The three Garza brothers who make up the Texas-based Los Lonely Boys like to call their sound Texican Rock ‘n’ Roll. And while it’s true that many Mexico-U.S. border states breed a certain band style that spans the two cultures, these Boys owe more to Nashville’s Southern-fried Steak Rock than to influences south of Laredo. But no matter; like many of this year’s Cuthbert headliners, the Boys have been part of charity albums helping out causes from Darfur to Amnesty International, so they continue the tradition of putting the music where it matters. Guitar virtuousos (oh how we grow weary of that label!) Jonny Lang and Ehren Ebbage round out the bill. See Tuesday Calendar.

Unlike the Country Fair, the only thing you’ll see buck naked at the Lane County Fair is pink, four-legged, enjoys a good mud bath and goes oink oink. Get ready for some honest-to-goodness all-Alaskan pig racing, curling demos, bingo tournaments, carny booths, mechanical bull-riding and roller derby provided by the Emerald City RollerGirls. Oh, and don’t forget the real draw here: those loopy, crazy, zany carnival rides that will make you lose your lunch, lose your spare change and, just maybe, lose yourself in child-like thrills. On Sunday, check out a stellar lineup of Eugene’s best Latin bands: Los Mex Pistols del Norte, Organizacion Oaxaca and Caliente. Then, of course, there’s the county-fair-approved main stage lineup of REO Speedwagon, Charlie Daniels Band, Satin Love Orchestra and Clay Walker (pictured). See Tuesday Calendar.

It’s time to celebrate The Gay! OK, yes, we know LGBT Pride in normal cities (and even small towns) takes place in June, which is Pride Month, but you know that unique Eugene thing: We’re different. Plus, we’re too busy at the pride celebrations of the city to the north in June. So: We’re later, we’re smaller, but we’re still proud. Start off with a Pride Kickoff Dance at the Indigo District on Aug. 10, then get ready to march on Aug. 11 at 11 am from 8th and Oak (wear your most fabulous gear, dahlings, to impress the Saturday Market peeps) to Alton Baker Park, where festivities like water fights, volleyball and performances from Katastrophe, Nicole Sangsuree and Androgene (pictured), among others, highlight the day. Vendors! Nonprofits! Rainbow everything! Don’t forget to save some fabulosity for the White Party at Club Pynk (AKA the Red Lion Inn) for adults and the After Pride Youth Dance at the Amazon Community Center for those under 21. See Friday and Saturday Calendars.

A queen will be crowned this Saturday eve, and it’s not gonna be pretty. The Society for the Legitimization of the Ubiquitous Gastropod (S.L.U.G.) Queen Competition and Coronation enters its silver jubilee of 25 years. Past S.L.U.G. queens will preside over the ceremonies while celebrity judges Catherine and Cheryl Reinhart (co-owners of Sweet Life) and KLCC’s Pete Lavelle will judge this slimy, gooey pageant of would-be S.L.U.G. queens. Organizers suggest bringing your own chair for optimum viewing at Broadway Plaza (and bring a tissue for the runner-up). As for the contestants, who will be judged on costume, a three-minute talent act and their answer to an an unrelated question, 2003 Queen Irspira suggests, “bribe early and bribe often.” See Saturday Calendar.
