Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 11.13.08





.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

Perhaps the most lauded modern improv jazz trio of our time takes over the McDonald Theatre this week. Medeski, Martin & Wood will play Eugene on this tour cycle that takes them from Seattle to Reno and sees them playing the third (and final) part of their Radiolarian series. This special series — named after a type of single-celled organisms with remarkable exoskeletons — sees the trio getting together for five days to hammer out new material. Then they go on a brief tour to practice the pieces live, after which they cut a record of the new material. Instead of the standard industry practice of write/record/tour, MMW will write/tour/record. Medeski explains, “We’re just trying to keep it honest, keep it true and keep the real purpose of music alive for ourselves and for the people who like to hear us play.” 8 pm Saturday, Nov. 15, McDonald Theatre. $23.50/$25.



No star-studded guest performers at this week’s Eugene Symphony performance — just two star-studded pieces from classical music’s masters at the peaks of their careers. The Symphony (recently voted as one of Eugene’s top three Best Performing Arts Groups) will take on Mozart’s final symphony: Symphony No. 41 in C major, aka the “Jupiter Symphony.” The Jupiter is beloved for its consummate breadth and scope and, by and by, was a nice segue into the French Revolution. Brahms’s final symphonic piece — and what many consider his magnum opus (Symphony No. 4 in E minor) — will conclude the evening. 8 pm Thursday, Nov. 13, Hult Center. $15+.


If you’re a fan of international cinema, then pay attention. This week is going to be burning up with options. Starting on Thursday, check out the Cambodian film Rice People (6 pm 11/13, 110 Willamette, UO, free). For francophones, the Tournées French Film Festival continues this week (7 pm 11/13, 11/18, 11/20, 100 Willamette, UO, free) while the Punto y Raya (dot and line) Film Festival (7 pm 11/16, DIVA, $5-$8) features abstract animations by filmmakers from around the world. And finally, the Festival of New Spanish Cinema kicks off Monday through Sunday (Nov. 17-23), with a special appearance by filmmaker Félix Viscarret introducing his film Bajo las Estrellas (Under the Stars) on Tuesday (6:45 pm 11/18, 115 Lawrence, UO, free).
