As Portland is to musical hotspots today, Athens, Ga., was to music-making back in the ’80s and ’90s. R.E.M. kicked things off for sure, but it was the Elephant 6 collective that really put Athens on the map. This collective was like an indie-rock placenta, birthing such bands as Of Montreal, Neutral Milk Hotel, The Apples in Stereo and the slightly less mainstream Elf Power, who plays at Sam Bond’s this week (9 pm  11/13, $12, 21+). But if this psychedelic power-pop sextet weren’t enough of a happening event, Elf Power will be collaborating with alt-folk pioneer Vic Chesnutt (pictured). On their new collaborative album, Dark Developments, Chesnutt and Elf Power create a loose, jangly folk-pop gem that balances out Chesnutt’s nasally voice with dreamy instrumentals. Don’t miss this rare pairing. See Thursday, Nov. 13 Calendar.

Being born after 1980, we missed our chance to see Joy Division prior to Ian Curtis’ suicide. So it is with pleasure that in the 2000s we have bands (mostly out of Brooklyn, curiously enough) who carry the torch of post-punk on into the future. Crystal Stilts (9 pm 11/6, Samurai Duck, $3-$5, 21+) is one of those Brooklyn bands breaking new ground on the graves of rock’s largest pioneers. They sound uncannily like Joy Division on some tracks off their latest LP, Alight of Night, while others veer into poppy Velvet Underground baroque garage-rock. Pitchfork called the Stilts “moody-sounding fuckers” who are “weirdly life-affirming and very fun. You want to dance when you hear them,” and we’d have to agree. See Thursday, Nov. 6 Calendar.

To paraphrase a The Onion’s version of George W. Bush: Our long national nightmare of war-mongering, ecological destruction and economic disaster is over. It’s time to shop!  And in the case of the First Friday ArtWalk, it’s a perfect event to get some Hope™-filled residents of Eugene to the downtown core to partake in the many art galleries, dance spaces, restaurants, boutiques and bookstores that are holding on by a thread while you’ve had your head buried in the sand (and your cash under your mattress). The guided tour includes stops and interviews at Jacobs Gallery, White Lotus Gallery (art by Jamie Newton pictured), Sacred Traveler Gift & Gallery, Goldworks and DIVA, all of it led by Opus6ix Curator Robert Canaga and KVAL’s Shelley Kurtz. See Friday Calendar.

You could call it American Blues Idol or maybe the Battle of the Blues. Or you can just call it by its name: Rainy Day Blues Society’s International Blues Challenge Competition, going down at Cozmic Pizza this week (1:30 pm 11/9, $3-$6 sug. don., all ages). Al Rivers (pictured), Blue Moon Society and Rob & The Blueside will each perform for 30 minutes and be judged on Blues Content, Talent, Originality and Stage Presence. The winning act will represent the RDBS at the national competition in Memphis in February. See Sunday Calendar.
