B, and hiphop proves she's the heir apparent to Prince and OutKast's legacies. She's a whirling dervish of pompadour'd, tuxedoed, fast-stepping fun. Seriously, do not miss her—she's a crackling sparkplug! CF
w/Roman GianArthur; Roseland, 8 NW 6th, 8 pm, $22, all ages

READING
—We all know Cheryl Strayed is a graceful writer—she proved as much with her memoir Wild.

Tonight, local contributors Kevin Sampsell and Vanessa Veselka join her. AH
w/Brian Doyle, Michelle Mirsky; Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing, 3415 SW Cedar Hills, Beaverton, 7 pm, FREE
