This Weekend!

FRIDAY

I haven’t made it to the Twilight Bar and Cafe in quite a while, but TheTenFiveSixty sounds beautiful. w/ Ellis Pink, Ike Fonseca. 1420 SE Powell * 9 pm * $5

There is voice, and there is vision. Most singers seem so focused on tone and pitch, their words are unintelligible. Keegan Heron sounds more like a storyteller, and he’s got my attention. Jade Lounge, 2342 SE Ankeny * 9 pm? * free?

SATURDAY

The Bridgetown Comedy Festival cranks up this weekend, moving from upper Hawthorne down to Lower Burnside. The festival has trimmed the number of comics from about 200 down to 130, with more of a focus on up-and-coming artists. Various venues * May 7 – 10 * $99 weekend pass

The Clinton Street Stomp features “acoustic performances from some of Portland’s hottest roots acts.” w/ The High Water Jazz Band (20s-40s hot jazz & blues), Zach Bryson (hillbilly yodeling and pre-war blues), The Moonshine (5-piece Cascadian string band), Trashcan Joe (new old-time jazz featuring homemade instruments), The Coupe Duet (early americana). Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton * 7 pm – 10 pm * $10 * all ages
