Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 4.8.10

.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

If it weren’t for the subtle electro-flourishes punctuating his loose-jointed music — the tell-tale snap of the snare occasionally tripping into a dub tumble, the condensed rattle and hiss of the remixed sound, the ultra-bright vocals spun through a processor — you might mistake Mayer Hawthorne’s sunshiny soul for something chugged from the pre-homicide factory of Phil Spector or Stax Studios. Hawthorne, with his faltering vibrato and smooth compulsive negritude, mines some of the same ’70s territory as Beck, David Byrne and the Beastie Boys before him, but this white boy’s earnest groove is all breezy easy feeling,  a stroll down sunny sidewalks in the muggy summer of love by way of Al Green’s Technicolor dream of a grit-free world. Sugar pie, honey bun, don’t miss this dude crooning your Superfly song when he opens with Bear Hands for Passion Pit at McDonald Theatre Saturday; $20 adv., $22 door. Fuck yeah!

It wiggles and shimmies and shines. It comes in all the colors of the rainbow, amplified by a day-glo neon aura. Enterprising people have put everything in it from Spam to booze to wedding rings. It is as indubitably American as apple pie and imperialism, and quite possibly the defining symbol of our bizarre consumer culture… Yes, we are speaking of Jell-O, that amber-like translucent hyper-unkosher substance made from ground animal hooves that sits on your plate like a hunk of squared cellulite. What’s not to celebrate? Don’t ask the folks at Maude Kerns Art Center, where at 5-8pm on Saturday you can take part in “Jello Fever,” an arts extravaganza that will feature Jell-O art, a “Tacky Food Buffet” and a performance by the Radar Angels (pictured); $3 per person, $5 for families.


Cynically hip, contentiously polite, contradictorily rebellious, Conan O’Brien was the great honkie hope for people who find Letterman too winky and antiquated and Leno, well, just way too Leno (a sell out on all fronts, with a big head and a snicker that sounds like George Bush gobbling tofu). Since he was ceremoniously and very ostentatiously canned from his late night gig, Co Co has been taking it on the road as a traveling sideshow of stand-up vaudeville and talk show-type shenanigans. Hit it if you can 8pm Monday, April 12, at the Hult (it’s sold out and all) and catch the heat of the best non-story of 2010.
