BJ here, with your “Where, When and Whats Happening” for this weekend and hoping you all had a great week.
I want to start off by thanking you for taking the time to read and hopefully enjoy my column, also to ask for some input. What would you like to know about for your weekend? Leave me a comment below or on Facebook, and we’ll see if we can’t help you enjoy your weekend a little more.
As you can see by the photo above, my grandaughter Evelyn just can’t control her excitement about this weekends happenings, so lets get to it:
This week I’m starting with a little pub and music venue 20 minutes south of Eugene called The Axe and Fiddle. 657 E. Main, Cottage Grove, Friday Oct. 3rd starting at 8:30pm all 3 nights. This weekend its going to be cinematic folk music with The Breaking Yard (free) followed on Saturday the 4th by the Doo-Wap twang thang with Melissa Ruth & the Likely Stories ($5) and Sunday the 5th Indie rock from Brenda Xu (free). While there you might want to try something off their “Menu of Good Eatin’ ” – it’s good. (late night menu available too).
Get ready to let go of all your worries at The Cuthbert Amphitheaters “Life in Color” Unleash tour on Saturday the 4th starting at 6pm (16 and over). It’s the worlds largest paint party with stilt walkers, aerial acts and fire shows; this high energy, art, dance and paint show, according to the “Life in Color” website , “…will transport fans to the ultimate, mind blowing, head bumping and heart pumping experience!” Come join in the fun!
At Luckeys Club in Eugene starting at 10 pm each night, $5 at the door – on Friday The Sugar Beets, americana pop soulgrass. Saturday, its a GLAM night dance party, glitter up and GLAM out! Just remember every Sunday night at Luckeys Club is Eugenes longest running Burlesque. The Broadway Revue Burlesque Show. Check it out.
Headed toward the coast and feeling a little lucky? (Sublimal message) you’ll find Mr. Frown at the Three Rivers Casino this weekend, Oct. 3rd & 4th.
Also at the Mill casino’s Wharehouse101 both Friday and Saturday is the “Powerhouse Party Band” The Insensitives.
At the Whiskey River Ranch Fri. Oct. 3rd and Sat. Oct.4th its modern country music with Bump in The Road, $7 to get in, doors open at 7pm, show starts at 9pm
One of my Friday and/or Saturday night plans is to check out the classic rock band No Way Out at the Mohawk Tavern in Springfield. If you happen to run into me there don’t forget to say hi! Oh yeah and don’t forget to eat some fries!
Last but not least on BJ’s Where when and what for this first Friday (the 3rd) in Oct. is the big rock show by the one & only local band: Dragstrip Superstar! With Shane Thornton and Derek Zane (Guitar/vocals), Jeff Blaser(Bass) and Scott Johansen(drums) performing live for your entertainment at Happy Hours bar on River Rd. in Eugene. Yes, their slogan is: “Its ok to be amazed!” I know I will.
So with that, farewell till next week, and be safe.
