Calendar Features

Most folks might let DÍa de los Muertos pass by unnoticed, but the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art is celebrating this beautiful, deathly holiday in style. Every night of this four-day annual celebration will feature live music from local groups, dancing and Spanish poetry recitation, accompanied by a special exhibition of works by contemporary artists from Guanajuato, Mexico (Octavio Bajonero’s untitled woodblock print, pictured). A traditional Day of the Dead ofrenda will be constructed by local students as well, on view for the duration of the celebration. The event, co-sponsored by MEChA de UO, Adelante SÍ, el INstituto de Cultura de Guanajuato and el Instituto Estatal del Migrante Guanajuatense y sus familias, will run Oct. 29 through Nov. 2 at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art.

Anyone who participated in last year’s 72-Hour Horror Film Competition hosted by Bijou Metro and the Eugene Film Society (EFS), in which amateur and professional filmmakers vied to create a winning three-minute scary movie in just three days, can attest to the heady thrill of writing, directing and editing a short movie on the fly. On Thursday, Oct. 23, folks interested in all things cinematic are urged to attend this year’s EFS 72-Hour Horror Film Competition Kick-Off, a meet-and-greet where you can pitch a script, talk movies or perhaps be recruited to act in a spooky movie or splatter flick.

Come on down and hobnob with local film types (including EW’s Rick Levin, director of 2013 competition entry La Petite Mort, pictured) at the EFS kick-off party 5-8pm Thursday, Oct. 23, at Sam Bond’s Brewing Co., 540 E. 8th Ave., where competing filmmakers will be given their mandated line of dialogue and prop for their short horror film.

Nothing signals the damp, decomposing arrival of autumn in Eugene like Mount Pisgah Arboretum’s Mushroom Festival, an annual celebration of shrooms and the gloriously deciduous season in which they flourish. This Sunday marks the 33rd year this fungi fest — presented in conjunction with Lane Community College and the Cascade Mycological Society — has been sprouting up at Pisgah, so come and take full advantage of the activities which include hay rides, guided nature walks, crafts, live music, a scarecrow contest, plenty of food vendors and, or course, exhibits of more than 350 mushrooms with experts on hand to tell you all about ‘em.

Mount Pisgah Arboretum’s Mushroom Festival takes place 10am-5pm Sunday, Oct. 26, at Mount Pisgah Arboretum at Howard Buford County Park off Seavy Loop Road, though you can park for free and take a free shuttle from Civic Stadium; admission is $8, and free for kids under 12.

Axe & Fiddle in Cottage Grove consistently lands great musical acts, and the Oct. 23 billing of Sean Rowe is this week’s big score. With his bluesy, soulful compositions and earthy baritone, Rowe fits solidly inside a tradition of American pop ranging from the classic R&B of Marvin Gaye to the neo-Tin Pan Alley stomp of Tom Waits. His latest album, Madman, presents a cycle of songs that are upbeat and deep at once, propelled by strong rhythms and held together by a spirit of exuberant creativity grounded in roots balladry. As No Depression magazine put it: “Man, that voice.”

Sean Rowe plays with Jeffrey Martin 8:30pm Thursday, Oct. 23, at Axe & Fiddle, 657 E. Main St., Cottage Grove; $8.

Dynamic fine-art photographer and graphic artist Tracy Sydor is making waves throughout Eugene, and not just in the art scene. The Outsiders Ball, her upcoming costume-optional art show and party, is doubling as a benefit for Womenspace; rather than charging an entry fee, Sydor is asking that guests offer winter clothing donations to this local foundation providing aid to survivors of intimate partner violence. A survivor of domestic violence herself, Sydor feels strongly about advocating for fellow victims. “The bands aren’t making any money, I’m not making any money — pretty much no one is making any money off of this,” said Sydor. “I’m just doing this to showcase really talented artists who need some exposure, and attached to the event, I really wanted to do something for Womenspace.” 

The Outsiders Ball, featuring 11 local artists of varying media, kicks off at 7pm Saturday, Oct. 25, at Sydor’s studio, Digital Latte Photography, 1000 S. Bertelson. Music by the Egotones and Red Rangers. BYOB and BYOCADBTCTWI (bring your own costume and don’t be too cool to wear it).

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. 

 

Some examples are:

Gatherings Eugene Astronomical Society, star party, 7:30pm, College Hill Reservoir, 24th & Lawrence. FREE.
