THURSDAY
Last Thursday Art Walk on Alberta Street.
Come for the funky local art, stay for the cavalcade of stinky freaks and potential for spontaneous nudity.

FRIDAY
Obama vs. McCain in a no-holds-barred steel cage match of rhetoric. (Or, put another way: the first Presidential debate on CNN.)
Event Info


SATURDAY
My Morning Jacket at Edgefield. Calexico at the Crystal Ballroom. Why God, why do you schedule awesome concerts on the same night? It’s like choosing between magical unicorns.
Event Info

SUNDAY
Portland Opera’s new season opens with the tragic La Traviata, the story of an unlucky courtesan who discovers that true love is beyond her reach. It sounds like an Lifetime movie, but with more bodices and arias.
