Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 8.13.09





.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

Rolling into town Saturday is the Ginger Ninja’s Bicycle Music Festival, a caravan of spinning spokes and improvised sound that will utilize nary an outlet to amplify its eco-friendly rock ‘n’ roll. The festival, featuring music from Reeble Jar, Insects on the Bough, Tobin (pictured) & more, starts at the Southtowne Shoppes and will wheel through Eugene — complete with a mobile “Live On Bike” stage and a 2,000-watt pedal-powered PA — until it ends in a Ninkasi-fueled after party off the River Road bike path.


What do Knut Hamsun, pickled herring, Husker Du, gjetost, lutefisk, accordion music, socialized health care & death metal all have in common? They are but a sample of the fine offerings Scandinavian culture has gifted to our wide world, and you can help celebrate this past and present heritage at the Scandinavian Festival running Aug. 13-16 in nearby Junction City. This party for all things Nordic and Swedish and Finnish will feature crafts, food, a fashion show, dancing, music and, of course, the fabled Scandia Run.



Not to be outdone by the wildly popular Whiteaker Block Party, the folks at Wandering Goat will host a neighborhood barbeque Friday that will feature — along with their delicious coffee, catch-all clientele and gorgeously greasy-haired baristas — musical performances by Heavenly Oceans and Traitor Hearts. But the highlight of the evening, no doubt, will be the 21-and-over Zach Galifianakis Look-Alike Contest. Just as Charlie Chaplin came in second at his own look-alike contest way back when, we’re betting that even Galifianakis — he of the mega-hit comedy The Hangover — would get lost among the hirsute hipsters swarming this fair city.
