Today The Stranger Suggests…

How DId I Get Here? (ART) Cris Bruch is the kind of artist that other artists talk about, talk to, admire, and learn from. And yet he hasn’t had much of a presence at museums locally, or even steady gallery representation. All that changes now. Lawrimore Project is doing a museum’s job by presenting a 20-year retrospective of the artist’s sculptures and installations. Oh, and while he’s being “introduced”: Pronounce his last name “brew.” (Lawrimore Project, 831 Airport Way S, 501-1231. 6—10 pm, free.) JEN GRAVES
Glass Candy (MUSIC) Portland’s Glass Candy have recently transformed themselves from an attractive glam-punk trio into a white-hot Italo disco machine. Johnny Jewel lays down spare drum beats, strutting bass, fried guitar, glittering synths, and Moroder arpeggios while drop-dead vocalist Ida No whispers and wails through druggy echoes and reverbs. Their live shows have always been satisfying mixes of spectacle and substance (or substances). Once, at Yo-Yo a Go-Go, No’s pants were falling down for the entirety of their performance.
