Anyone who stumble-bumbled into the Ferns’ late night set at Uncle Brad’s Hidden Stage during this year’s Whiteaker Block Party was treated to one of those rare moments of spontaneously generated greatness, as this guitar-driven rock trio ravaged their way through a hazy, sloppy, glorious set of fuzzy power-pop that found a teetering balance between the lumbering fuck-its of Crazy Horse and the sparky snark of the Buzzcocks. You had to be there, but if you weren’t, you can be at Sam Bond’s when Ferns take the stage for a post-Thanksgiving show on Friday, joined by Mood Area 52 and a reunited (again) Birdie Jo.

Ferns, Mood Area 52 & Birdie Jo play 9:30pm Friday, Nov. 28, at Sam Bond’s Garage; $5. — Rick Levin

Sure, perennial holiday burnout makes us jaded about all those ubiquitous seasonal signifiers, and yet no matter how you think you feel about Frank Capra’s classic film, you’ve gotta nod that few things herald the advent of ye old Yule like It’s a Wonderful Life, which, upon annual rewatching, is always darker and deeper and less sentimentally stupid than we remember, and more relevant. Fans of the movie are in for a treat Wednesday when the UO hosts a screening of the flick as well as a special viewing of the original manuscript for Philip Van Doren Stern’s short story, “The Greatest Gift,” which inspired the movie and which is housed in the college’s archives among Stern’s papers.

A free viewing of the original manuscript of “The Greatest Gift” takes place at 6pm Wednesday, Dec. 3, followed by remarks from local writer Bob Welch at 6:30pm and a 7pm screening of It’s a Wonderful Life, all at 180 Prince Lucien Campbell Hall on the UO Campus.

After winning several national slam poetry competitions and becoming one of the few white people to be featured on HBO’s “Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry,” skinny little George Watsky recently has made his way from spoken-word poetry to alternative hip hop, and the transition’s been surprisingly smooth. Having always possessed a singular skill for reciting sharp-witted lyrics at lighting speed, Watsky (who now goes by his last name only) has retained his social consciousness-driven lyricism while upping his rhythmic game and adding empowering background vocals. The result, though definitely in the category of “white-boy rap,” is catchy and lovably wholesome. His popular single “Never Let It Die” is an anti-war anthem, though of course the lyrics are all-but-too-quick to decipher. Even so, Watsky is proof of the phenomenon that rap and poetry are ever more related, and it’ll be interesting, to say the least, to see where his career goes from here.

Watsky performs with producer/rapper friends Anderson.Paak and Kyle 9pm Sunday, Nov. 30, at WOW Hall; $13 adv., $15 door. — Isabel Zacharias

The personality of Portland pop-influenced trio Rocket 3 can be pretty much summed up by its Facebook page description: “Rocket 3 wants to rock with you.” Immediately and innocently lovable, this threesome delivers straightforward, infectious tunes played with slight guitar fuzz, tight drum fills and light, dreamy vocals. Each member of the band is a Midwest native, which can be heard in the band’s guitar-rock simplicity, though its more free-associated, psychedelic sounds are distinctly Pacific Northwest. Rocket 3 has played together for several years, but the group’s debut album, Burn, was just released Nov. 4. And now they’re ready to celebrate — you won’t want to miss the release show for Burn, happening this week as part of the Grrrlz Rock concert series.

Rocket 3 plays 6pm Friday, Nov. 21, at the WOW Hall; $8 adv., $10 door. — Isabel Zacharias

It’s Thanksgiving night: You’re stuffed with stuffing and yucky with yams, and that chatty, neurotic extended family of dingbats and drunks and drama queens you so love has packed up and gone home, not to return till Christmas inaugurates another symptomatic round of obligatory togetherness. What to do? Just pour yourself a cup of yuletide cheer and flip on KLCC’s holiday show, “Thanksgiving Gypsy Swing,” three hours of hot jazz featuring the inimitable stylings of Manouche Romani guitar great Django Reinhardt and his friend, violinist Stephane Grappelli, who together founded the legendary Quintette du Hot Club de France, one of the most influential jazz combos of all time. Dig it, pilgrim.

“Thanksgiving Gypsy Swing” plays 9-midnight Thursday, Nov. 27, on radio-free KLCC 89.7 FM.

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!

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.
