Donald Trump certainly was not the first man to invent the ego-filled need to pursue multiple women. Shakespeare’s The Merry Wives of Windsor is the story of a plump knight, Sir John Falstaff, who attempts to seduce two uninterested married women and thereby gain access to their husbands’ wealth. However, these women have a few tricks up their sleeves to humiliate Falstaff and frustrate his greed. To kick off the start of summer, head over to the Campbell Community Center June 10 for a performance of The Merry Wives of Windsor, courtesy of Free Shakespeare in the Park. Later this summer, opening Aug. 6, Free Shakespeare in the Park presents Love's Labour's Lost. Photo is by Corrina Welding and features Julie More as Touchstone from last year's production of As You Like It

While you munch on that heart attack on a stick, you can rock out to "Rock Lobster," "Love Shack" and other staples of New Wave party band The B-52s on July 22. Photo by Joseph Cultice.

If you’re into jazz-funk and salad greens, WTF has that covered with Boston-based band Lettuce. The overall line up is a big ol’ mash up of jazz, funk, electronic and DJ sets, so if you’re in the mood to move, this festival is right up your alley.

July

Diana-FREAKING-Ross is coming to Oregon. It’s a big effing deal. Where is she now? Still being a badass legend and still making music. I Love You and Diana Ross Sings Songs From the Wiz (originally recorded in 1978 but reissued in 2015) are her two most recent album releases, and she’s taken her musical legacy — old and new — on tour all over the world the past several years. She’ll be stopping by McMenamins’ Edgefield July 1 and Jacksonville’s Britt Music and Arts Festival July 5 to give a — no doubt — stellar performance.

MusicFestNW (now apparently going by the moniker Project Pabst, lame) is back, and it’s teaming up with Pabst for a show-stopping weekend. Running Aug. 27-28 up in Portland, big names like Ice Cube, Duran Duran and Ween will take over the stage. And don’t forget to bring your Imodium, since Diarrhea Planet (they’re grunge-punk, not intestinal irritation) will also be making an appearance. Atlanta punk band The Coathangers and Philly’s equally rockin’ Sheer Mag will satisfy your fist-pumping urges, while Lizzo (Minneapolis hip hop) and STRFKR will sooth your needs to groove. Full line up at portland.projectpabst.com. Pictured: Ice Cube (left) and Diarrhea Planet (right).
