Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 6.19.08





.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

You may’ve missed your chance to be a groupie for The Grateful Dead on their endless tours of the early ‘90s, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the Dead experience. Check out Bob Weir and RatDog at the Cuthbert this week and you’ll surely be immersed in the Dead heat of it all. Founding GD member and rhythm guitarist Bob Weir will play the Grateful Dead tunes that seem to have been stuck in your tape deck since before you knew what a compact disc was, along with some covers and a few original songs. The scenecast calls for heavy clouds of green smoke with light sprinkles of nonstop jam rock. Allman Brothers spinoff band Gov’t Mule opens the show. See Friday Calendar.



Sometimes the weekly Saturday Market is just too much of a time commitment for arts and craft vendors juggling work, school, kids and needy partners. So Amy Vellutini and Megan McQueen (both stay-at-home moms, bless their souls) decided to create an urban craft show for local artists who primarily hawk their wares on websites like Etsy, eBay or their own personal blogs. The idea behind the Meet Your Maker indie craft fair is to get these mostly online artists away from their craft tables and shipping materials and into a local craft scene that could nourish connections in the public sphere. Head down to Midtown Marketplace on Saturday evening to peruse the quirky onesies, baby leg warmers and coffee cup insulators and get to know local crafters like Loopd (Vellutini), Le Petite Vie (McQueen), Evil Twin Publications (Amber Gayle), local artist Marilyn Kent and over fifteen others (there will be wine tasting, too!). See www.meetyourmaker.net and Saturday Calendar.


Welcome to Bump Skool, featuring Eleven Eyes, Disco Organica (pictured) and The Essentials. It’s a lineup of local acts we often see at various Eugene clubs, dives, bars and festivals. But now we get to see them all together at the illustrious WOW Hall. (We hear people drive from Portland because they prefer the WOW experience to anything PDX has to offer.) And to add to the fun, the entire show will be broadcast live on Eugene’s independent radio station, KRVM 91.9 FM. The up-and-coming funksters of Eugene play their hearts out while you pay a sliding scale admission of $5 to $500, with proceeds benefiting KRVM, so check it now, you funk soul brother (or sister). See Saturday Calendar.
