The dog days of August will prove decidedly less dogged Friday and Saturday when the Willamette Valley Brews & Blues Festival revs into gear at Springfield’s Island Park. A benefit for Habitat for Humanity as well as benefit for FOOD for Lane County, this suds-and-song extravaganza features such smokin’ hot acts as Grammy nominated singer Ellen Whyte (pictured), The Love Sisters and Bill Rhoades (a.k.a. “The Godfather of Oregon Blues”) backed by the Party Kings, as well as a “Best of the Fest” contest for Northwest breweries.


Sashay on over to the historic Shelton-McMurphey-Johnson House at 5:30 pm on Friday for another warm summer First Friday ArtWalk. From photography to “wild, fantastical hair artistry on live models,” there’s a little art for everyone, as well as some theater and a fashion show. See Arts/Visual and go to www.lanearts.org for more information.
