Weird Al Yankovic

7 pm., Thursday July 18 | Sold out.
Oregon Zoo
4001 SW Canyon Road
 
[DARE TO BE STUPID] Weird Al is not only still going, he’s getting better. Early chestnuts like “I Love Rocky Road” sound cute and formative when stacked up against production numbers on 2011’s Alpocalypse. “Stop Forwarding That Crap to Me," his pastiche of Jim “Total Eclipse of the Heart” Steinman-style power ballads, is the final word on junk email, and further proof that Al is staying white and nerdy and in step with the times. “Craigslist,” from the same album, sends the Doors out to garage sales, and “Whatever You Like” finds a way to be both hilarious and far more romantic than T.I.’s original. If you still hate Weird Al, have fun kicking those puppies. I’ll be at the zoo.
