(White Owl Social Club, 1305 SE 8th) Relax in the afternoon sun. Wear something snazzy. Then prepare to get day drunk on the White Owl's bitchin' patio for this summer's kickoff of the Do-Over. The event promises oodles of boozy dancing by partymasters Haycock, Strong, Blacc, and more pretty people than you can shake a swizzle stick at. COURTNEY FERGUSON
MYKKI BLANCO, BEYONDADOUBT, ISAIAH ALLURE ESQUIRE, NATHAN DETROIT
(Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison) Performance artist and poet Michael Quattlebaum's female rapper alter ego Mykki Blanco makes the kind of flexin', fashion-forward, club-ready rap tunes that tons of Top-40 types are currently biting. And while he currently goes in over whomping electronic beats by the likes of big-name producers Brenmar, Flosstradamus, Supreme Cuts, and Sinden, Blanco's first EP, Mykki Blanco and the Mutant Angels, manages to tastefully blend elements of industrial, punk, and hardcore. Blanco pulls off all of these styles so well that it's no wonder he takes offense at being simply tagged as a "gay rapper"—the music stands on its own merit. MIKE RAMOS
