Calendar Features

Christine McKinley, author of Physics for Rock Stars and host of  the History Channel series “Brad Meltzer’s Decoded,” will explain exactly why nature abhors a vacuum when she gives a free talk 3pm Saturday, Sept. 13, at the Eugene Downtown Library.

With that trademark nasal twang delivered in the languorous tones of weary urban cool, Mike Doughty led Soul Coughing to ’90s notoriety, creating with seminal albums like Ruby Vroom and Irresistible Bliss a hip-hop soundtrack for the end of the century. His taste for heroin and booze ran things into the ground before Doughty re-emerged a solo artist (as well as a published author), gaining fans the hard way, minus a label and touring in a rental car. An innovative singer/songwriter who brings wisdom, wit and hard truth to bear on his music, Doughty neither regrets his history nor closes the door on it, opting instead to forge ahead into ever-new realms of underground artistry.

Mike Doughty plays 8:30pm Saturday, Sept. 13, at Axe & Fiddle in Cottage Grove; $15.

Oregon’s most famous wolf, OR-7 (aka Journey), is on a roll: First, he found a mate, then had adorable wolf pups and now he’s about to hit the big screen in his very own documentary. OR7 — The Journey tells the story of a lone wolf breaking from his Northeastern Oregon pack and becoming the first known wolf west of the Cascades since 1947. The documentary’s Eugene premiere will include a Q&A session with wolf advocates and filmmaker Clemens Schenk. It’s sure to be a howling good time.

OR7 — The Journey is 7pm Thursday, Sept. 18, at Bijou Art Cinemas, 492 E. 13th Ave. $10.

Australian filmmaker Chris Edser’s short The Beards: Got Me a Beard plays during the Best of the Northwest Animation Festival screening at 1pm and pm Saturday, Sept. 13, at Bijou Metro; $5 matinee, $7 evening.

Calendar Submission Guidelines:

 

Calendar publication days are every Thursday. Due date for the calendar is the Thursday before the Thursday issue in which you would like your event published. Our What's Happening calendar is an eight-day calendar, Thursday to Thursday, while our music listings calendar is a seven-day calendar, Thursday to Wednesday. 

Example: If your event happens on Wednesday, Aug. 20, your listing would appear in our Aug. 14 issue, and the listing would be due to the calendar editor on Thursday, Aug. 7. Events that happen on Thursdays may be listed in two issues if the listing is submitted on time.

To facilitate organizing our calendar listings, please send your information as text in the body of the email  to cal@eugeneweekly.com, and attach only pertinent photos as high resolution jpg files, 1MB or larger. Attaching high resolution pictures greatly increases your chances of getting featured in our weekly calendar.

Sending information mixed with images descriptions, formatting and attachments makes locating the information difficult for our calendar writers, so please send all information in text, at the top of your message. Label all photos with the name of what is pictured or the event.

At the bottom of the email feel free to add extra information and details in case we can expand on your listing a little.

The closer you are to our listing format, the better the chance of your listing getting in the way you want it!
