Your Rival, Our First Brains, Sky Above Earth Below, We Play Quiet 
[MUSIC] All hail Portland’s young rock underground! These are the kids of Pinehurst Kids, the long-running Stumptown powerpunk outfit that’s picked up the torch of big-hearted, power chorddriven, highly caffeinated rock ’n’ roll. Your Rival has been dropping EPs and cassettes for the past few years, displaying a knack for melody and hooky, deceptively simple arrangements that are mature beyond the members’ years. (I’m not sure they’re of age yet, but there’s a quality to the music that suggests they will forever be unable to drink legally.) Our First Brains—who are releasing a new tape at this show—are less refined, but their roughly melodic guitars, unhinged drums and phlegmatically throaty vocals also convey a sense of youth in revolt that’s highly appealing, even for those of us who thought we “grew out of” basement shows years ago. MATTHEW SINGER. Laughing Horse Books, 12 NE 10th Ave., 236- 2893. 8:30 pm. $3-$5

Ursula K. Le Guin

Alessio Bax
Already the recipient of a prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant, winner of major competitions and soloist on several acclaimed recordings, the busy 35-year-old Italian pianist (now based in New York) has won critical raves for both his solo and orchestra performances, including one coming up with the Eugene Symphony. In this Portland Piano International recital, Bax per- forms one of his specialties, the music of Rachmaninoff, as well as works by another Russian composer, Modest Mussorgsky, including the original solo version of his famous Pictures at an Exhibition. Newmark Theatre, 1111 SW Broadway, 228-1388. 4 pm Sunday, Jan. 6. $14-$61.

The Body Beautiful in Ancient Greece
Last day at the museum! Although The Body Beautiful is a traveling show that originated at the British Museum in London, its Portland installment admirably cross-pollinates with Northwest artists and arts organizations. This celebration of Classical statuary, vases and other artifacts partnered with Seattle sculptor and conceptual artist John Grade (winner of the Arlene Schnitzer Prize at 2011’s Contemporary Northwest Art Awards) and Oregon Ballet Theater. The result was a moving dance performance in October entitled Ekho . Through Jan. 6. Portland Art Museum, 1219 SW Park Ave., 226-0973.
