Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 10.14.10

.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

A heavy, crackly vibe of white-trash menace thrums and hums through the music of Yelawolf, a Southern rapper whose chunky beats, squelchy bass runs and snarling, rapid-fire delivery are reminiscent of Eminem — but meaner, fouler and muddier, as though risen from some stanky oil slick in Pa Snopes’ junkyard. Born Michael Wayne Atha in Gadsden, Alabama, Yelawolf taps into the rusted-out cars, fast women, bonged beers and cut-and-run culture of his itinerant upbringing, and his lyrics take no prisoners and broker no bullshit. With his canny blend of trailer-park tough, classic rock thud, brutal humor and chicken-fried fuckery, Yelawolf brings something new and intriguing to the table, like the Dukes of Hazzard driving NWA to an Aerosmith concert. Yelawolf opens for Wiz Khalifa Saturday at WOW Hall.
