Calendar Features

The personality of Portland pop-influenced trio Rocket 3 can be pretty much summed up by its Facebook page description: “Rocket 3 wants to rock with you.” Immediately and innocently lovable, this threesome delivers straightforward, infectious tunes played with slight guitar fuzz, tight drum fills and light, dreamy vocals. Each member of the band is a Midwest native, which can be heard in the band’s guitar-rock simplicity, though its more free-associated, psychedelic sounds are distinctly Pacific Northwest. Rocket 3 has played together for several years, but the group’s debut album, Burn, was just released Nov. 4. And now they’re ready to celebrate — you won’t want to miss the release show for Burn, happening this week as part of the Grrrlz Rock concert series.

Rocket 3 plays 6pm Friday, Nov. 21, at the WOW Hall; $8 adv., $10 door. — Isabel Zacharias

It’s Thanksgiving night: You’re stuffed with stuffing and yucky with yams, and that chatty, neurotic extended family of dingbats and drunks and drama queens you so love has packed up and gone home, not to return till Christmas inaugurates another symptomatic round of obligatory togetherness. What to do? Just pour yourself a cup of yuletide cheer and flip on KLCC’s holiday show, “Thanksgiving Gypsy Swing,” three hours of hot jazz featuring the inimitable stylings of Manouche Romani guitar great Django Reinhardt and his friend, violinist Stephane Grappelli, who together founded the legendary Quintette du Hot Club de France, one of the most influential jazz combos of all time. Dig it, pilgrim.

“Thanksgiving Gypsy Swing” plays 9-midnight Thursday, Nov. 27, on radio-free KLCC 89.7 FM.

Canada’s Three (Folk) Graces and perennial Eugene favorite The Wailin’ Jennys return again to shower their heavenly voices upon us. In addition to the vocals of soprano Ruth Moody, mezzo Nicky Mehta and alto Heather Masse, the trio brings a babbling brook of instrumentals marked by accordion, banjo, bodhrán, harmonica and ukulele. The band’s first shot at an album, 2004’s 40 Days, nabbed them a Juno (Canada’s Grammys) for Roots & Traditional Album of the Year; they won again for latest album Bright Morning Stars. In these dark, cold days, be lulled into their alternate universe of an eternal sweet, lazy and hazy summer day. 

The Wailin’ Jennys play 8pm Saturday, Nov. 21, at McDonald Theatre; $36.50, all-ages.

In a place as rich in natural beauty as Eugene, it isn’t surprising that many local artists create work reflecting the natural world. Painter Erika Beyer and fiber artist Robin Seloover are no exceptions to this trend; their new exhibit at Lane Community College, titled  “Structure/Sequence,” showcases work that depicts nature with varying degrees of imagination and scientific accuracy. While Beyer says she relies on “academic journals, folklore and mythology, and conversations with scientists” as part of her design process, Seloover’s art is much more interpretive. “These pieces are explorations in texture, line and form,” Seloover says. Both she and Beyer are also faculty in the Department of Art and Applied Design at LCC.

“Structure/Sequence” runs Nov. 17 – Dec. 10 at Lane Community College Art Gallery; admission is FREE. — Isabel Zacharias

Dirty Wars, a 2013 documentary by filmmaker Richard Rowley about Nation journalist Jeremy Scahill’s investigation into the War on Terror in such dangerous locales as Afghanistan, Somalia and Yemen, receives a free screening 8pm Tuesday, Nov. 18, at UO’s Pacific Hall, room 30, with a discussion to follow.

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!

 

For WHAT'S HAPPENING

The calendar lists free events and special, one-time events that charge admission. We list one-time workshops under $15, but do not list ongoing classes or workshops that charge any sort of fee.

The What's Happening Calendar no longer accepts submissions regarding music; please submit these in a separate email to the Music Listings calendar  outlined below.

To list in our calendar: Place the date (example: July 15, 2014)  in the subject line of your message. 

At the top of the message, include briefly and without extra description:

Event name, time, location, address and cost.

Refer to our online calendar listings for the format. For times, am and pm are always lowercased, and we use & instead of and.
