If someone comes over to our house with another "surf video" featuring music by Jack Johnson, Matt Costa or any of the other countless surf rock carbon copies, we're bound to torch our boards and turn our backs on the ocean. If such a fierce body of water keeps spawning such puny, featherlight music, it hasn't earned our respect. Donovan Frankenreiter's show at the WOW Hall, however, has a chance to clear the good ocean's name. We first heard Frankenreiter's music during the opening sequence to Snakes on a Plane (yeah, it made a lot of sense at the time; too much sense), and now that we have the opportunity to see his band play live, well, it all comes down to the conditions at the coast — and whether Natalie MacMaster has a new surf video out. See Monday Calendar.



Blue … like the sky. Where all possibilities soar. ... Cathedrals represent a place of beginnings, endings, solitude, fellowship, contemplation, knowledge and growth. Yep, that's how composer Jennifer Higdon (pictured) describes her piece blue cathedral (no, we did not make a mistake, people; she doesn't like capital letters), which opens the night for the Eugene Symphony's second performance of the season. Actually, the night brings a veritable smorgasbord of musical goodies, from Higdon's recent work to Robert Schumann's Piano Concerto in A Minor, with guest pianist Joaquín Achúcarro, and a big (really big — if you like the Russian romantics, you're in luck, and if you don't, have a plastic cup of wine at the break) finale of Tchaikovsky's Pathétique, aka Symphony No. 6. Something in the program is bound to entrance or excite darn near anyone, so soar on over to the Hult and enjoy the Symphony's excellent sound! See Thursday, Oct. 26 Calendar.



The importance of blending right brain-left brain functions is key to Sunday's 4th Annual Beaver Fever Duathlon in Philomath. First you run a 5k loop, then take your pick of a 18.3 mile road or 12 mile mountain bike course, finishing off with a second dash around the 5k loop. Another reason this race is unique: As part of your registration fee you get socks instead of the typical T-shirt. Besides socks, we'd like to recommend warm, skin-tight Lycra and a big, goofy smile. See Corvallis listings.



Oh, and there's this BIG show happening Friday night at the McDonald Theatre. Lots of bands, presenters, awards, spirits, hob-nobbing and head-nodding — all proceeds going to worthy charitable causes. So, if you love us like no other, you'll partake in Eugene Weekly's Best of Eugene Awards Show. See Friday Calendar.
