“And on the subject of burning books,” the great American writer Kurt Vonnegut once said, “I want to congratulate librarians … who, all over this country, have staunchly resisted anti-democratic bullies who have tried to remove certain books from their shelves … The America I love still exists at the front desk of our public libraries.” Amen. Celebrate free speech and the right to read whatever you damn well please 1-3pm Saturday, Sept. 27, when the Eugene Downtown Library hosts a Banned Books Read-Out featuring presentations by Mayor Kitty Piercy and library director Connie Bennet.

We know them by their heretical handles — Rat Rod, Stevie Plunder, Bullet Brains, Marilyn Man-Slaughter — and by their general demeanor, which runs the gamut from aggressively confident to downright furious. The Emerald City Roller Girls open up the season Saturday, Sept. 27, with a home team round-robin tournament that puts the Andromedolls, Church of Sk8in and the Flat Track Furies on a oblong collision course of roller derby domination. If you crave a sporting spectacle of bumping, grinding and high-velocity antics, get thee to the track.

Emerald City Roller Girls season opener gets underway at 5pm Saturday, Sept. 27, at Lane Events Center Auditorium, 796 W. 13th Ave.; $12.

Head’s up Lane County banjo-lovers, someone made a movie for you. UO folklore grad student Bruno Seraphin’s 2012 film If I Had Wings to Fly follows the banjo-playing ramblings of Felix Eugene across the Appalachian Mountains. Although technically not a documentary, the film does feature the music, dance and oral traditions of the area as a “backdrop for characters exploring the joys and sorrows of being young and directionless.” This free, public screening is presented by the Oregon Folklife Network and the UO Folklore Program. Seraphin will be on hand for a Q&A. The movie kicks off a monthly series of folklore and ethnographic films.

 

 If I Had Wings to Fly screens 6 pm Friday, Sept. 26, at Willamette Hall, Room 110, on the UO campus. FREE.

Putting the “fun” back in “fundraiser,” the Richard E. Wildish Community Theater in Springfield will hold Wildstock II, a benefit event bent on keeping the venue open by chipping away at rental rates. This two-in-one Friday gala offers a wine-and-eats gathering next door at Terese’s Place, followed by a variety show at the theater featuring performances by the likes of Chamber Music Amici, Rose Children’s Theater, Ballet Fantastique as well as pianist and new UO music faculty member Ingrid Keller, who will tickle the ivories of the Wildish’s own Steinway Grand.

Wildstock II takes place Friday, Sept. 26, starting with a 6:30pm pre-reception at Terese’s Place and followed by an 8pm show at Wildish Theater, 630 Main St., in Springfield; $25 show, $35 show & reception, wildishtheater.com or 868-0689.

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.
