THURSDAY APRIL 4

PAUL TAYLOR DANCE COMPANY
[DANCE] Paul Taylor is one of the most lauded and influential modern American choreographers, and tonight White Bird presents three works that mix classical scores with asymmetrical movement and disparate sources of inspiration. Newmark Theatre, 1111 SW Broadway, 245-1600. 7:30 pm. $26-$64. 

KAREN RUSSELL

FRIDAY APRIL 5

MADONNA YOGA
[YOGA] Get into the groove and shake your asana with Portland instructor-DJ duo Chris Calarco and DJ Shakermaker. Material girls and enlightened yogis vogue at this all-levels class.

UNKNOWN MORTAL ORCHESTRA
[PSYCH FUNK] On UMO’s sophomore effort, II, the funky, cut-and-paste sound experiments of the Portland trio’s debut have been replaced by 7-minute stoner jams and tricky pop songs that could almost pass as late-period Beatles B-sides. Aladdin Theater, 3017 SE Milwaukie Ave., 234-9694. 9 pm. $15 advance, $17 day of show. Under 21 permitted with legal guardian.


SUNDAY APRIL 7

TWEED RIDE

ORCHESTRAL MANOEUVRES IN THE DARK
[ELECTRONIC ICONS] The English synth-pop pioneers have pulled off the rarest of coups in the music world: staging a reunion of the original lineup and producing new music that sounds as vibrant and vital as the group’s well-known work from the ’80s. Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell St., 284-8686. 8:30pm. $27 advance, $29 day of show. 21+.


TUESDAY APRIL 9

GULP
[BOOKS] Author Mary Roach talks about a smorgasbord of taboo food topics in her newest book, Gulp: Adventures in the Alimentary Canal. She promises to answer burning questions: What makes crunchy food so addicting? Why don’t terrorists hide bombs by swallowing them? And how much can you eat before you burst? Powell’s City of Books, 1005 W Burnside St., 228-4651. 7:30 pm. Free.
