WEDNESDAY MARCH 12

PEEP SHOW
[BURLESQUE] Two years ago, drag queen Artemis Chase went to live in a cabin on a hill-—literally. She left behind Peep Show, that mix of drag, choice tastelessness and out-of-town talent that met its demise when Red Cap Garage became a mall. She revives the show, with avant-garde New York drag queen Milk. The Analog Cafe, 720 SE Hawthorne Blvd., 206-7439. 8 pm Wednesday, March 12. $7. 21+.


SATURDAY MARCH 15

STEPHEN MALKMUS & THE JICKS
[MUSIC] Wig Out at Jagbags, the newest album from indie-rock’s favorite fantasy-sports nerd, finds the 47-year-old slacker icon embracing his dorkiness, singing about cinnamon, Tennyson, venison and obscure NBA players, while ditching the extended classic-rock jams of past Jicks records for hummable melodies and a lovable brand of white-boy soul. Star Theater, 13 NW 6th Ave., 345-7892. 9 pm. $24. 21+.

XRAY.FM LAUNCH PARTY
[MUSIC] Several years in the making, Portland free-form radio station KXRY is finally hitting terrestrial airwaves, and it’s celebrating with two of Portland’s best bands: local soul legend Ural Thomas and the Pain and rock-’n’-roll adventurers Old Light. Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi Ave., 288-3895.
9 pm. $15-$30 sliding scale. 21+.


SUNDAY MARCH 16

KELLS SMOKER
[BOXING] Americans and Irishmen beat the tar out of each other at an Irish pub for St. Patrick’s Day. Except this time, they’re sober. Amateur boxing bouts between the West Portland Boxing Club and the Holy Family Boxing club of Ireland. Black-ties own the tables by the ropes, but you can stand in the peanut gallery. Kells Irish Pub, 112 SW Second Ave., 227-4057, kellsirish.com. 5 pm. $20 general admission. 21+.


MONDAY MARCH 17

W. KAMAU BELL
[COMEDY] One of the sharpest voices on race and politics in comedy, Bell has had time to recover from the unjust cancellation of his TV series, Totally Biased, and he’s put together a standup tour called Oh, Everything! Expect astute, funny observations. Doug Fir Lounge, 830 E Burnside St., 231-9663. 9 pm. $23. 21+.

THE SWORD
[MUSIC] Apocryphon, the 2012 album from these Austin-based Sabbath worshippers, reveals that despite some questionable aesthetic choices—lyrics seemingly ripped from a D&D campaign, a logo that would look great airbrushed on a 1983 Club Wagon—the Sword is the real deal. Think of it as Mastodon for the Dazed & Confused set. Hawthorne Theatre, 1507 SE 39th Ave., 233-7100. 7 pm. $20. All ages.
