THURSDAY JAN. 30

REVIVAL
[THEATER, MUSIC] Folksy band Skidmore Bluffs puts on a concert-play about a fictional musical group called the Roving Wheels of Christ. Writer-director Josh Gulotta calls Revival part church service—the performance is held in a converted church—and hopes to provoke questions about religious hypocrisy and the role of Christianity in modern America. The Little Church, 5138 NE 23rd Ave., fertilegroundpdx.org.
7 pm. $10.


FRIDAY JAN. 31

Ragnarok is based on a Norse tale of destruction and rebirth. The building, which burned down in 2006, has no ceiling, and the windows and doors have been removed. Prepare to get cold and wet. Southeast 2nd Avenue and Clay Street, heididuckler.org. 8 pm. $10-$25.

Not only does weed cure cancer and make you see the future in a bowl of queso dip, it also makes you a better athlete. 3:20 pm on Fox 12.


MONDAY FEB. 3

ACTION BRONSON
[MUSIC] On his latest mixtape, Blue Chips 2, Action Bronson goes nuts for 45 minutes, inventing some weird, weed-infused fantasy world where our hero eats oysters at the Cloisters, water-skis in Belize and debates the finer points of getting head at a Lakers game.
