Ab-Soul, best known thus far for his collaborations with Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller and the rest of the California rap crew Black Hippy, has finally released a full-length that should solidify him as a stand-alone act. These Days, an all-too-listenable album with a lyrical fearlessness capable of referencing Joseph Kony and Alexander McQueen in the same verse, achieves a classic gangsta-rap aggression similar to A$AP Ferg while maintaining the understated, cleverly-sampled beat-smithing of Black Hippy. The album is dotted with unexpected, smartly chosen cameos from the likes of SZA, Rick Ross and Delusional Thomas. Sadly, it’s doubtful Ross himself will show up to spit his verse when Ab-Soul plays WOW Hall this Friday, but it’s shaping up to be a rowdy time nonetheless. 

Ab-Soul plays with Bas and Earthgang 9pm Friday, Oct. 17, at WOW Hall; $18 adv., $20 door.

Whatever it means to be a “world famous” belly dancer, this woman is it: Sharon Kihara, originally from Eugene, is sought after year-round for performances and workshops across the globe. Her specific style, known as “tribal fusion,” is a modern form combining movement elements from several different folkloric and classical styles, including hip hop, flamenco and traditional Egyptian dance. This Saturday, Oct. 18, Kihara returns to Eugene to teach two dance workshops and perform at the Fall Festival of the Middle Eastern Dance Guild of Eugene (MEDGE). Admission to the all-day festival, which takes place at Cozmic and will feature craft vendors and live music, is $10, and this includes admission to the 8:30pm show (also at Cozmic) featuring a performance by Kihara. The Saturday workshops will be held at Staver Dance Sport. To check out workshop fees and registration, see http://medge.org/fa2014/.

The number of oil trains rolling through Oregon — including those carrying the more volatile tar sands crude — is on the rise, and here in Eugene we still don’t know how many gallons of oil are passing through town. Railroads must notify states about the volume, frequency and routes of trains carrying 1 million or more gallons of Bakken crude (about 35 cars). The trains coming through Eugene carry a lot of oil, but not necessarily the 35 cars it takes to trigger a notification. So how do we find out more about what is passing through our town? A grassroots oil train count kicks off Friday, Oct. 20, and runs through Oct. 27. Pro-tip: There’s an app for everything, including oil trains. Train cars carrying hazardous material have a diamond-shaped placard, on them with a 4-digit UN number. If there is no placard the train car is empty. The number 1267 designates crude oil and there is a UN Number app for your smartphone that will tell you what’s in all of those marked cars. For the Facebook event go to wkly.ws/1ts.

Oil Train Count: Keeping an Eye on Hazards on Wheels is 5pm Monday, Oct. 20; meet at 150 Van Buren St.; info at tenofplates@gmail.com. FREE.

There’s not really much that qualifies Olympic runner Nick Symmonds to write an autobiography and expect people to care, unless we’re underestimating the fan-girl capacity of run-or-die track junkies (many of whom call Eugene home). In any case, one of the selling points first mentioned on the sleeve of Symmonds’ tell-all is that he “talks about dating Paris Hilton” which, along with the author’s so-called “contentious” relationship with Nike and strong feelings of perceived injustice about certain track and field regulations, end up making his book rather tempting after all. Symmonds will be signing copies of Life Outside the Oval Office: the Track Less Traveled at 7:45pm Friday, Oct. 17, at the City Hall Fountain Plaza in Springfield. And in case an autobiography book tour signing weren’t masturbatory enough, the event is intentionally scheduled to begin just after the running of the 3rd Annual Nick Symmonds 800.

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.
