FRIDAY DEC. 13

NATHAN BRANNON’S 30TH BIRTHDAY COMEDY BASH
[COMEDY] Nathan Brannon—certified by this very newspaper as one of Portland’s five funniest comedians—is entering a new decade of life, and he’s throwing a big ol’ standup party for himself. And for us, really. Helping Brannon celebrate the aging process are comics Shane Torres, Sean Jordan, Tim Hammer, Adam Pasi and Lance Edward. Funhouse Lounge, 2432 SE 11th Ave., 841-6734. 10 pm. Free.

MIDLAKE
[MUSIC] The Texas folkies lost their frontman midway through the recording of their new album, but don’t worry: Antiphon, featuring guitarist Eric Pulido assuming lead-vocal duties, maintains the band’s dreamy riffs, dramatic ebbs and flows, and liberal use of flute, but now with a rockier edge. Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell St., 284-8686. 8 pm. $13 advance, $15 day of show. 21+.


SATURDAY DEC. 14

ST. JOHNS WINTER BEER FEST
[BEER]  Sure, there’s the big popped cherries of Logsdon’s Cerasus. But catch this: Wil Wheaton made a beer! Wesley crushed it! According to Stone Brewing, the Farking Wheaton Woot Stout is “brewed with rye, wheat malt and pecans and partially aged in Bourbon whiskey barrels.” Plew’s Brews, 8409 N Lombard St., 283-2243. Noon-midnight. Continues Sunday, Dec. 15. $5 for a glass, $1 for taster tickets.


SUNDAY DEC. 15

A FANTASIA FANTASY
[BURLESQUE] In this send-up of the 1940 Walt Disney classic, a cryogenically frozen Walt Disney awakes to find the world isn’t what he expected. And that his trippy Fantasia, filled with topless centaurs and a mountainous demon, is now being reinterpreted by stripteasers at Dante’s. Dreams really do come true. Dante’s, 350 W Burnside St., 226-6630. 9 pm. $12-$15. 21+.

NORSK JULESANGFEST
[MUSIC] The Portland Scandinavian Chorus performs the seasonal music of the dark north with trumpet, lur, organ, Hardanger fiddle, psalmodikon quartet and bell. National costume encouraged, refreshments to follow. Gethsemane Lutheran Church, 11560 SE Market St., 256-1835. 3:15 pm. Free.


MONDAY DEC. 16

THE EL VEZ AND ROSIE FLORES MERRY MEX-MAS SHOW
[MUSIC] It’s that time of year again when a man who looks like Marc Anthony crossed with John Waters decked out in a red jumpsuit spends an entire show yowling rocked-out Christmas songs as a bunch of inflatable Navidad shit blows around the stage. Star Theater, 13 NW 6th Ave., 248-4700. 9 pm. $15. 21+.
