BOOKS—Elizabeth Warren, the liberal superstar and senior senator from Massachusetts, saw the financial meltdown coming before most people, but says her warnings went unheard. So she ran for office, won, and has since done her fair share to bring the country's financial swindlers to heel. It's a great story, told in her new book, A Fighting Chance. DVH
Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing, 3415 SW Cedar Hills, Beaverton, 7 pm, FREE

PUNK—Though various members have come and gone (seriously, one needs a scorecard to keep up), Black Flag still has originator/guitarist Greg Ginn thrashing away up front, and they're still punk as fuck. Machine-gun tempos slam together with anti-authoritarian lyrics to produce music that's still just as vital as when they formed in 1976. WSH
w/Cinema Cinema, the Loss; Hawthorne Theatre, 1507 SE César E. Chávez, 8 pm, $20-25, all ages
