BOAT, AQUEDUCT, SHELLEY SHORT
(Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi) Read our article on BOAT.


THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: SYMPHONY OF THE GODDESSES
(Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, 1037 SW Broadway) Few videogames have music as evocative and beautiful as Nintendo's Zelda games—so it makes sense that the Oregon Symphony is presenting the goofily named The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses, featuring 25 years' worth of Koji Kondo's haunting scores. Plus, footage from the games will be playing on a big screen, so leave your 3DS at home. ERIK HENRIKSEN


SYNTHESIS: NORA POSCH, PHAEDRUS, DUNCAN IDAHO, CENTRIKAL
(The Rose, 111 SW Ash) It's always refreshing to find an electronic record label that appreciates and boldly celebrates experimentalism on the part of its artists. Seattle's Peloton Musique seeks out the hidden layers of brilliance that can be unearthed by promoting new ways of creating and listening to music. The label's first release, which is well worth checking out, featured a who's who of Northwest electronic artists armed with a sample pack of bicycle sounds with which to compose—an interesting way to illustrate their philosophy that the sum of a community is worth more than its individual parts. From the Peloton crew—whose ranks include tonight's performers Nora Posch, Phaedrus, and Duncan Idaho—you can expect a night varied in scope and alive with all that underground electronica has to offer, from beyond the dance floor and back again.

HILLSTOMP, THE PYNNACLES, PARADISE
(Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside) You can't go wrong with a band that has a guitarist and a bucket player. Portland band Hillstomp serenades and entertains with their classic "punkabilly" twang and upbeat tunes for two nights at the Doug Fir. The hick-punk-hipsters in all of us welcome back their dance-friendly blues. ROSE FINN
