It's Happening Tonight!

BASKETBALL—People still wince when remembering Michael Jordan coming to Portland in the early '90s, raining threes and shrugging. Jordan's long gone, but a Blazers vs. Bulls matchup still feels important. Sure, Derrick Rose is nowhere near 100 percent and the rest of the Chicago team is playing like crap, but that doesn't mean you don't step on their necks when offered. Jordan would. BR
Moda Center, 1 Center Court, 7 pm, $24-255

MUSIC—The music of Minneapolis' electro-soul-pop outfit Poliça is sexy, to be sure, but there's a hint of darkness in their infectious tunes of love and heartache—an element of mystery that's crucial for keeping things exciting in the bedroom. Opening act Marijuana Deathsquads offer something even more sinister and mind-warping. NL
Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell, 9 pm, $16-18, all ages
