Headout Picks

THURSDAY MARCH 1

WOYZECK
[THEATER] New company Ominous Horse presents a fresh translation of an 1836 play by Georg Büchner, about a young soldier who goes insane, with original music by Ryan Sollee, frontman of the Builders and the Butchers, performed live by the cast. The Headwaters, 55 NE Farragut St., No. 9, 984-5831. 8 pm Thursdays-Saturdays, 2 pm Sundays through March 17. $10-$15. Thursdays are “pay what you will.”

FRIDAY MARCH 2

ENTER THE DRAGON
[MOVIES] Cort and Fatboy resurrect Bruce Lee at his most kickin’. Their timing is, of course, a subtle love letter to Ruth Brown and her favorite childhood dragons. Bagdad Theater, 3702 SE Hawthorne Blvd., 236-9234. 11 pm. $3. 

12TH PLANET
[MUSIC] The bass-heavy wobble of dubstep is quickly becoming impossible to ignore. One person you can thank for that is John Dadzie, known to his fans as 12th Planet. The L.A.-based producer has worked with Skrillex, Skream and Rusko, to name a few—and he’s one of the more stylish dubstep producers around. Peter’s Room, 8 NW 6th Ave., 219-9929. 9 pm. $5. 


SATURDAY MARCH 3

KILL LIST
[MOVIES] For the first 84 of its 85 minutes, Ben Wheatley’s Kill List is an effectively unnerving descent into human depravity. It’s building toward one big, empty shock but, for those 84 minutes, Kill List is the most intriguing (and most unflinchingly brutal) genre experiment from this year’s PIFF. Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy Blvd., 281-4215. Multiple showtimes. $5-$7. 

SHASHANK SUBRAMANYAM
[MUSIC] The acclaimed Indian bamboo flutist, who’s recorded 50 CDs and performed with everyone from John McLaughlin to Zakir Hussain, is accompanied by violin and percussion in the alluring music of Southern India. First Baptist Church, 909 SW 11th Ave., 523-8690. 7:30 pm. $15-$25.


SUNDAY MARCH 4

LA SERA
[MUSIC] For her solo project La Sera, Vivian Girls bassist Katy Goodman sheds the distortion and noise that cloud the Brooklyn trio’s melodies in favor of a more lush sound, driven by guitars and marked by vocal harmonies. The redheaded indie darling is soon to release her second solo album under the La Sera moniker, Sees the Lights. Her lilting vocals have the power to make even breaking up sound uplifting throughout the forthcoming album’s 10 tracks of retro-tinged pop. Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison St. 8:30 pm. $8. 21+.
