Out of Town 10/23-10/31 


friday 25

Samantha Bee

The longest-running "Daily Show" correspondent ever (take that Colbert!), Samantha Bee built a career by effortlessly caricaturizing and skewering unsuspecting interviewees across the political spectrum. Her most recent stunt was taunting Rep. Scott Rigell (R-VA) with chicken noises and attempting to hold her breath in a tantrum until he did want she wanted. Bee has proven an asset to the "Daily Show" since 2003 and will discuss her early career as an improv actor and other projects like her parenting blog and contributions to the Wall Street Journal. 7 pm. Lewis & Clark College. $25.

saturday 26

OK Go and March Fourth Marching Band

March Fourth is a quirky Portland favorite playing marching band jazz-fusion with vivid costumes and a stage full of impressive circus performers—stilt-walkers, acrobats and fire dancers. OK Go is best known for its low-budget, but extremely creative music videos that have the four band members performing succinct choreography with all sorts of strange twists; treadmills, packs of trained dogs and elaborate domino-effect music making. 8 pm. Portland State University's Stott Center. $10-18.

saturday 26

Rufus Wainwright

Wainwright's layered piano compositions, often accompanied by orchestral arrangements and ornate lyrics, are the material of cinematic climaxes. Filmmakers have figured that out, inserting his clear tenor as background in everything from Moulin Rouge to commercials for the Gap. A self-proclaimed hedonist, Wainwright had a wild rise to fame overcoming a crystal meth addiction, and in velvety, operatic melodies he shares it all. 8 pm. Aladdin Theater. $55.

saturday 26


Looking at CocoRosie's album art side-by-side hardly gives a cohesive impression of what the band—made up of sisters Bianca and Sierra Casady—feels or sounds like. The first two album covers both feature rainbows, one over a pristine white photo of the sisters, the next over a children's drawing of what looks like a human-centipede style zebra/unicorn orgy. 2010's Grey Oceans features the girls with strange Guy Fawkes-style face paint. The art and music are similar in one way; they are both borderline repulsive and hauntingly beautiful. With two drastically different vocal styles, one operatic and the other throaty with French inflection, the women mix electronica and experimental folk-pop. 9 pm. Wonder Ballroom. $20-23.
