Powells has an employee show. At Powell's Basil Hayward Gallery, 3rd floor. 10th and W Burnside

Everett Lofts are recommended as always. It's easier for you to see them all than for me to write suggestions. Some close as early as 9PM. At the Everett Lofts 625 NW Everett. Bounded by NW Everett, Broadway, Flanders and 6th Map closing ranges from 9PM-10:30ish

PNCA is recommended to stop in. They have long time cycle shows and pop ups distributed throughout the building. PNCA 511 NW Broadway Map 6PM-9 Free

Plus. PNCA has inexplicably scheduled a book tour talk on art night by a writer living in Nahalem, Oregon who could visit and speak any time. The speaker would be Micah White. He is enmeshed with Ad Busters and co-created the idea of Occupy Wall Street. He is promoting his book The End of Protest: A New Playbook for Revolution. It proposes ever evolving creative slactivism and performance-oriented political tactics. At PNCA 511 NW Broadway Map 7PM Free

And for the plus plus, Portland's own international musician, Soriah, performs tonight. He is recently returned from Tuva, Siberia, Russia from visiting his family. He is a world renowned Tuvan throat singer and performs with Orryelle, a loop sampling violin player from Australia. Early show, really. Must end by 10 for the following show. At Lovecraft Bar 421 SE Grand. 8PM sharp - 10 $5-10
