The homegrown Web series Kitty Critic (directed by bluesman and Bollard columnist Samuel James) pairs Portland musicians with feline fans during house-concert-style performances. The stage version tonight at SPACE Gallery (538 Congress St., Portland) features acts from the series’ second season (including Max Garcia Conover, Spencer Albee, and Kenya Hall with Chas Lester), plus an award ceremony, the premiere of a new episode, and witty banter with host Jim LeJames. Starts at 8 p.m. Tix: $10 (all ages; benefits Homeless Animal Rescue Team). 828-5600. space538.org.
