Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 7.23.09





.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

Forged in the cauldron of transcendent poetics and stamped with the sepia-tinted seal of vaudeville, the Hungry Crow Sideshow is an original puppet musical that takes on the darkness and light of life’s cycles. It is billed as experimental theater that will please kids and adults alike, what with its navigation “through free wheeling fun and puzzling circumstances.” Having flown the rounds recently — including a stop at the Oregon Country Fair — this particular bird lands at Cottage Grove’s Kalapuya Books Thursday, July 23. 



New Orleans-based puppeteer Miss Pussycat (aka Panacea Theriac) concocts hand-made spectacles that are as sideways and surreally swampy as the French Quarter on a Friday night. With her regular tour mate Quintron — whose synth-driven, carnivalesque sound has been labeled “swamp tech” — Pussycat creates a kind of raucous Renaissance atmosphere that goads audiences into a frenzy of Punch-and-Judy hissing, roaring and laughter. Hallucinatory and highly entertaining, this oddball bill at WOW Hall (which also includes Warpaint and Moonrats) on Tuesday is sure to put the circus back in your summer.


Sun, scenery, wine and music — the 3rd Annual World Music Festival Sunday, July 26, at Sweet Cheeks Winery promises just about everything you’d need for a lovely July afternoon, with the added benefit that this showcase of local talent is, well, a benefit. The festival — which will feature Reeble Jar (pictured), Hot Club Eugene and I’chele, to name but a few acts — is the primary fundraiser for Musicians Emergency Medical Association, a local organization offering financial aid to uninsured artists. So dance, drink and do good.
