Out of Town 4/10 - 4/18

Janeane Garofalo

Generation X icon, staunch feminist and self-proclaimed asexual, Janeane Garofalo is a walking, chain-smoking parody of her generation. Garofalo built her fame playing bit parts in some of the biggest films of the '90s from the Gap-managing best friend of Wynona Ryder in Reality Bites to the Goth bowling superhero in Mystery Men, but it was her observation-based standup that opened the door for her in Hollywood. Now, Garofalo is taking it back to her comedy roots. 7:30 & 9:30 p.m. Mississippi Studios. $18-$20.

friday 12-sunday 14

PDX Bender

A mini-festival with the tagline "Three Days to Live," this punk rock binge will include performances from 30 freaky alternative bands including crotchety punkers M.O.T.O, noise-rockers The Cheater Slicks and garage band staples The Cynics. L.A.-based Black Bananas exemplify the lineup with a front woman who combines the look of Janis Joplin with the spaced-out drug stare of Jim Morrison and a brain-boiling punk edge. This festival will satisfy even the most angsty punk rock soul. Star Theater. $12/day or $30 for a wristband.

Colin Hay

Former Men at Work front man comes from the Land Down Under with his refined pop-folk. Hay experienced a musical rebirth nearly 20 years after the breakup of Men at Work in 1985, when actor Zach Braff took a liking to his music and featured the guitarist in an acoustic performance in the second season of "Scrubs," and chose him as a contributor to the infamously popular Garden State Soundtrack. 8 p.m. The Neptune. $31.50.

Grey Gardens the Musical

The 1975 documentary Grey Gardens is an intimate look at the life of Edith Bouvier Beale and her adult daughter "Little Edie," the scandalous cousins of former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy. In a ridiculous, possibly tragic, story of complete social demise, the pair redefined the meaning of downward spiral in the mid-'70s when the codependent women became reclusive in their decaying East Hampton mansion. Watching the documentary feels like seeing Gatsby face down in the pool. The Tony-winning musical interpretation of the film shows us the early years of high-powered cocktail parties and then the rock bottom of the bizarre Grey Garden debacle. Allen Theatre. 2 p.m. & 8 p.m. $20-$87.
