If you're intrigued, but clueless, about ancient Hinduism, then Bharathanatyam is for you. This Saturday at Tamarack Wellness Center, Bharathanatyam dancers from the Natya Leela Academy in Portland will dance about Ganesh (that elephant-headed God who removes obstacles), Shiva (god of creation, destruction and dance), Sarasvati (goddess of knowledge) and Durga (goddess of empowerment, nurturing and compassion). In the dance, titled "Dhyana: From Maya to Moksha," you'll see intricate floor patterns, complexly angular hand gestures, or mudra, and disciplined, sharp eye-movements. "Our desire is to make Bharathanatyam accessible to everyone, regardless of age or cultural background," says Subashini Ganesan, prinicipal choreographer and teacher of Natya Leela Academy. "We have carefully selected music, themes and dances that explore universal themes while representing the spiritual richness and aerobic rigor of this traditional dance form." Visit www.natyaleela.comfor advance tix and see Saturday Calendar.

Sometimes we tire of the singer-songwriters, the husband-wife duos, the three-brothers trios. Sometimes what we like is a big, fat ensemble group. Many instruments, no lead singers, a sense of camaraderie and synergy. Three such acts grace Eugene's stages in various vaudeville incarnations this week, each from a different corner of the nation. Starting this Saturday, there's the 12-member Seattle carnie band Circus Contraption at the WOW Hall (see story in this issue). Then next Thursday the WOW Hall will host the Texas (by way of Austin, it's important to note) old-time string band Asylum Street Spankers (pictured), known for their blend of unorthodox choice of instruments (check out band member Wammo's full-body-armor one-piece percussion instrument for proof). Next Friday, March 28, check out the unusual pairing of the Indigo District and klezmer music when East European-via-NYC folk-punk sextet Golem brew up a high-energy mix of brass, strings, accordions and vocals yelped in the Yiddish, Ladino, English or Slavic languages. Now we just need a hip hop ensemble crew to play Eugene, like, say … Wu-Tang Clan. See Calendar.

The Wiggles are the biggest thing to hit America! These Aussie actor-musicians will knock you for a loop! On tour, they split up into two separate buses, so if there's a horrific accident, children the world over will never be without at least half of their Wiggles! Looking and acting like Captain Kirk's crazy nephews has never been so amazingly profitable: We're talking millions! Their stage show, "Pop Go The Wiggles!" promises a Barney & Friends-style romp through a children's fantasyland inhabited by Dorothy the Dinosaur, Henry the Octopus, Wags the Dog and all the Wiggly Dancers (sounds naughty, but it ain't, mate!). See Sunday Calendar.
