Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 5.6.10





.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

Though he’s sailed north to Portland’s greener pastures — musically speaking, of course — Eugene loyalist Marv Ellis is still representing big time for his former digs, as evidenced on his latest album, Mental Picture Machine. “We got that clean air, we got that clean water,” Ellis sings on “Opus,” the opening track, and on “Vibe Music” he drops such local flares as “Papa’s Soul Food Kitchen on October 16th” and memories of “my porch swing chillin’ in Eugene in the summer.” With his slightly raspy and ever confident delivery, Ellis lays down a lyrical vision of cosmic brotherly love where the sky opens up to blue and things ain’t so bad, creating on the whole a cycle of hip-hop-inflected meditations that cross-over smoothly into a funky anthem groove that borrows as much from Marvin Gaye as Mos Def. Catch Marv Ellis & The Platform Friday at McDonald Theatre, where—with his typical support for local arts—you can also dig on Lafa Taylor, the Acoustic Minds, DJ DV8, Zulu Nation B-Boys as well as two live painters and a “handmade market of craft makers.”



They’re colorful like a Kandinsky, ubiquitous like the cosmos and permanent like herpes — yes, we’re talking tattoos, those skin-pricked expressions of modern identity politics that run the illustrative gamut from swastikas to swans. All things epidermally eternal will be celebrated this weekend during the Oregon Ink 2010 gathering at Lane County Fairgrounds. Featuring more than 200 artists as well as demos, contests, burlesque shows, art and so much more, this is the titular tat fest to show off the breast… um, best of your inky beautified body. Friday through Sunday; $15 day, $30 weekend pass.
