Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 11.11.10





.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

If there’s one thing you can say with certainty about Boise-based indie grandfathers and all-around brilliant rock/jam band Built to Spill, it’s that they move at their own speed: They will finish playing a song if and when they damn well please; they will record and release an album only when they’re ready; they will tour where and when they please, usually hewing close to home and often staying two or three nights in bigger places like Seattle, as well as making sure they spread the love to smaller Northwest locales like Bend, Ashland and Eugene. This is all as it should be — it was the tortoise that won the race, remember? If you attended BTS’s intimate, sprawling, powerful WOW Hall gig last year, you’ll be there again on Friday; if you didn’t see the boys last time around, you won’t want to miss a chance to catch one of the most durable, inventive and graciously entertaining bands of the past two decades. BTS plays with La Fleur at 9pm Friday, Nov. 12, at WOW Hall; $22 adv., $25 door.
