KOCF Halloween Hullabaloo: Sol Seed, Steel Wool, Henry Holden
October 15 • 7:00 pm• $5 – $25
On Saturday, October 27, 92.5 FM KOCF and the Oregon Country Fair proudly host the 1st Annual Halloween Hullabaloo at the WOW Hall featuring music by Sol Seed, Steel Wool and Henry Holden, a costume contest and raffle. This event is a fundraiser for community radio KOCF and the Jill Heiman Vision Fund.
It’s hard to believe 50 years will have passed since the very first Oregon Country Fair in 1969. What started out as a benefit for an alternative school has, through the years, established a rich and varied history of alternative arts, educational opportunities, land stewardship and philanthropy throughout Lane County. The Oregon Country Fair creates events and experiences that nourish the spirit, explore living artfully and authentically on Earth, and transform culture in magical, joyous and healthy ways. That being said, an anniversary celebration is in order, a big celebration. What better way to celebrate the Fair’s original autumnal event than with a Halloween Ball! KOCF Program Director Andy Goldfinger will emcee and preside over the festivities. He will be joined by a crack panel of judges for the costume contest, including KOCF deejays, community leaders and other dignitaries. There will also be a raffle to benefit the Fair’s philanthropic Jill Heiman Vision Fund.
Eugene reggae/fusion band Sol Seed brings a distinct sound combining elements of rock, hip-hop, soul, world music and psychedelic jam with a regae foundation to form a positive musical fusion of their own. With through-provoking lyrics, infectious grooves and high-energy live performances, Sol Seed creates an unforgettable experience.
Steel Wool plays acoustic rock originals that sound like classics. Featuring Tim Mueller as songwriter, lead vocalist and guitar player; TR Kelley (Babes with Axes) on bass and vocals, Nel Applegate (Mudzidzi) on mbira, djembe, percussion and vocals, and Randy Hamme (Raventones) on drums, this Eugene band moves the heart and soul with stories of truth and joy and love and loss, and catches fire with three part harmonies, the haunting mbira, inventive bass lines, danceable grooves and world beat percussion.
Doors open at 7:00 pm and admission is on a sliding scale, $5 to $25 at the door. The WOW Hall is located at 291 W. 8th Ave. (the corner of 8th and Lincoln in Eugene) and is open for all ages. Adult refreshments are available downstairs. For more information please call 541-687-2746.
