Calendar Features

Throughout the week, Beatles fans from all across the universe are celebrating George Harrison’s would-be 72nd birthday. In L.A., a George Harrison tree recently destroyed by, ironically, beetles is being replanted. To celebrate Harrison’s birthday in Eugene, join Maya Love — the Harrison, Lennon and Dylan cover band named after Harrison’s 1974 tune — Saturday at Cozmic, along with another local band, Bindaas, which will play a set of sitar tabla music to commemorate Harrison’s friendship with Indian musician Ravi Shankar. Proceeds will benefit the St. Vincent de Paul Egan Warming Centers, which give homeless people a place to sleep November to March, when the weather gets extremely cold.

The George Harrison Birthday Tribute starts 7 pm Saturday, Feb. 28, at Cozmic, 199 8th Ave.; $10-$15 suggested donation at the door for Egan Warming Centers.

The recent release of the film adaptation of E.L. James gazillion-selling erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey has left people with at least 50 different opinions about BDSM (bondage/discipline/sadomasochism), with public reaction to the movie/book ranging from shocked to turned-on to just plain confused. Portland-based sex educator Mollena Williams — who calls herself an award-winning “executive pervert” and “delicate, trembling flower of submission” – visits Eugene on Thursday, Feb. 26, to clear up this grey area. Williams has been active in the BDSM scene for more than 20 years, and her resume is extensive, including everything from co-hosting San Francisco’s Queer Open Mic to co-authoring a book and educating universities (including the Ivies) about kink, leather and dispelling the myths and misconceptions surrounding all things bound and ball-gagged. 

Mollena Williams talks about how “Kink Rules: How BDSM Can Make The World a Hotter, Safer, Sexier Place” 7 pm Thursday, Feb. 26, in 100 Willamette Hall on the UO campus; 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.
