Calendar Features

The quintessential image of Americana, singer-songwriter Joe Pug (born Joseph Pugliese) fingerpicks his guitar while a harmonica hangs from his neck, a disarming rasp twinging his voice. Thanks to this look, he’s often likened to folk prophets like Bob Dylan and John Prine — though the contents of his songwriting aren’t too far off, either. Carrying on the tradition of literate, landscape-driven imagery and tangible melody in American songwriting, Pug is the one-man folk show adapted for modern times: Just swap the social justice references with tales of personal heartbreak and wrongdoing. As a descendant of the greats who came before, Pug fills a much-needed space in contemporary acoustic music. To prove his “folkness,” he even sends free CDs to anyone interested, and often offers them up at his shows — so there’s no excuse not to fall in love with him.

Joe Pug opens for The Devil Makes Three 8:30 pm Thursday, Feb. 5, at the McDonald Theatre; $25, all ages.

In keeping with the anti-establishmentarian spirit of the Whit, the Last Friday Art Walk is as ragtag and gorgeously unorganized as the neighborhood in which it takes place. Basically, if you wander out after sundown in the Whiteaker neighborhood and hit up any sort of artsy venue — galleries, of course, but also bars, coffee shops, breweries, tattoo parlors, etc. — you’re likely to find an opening of sorts, featuring work by artist(s) and sometimes wine, food and live music. Highlights this month feature Hanif Panni’s Animal exhibit at Ninkasi (272 Van Buren), oil and acrylic paintings by Marlene Bremner (whose work is pictured) at Wandering Goat (268 Madison) and “Visions of Portland and Other Works” by A. Julian Boyer at Oakshire Public House (207 Madison).

The Last Friday Art Walk takes place 6-9 pm (some places stay open later) Friday, Jan. 30, at various locations in the Whiteaker neighborhood, where you never know what you’ll find but, likely, you’ll find what you need; for more information, visit wkly.ws/1wz.

It’s that time of month, Eugene, when frolicsome fun meets a good cause at “Made in the USA,” the official Wednesday night LGBTQ Happy Hour at the Barn Light that also functions as a fundraiser for selected LGBTQ charities across the country. February’s featured state is Louisiana which, according to event organizer John O’Malley, promises to be a humid little slice of New Orleans-style fun: “Louisiana! Laissez les bons temp rouler! Gumbo! King cake! LGBTQ-history specialty cocktails! Surprise performances! Queen of Mardis Gras Float-obooth! Zydeco music and more!” Don’t believe it? Just look at that smile on O’Malley’s face during last month’s festivities, which focused on Kansas while poking fun at Westboro Baptist Church.

Made in the USA (Feelin’ Great, State by State) LGBTQ Happy Hour kicks off 6 pm and goes late Wednesday, Feb. 4, at The Barn Light; donations at the door will help support LGBTQ activities in Louisiana, though admission is free.

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.
