In the 70s, psychotherapist Arthur Janov argued the only way through childhood trauma is to relive it — to make it real again while expelling it from the central nervous system through unrestrained screaming, hysteria and violence. This idea, known as Primal Therapy, or Primal Scream Therapy, seems to apply to Bay Area band Deafheaven, stopping by Eugene in support of 2015’s New Bermuda. Metal’s jackhammer to the frontal lobe sits alongside the more melancholy, meditative beauty of bands like The Cure, or other bands that commonly fall under the loose rock genre known as shoegaze. Deafheaven is interested in pain as a means of release, forcing an audience to reexamine their own expectation of music itself. Vocalist George Clarke has a dragon-like scream, never carrying melody but instead bubbling like lava. And overall Deafheaven is informed but never restricted by a single style’s diktat, whether that style is metal, post rock or something else entirely, something that must be pulled up from deep within our own set of experiences.

Deafheaven plays with This Will Destroy You and Emma Ruth Rundle at 8 pm Monday, March 27, at WOW Hall; $16 advance, $18 door, All-ages. — Will Kennedy

A group of 12 local artists are coming together to do an art show and benefit called Friends with Heart for the Community Veterinary Center (CVC). CVC is a nonprofit that provides veterinary services for the pets of low-income individuals. All the money from this event will go to CVC so it can build a surgical facility. At the moment, CVC is sending pets in need of surgery to for-profit veterinarians and helping their customers pay for the costs, which is expensive. If they are able to build the surgical facility, CVC will be able to provide a much wider range of services for needy pets that their owners might not be able to afford otherwise. “This is our eighth year getting together and selling artwork to benefit a non-profit,” Sue Hunnel, a local glass artist, says. Hunnel says that artwork at the show will range from $5 to $300 and comes in a wide variety of mediums like jewelry, glass, wood, fabric, paintings, photography, pottery and more. There will also be a memorial print sale of Michael DiBietto’s work —an artist who passed away in December after eight years of being with the show. “Some of these people don’t show very often,” Hunnel says. Alongside the artwork there will be a raffle to benefit CVC. Prizes include gift cards from community businesses and artwork. The event will be two days long and includes music and complimentary refreshments.

Friends with Heart will take place from 5-8 pm Friday, March 24, and from 12-8 pm Saturday, March 25, at the Veterans Memorial Building. FREE. — Jordan Rich

Now that the weather is getting nicer, many Eugeneans are pulling out their bikes and starting to commute the green way. But if your buns are sore or knees are creaking with every stroke of the pedal, you may want to go to the Getting Fit to Be Fit bicycle fitting clinic with Jay Loew. Loew is a licensed body geometry fit expert who has performed hundreds of fittings. He hopes his free clinic will help dispel some of the misinformation surrounding bike fittings. “I’m a bicycle tailor,” he says, and “the fitting is kind of like the tailoring.” An unfit bike can cause joint problems and make bicycling painful. “Rather than the person adapting to the bicycle we make sure that the bicycle is adapted to the person.” Though attendees won’t get their bikes fit at the clinic, they’ll get to see a demonstration and learn what a fitting can or can’t do for them. There will be snacks and juice, and attendees get a discount if they sign up for a fitting. “They’ll be getting accurate information and they can ask as many questions as they want,” Loew says. A fitting typically costs $250 plus parts and takes up to three hours. Loew hopes to help more people join the sport of bicycling. “Your bike doesn’t have to hurt when you ride.” 

Getting Fit to Be Fit with Jay Loew will take place from 2-4 pm on Sunday, March 26, at Collins Bike Shop, 60 E. 11th Ave. FREE. — Kelly Kenoyer
