For the last 160 years or so, the Willamette Valley has been one of the most prolific hops-growing regions in the world. Last year, Oregon farmers devoted 5,400 acres to hops bines and harvested over 8 million pounds of the stuff. Skinner City Farm honors the plant this weekend with the Heritage Hops Celebration in Skinner Butte Park. SCF volunteer Stacey Janssen hopes the party raises awareness about local agriculture and Oregon’s natural history, while spotlighting the many programs underway at the 15-year-old SCF community garden. “It’s not just a community garden,” Janssen says, “but a place to learn about Oregon history. It’s a great way to marry the land’s rich history with the needs of people today. There are a lot of hungry people in this neighborhood.” Try the hops ice cream, as well as other unusual hops recipes developed by the folks at Positive Community Kitchen. The Long Hello is scheduled to perform. Also, there’ll be beer, of course.

The Heritage Hop Celebration runs 2-6pm Saturday, May 30, at Skinner City Farm. $10 suggested donation; proceeds support SCF’s next project, the Heritage Demonstration Garden.

It’s more fun to emote. LA-based singer-songwriter Meg Myers says she wants to “make people not afraid to feel.” And she’s on the right track. The pop melodies backing songs like 2013’s “Heart Heart Head” lull the casual listener into a false sense of security. At first you might be like, “Yeah, I’ve been here before. This sounds familiar to me.” Myers then swerves violently into some wild and scary territory. Her raw, guttural screaming lets you know there’s still some unresolved torment at the core of this otherwise pleasant number. “It’s kind of animalistic when I sing that song live,” she says. “I can really let myself feel the loneliness and pain I was experiencing when I wrote it, and just let it out.” 

With openers Wild Party, Meg Myers lays it on the line Wednesday night at WOW Hall. $12 in advance, $14 at the door. — Ben Ricker

If Jean-Paul Sartre wrote an episode of the Twilight Zone directed by David Lynch, it might look something like Two Doors, a new two-person play by Eugene writer Amber Taylor. Claustrophobic and creepy, the play turns a romantic endgame into a kind of existential thriller that combines elements of horror and the supernatural. Taylor, who also directs and co-stars with Daniel Williams in the plays, says Two Doors is about the anxiety that arises when a seemingly safe place — figuratively or literally — becomes more and more dangerous. “Mostly, it’s about impossible relationship dynamics,” she says, “where not only do you let in a person only to find out they’ve become horrible, but you’ve become a horrible person in the process as well — a person that you don’t want to be.” The agoraphobic hell Taylor wrests from this scenario is at once prosaic and alarming, and it leads to a reckoning that is swift, surreal and alarming. “Panic in general is such an interesting topic for a thriller, because it’s basically raw fear and it’s unnamable,” she says. “It has no face.”

Two Doors plays 9pm Thursday & Friday, May 28-29, at Blairally Vintage Arcade, 245 Blair Blvd.; $5 suggested donation. — Rick Levin

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!
