It's been quite a month for reggae fans in Eugene. First Toots and the Maytals, then The Wailers, and now Damian "Junior Gong" Marley, with his brother Stephen along for the ride. The two Marleys have been bouncing back and forth between Miami's Lion's Den Studio and Marley Music Studios in Kingston, Jamaica, working on Damian's third album, his first since 2001's Grammy-winning Halfway Tree. The cross-country two-Marley tour is in support of "Welcome to Jamrock," which topped the New York reggae chart earlier this month (Damian was the first young Marley to land the number one spot, which his father occupied several times). See Wednesday Calendar.



Last year, FOOD for Lane County's signature fund-raising event, Chef's Night Out, raised more than $75,000, all of which went to efforts to eliminate hunger in our communities. The annual food and drink extravaganza fills the Hult Center's multi-story lobby with tasty samples from more than 50 of the area's best restaurants, wineries and purveyors of sweet treats. A martini bar and live music round out the list of reasons to go — well, as if great food for a great cause wasn't reason enough! See Thursday, April 28 Calendar.



It's still growing! The Last Friday Artwalk breaks its own record with 20 stops this week, from stop one (if you follow the map) at Possum Place to a last stop at Fenario Gallery. Along the way, Luminous Earth joins the parade, with handmade jewelry and live music; The Lawnmower Shop chimes in with "cutting edge art" including Jamie Burress' Despair, pictured. One of the later stops on the tour, Shady Pines, will be hosting an April Bash, a chance to meet members of Eugene's progressive community and contribute to the continuation of OSPIRG's work. See Friday Calendar.



He seems to be a little teapot: Antonio Rocha, pictured, is one of three storytellers participating in the 15th Annual Multi-Cultural Storytelling Festival at the Very Little Theatre. Rocha, an actor, mime and storyteller who studied with Marcel Marceau, will be telling Brazilian tales. Former school principal and author Batt Burns will tell Irish tales, and Vered Hankin, who The Jewish Week called "the leading storyteller of her generation," will tell Jewish tales. The family-friendly Storytelling Festival is recommended for kids ages 10 and up. See Saturday Calendar.
