MUSIC—Notoriously footloose Cass McCombs is coming to rest in Portland for a spell, touring in support of his most recent release, Big Wheel and Others.

MUSIC—Few live shows are as goofy, loud, theatrical, and straight-up fun as those from Of Montreal, who're swinging through town to show off their latest, Lousy with Sylvianbriar. Tonight you can expect to have your ears and your eyes exploded; tomorrow, you can expect to be sore from dancing. EH
Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell, 8:30 pm, $15-17, all ages
