Out of Town 8/21 - 8/29 


friday 23

Trek in the Park

Atomic Arts bring Portlanders aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise (actually a makeshift stage in the park) to boldly go where no audience has gone before! A live rendition of the classic 1967 Trek episode "The Trouble With Tribbles," a definitive episode of the original "Star Trek" the original series and the first professional work of the prolific science-fiction writer David Gerrold. Yes, there are Klingons, yes, there are space stations to protect and yes, there are tiny furry creatures that look like dirty mops and multiply like gremlins! Tell Captain Kirk to stop getting them wet and feeding them after midnight! Cathedral Park. 5 pm. Free.

sunday 25


Pinback's Armistead Burwell Smith IV and Rob Crow are known for their blocky, metronomic progressive rock. Their dual guitar lines are puzzle pieces, interlocking guitar parts devoid of reverb that sometimes verge on robotic until you realize that Crow is singing a heartfelt song to his dying goldfish or lamenting heroin addiction. 8:30 pm. Wonder Ballroom. $16-18.


friday 23-monday 2

Oregon State Fair

Ferris wheels, cloying cotton candy, puffy elephant ears, mind-numbing livestock shows, styrofoam-stuffed teddy bear prizes, foot-long hot dogs and musical artists far past their prime taking a break from their casino tours. '70s arena rockers REO Speedwagon and C&W ballad singer Martina McBride perform. State Fair and Expo Center. $11.


friday 23-sunday 25

Eugene Celebration

Like a three-day Eugene Saturday market that takes over the whole town, Eugene Celebration is a joyful fete of all things, well, hippy. The festival now hosts film events at the Bijou Theater, Sustainability Village where the earth-minded discuss sustainable lifestyle choices, a parade on Saturday morning that crowns the visually lovely but grossly named "Slug Queen," and loads of live music—local acts like the Alder Street All-Stars and touring groups like Seattle soul-rockers Pickwick, folk sisters the Shook Twins and Pinback (see write up to the left). Downtown Eugene. Free.
