 TYCHO

[MUSIC] Executing semi-danceable electronic dreamscapes live is difficult, but Tycho’s synth-laced, post-rock Miami Vice soundtrack comes with an intense psychedelic video reel courtesy of group mastermind Scott Hansen that is sure to give the druggie dance-tent kids plenty of periphery to get lost in. Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside St., 225-0047. 8 pm. $20. All ages.


FRIDAY AUG. 1

THE GREAT HORROR CAMPOUT
[SCARES] The Great Horror Campout is basically an outdoor, immersive, haunted-house experience you can’t escape until the sun comes up. Activities include a scavenger hunt, “voodoo rituals” and absolutely no sleep. So it’s kind of like regular summer camp, except with more people in rubber masks hiding behind trees. On private property in Beavercreek. 18 . greathorrorcampout.com.

 PICKATHON

[FESTIVAL] It’s not just for hula-hooping hippies anymore! This is the least “rootsy” lineup the festival has put out yet, leaning heavily on of-the-moment indie acts like Mac DeMarco and the War on Drugs, but that only makes the experience even more unique. Where else can you see a band called Diarrhea Planet headline a barn? Pendarvis Farm, 16581 SE Hagen Road, Happy Valley. See pickathon.com for schedule and ticket information. All ages. Through Aug. 3.


SATURDAY AUG. 2

THE THREE SISTERS
[THEATER] Portland Experimental Theatre Ensemble, responsible for some of the most adventurous work in town, presents a new translation of Chekhov’s play about three upper-class sisters despairing at life in late 19th-century Moscow. Translator and director Stepan Simek has staged the drama as an intimate birthday party for sister Irina, with audience members—just 45 each night—serving almost as guests. Reed College Performing Arts Building, 3203 SE Woodstock Blvd., 555-1212. 7:30 pm. $15-$50. Through Aug. 17.


MONDAY AUG. 4

 

DRONES, BIG DATA AND THE NEXT AGRICULTURAL REVOLUTION
[SCIENCE] Learn about drone technology and its expanding use in agriculture from the CEO of HoneyComb Corporation, which specializes in drone technology for agriculture. Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy Blvd., 281-4215. 7 pm. $5 suggested.


HAMILTON LEITHAUSER
[MUSIC] The Walkmen are dead, but their frontman is still with us, and his solo debut, Black Hours, will hardly make fans miss the band—not with his distinctive, Dylan-gone-hoarse wheeze still intact. Doug Fir Lounge, 830 E Burnside St., 231-9663. 9 pm. $16 advance, $18 day of show. 21 .
