MarchFourth is a joy-inducing force of entertainment, blending brassy funk, rock, and jazz, with a visual dazzle of acrobats, stilters and more. Their fourth studio album, Magic Number, was recorded in New Orleans, Louisiana with Producer Ben Ellman (Galactic) and Engineer/Producer Mikael "Count" Eldridge (DJ Shadow, Tycho, Galactic, Trombone Shorty) at the helm. The album is full of the captivating grooves and brassy swagger you'd expect from M4, plus a healthy dose of New Orleans magic, with guest appearances by Trombone Shorty, Stanton Moore (drums), and Matt Perrine (sousaphone). The album was fan-funded through Kickstarter. See MarchFourth live at Portland's Alberta Rose Theatre

A Chinese dissident artist publishes an account of his harrowing confinement at the hands of the government. But as the story builds, so do conflicting versions of what really happened. Was the artist really wrongfully imprisoned? Who's telling the truth ... and who's lying just to boost their own status? Ripped from today's headlines, Lin Bo's Caught breaks the theatrical mold and presents a sly philosophical puzzle that beautifully blurs the labyrinthine line between truth and fiction. Don't miss this installation of visual art (which can and should be explored throughout the lobby before the show) and live theatre at the Artists Repertory Theatre in Portland.
