WEDNESDAY APRIL 30THEE SILVER MT. ZION MEMORIAL ORCHESTRA
[MUSIC] Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light on Everything, the latest album from this ever-evolving Godspeed You! Black Emperor spinoff, is every bit as explosive as last year’s GY!BE release—except it’s got vocals, adding an extra layer of agitation. Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi Ave., 9 pm. $15 advance, $17 day of show. 21+.
FRIDAY MAY 2LEARN TO BE LATINA
[THEATER] An aspiring Lebanese-American pop star tries to reinvent herself as a Latina bombshell while coming to terms with her sexual identity. The play has earned praise for hilariously puncturing racial and gender stereotypes—and for its bombass dance sequences. Miracle Theatre, 525 SE Stark St., 236-7253. 8 pm. $22-$26.
STANDUP AT 4TH DIMENSION
[COMEDY] If the thought of brassy, blue-collar comic Kristine Levine telling jack-shack jokes while drinking grape slushies at a booze-free sober club isn’t enough of a draw, tonight’s showcase also features standup from Nathan Brannon, JoAnn Schinderle and Andy MacDonald. 4th Dimension Sober Club, 2410 N Mississippi Ave. 9:30 pm. $5 suggested.
MONDAY MAY 5WELCOME TO DILLAVILLE
[MUSIC] For true hip-hop heads, producer James “J Dilla” Yancey is a saintly figure. Those who owe their careers to his soulful beats are still paying homage eight years after his death. That includes the headliners for this tribute show: Slimkid3 and Fatlip of the Pharcyde, and Slum Village, the Detroit group of which Yancey was once a member. Hawthorne Theatre, 1507 SE Cesar Chavez Blvd., 233-7100. 8 pm. $18 advance, $20 day of show. All ages.
THE MYSTERY OF TERROIR IN OREGON
[WINE] Oregon has many types of dirt. Some of that dirt is rich and black. Some of it is chalky and red. Some parts of Oregon are cool and damp while other parts of the state are windy or hot and very dry. Scott Burns, geology professor emeritus at Portland State University, explains how this affects our pinot. Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy Blvd., 281-4215. 7 pm. $5 donation.
TUESDAY MAY 6PANTHA DU PRINCE PRESENTS THE TRIAD
[MUSIC] German producer Hendrik Weber makes heady, starstruck electronic music that falls somewhere between minimal techno and shoegaze wonder. Tonight, he debuts new material as the Triad, with guitarist Scott Mou and drummer Bendik Hovik Kjeldsberg. Doug Fir Lounge, 830 E Burnside St., 231-9663. 9 pm. $14 advance, $16 day of show. 21+.
