Night on the Town – SATURDAY –
Game day Saturday! Hooray! And welcome ESPN and their crew! Lots of new folks to our Emerald City tonight! With tonight’s game a home game and the betting line favoring the Ducks by 15 points, you will want to party tonight afterwards.
If you don’t have a ticket you can still catch the game at Goodtimes, Quakers, Sam’s Place, The SideBar, Prime Time, or even Whiskey River Ranch just to name a few. At the Whiskey River Ranch,” if on a kick-off Oregon returns for a TD somebody wins $1000. They give out tickets to everyone in the bar!” Could be kinda cool winning an easy $1000 tonight! I’d make sure to get there early to get a good seat.
Thankfully, like usual, we have some pretty entertaining music to hear tonight. The female fronted band, The Dead Americans are headlining at Luckey’s tonight. Fronted by Kyra Kelly with guitarist Zach Johnson this five piece create unique punk, metal, rock songs rich in social commentaries and haunting harmonies. They are playing with Hot Drama!. Hot Drama! is a riot. I love this trio with their rich flavor of raunch-rock-n-roll. Their songs Boyfriend and No Brainer sound so much like early Blondie. Besides, defining themselves as gossip rock … well, that’s simply brilliant.
If you’re in the mood for some entertainment of a completely different ilk, than, make your way over to John Henry’s. Tonight kicks off their G.L.A.M’s first bi-monthly dance party. Now, each first and third Saturday you can shake your groove thang. This should be a ball! If you feel like dressing up then, come dressed to impress. Scheduled performances tonight are by Diva Simone Slaughter, Karress Ann Slaughter, and Vegas Platinum who all have some “pretty amazing” things in store for tonight… hmmm… wonder what THAT could be??? It will be terrific to get some good make-up hints from these gals as well as maybe the hook up on a good pair of boots! These gals put me to shame in the make-up department! Shazam!
Where else in town can you check out “The G.L.A.M. Squad” on the stage shaking their backside for your viewing pleasure?
And in case you are one of the few folks who’ve not heard about the new WILL CALL feature on Eugene Daily News, we’ve got your hook up to free shows. This week we’ve got tickets the Thursday night show at the WOW Hall with The Head and the Heart, Thao with the Get Down Stay Down, and Lemolo. Also a free pair of tickets to the Sunday night show Passafire with Tatanka. Check it out here.
Well, supposed I better get to reading the hate blog that’s going around about me that I was just notified of this morning. Now, THAT is some gut-busting entertainment! Where the hell is my shot glass? I’m sure it’s 5 o’clock somewhere!
I will see you out there! GO DUCKS!
