Headout Picks

WEDNESDAY FEB. 13

MARILYN MANSON
[MUSIC] This once-ghoulish minstrel’s antiquated parlor tricks—defacing the Bible, appearing in public sans trousers and adorned in artificial bosoms—have aged as well as a decade-old can of pork griskins. Nevertheless, we can now regard his antics, once considered so frightful, with the same tittering nostalgia as those childhood picture shows that once made us wet our pantaloons. Roseland Theater, 8 NW 6th Ave., 971-230-0033. 8 pm. Sold out. All ages.


THURSDAY FEB. 14

VALENTINE’S DAY
[HOLIDAYS] Gentlemen, take heed: Even if your lady friend assures you that you’re not supposed to do anything to mark the occasion, you probably are.


SATURDAY FEB. 16

STEAMPUNK FILM FESTIVAL
[MOVIES] Tighten that corset and ready your ray gun: This steam engine is bound for the Clinton Street Theater, where the city’s finest neo-Victorian moving pictures—featuring detectives, dinosaurs and dirigibles—await. Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton St., 238-5588. Various times through Sunday, Feb. 17. $10-$17.

ZWICKELMANIA
[BEER] Alemakers across the state, including approximately 40 of our fine city’s establishments, throw open their doors and allow the public to ogle their brewpots and sample the concoctions straight from the fermentation vessels. The chaps at Rogue Public House and the Green Dragon will be serving brunch and running buses between breweries on either side of the mighty Willamette, and thus might be a fine place to begin your day’s festivities. 11 am-4pm. Free. Information at oregonbeer.org/zwickelmania.


MONDAY FEB. 18

WINGS
[MOVIES] This 1927 picture about fighter pilots in the Great War—the only silent film to win the Best Picture Oscar until 2011’s The Artist—vaulted the stoic Gary Cooper to stardom. Donna Parker will provide live organ accompaniment. Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy Blvd., 281-4215. 7:30 pm. $10.

HOME VEGETABLE GARDENING DONE RIGHT
[PLANTS] Tired of rotten parsnips and dried-up winter roots from the Italian markets on Produce Row? Don’t want to give your hard-earned money for low-quality goods brought in by a shipping vessel? At Mount Hood, experienced grower and forager Steve Schmidt will help the happy homemaker learn to tend to the fruits of her own labors in a home garden. Mt. Hood Community College, Gresham Campus, 26000 SE Stark St., Feb. 18-20, 6:30-8:30 pm. $69.
