PLAZM 20TH ANNIVERSARY PARTY AND MAGAZINE RELEASE: STRENGTH, ATOLE, WOOLLY MAMMOTH COMES TO DINNER, DR. AMAZON, DJ YETI, MIRACLES CLUB

(Disjecta, 8371 N Interstate) Hey, Plazm, it's your 20th birthday! It's your 30th magazine issue! I want to watch music, art, and performance, with you, Plazm! With acts like Strength, Atole, and Woolly Mammoth Comes to Dinner, it's gonna be a fun party and Plazm, baby, you deserve it. SUZETTE SMITH

(Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside) See our article on Obits.


AIMEE MANN, THE WEEPIES

(Oregon Zoo, 4001 SW Canyon) Much like a clown with two broken arms, there is incredible tragedy and humor in the work of Aimee Mann. The carrying voice of 'Til Tuesday and current solo artist, Mann pals around with comedians (here is the obligatory mention of her Portlandia appearance), poets (she was just part of the White House's Poetry Night), and all sorts of musicians (she recently shared a stage with Herbie Hancock and Chaka Khan), giving her a wide array of influences to pick and choose from. Currently writing both a musical and solo album number eight, Mann will put away the pen to serenade the well-behaved crowd strewn across the zoo's lawn. EZRA ACE CARAEFF
