It's Happening Tonight!

Posted by Alison Hallett on Wed, Apr 23, 2014 at 2:59 PM


COMEDY—If you only remember Norm Macdonald from his time behind SNL's Weekend Update desk, you're missing out on one of the best stand-up comics around—combining a pitch-black cynicism with surreal, earnest goofiness, Macdonald's both scary smart and one of the funniest guys on the planet. Don't miss seeing him live. EH
Helium Comedy Club, 1510 SE 9th, Wed-Thurs 8 pm, Fri-Sat 7:30 & 10 pm, $30-37

MUSIC—Two parts good time, one part activism, tonight is Party Damage Records' answer to recent crackdowns on Portland hiphop performances. Described by label co-founder Casey Jarman as "experiment in intentionally jarring sound-mashing" the show's got Portland hiphop standouts interspersed with local pop enthusiasts. The message is simple, Portland: Stand with your local music scene. The whole thing. DVH
w/the Resistance, Cataldo, Serge Severe, St. Even; Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison, 8 pm, $6-10
