Out of Town: 6/12-6/19

Mystery Box Show

Bedtime stories—emphasis on bedtime. A group of storytellers share their best tales of woe and wonder under the sheets and everywhere else things get sexy and strange. More than just a voyeuristic kiss and tell, these brave souls range from bestselling authors to sex industry professionals. Unscripted and totally true (or so they say), we're expecting a grown-up cross between The Moth and YM's "Say Anything." 7 pm, Mississippi Studios, $14-$16.

Control Top featuring Rye Rye

This weekend is Portland Pride, which means the waterfront will be bustling with rainbow-clad revelers, the streets will be filled with queens on parade and the bars will be hopping with parties. Even for the initiated, it's likely to get a bit overwhelming. In the midst of the chaos, there's a little jewel called Control Top. Held at an intimate but not overcrowded indoor/outdoor venue, this year's party features Rye Rye. The rapper—known for her collaborations with M.I.A. and Robyn—will bring her high energy, danceable beats and party-time lyrics to this popular annual event. 9 pm, White Owl Social Club, $12-$15.

NW New Works: On the Boards

Dedicated to shining a light on innovative up-and-coming artists, this Northwest-centric festival features new and in-progress works from 16 companies/individuals from Washington, Oregon and Montana. The fest wraps up this weekend with an assortment of dance, theatre and performance art including Erin Pike, who will highlight women's words in America's most-produced plays; Wayne Bund, who blends feminist theory, art criticism and pop culture as the Beyonce-inspired drag queen Feyonce; and Amy O'Neal, who uses hip-hop to make statements about art and identity. 8 pm, On the Boards, $14.

Festival Sundiata Black Arts Fest

The longest-running celebration of African American culture in the Pacific Northwest, this weekend-long event includes musical performances by rappers Wale and Magazeen (who collaborated on the track "Twerkin Cyrus"), jazz guitarist Michael Powers, and R&B singer Howard Hewett, as well as visual art from Marita Dingus and the Pacific Northwest African American Quilters, and the fast footwork of Northwest Tap Connection. High, mid and low-brow, this fest has it all. Various times, Seattle Center Campus, free.
