COMEDY—Todd Glass is known for his crowd work and stinging, off-the-cuff stand-up—so what happens when he writes something down? His new book, The Todd Glass Situation, describes coming out as a 48-year-old comedian; he's in town both to read at Powell's and to perform stand-up at Helium all weekend long. AH

MOVIE ON A ROOF—Every summer, the NW Film Center screens movies on the roof of the Hotel deLuxe parking garage, and 2014's Top Down: Rooftop Cinema series kicks off tonight with Hitchcock's terrific Notorious, the 1946 spy thriller/romance starring a perfectly paired Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant. St. Even will be there too, playing smart, unorthodox folk as the sun goes down. NL
