Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 10.02.08

.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

This week’s First Friday ArtWalk begins at the Mayor’s Art Show, ends at the Salon des Refusés and is led by former S.L.U.G. queen Bananita Sluginsky. If you haven’t yet sampled Eugene’s both tasteful and tasteless arts and culture scene, now is definitely your chance. At Jacobs Gallery at the Hult Center, the Viewers’ Choice award at the Mayor’s Art Show will be presented before the tour hops across the street to see work by Jacobs Gallery Director Beverly Soasey. Stop #3 dwells for a bit on JS Bird’s mixed media paintings (detail pictured) at La Follette Gallery then jets across three blocks to DIVA, which offers a sneak peek at artists who will be opening their studios to visitors Oct. 18-26. Lastly, the slug crawl ends at New Zone Gallery for the Salon (where viewers can award ribbons at $5 a pop to the work they like). See Friday Calendar.

This is a very, very, very rare week for Eugene’s concert scene. There are literally too many options to choose from. And if you are a fan of hip hop, you’re especially in luck. Well, quit your drooling and get a game plan ‘cause the odds of a sold-out show putting a damper on your week is more than likely. We suggest starting the party with The Pack and Cataracs at WOW Hall on Thursday, Oct. 2. On Saturday, check on tix to Talib Kweli at the McDonald. If sold out, get your low-riding ass over to WOW Hall for the superdank Ill Bill and Sean Price co-billing. Next Thursday, Oct. 9, your choice falls between the hip hop flamboyance of MURS (pictured) and Kidz in the Hall at WOW Hall or the prince of reggae-hop Ky-Mani Marley (aka Baby Marley) at Indigo District. See Calendar.

If you watch what’s broadcast on that infernal invention the television, you’ve probably heard Rogue Wave (pictured) without realizing you were hearing Rogue Wave. The Oakland indie-rock band’s music has been highlighted in everything from commercials for Microsoft and ESPN to episodes of Heroes, Scrubs, Weeds and The O.C., and its guilt-free power pop should win over the Luddites, too. Kudos to the UO Cultural Forum for booking this free show on the grass of the Memorial Quad (between library and Lillis). Newbies to Eugene: Bring rain ponchos. See Saturday Calendar.

Don’t be fooled by the “international” part of the Eugene International Film Festival, taking place at Valley River Center’s Regal Cinemas Friday through Sunday: Many of the films screened are actually quite domestic (made in the U.S.) and regional (Pacific Northwest). We don’t know much at all about this obscure festival (having received no press materials) but its website is somewhat helpful. The site tells us that The Showdown (pictured), which juxtaposes a duel between a pitcher and a batter with two gunslingers in the Old West, will be screening at 7:45 pm Saturday. There’s also an awards celebration on Sunday that you can attend if you pony up $25 cash. See www.eugenefilmfest.org and Friday through Sunday Calendar.
