Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 11.12.09

.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

When some people think of the Northwest music scene, they think of “grunge.” If you’re a Eugenean, however, you might think of ‘swing’ instead, thanks to Eugene’s own Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, whose 1998 album Zoot Suit Riot propelled them to national fame. And if you really know the band, then when you think Cherry Poppin’ Daddies you think not only of swing but of ska, punk, Latin and, of course, Dildorado, the mechanized male member that zoomed around stage ejaculating, well, you know, stuff during the Daddies’ live gigs. Will the more PC sects of our local population object once again to the band’s risqué name, and start tearing down their flyers around town? Guess we’ll find out at their CD release party at the WOW Hall. 9pm Thursday, Nov. 19, WOW Hall. $15 adv., $18 door.   

Do you really love The Pixies? No, seriously: Do you really love the Pixies? If so, you have two reasons to be ecstatic this week: First, there’s the wildly influential, originally Boston-based group’s box set Minotaur, which came out on Tuesday and includes each of the band’s albums — in three formats (including gold-plated CDs). Audio snobs, this one’s for you. For the rest of us, there’s the Pixies show at the Hult Center Saturday night, during which the now-local Frank Black (whom y’all were kind enough to vote Eugene’s second-best musician in our readers’ poll last month) and company will tear through the entirery of Doolittle, which, whether or not you think it’s the best Pixies album of all, does mean that the show should open with “Debaser,” which means this writer will have a shit-eating grin on her face from the word go. And so will the rest of the crowd. Get there early: Rain Machine, the fiercely intimate, sprawling side project from TV on the Radio’s Kyp Malone, opens. When was the last time you got to rock out in the Hult? 8 pm Saturday, Nov. 14, Hult Center. $35-$55.

With a digital organ shipping in from Portland and a piece that organist Lawrence Clabby describes as one of his favorites — which includes four hands at the piano, as well, in a tribute to Franz Lizst —  Saint Saens’ majestic Symphony No. 3 headlines Nov. 19’s Eugene Symphony concert at the Hult. Although most attention will be on the Saint Saens, don’t overlook the other major piece on the program. Ravel’s Mother Goose suite contains some of his  — or anyone’s — most enchanting music. The composer’s self consciousness and other distractions vanished in the successful attempt to create  a magical world for kids, resulting in one of the most magical of compositions for adults, too. 8 pm Thursday, Nov. 19. $15-$53.
