Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 7.16.09

.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

Charting such fam-friendly hits as “Dr. Crazy Diaper” and “Fuck Us Up,” Eugene’s Pistol Whipped Prophets are just the sort of retro-neo-punk band you can take grandma to see — if your grandmother happens to eat shit for breakfast and her name is Patricia Krenwinkel. To whit, PWP churn out a brand of hey-ho, three-chord hardcore that brings to mind both the hobnailed anthems of the Sex Pistols and the fist-pumping guttersnipe fanfare of the Ramones — lots of sick and wrong humor, in-your-gob choruses and chunky drunky riffs. Fronted by one inky faced Ale Boy (his twin brother, Spooky, plays “mutant” bass), the band has dropped consecutive releases over the past two years, which vitality augers well for the continuing rough energy and circus antics of their live gigs. Watch them beat everyone into submission Friday at the WOW Hall. See Nightlife.

The Oregon Bach Festival claims that about 15,000 people attended its outdoor concert in Alton Baker Park just before the fireworks on July 4, and though that many people can’t legally fit inside the Cuthbert when the Eugene Symphony plays a FREE outdoor concert at 8 pm Friday, July 18, we could sure TRY to top the OBF’s record crowd. The ESO’s exciting new conductor Danail Rachev leads the muscians and his wife, soprano Elizabeth Racheva (pictured), in a crowd-pleasing concert that ends with a real bang — the cannons of the 1812 Overture. Bring the kids & a picnic!

Lebanon-based photographer Lewis Forquer’s haunting “snapshots” (currently on display at DIVA) capture the spooky feeling of adolescent not-quite-belonging. A graduate of UO’s photography program, Forquer began taking photos his senior year in high school, and lately has developed a technique of constructing miniature stage settings by hand and shooting them with a 4-by-5 view camera. He will speak about his method, and all things photogenic, on Friday at DIVA. See Arts/Visual, and see Visual Arts, p. 27.
