Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 11.19.09

.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

We haven’t seen the crowd-pleasing, reel-inducing Misty River in Eugene for a while. That’s because band members were doing everything from teaching preschoolers to teaching young band dudes how to drive the big vehicles that cart musicians around the country. But with everyone ready for a break from their break, the harmony wielders return for a pre-Tofurkey-day concert, their trademark songs at the ready and new material bubbling up from the year-long hiatus. See this Oregon treasure at 3:30 pm Sunday at the First Christian Church. Tickets (which often sell out for Misty River concerts) are $15 adv., $17 door at www.mistyriverband.com and CD World. 

If you’d like to put a finishing chuckle on the ass-kicking month that was Grrrlz Rock 2009, make your way Saturday to the 4th Annual Pacific Northwest Women’s Comedy Festival at Springfield’s Wildish Theater, where you will be tickled pink by a line-up of comedians that includes Hollywood Squares joke writer Rylee Newton, Erma Bombeck Award-winner Leigh Anne Jasheway (pictured), Sharon Lacey, Virginia Jones, Lisa Myers, JeanAnn O’Brien, headliner Susan Rice and the comic troupe The Freerange Chix. $25, half-off w/VIP pass. 18+ www.grrrlzrock.com.

Those percussion grenades hurled at corralled citizens during the 1999 activist shut-down of the WTO conference in Seattle and ensuing riot squad beat-back were a shot heard loud and clear around the world, and the echo reverberates still. At least we hope it does. To commemorate the debacle/victory’s 10th anniversary, there will be a WTO Teach-In Saturday from 1-4 pm at the UO’s Fir Room, and later that evening, a “Eugene Says ‘No’ to the WTO Celebration” at 6:30 pm at WOW Hall, which will feature live music from the Sugar Beets and New Mexican Revolution, and a screening of This is What Democracy Looks Like. $5-$15 sug. don.
