Headout Picks

THURSDAY JUNE 14

NICK KROLL
[COMEDY] On FX’s The League, the comic plays television’s most diabolical suburban genius: Rodney Ruxin, a Chicago-area lawyer who resembles, in his words, “a Nazi propaganda cartoon of a Jew,” and whose only concern—outside of keeping his disproportionately hot wife—is dominating his friends in their fantasy football league. He’s hilarious just eating crackers and jelly. Helium Comedy Club, 1510 SE 9th Ave., (888) 643-8669. 8 pm Thursday, June 14; 7:30 pm and 10 pm Friday-Saturday, June 15-16. $20-$25. 

BEER WEEK

See other listings for more details or visit pdxbeerweek.com. Various times through June 17. Prices vary. 21+.


FRIDAY JUNE 15

AIR GUITAR CHAMPIONSHIPS

QUIET MUSIC FESTIVAL
[MUSIC] Aging music fans with creeping tinnitus, rejoice! Disjecta has, for the second year, built a lineup of mostly local acts playing unamplified music in an intimate setting.

(Harold, William, Robert, Tina, David, Eds.). The exhibit spotlights five decades of Steinberg’s work in The New Yorker, including 200 of his 1,000-plus published contributions.
