  • Felix Jaehn at Marquee Dayclub

    The German tropical house specialist began DJing when he was just 16, and now the 24-year-old is making waves with poppy, laid-back tunes like July’s “Love on Myself” featuring Calum Scott. Get in the groove when you hear it at Marquee this Sunday. August 25, 11 a.m., $20-$30. –Leslie Ventura

  • Pete Davidson at Terry Fator Theatre

    Pete Davidson is very much a comedian of his generation. Weaned on social media and steeped in the culture of overshare, there isn’t much in his life that’s off-limits, including the death of his father, who was a first responder on 9/11. Davidson makes no secret of his health struggles, both mental and physical, as well as his romantic travails. (His short-lived romance and engagement with Ariana Grande was memorialized in the singer’s hit “Thank U, Next.”)

    Davidson has been with Saturday Night Live since 2014 (the year the show turned 40) and became the first cast member born in the ’90s. By the time last season wrapped, it was clear he was onto a new kind of comedy for the venerated skit show. “Pete Davidson had become a character, and his real life was game for comedy, wrinkles and all,” Travis M. Andrews wrote in The Washington Post. See the comedian’s ongoing autobiography when he makes his debut at Aces of Comedy in the Mirage. August 25, 8 p.m., $44-$55. –Genevie Durano

  • Starover Blue at Bunkhouse Saloon

    Take in the sweeping, melancholy sounds of this experimental dream-pop outfit when the Portlanders hit Downtown with support from locals Chameleon Queen and Laabradoor. August 27, 9 p.m., $5. –Leslie Ventura
