Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 9.2.10





.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

Look at the size of that band, and not a singer amongst y’all. Hot on the heels of The Budos Band III, this instrumental outfit brings its horn-heavy and unironically retro sound Thursday, Sept. 2, to WOW Hall, where The Budos Band will fill all available space with their “quintessence of Staten Island soul.” What this means for the casual dancer are hooky, discoesque bass lines looping around and through tempo changes and abrupt breaks, all in the service of making you move whatever you don’t check at the door.
