Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 8.14.08

.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

To be a “monster of accordion,” one must submit to the almighty god of squeezeboxes. Um, for sake of argument, let’s call the god Steve Urkel. Notable accordionists who have submitted to this god include Billy Joel, Pete Townsend, Eddie Vedder, Lemony Snicket and Lawrence Welk. Add Jason Webley to that lustrous list and you have the seed for the West Coast tour of the Monsters of Accordion. Splash-landing at WOW Hall and featuring Webley (pictured), Mark Growden, Amy Denio, Duckmandu and a variety of choice local accordion monsters (Eugene’s bill taps the Bad Mitten Orchestre’s Naima Muntal, along with her gaggle of goofy, beer-swillin’ gals), the MofA tour promises to bring the “most feared instrument” into the light, as played by some of its “most notorious” practicioners. With the rise in popularity of the squeezebox in mainstream acts like the Arcade Fire and The Decemberists, ringleader Webley says that he “can foresee a day when playing the electric guitar will be a laughable thing, and people will be embarrassed to admit they ever took guitar lessons as kids.” Let’s not get all cocky, now, Mr. Webley. We hear the dulcimer and some odd gizmo called a laptop are also rising in the ranks of must-have musical instruments. Monsters are meant to be destroyed, y’know. See Wednesday Calendar.

The title of best summer music festival should definitely be awarded to Cottage Grove’s first annual Jug-R-Not Music Festival. Sure, Off the Grid Music Fest has a feel-good, green-is-for-go vibe, but how can you compete against a jug juggernaut, especially one situated in the idyllic setting on the corner of 7th and Main in a newly renovated park? The answer is: You can’t! And this festival, running from 3 pm til late, and organized by the bookers at the Axe and Fiddle Pub, features some solid acts. Things kicks off with the acoustic rock of Anticipate Pie, push on to the swing-jazz of Flat Stanley, continue with country-bluesman Rollie Tussing and jug along all the way to the night’s last act, blues-rockers Jeezum Crow (pictured). Wait, did we hear of a newly renovated park in a downtown? That’s a great idea, CG! See Saturday Calendar.

When we put Lisa Williams’ appearance at the Hult Center on Wednesday under the category of “Spiritual,” we mean that literally. When Williams was a little girl in England, she discovered she had a gift — a gift to communicate with the dead or immaterial. For Williams, spirits are for talkin’ with, not for drinkin’. On her TV show, Lisa Williams: Life Among the Dead, which airs on the Lifetime network, a camera crew follows her around while she pursues spirit-seeking activities (generally not involving seedy dive bars … unless they’re haunted) and tries to connect people with their dearly departed. Williams is also a certified Reiki and crystal healer, and you can sign up for her free weekly distant healing session at www.lisawilliamsmedium.com If you wish to see her in the flesh, see Wednesday Calendar.
