There are two things that Collie Buddz fans can agree on: reggae/hip-hop combinations and I-502. See the man himself in concert tonight at the Knitting Factory with New Kingston, Los Rakas and the Holdup. (All-ages)

Also tonight:

Jones Radiator, Elan Toby, the Garlands (21)

Washington State University, ASAP Rocky, Schoolboy Q, Danny Brown (All-ages)


For the record, hipsters: Do not complain about great bands not coming here. Rabbits, an awesome and totally brutal scream metal band from Portland, brings its skin-peeling, nail-curling sound to the Baby Bar this weekend with locals Belt of Vapor and PDX bands Drunk Dad and the Ax. Rabbits, signed to Relapse Records, is touring on its latest record, Bites Rites. In the tiny Baby Bar, you're going to require earplugs — or at least some toilet paper stuffed in your earholes. (21)

Also Saturday:

A Club, End of the World Party 3 feat. Wildcard, Koshir, Swindle, Overtime, Knothead (see our story on Knothead here), Tyler Denbeigh, Concept (All-ages)

Carr's Corner, Bullets or Balloons, Space Movies (21)

Mootsy's, Hillfolk Noir, Wolves in the Woods, BBBBandits (21)


Wielding the power of the synthesizer, STRFKR’s offers an array of finely-crafted dance beats that have given them a reputation for performing high energy shows. The Portland based band, led by frontman Josh Hodges, combined the philosophy of Brit thinker Alan Watts with up-tempo rave music on their recent album Reptilians. The resulting mix features compelling lyrics that put an original, spirit-lifting spin on the concepts of life and death that make audiences feel the need to shake a leg. These guys are also music festival vets, so they know how to put on a light show and ham it up for a hip crowd. Essentially, their beats are dope. They play the A Club at 7 pm. (All-ages)
