See new work by Jud Turner like “Navadurga,” a skeleton mandala, at the New Zone Gallery’s “One Night Extravaganza” 7 pm Saturday, Nov. 16, — part of the Life in the Age of Steampunk exhibit; $10 adv., $12 door. Steampunk costumes encouraged. Also on display is the 500-pound steel “mech walker” by Archive Designs. This will be a good warm-up for Turner, who joins the Steampunk Exhibition at the Seoul Arts Center in South Korea March 2014.

 

The Squidling Brothers Circus Sideshow is coming to town. Led by Philadelphia-based brothers “Matterz Squidling” and “Jelly Boy the Clown,” the sideshow consists of sword swallowing, Roc Roc It (The World’s Only Inflatable Boy) and a dude who lets you cram staples into his skin. This isn’t your grandparent’s sideshow; heck, it isn’t even your grandkid’s, but it’s shock at its highest value. Experience the marriage between entertainment and the bizarre at the Old Whiteaker Firehouse 9 pm Saturday, Nov. 16; $8 (includes beer ticket).

 

Made in Eugene: The Redoux Parlour and Grrrlz Rock come together to bring you a night of local men and women’s fashion for “Launch: A Fashion Show and Soiree” with performances by The Red Raven Follies and The Whiskey Chasers 5-9 pm Wednesday, Nov. 20, at Territorial Vineyards (907 W. 3rd St.); $7 adv., $10 door and $50 for VIP tickets (gets you front row seats, drink tokens and a meet-and-greet with designers and models). Proceeds go to benefit the upcoming Silver Lining Garment Production House. See designs from Sweet Skins, Sew Fresh, Stitches by V, Mitra Chester, Kendra Grace, Taylor Made and Sparkle Glitter Glow.  Laura Lee Laroux will be presenting her men’s line for Revivall Clothing, featuring Western snap-up vests made from upcycled sleeping bags, wool Western snap-front shirts and wool overalls. “I’m trying to perfect a Western snap-up shirt,” Laroux says.
