Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 2.11.10





.This Week's Calendar | Galleries | Music @ the Clubs

Say whatever you want, but you know you love that song “Santa Monica,” from Everclear’s 1995 debut, Sparkle & Fade. With its chunky three-chord riff, simple bashing beat and alpha-omega crescendo, the single captures that classic sad but sunshiny escapism of California punk pop. Singer and frontman Art Alexakis — a reformed drug addict whose horrid childhood has been well publicized — was already in his mid-‘30s when that album hit big, and now, at 47, the band has been through multiple break ups, line-up changes and label shuffles. Even if there is nothing left of that original Portland-based outfit aside from Alexakis’s sheer tenacity and talent for writing catchy songs, you should show your love when Everclear and SixLifter7 play WOW Hall at 7:30pm Wednesday, Feb. 17; $18 adv., $20 door.



For policy wonks, journalists, regular readers of The New Yorker and just about anyone looking for a heads-up on high-level political misdeeds, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and author Seymour Hersh is a living legend. Hersh exploded onto the scene in 1969 when, with the Vietnam War going at full throttle, he broke the story on the My Lai massacre, in an article written for a small news service that ran in more than 30 newspapers and to this day marks a historical nadir in that particular U.S. travesty. More recently, he has written on the Iraq War and other political screw-ups with such fierce tenacity that neo-con Richard Perle called him the “closest thing American journalism has to a terrorist.” Hersh’s public talks are notoriously feisty and often loose-cannon-ish — meaning, not to be missed. He gives a free talk 7pm Thursday, Feb. 18, at UO’s EMU, where it is urged you rush now for advance tickets.



Joined by internationally acclaimed pianist Angela Hewitt (pictured), the Eugene Symphony on Thursday, Feb. 18, will perform composer-in-residence Steven Stucky’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Second Concerto for Orchestra, which as hailed as an “electrifying piece” by the New York Times. Also on tap are Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis, and a performance by Hewitt of Beethoven’s Fourth Concerto.
