Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 9.1.11



.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

Do you like marijuana? How about parties? So does Wiz Khalifa. You may have heard of an obscure little joint called “Black and Yellow,” sure to be parodied by Duck fans this fall. His last two Eugene shows at the WOW Hall were packed with kerrayzee fans, and his Saturday show at the Cuthbert Amphitheater is sure to draw a similarly pungent crowd.
