Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 7.22.10





.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

Any time a newbie, skippy or pass-through burns into town, one of the premiere landmarks she’s urged toward is Sam Bond’s Garage — the Whiteaker’s mecca of uber-hip schmatatude and maverick micros served in squinty Mason Jars. This weekend demarks the (yes, believe it) 15th anniversary of that nexus of good great music, fantastic fud and rubbernecking nabobs, all to be celebrated with three consecutive days of uplift including music by Ego Machine, Knuckle Sammwich & more, Bond’s bingo fixture Tom Heinl, lotsa dance and a screening of Andrew Lathrop’s “rockumentary” filmed on location and featuring a poopload of local bands. Congrats to owners Todd Davis, Bart Caridio and Mark Jaeger, pictured above. $5 each day, July 23-25, check the listings for daily featured attractions.
