37th Annual Portland International Film Festival Opening Night

For nearly twenty years, director Hayao Miyazaki has Spirited Away audiences to a Castle in the Sky with the help of Princess Mononoke, and the adorable Ponyo. His latest trippy, manga creation, The Wind Rises, opens Portland's 37th Annual International Film Festival, along with Amma Asante's English period drama ,Belle. The party doesn't end when the credits roll: food, drink and revelry await at the Opening Night Party at the Oregon Museum of Sciene and Industry Theory Eatery. Load up for a movie-watching endurance race: over the next two weeks, the Festival will show 128 films throughout the city. Times and locations vary. See festivals.nwfilm.org for more info.

The Nowhere Band

Though the lyrics still state that it was "20 years ago today/Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play," the reality is that time has marched on and it was 50 years ago today that John, Paul, George and Ringo—better known as a little British band called The Beatles—blasted through television sets via the Ed Sullivan Show. With a bob of their mop-tops and a strum of their guitars, teenage girls went hysterical and a musical revolution began. The Nowhere Band, Portland's premiere Beatles cover band, will celebrate with a performance of early-60s classics, everything from "I Want to Hold Your Hand" through the Rubber Soul era. 7 pm. Alberta Rose Theatre. $15.

Silent Movie Mondays: The General

The thrill of a ripped ticket stub in your pocket, the hush as the lights dim, the sticky wads of stale popcorn — the movie theater-going experience is like no other. And now, thanks to Seattle's Paramount Theatre, the twangy-notes of the organ can take that experience back almost a century. See Buster Keaton's 1926 silent film, The General, like it was meant to be: on the big screen, with live-musical accompaniment. The General is the name of Keaton's character's beloved locomotive, and Keaton did real-time dangerous stunts on, in and over the train during the climactic scene filmed over yonder in Cottage Grove, Oregon. 7 pm. The Paramount Theatre. $10.

tuesday 11

Imagine Dragons

This alternative, brooding foursome recently added a tiny, golden gramaphone to its collection of guitars, drums, pianos and other music-making devices. Though probably not as hot and steamy as Beyoncé and Jay-Z's performance at this year's Grammy Awards Ceremony, this recent winner of Best Rock Performance (and loser of Record of the Year—you'll get 'em next time, fellas) brings their "Radioactive" stage show to Seattle. 7pm. Key Arena. $29.50-$49.50.
