Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 7.24.08

.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

If you’re active National Geographic subscribers like us, you read the last two issues wondering “What the hell is up with the piss-poor treatment of apes, chimps and monkeys in Africa?” Too many Africans crave the lean bushmeat of these primates, typically eating the adult and leaving its young chained up. In Cameroon, where In Defense of Animals—Africa is based, founder Dr. Sheri Speede rescues chimps and takes them to the Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Center for recovery and protection. Like all non-profits, IDA-Africa needs volunteers and charitable donations for its continued existence. At Cozmic Pizza on Friday, you can help out by attending the “Chocolate for Chimps” benefit event, where Speede will speak and you get to sample delicious Euphoria Chocolate and, later, hear music by The Touchy Feeliacs. See Friday Calendar.

According to the local weather wunderkind Tim “The Wolfman” Chuey, as seen on KVAL channel 13 news, this wet, blustery July weather shall pass and allow all fairweather citizens to take to the streets under a cloudless sky for the Last Friday Art Walk. While we’re pretty sure the Wolfman isn’t a summer art walker (he only comes out at night, right?), we’re certain you’ll have a good time if you decide to come out for a stroll amongst the many exciting offerings along the walk. We suggest checking out Sue “The Flame Wrangler” Hunnel’s glass jewelry (pictured) at The Art of Glass before hearing some tunes by The Dead Americans in Scobert Park. At 9 pm, ostensibly after the art walk is over, Possum Place will project a continuous outdoor slideshow of “Murals of the World,” images by Denis Shelton. See www.lastfridayartwalk.org and Friday Calendar. 

A con man enters a small Iowa town and promises to teach its children music and form a big band, ordering uniforms and instruments while fully intending to skip town with the cash. But alas! He falls for a local woman and now he’s in a pickle! The woman in turn falls for him and covers for him, but he’s soon found out. It turns out that he did teach the town of River City, Iowa, music — albeit by accident (and a dash of Broadway magic). Yep, he’s The Music Man, and the Upstart Crow Studios School of the Arts tackles this song-and-dance classic with the talents of its student pool and local actors. The leads of Helene Morse playing Marian and Chas King playing the con man Harold Hill (both pictured) hope to show you that love has its own musical score. The Music Man plays at the Crow’s Nest Theater at 855 W. 1st Ave. on Friday and then at the Wildish Theater in Springfield on Saturday and Sunday. See Calendar.
