Quixotic is, oh, the standard acrobatic circus on ecstasy. You will literally be seeing double with their projection mapping, which creates eye-popping displays of color and aerial grace. Through their strings/drums mix and out-of-this-world costuming, Quixotic envelops "electronic dance music meets Cirque" for the layman. The Kansas City based group is anything but traditional; prepare to be mesmerized. 8 pm. Silva Concert Hall, Hult Center for the Performing Arts. $20-$45.

Spring Beer and Wine Festival
For the three greatest legal indulgences of our time, check out the Spring Beer and Wine Festival. (The third is chocolate, of course).

Free admission to the first 500 on Friday. 12 pm-10 pm. Oregon Convention Center. $8-$27.
