It’s getting really cold outside. Instead of visiting an air-conditioned movie theater, you should check out the local playhouses. I’m sure it’s warmer, and you get to see the actors live. There aren’t any new plays debuting this week but I’ll remind you about some that are still in production, including a few that will be ending this week.
This has to be the busiest Friday night ever, what with the Pack 12 Championship and Chris Robinson Brotherhood in town. There’s plenty of other choices as well in our little hamlet; something for every taste in music and venue. Let’s get out into the night and find the hot spots, no excuses.
We’re getting closer and closer to Christmas, and as a result, a number of new plays are debuting before the end of the year. At the professional playhouses, two new plays debut while two more are still running. At the high school level, two plays from the work of legendary playwrights begin.
One new drama about family (both on and offscreen) debuts at the Bijou this week, and two new films open at David Minor: a stoner comedy involving pizza, explosives and drug dealers, and another film about a well-intentioned idiot.
The Ducks must have a direct line to the Weather Goddess to order up a day like this for the Civil War. Fans will be gathered in every sports bar in town to watch the action and the beer will flow like the McKenzie after all the recent rain. After last week’s upset, we all need to show our Ducks a little extra love, just like the Weather Goddess. When it’s all over, get out and share the glory or the grief, which ever way it goes. There’s music out there to soothe the soul, so no excuses people.
The holiday has officially started and we enter into the time of more family gatherings than is healthy for some of us. None the less, there is no time like the day after the national turkey feast to get out and find some anonymous comfort in a dimly lit club filled with mind bending music.
It’s a slow week in local theater. Many productions ended last week and as you can imagine, everyone is focused on stuffing their faces with turkey, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie. But not everyone is taking a break this week…
It’s Thanksgiving week so not a whole lot of new stuff debuting at your local cinemas. The Bijou has a French drama opening, while David Minor debuts a summer blockbuster on Friday.
Football fans will be gathering all over town to watch the Ducks kick some USC butt tonight. Afterwards I’ll be all revved and up and there’s got to be someplace to blow it off. Oh yes, the music scene is ready to help with some select tidbits to help burn off the euphoria of a hometown win.
It’s cold. It’s raining and hell, I’ve even seen a little snow spitting out there. Is there any place warm where a wild child can let loose and find a little joy in Eugene tonight? Thankfully, yes and even better, there are choices. So get ready folks, time’s a wasting.
