Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 4.15.10

.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

Hats off to the four dudes that make up the politically minded, smart-ass punk band NOFX, who’ve been doing their thing for more than 25 years now. NOFX put out their 11th studio album, Coaster, last spring; as you’d expect, it takes on the political (“We Called It America”) as well as the darkly personal (“My Orphan Year”), and continues the quartet’s interest in women who don’t sleep with men (“Creeping Out Sara,” about half of the Canadian indie duo Tegan and Sara — though exactly which half is something singer/bassist Fat Mike can’t keep straight). Whether examining the history of Iron Maiden (with metal riffs), playing with lounge (the trumpet-led intro to “I Am an Alcoholic”) or contemplating the future of outdated media (“One Million Coasters”), NOFX effectively and amusingly continue to mine the vein that’s kept them running all these years, even if they sometimes stretch it just a bit (bass clarinet?). And it’s clearly working for them; the band’s Wednesday, April 21, show at the McDonald Theatre is already sold out.

It’s tax week, sure, but it’s also reggae week at WOW Hall, so while you’re shredding your papers, be sure to save some for rolling. The Wailing Souls (pictured) and Prezident Brown will satisfy all your cravings Friday at 9pm, while Indubious and Alcyon Massive salute the universally hallowed 4:20 at 10pm sharp (or maybe not so sharp) on Saturday, April 20. If you still haven’t had enough of that slow backbeat and bouncy bass, Mad Professor and Children of Discord round out the week-long reggae triumvirate with their dub-erific rhythms at 10pm Thursday, April 22. One love, brother, three ways.
