Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 5.14.09

.This Week's 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

Menomena bring their indie rock from Portland to the Willamette Valley Music (no longer Folk) Festival at the Cuthbert on Saturday. For the full line-up grab the four-page pullout in this week's paper or go to musicfest.uoregon.edu

Festival season begins! From now ’til the end of summer, you could spend most every weekend at a different festival, from this weekend’s Scottish Festival to the Scandinavian Festival in August and beyond. At the Eugene Scottish Festival on Saturday from 10am ’til 6pm, you can sample some haggis, listen to bagpipes, watch the swordfights, meet Winston the Wonder dog and check out all the men in kilts. There’ll be more tartan than you can shake a stick at.

Shop for a good cause on Saturday at the Maude Kerns Folk Art Sale & Celebration. It’s a benefit to raise money both for Maude Kerns Art Center and for the medical expenses of Susan Dearborn Jackson, a folklorist who has curated the Día de los Muertos exhibit at the Art Center. From Oaxacan tin mermaids to carvings and skeletons, come see the folk art and support Jackson and Maude Kerns. 5:30-8:30pm. 15th & Villard.FREE.

To balance out Forbidden Broadway at Actors Cabaret, why not take in the much more, er, sincere Neil Berg’s 100 Years of Broadway at the Hult thisweekend? Broadway stars  (whom we in the hinterlands do not yet know) belt out the classics and new hits, and five young competition winners from the area join them on stage. See Friday Calendar.  8 pm, Hult Center.
