Had he not been shot in the back by a maniac, John Lennon would be 66 years old this month. It's no surprise the man's got a cult following in Eugene: A quarter of the populace is his spitting image (see left). Organizers for the 25th Annual John Lennon Birthday Celebration are celebrating Lennon's life with tribute bands (including The Number 9 Band, Lennonite Choir, Red Pajamas and Paul & Nancy's Love Truffle, pictured left), food, dancing and merriment. Chief organizer and No. 9 Band member Beth Miriam Rose dubs it "a bit of baby-boomer heaven." This is the final celebration — hey, make room for George, Ringo and Paul! — so break out your mementos from 1969 (or their faux-equivalents) and head on down to the WOW Hall. See Saturday Calendar.



Back when Robert Hladky was the UO's cello professor (1961 through 1993), he and his wife, Joan, always hosted a big class picnic on their Christmas tree farm near Pleasant Hill at the end of the school year. "We'd play wiffleball," Joan says, and all of the cello students would come. Oregon Symphony member Ken Finch laughs that everyone played baseball except at the farm: "He didn't want us to hurt our hands!" With the community-minded Hladky (pictured right) about to turn 80, the community wants to give back: His friend and former student Susan Rockey Bowles organized a musical tribute to him. Nine string bass players and 23 cello players, all former students, are flying in from around the country (and internationally — one's coming from England) to honor their teacher and mentor at the Robert Hladky Cello-Bration in Beall Hall. Those partying low-voiced strings plan to play some John Phillip Sousa, some Villa-Lobos and something, we're sure, funky and wild as they cavort alongside the toy tractor and stuffed horse that Bowles wants onstage. They're overtaking current cello prof Steve Pologe's office and borrowing all of his cellos, but he's looking forward to playing in the tribute to his predecessor. See Tuesday Calendar.



Eugene should consider itself lucky to be a stopping point for this weekend's Night Gallery International Film Festival at DIVA. With other stops including Arizona, Alaska and New Zealand, this traveling film festival promises both filmmaker exposure to a variety of audiences and audience exposure to a variety of films. Dramatic features roll on Friday evening, with the highlight being Drop Box, a witty parable about what happens when celebrities don't keep track of their naughty homemade videos, and Luella Miller (pictured above), a psychological thriller about a strange woman who brings a small town's darkness to maximum intensity. Attend Sunday's screenings if you're in the mood for a smile, a chortle or an outright outburst of laughter (the whole day's devoted to comedy). If you miss the festival this time around, stay tuned: Short films will be featured in part two of the event, to be held Nov. 12 and 13. Go to http://proscenia.net/download/nightgallery to download full movie synopses. See Friday Calendar.



What's your favorite art supply? Is it pipe cleaners? Sparkly markers? Big sheets of molten metal? We're willing to bet pretty much everyone loves clay. But we remember making some, er, boldly designed (or perhaps deformed) representations of Sir Gawain and his horse back when we were Arthurian legend geeks, and so we bow down to the wondrous artists of the Clayfest. Now in its eighth year, Clayfest is a weekend full of gorgeous handmade objects from local artists (a sampling pictured right), and it even hosts a supervised Clay Discovery area for kids. Get your hands in the mud all year, but this weekend shell out some moolah for locally-created ceramics! See Saturday Calendar.
