Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 10.08.09





.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

Swing your partners and save trees — Cascadia Wildlands 8th Annual Hoedown gets underway at 6pm Saturday, Oct. 10, at Avalon Stables in Cottage Grove. With the help of caller Bob Ewing, you can learn to square dance to the music of the Conjugal Visitors while also raising money to save Oregon’s ancient forests. The event takes place in a horse arena, so dress warmly and get ready to do the tree-hugger do-si-do. For more information and to buy tickets ($20 advanced, $25 door) go to www.cascwild.org or call 434-1463.


Local, funny and smart, memoirist and UO adjunct prof Melissa Hart reads from her newest piece of writing, Gringa (published last week by Seal Press). The book is about a childhood that mixes tragedy and laughter, but Hart’s sense of humor keeps the serious material (custody issues, homophobic courts, class warfare of a sort) light enough and the light material serious enough to make a compelling read. See her book video trailer on our blog (learn to make a Frito boat!) and see her in person 6pm Thursday, Oct. 15, at the UO Bookstore.



The mission of the Eugene International Film Festival is to “honor filmmakers who inspire, entertain and inform through fact or fiction.” This year, the festival screens more than 75 films from around the globe. Stealing Second, a short film written and directed by UO grad Alex Richanbach, and Politics of Sand, a documentary about access to Oregon’s beaches, come from close to home; other feature-length selections include the documentary Tapped, which looks at efforts to privatize water; 3 Days Blind (pictured), about two brothers coming home to their dysfunctional family; and The Nature of Existence, which asks questions about life, the universe and everything. Films screen at Valley River Center’s Regal Cinemas Oct. 9-11. See www.eugenefilmfest.org and Friday Calendar.



If continuous reinvention is the wellspring of artistic longevity, it’s difficult to imagine a pair of musicians who personified this truth more completely, and with more pure genius and stubborn vitality, than Bob Dylan and John Lennon. Friday, Oct. 9, is Lennon’s birthday (he would have been 69), and Cozmic Pizza is throwing a party in celebration of his life and music. Dylan is still very much with us, as you can see for yourself when he and his band play McArthur Court Thursday, Oct. 8.
