Superstar singer Beyoncé celebrated her 38th birthday on Sept. 4. But as far as we’re concerned, she can have the entire month. Beyday: Beyoncé Tribute is a celebration of all things Bey and includes performances by a local band comprised of singer JanaeSound, Just Plain Jones, Warren McPherson and Rafeal Keilt-Freyre, along with featured guests Pihcintu Choir, Alyssa, Kaia and Tyler V. You’ll also hear from legendary Portland DJ Mosart212. Pour yourself a big glass of lemonade and head to this show. All the fun is to the left, to the left. Givenchy dresses optional.

Celtic group Còig will be coming down from Nova Scotia to perform some high-spirited, century-old tunes and original compositions.

Còig’s latest album is “Ashlar,” and it’s home to the scintillating instrumental “Mystery Groove” and the mystical “Deep Down in the River” with Rachel Davis on vocals.
