The last time these pickin' and grinnin' fools (and we mean "fools" in the kindest way possible) came through town, it was a bluegrass-fueled night of fun. This time, the Charlottesville, Virginia-based band is paying us a visit on their way over to Pickathon in Portland. 9pm. $8. Silver Moon Brewing Co. 24 NW Greenwood Ave.
72-Hour Shoot Out
Hmm, what can you do with three days? If you said, "Make a movie" you're probably already a contestant in BendFilm's 72-Hour Shoot Out. This contest gives contestants only 72 hours to write, film and edit their films while competing against fellow local moviemakers. Check out this event where you can see the final products in McMenamins always-cozy theater. 6pm Thursday, Jul 30. McMenamins Old St. Francis Theater, 700 NW Bond St. $3.
You may have seen Empty Space a few times in the past month, but now is your chance to see some ESO in the "friscalating dusklight" at the Show Us Your Spokes concert series. 6:30pm. Parrilla Grill, 635 NW 14th St. $3.
