Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 10.16.08





.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

Ukuleles are synonymous with Hawaiian music. Hear a few strums of the “uke” and the sound of Hawaiian island life comes to mind. Unsurprising given its miniature stature in the guitar world, it’s also a favorite instrument of buskers and transients. In Eugene it’s probably more common to find its cousin, the banjo ukulele (aka the “banjolele”), in use. For the second year in a row, Eugene hosts a UKEtoberfest, a celebration of “all things ukulele.” There will be two concerts (Friday night at Cozmic Pizza; Saturday night at Agate Hall, featuring the up-and-coming singer-songwriter Victoria Vox, pictured), as well as workshops, open mics, jams, hula dancing, vendors and prizes throughout the day at UO’s Agate Hall and Knight Law Center Saturday. See www.uketoberfest.com and Calendar.



While it technically isn’t “Eugene’s first brew theater” as KVAL-TV would have you believe, there’s still reason to celebrate the grand opening of the David Minor Theater. Wandering Goat’s been serving Ninkasi and projecting flicks for the past year, but the new theater housed inside Ronny’s Audio Vision on 5th and Pearl will certainly have surround-sound and crisper picture quality thanks to high-definition digital technology. For its opening, the theater will show two free screenings of Iron Man (pictured) along with beer, wine and chocolate available for purchase. Also, technically a “brew theater” brews its own beer, but we won’t spoil the celebration of Minor (who died in a bike accident on Willamette Street in June) that this establishment hopes to become. See Friday Calendar.


Ski bums and ski bum wannabes return from their endless summers, yawn widely and then proceed to the local showing of Warren Miller’s Children of Winter, showcasing the latest in snow-porn in slow-motion, all set to a mainstream rock soundtrack. As the annoying narrator claims at the start of the film’s trailer, “It’s not winter ‘til Warren Miller comes to town.” Indeed, Miller’s films come but once a year, and the latest installment even has a segment on Bend and Mount Bachelor (with music by Sigur Rós, Hot Chip, Alkaline Trio, Fujiya and Miyagi and Weezer … rad-iculous!). Speaking of Bachelor, attendees to either the Wednesday screening at OSU’s LaSells Stewart Center or Thursday, Oct. 23’s two screenings at the McDonald Theatre will receive a free lift ticket voucher to that mountain, along with a coupon for Berg’s Ski & Snowboard Shop. See Calendar.
