THURSDAY MARCH 20SANTO AND BLUE DEMON AGAINST THE MONSTERS
[MOVIES] Two of Mexico’s finest pro wrestlers team up to take out a squad of bloodthirsty beasties, including a vampire, a wolfman and a Frankenstein, in a 1969 film overlooked for an Oscar due to a clerical error. Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy Blvd., 281-4215. $8. 7 pm.
FRIDAY MARCH 21BETH STELLING
[COMEDY] Stelling, a Midwestern-born comic with a flair for dry jokes about tilted uteruses and her stepmother’s drinking habits, is a woman to watch. Catch her live as part of Sean Jordan and Shane Torres’ reliably great Funny Over Everything showcase, which also features a few local openers. Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy Blvd., 281-4215. 9:30 pm. $10.
SHERRY AND TEA TASTING
[BOOZE] A tasting of a six Emilio Lustau sherries, from dry to the nearly criminal raisiny sweetness of Lustau’s cream sherry. The bar will also offer a $12 sherry and tapas pairing, featuring boquerones, sherry-garlic mushrooms and housemade chocolate alongside appropriate libations. Bar Vivant, 2225 E Burnside St., 971-271-7166. 2 pm-2 am, 7-8 pm complimentary tasting. $12 sherry and tapas pairings.
SUNDAY MARCH 23LINDA PERHACS
[MUSIC] Parallelograms, the psych-folk singer’s obscure 1970 debut, was a trippy, elliptical spin through high-hippie-era Topanga Canyon. Its Internet-age rediscovery has led to Perhacs’ follow-up album, The Sound of All Natural Things, which, though less anarchically arranged than its predecessor, finds the dental hygienist by day’s soprano well-preserved. The Old Church, 1422 SW 11th Ave., 222-2031. 8:30 pm. $17. All ages.
MONDAY MARCH 24THE KISS
[THEATER] Back in January, Academy Award-winning animator Will Vinton launched a campaign to raise $85,000 to fund a musical riff on The Frog Prince. He hoped to take it to Broadway. The campaign flopped, but he’s plowing ahead with a workshop production. Lakewood Center for the Arts, 368 S State St., Lake Oswego, 635-3901. 7:30 pm. $30-$125.
[MUSIC] Anyone expecting Transgender Dysphoria Blues, the first Against Me album since leader Tom Gabel transitioned into Laura Jane Grace, to be a weepy plea for acceptance hadn’t heard the band’s other records. Instead, it is a punk-rock pipe bomb exploded in the face of intolerance. It’s the band’s angriest, darkest record yet, and quite possibly its best. Hawthorne Theatre, 1507 SE 39th Ave., 233-7100. 7 pm. $18 advance, $20 day of show. All ages.
