Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 4.26.07



.This Week's Calendar | Galleries | Music @ the Clubs

Deadline for Calendar and Art in the Galleries submissions are noon on Thursday, a week before the issue that covers your event. Send an e-mail with event, date, time, location and cost to attend to cal@eugeneweekly.com

Need we really say anything about the gorgeous diva of bluegrassfolkcountrypop? We know awesome is an overused word, but we can't deny the awe we feel for Emmylou Harris and her terrifyingly talented ways. Her vocal chops — in demand by everyone from Ryan Adams to Bright Eyes to Patty Griffin — will have you cryin', laughin' and on your feet. Is it any coincidence that "Emmylou" rhymes with "We love you"? We thought not. Get your tickets soon 'cause they're going like hotcakes! See Calendar for Thursday, May 3.



Please don't rain please don't rain please don't … OK, fine, April, we have umbrellas and rain pants. And the Last Friday Art Walk will warm us up with the usual (wine! glowy art!) and the unusual (banana bread). There's quite the party along Blair, from art by John Holdway (whose print is below) at Studio C to Josh Gagner at Infinity Mercantile and Dennis Galloway at the Art of Glass, and don't forget to hit Wandering Goat for Amanda Acker's inkworks and some of that addictive coffee. See Friday Calendar.



Out/LOUD, we knew you (all too well) when you were called Lesbopalooza and tickets had a price and we had to dress up in a skirt and beg the (then slightly homophobic) ASUO Student Senate for funding. But now? Now, we're crying tears of proud joy: You're all grown up, a several-event free queerstravaganza, starting this week with a visit from self-described "white dyke Jewish rapper from Wisconsin" God-Des and her vocal buddy She (pictured right; we're looking forward to finding out more about that "Lick It!" song), plus the Bay Area's Sistas in the Pit, PDX's Sophie Lux and our own homegrown rockers, The Ovulators. Woot! See Friday Calendar.



Cuteness. Real, true, deep cuteness. Plus nature! Plus the feel of Mother Earth love! Plus FREE! That's what we got out of looking at the film promos for this year's Children's Nature Film Festival sponsored by the city of Eugene. The promoters sent us a sort of hilarious picture of the kids enjoying last year's films, but we thought you should see the bizarrely adorable big-eyed goodness that is First Flight. And though we didn't get images in time, the amazing Archaeology Film Fest starts this week just after the DisOrient Asian American Film Fest ends. See Calendar.
