Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 4.10.08





.This Week's Calendar | Ongoing 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

Eugene can sell out pretty much any national hip hop or post-grunge act (Tech N9ne and 3 Doors Down, we are looking at you) and, we'd assume, folk singers. But last we checked, there were still tix available for the Ani DiFranco show this week. Huh? DiFranco's appearance in Portland sold out in a matter of days, even though Eugene is, like, Ani's West Coast homebase! Maybe it's because DiFranco's Wednesday performance at the McDonald Theatre isn't listed on her MySpace page (heck, she's got Medford's show on there). Maybe her fans have grown up and got with the Web 2.0 times. Maybe they just don't know about the show. Well, fans and new Ani-recruits alike, now you know! So go! See Wednesday Calendar.



LECTURES GALORE ON WEDNESDAY! Let's see, we've got spiels on art, quilt-making, classical Greek civilization, Latin American literature and writing, genocide, climate change and (unrelated) the impending energy crisis (this one given by Richard Heinberg, who must surely have a second home in Eugene by now). Get your butt in a lecture hall and see Wednesday Calendar.


Like Ani DiFranco, The Waifs show the dirt in their blood when they sing about the scorched desert environment of their home in Western Australia. In fact, their latest disc, Sun, Dirt, Water, pretty much explores this landscape with as much thorough folksiness as we can expect from this former Bob Dylan cover band, bringing in harmonicas, acoustic guitars, boogie pianos and two earthy sisters, Donna Simpson and Vicki Thorn. See, case you didn't know, Bob Dylan is Australian for awesomeness. See Tuesday Calendar.



One Cat! Two Cats! This weekend only! You're already set for the Cat with the Power on Saturday, so why not cozy up to Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats on Sunday afternoon? That's right, it's a one-day engagement of the show that brought a touch of feline ferocity to the stodgy Broadway musical set in the '80s through the '90s and beyond. But did you know its plot is based on Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats, penned by one of the 20th Century's most jovial of fellows, T.S. Eliot? That we did not know this fun lil' factoid has us all worked up in a hiss! We'll lick our wounds and purrrrrrchase some tix to this Hult Center catstravaganza. See Sunday Calendar.
