It's Happening Tonight!

Posted by Alison Hallett on Tue, Jun 24, 2014 at 12:29 PM


GRINDHOUSE—Technically, the star of the 1974 blaxploitation classic Truck Turner is Isaac Hayes. But the real reason you watch it is to have your wig blown back by Nichelle Nichols (Uhura from Star Trek) as the meanest madam you've ever seen, colder than a polar bear's toenails and meaner than a rabid dog. BR
Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy, 7:30 pm, $8

MUSIC—The Great Big Fais Do Do is a Cajun, country, and honky-tonk music fest that'll get your cowboy boots a-stompin'. Organized by local roots-music figurehead Caleb Klauder, the three-day to-do kicks off tonight with a visit from exceptional Minnesota twangers the Cactus Blossoms, plus some Cajun dancehall music from Dirk Powell and the Stumptown Aces. Laissez les bon temps rouler! NL
The Spare Room, 4830 NE 42nd, Tues-Thurs 9 pm, $10
