The EMU's Visual Arts Team is excited to welcome Oregon artist Betty LaDuke's latest exhibit, on view for the first time ever: Border Lands 2019, A Sketchbook Journey. On view Summer 2019 in the Aperture Gallery.

Artist Statement: Border Lands 2019, A Sketchbook Journey is an experience on both sides of the Arizona and Mexico borders. Migrants and asylum seekers, individuals and families from Mexico and Central America desperately seek the American Dream of safety and opportunity. The sketches are amplified with the text to tell their story as well as the humanitarian aid migrants receive from several nonprofit organizations, including the Samaritans, Humane Borders, No More Deaths, Kino Border Initiative, and the Border Community Alliance. The Sisters of Notre Dame in Douglas, Arizona, have a presence in the border lands providing their hospitality to all who hunger, thirst, and are in need of compassion. The goal of all these groups is building bridges, not walls. As an artist, the sketchbook is my primary means for recording first-hand expericence and events. Later, in my studio, I transform select sketches into wood panels. These social justice panels frequently become circulating exhibitions at educational institutions and community art centers, and permanent public installations.

Murshed Summer: Student Artists in Our Galleries Artist statement

My recent artwork is a series of current student and alumni artists from the University of Oregon who also exhibited art in the Erb Memorial Union's galleries. I painted portraits of them with their art; in the background of each portrait I honored their work that was exhibited in one of the EMU’s two galleries: the Adell McMillan Gallery and the Aperture Gallery.  I enjoyed the process of doing this because it was challenging due to researching what their artwork looks like, how they do it, and how they got there. They each have their own inspiring story, and it was an honor to paint them. Student and alumni artists featured in this exhibit include: Mohamed Murshed (self-portrait) and Ugo Akabike, Daniela Cardenas-Riumallo, Elexus Greene, Polly Irungu, Jasmine Jackson, Jenny Kroik, Meerah Powell, Grace Kwon, Anne Magratten, Sophie Navarro, Sergio B. Sanchez, Allison Shukis, Mary Vertulfo, and Andrew Young. Biography

My name is Mohamed Murshed, I was born and raised in Sana’a, Yemen; it’s a country right below Saudi Arabia. In my childhood, while living with my parents and my little brother, the neighborhood was lively and full of friends and neighbors. Unfortunately, many of them died because of the civil wars that took place in Yemen and the Youth Revolution in 2011, especially the devastating civil war since 2015. I moved to the states in 2012 during the Arab Spring and saw a lot of my closest friends killed in front of me before I left. I consider myself one of the lucky ones able to escape war before it was too late for my family and me. I moved to Salem and then Eugene to enroll in school and find work. I found myself graduating with a Bachelors of Art and Technology and currently furthering my degree at the Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA). I work with paint, sculpture, video, sound, programming for art, and video games. I am interested in challenging myself and in trying things that I haven’t done before. In my art, I try to bring awareness to the issues in Yemen and find help to unpack the layers of my Trauma.

At a moment of crisis over our national identity, venerated journalist Dan Rather has emerged as a voice of reason and integrity, reflecting on—and speaking passionately about—what it means to be an American. Drawn from his collection of original essays, What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism, he speaks with hope and conviction about the principles upon which the United States was founded. Rather examines the freedoms that define us, from the vote to the press; the values that have transformed us, from empathy to inclusion to service; the institutions that sustain us, such as public education; and the traits that helped form our young country, such as the audacity to take on daunting challenges in science and medicine, As a living witness to historical change covering the world’s biggest news stories, he offers up an intimate view of history, tracing where we have been in order to help us chart a way forward and heal our bitter divisions.

DAN RATHER
LEGENDARY JOURNALIST & NEWS ANCHOR

Those who hear Dan Rather speak often say that he is one of the most extraordinary communicators of our time. With more than 60 years spent chronicling our world and nation, few can match the authority, experience, and perspective that the famed newsman brings to almost any subject. From politics, the media, current events, and our country’s most pressing issues—to inspiring words of wisdom on leadership, education, social justice, civic involvement and the importance of philanthropy, Dan Rather speaks from the heart and treats audiences to a memorable encounter with a living legend.

With a career that began in radio and is currently shaping news coverage in social media and beyond, Dan Rather has earned his place as one of the world’s most influential and respected journalists. During 44 years at CBS, including 24 years as anchor of the CBS Evening News, he interviewed every president since Eisenhower and personally covered history-making events from the Kennedy Assassination through Vietnam, Watergate, Tiananmen Square, the fall of the Berlin Wall, 9/11, and the Iraq Invasion. During this time, Rather earned a reputation as “the hardest working man in broadcast journalism” for simultaneously heading up the CBS Evening News, 48 Hours and 60 Minutes. He is the recipient of virtually every honor in broadcast journalism, including numerous Emmy Awards, several Peabody Awards and the 2012 Edward R. Murrow Lifetime Achievement Award. Currently president and CEO of News and Guts, an independent multimedia production company, Rather remains an integral part of our national conversation through television appearances, innovative reports on Facebook Live, a much-followed Twitter feed and contributions to Mashable. In January of 2018, he premiered The News with Dan Rather on the Young Turks Network. The weekly show focuses on original reporting and stories that Rather feels are not receiving the attention they deserve in mainstream media.

Rather’s best-selling book of original essays, What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism takes on the toxic political atmosphere and polarized opinions of our times with a hopeful reminder of the core ideals that all Americans share. Praised as a “tonic for our times” by USA Today, the book examines the principles that the U.S. was founded upon, the freedoms that define us, the values that have transformed us, and the traits that have sustained us. It also incorporates Rather’s decades of experience as a living witness to history, covering the biggest events and news stories of our times.

Known for humor, folksy “Ratherisms” captivating stories, and inspiring wisdom, Dan Rather’s keynotes put you in the presence of a remarkable witness to history and our times—staying with audiences long after the final applause.

|ON SALE AT THE UO TICKET OFFICE IN THE EMU|

The Oregon Psilocybin Society welcomes Paul Stamets and special guests to the Newmark Theatre. Proceeds support the campaign to educate Oregonians regarding the Psilocybin Service Initiative - a 2020 ballot initiative campaign to legalize psilocybin assisted therapy statewide (www.psi-2020.org). 

KEYNOTE SPEAKER:  PAUL STAMETS

Paul Stamets, speaker, author, mycologist, medical researcher and entrepreneur, is considered an intellectual and industry leader in fungi: habitat, medicinal use, and production. He lectures extensively to deepen the understanding and respect for the organisms that literally exist under every footstep taken on this path of life. His presentations cover a range of mushroom species and research showing how mushrooms can help the health of people and planet.

Stamets is known for his stunning, planet-healing breakthrough discoveries in mycological research — something he credits to his early, consciousness-raising experiences with psilocybin mushrooms.

His central premise is that habitats have immune systems, just like people, and mushrooms are cellular bridges between the two. Our close evolutionary relationship to fungi can be the basis for novel pairings in the microbiome that lead to greater sustainability and immune enhancement.

He sees the ancient Old Growth forests of the Pacific Northwest as a resource of incalculable value, especially in terms of its fungal genome. A dedicated hiker and explorer, his passion is to preserve and protect as many ancestral strains of mushrooms as possible from these pristine woodlands. His research is considered breakthrough by thought leaders for creating a paradigm shift for helping ecosystems worldwide.

Paul is the author of six books (including Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save The World, Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms, and Psilocybin Mushrooms of the World), he has discovered and named numerous new species of psilocybin mushrooms, and is the founder and owner of Fungi Perfecti, LLC, makers of the Host Defense Mushrooms (www.hostdefense.com) supplement line.

He has received numerous awards, including: Invention Ambassador (2014-2015) for the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the National Mycologist Award (2014) from the North American Mycological Association (NAMA), and the Gordon & Tina Wasson Award (2015) from the Mycological Society of America (MSA).

His work has entered into the mainstream of popular culture. In the latest Star Trek: Discovery series on CBS, the Science Officer is portrayed by an Astromycologist.... a Lt. Paul Stamets. Paul's work with mycelium is a central theme of this series.

Paul also plays a starring role in “Fantastic Fungi” - a groundbreaking new film by acclaimed nature cinematographer and director Louie Shwartzberg.

OPENING SPEAKER:  MARK HADEN

Mark Haden is the Executive Director of MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies) Canada and a leading advocate for a public health approach to the regulation of currently illegal drugs. Mark works with the Health Officers Council of British Columbia and published "A Public-Health-Based Vision for the Management and Regulation of Psychedelics" in the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs. Mark was awarded the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal in 2013 for drug policy reform work. He has a well-deserved reputation as an exciting speaker who continues to reshape the dialogue around drug policy and especially around psychedelics.

HOSTS: TOM AND SHERI ECKERT

Your hosts for the evening are Tom and Sheri Eckert, founders of the Oregon Psilocybin Society and architects of the PSI 2020 ballot initiative campaign to bring psilocybin assisted therapy to Oregon. They are also psychotherapists who practice in the Portland area. With a growing network of support – including a newly formed Advisory Board that includes both Stamets and Haden – the Eckerts are spreading a truth held increasingly self-evident: that the psilocybin experience, when facilitated under safe and supportive conditions, can be a life-altering gift. Oregonians may be ready to see the Eckert's carefully crafted vision become a game-changing reality in 2020.

Literary Arts is proud to present an evening with Margaret Atwood, acclaimed novelist, poet, literary critic, and activist. Join us as we celebrate the publication of The Testaments, Atwood’s hugely anticipated sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, coming September 10, 2019. Atwood will be in conversation with award-winning journalist and Oregon author Omar El Akkad.

The appearance of Atwood’s acclaimed dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale in 1985, and the current Emmy-award winning television series based on the novel, have created a cultural phenomenon. Interviewed live on stage by Omar El Akkad, the conversation will span the length of Atwood’s remarkable career, her diverse range of works, and why she has returned to her seminal story, 34 years later.

Join us for an unmissable and intimate evening with Atwood and her signature insight, humor, and intellect.

$85 tickets include a copy of The Testaments—to be distributed at the event.

Margaret Atwood, whose work has been published in thirty-five countries, is the author of more than forty books of fiction, poetry, and critical essays. In addition to The Handmaid’s Tale, her novels include Cat’s Eye, short-listed for the 1989 Booker Prize; Alias Grace, which won the Giller Prize in Canada and the Premio Mondello in Italy; The Blind Assassin, winner of the 2000 Booker Prize; Oryx and Crake, short-listed for the 2003 Man Booker Prize; The Year of the Flood; and MaddAddam. She is the recipient of the Los Angeles Times Innovator’s Award, and lives in Toronto with the writer Graeme Gibson.

Omar El Akkad was born in Cairo, Egypt and grew up in Doha, Qatar until he moved to Canada with his family. He is an award-winning journalist and author who has traveled around the world to cover many of the most important news stories of the last decade. His reporting includes dispatches from the NATO-led war in Afghanistan, the military trials at Guantànamo Bay, the Arab Spring revolution in Egypt and the Black Lives Matter movement in Ferguson, Missouri. He is a recipient of Canada’s National Newspaper Award for investigative reporting and the Goff Penny Memorial Prize for Young Canadian Journalists, as well as three National Magazine Award honorable mentions. His most recent work is American War, for which he won the Oregon Book Award for Fiction. He lives in Portland, Oregon.

The Experience Hendrix Tour, the acclaimed multi-artist celebration of Jimi Hendrix’s musical genius is returning in October with a trek down the West Coast, and into Arizona, Colorado, Oklahoma and Texas. What began as a single show tribute at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2000 has blossomed into a full-fledged concert experience that has thrilled countless fans across the U.S. The tour, which the Chicago Tribune called “a testament to the legacy of the iconic guitarist,” presents a host of great artists collaborating and interpreting Hendrix’s legendary repertoire as part of a dynamic, non-stop three-hour concert experience.

The Experience Hendrix Tour offers fans a rare opportunity to see critically lauded musicians performing timeless Jimi Hendrix classics such as “Purple Haze,” “Foxey Lady,” “Voodoo Child” and “Little Wing” in a unique setting. This latest edition of the tour will feature guitar wizard Joe Satriani and the triumphant return of blues legend Buddy Guy, as well as Taj Mahal, Dweezil Zappa, Jonny Lang and Eric Johnson. Mainstays Billy Cox, Slide Brothers and Doyle Bramhall II will also be on board for the duration. Todd Park Mohr, singer/guitarist for Colorado favorites Big Head Todd & the Monsters, will make his Experience Hendrix Tour debut on October 16 at Pikes Peak Center in Colorado Springs. 

Guitarist/singer Buddy Guy’s recording career began in earnest in the 1950s when he migrated from Louisiana to be part of the burgeoning Chicago blues scene. Jimi Hendrix, whose own music is firmly rooted in the blues, was heavily influenced by the work of Guy, who is six years Hendrix’s senior. The two became friends, even sharing the stage together. This October will mark Buddy Guy’s ninth Experience Hendrix Tour. Always a crowd favorite, the polka dot-adorned 82-year-old (83 when the tour starts) is looking forward to paying tribute to his own “buddy.”

15-time Grammy Award nominee Joe Satriani, who recently came off the eastern leg of the Experience Hendrix Tour, will be back for the October 1 kickoff in Jimi’s hometown of Seattle. Notable for being the biggest-selling instrumental rock guitarist of all time, Satriani came to the forefront with the release of his 1987 solo album Surfing with the Alien. He has worked with Mick Jagger, Deep Purple, Alice Cooper, Blue Oyster Cult and the fabled Spinal Tap and is a member of rock super group Chickenfoot. In keeping with the spirit of the Experience Hendrix Tour, Satriani has formed an all-star trio especially for the occasion, calling upon bassist and vocalist dUg Pinnick from King’s X, and prolific sideman Kenny Aronoff on drums to serve as his rhythm section.

"The Experience Hendrix Tours are always so much fun,” Satriani told Billboard. “The camaraderie between all the musicians on the show is magical. I’m so excited to play some deep Hendrix tracks in a power trio setting with dUg Pinnick and Kenny Aronoff!”   

Like Buddy Guy, singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Taj Mahal knew Jimi Hendrix personally. Virtually the same age, the two had contemporaneous careers that similarly navigated the blues world and the much larger rock world. Taj Mahal has been a staple of past Experience Hendrix Tours, and has the utmost admiration for his old friend. “He [Jimi] moved the blues – the language of the music – into the future.” 

Billy Cox, bassist for both Jimi Hendrix’s Band of Gypsys and the Jimi Hendrix Experience, has been the backbone of the tour since its inception, providing a spiritual connection between the past and present. Rounding out the lineup are drummer and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Chris Layton of Steve Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, as well as Mato Nanji of Indigenous, Henri Brown and bassist Kevin McCormick.

“There’s something so special about playing Seattle. Author Thomas Wolfe wrote, ‘You can’t go home again,’ but that’s definitely not the case with Jimi,” said his sister Janie Hendrix, CEO of Experience Hendrix, L.L.C. “His music is like a beacon that always brings him back to Seattle, where it all began. Celebrating his legacy here brings it full circle. Even the musicians play stronger, as if they’re channeling the vibe of Jimi. We love Seattle, it’s home . . . it’s family.” 

Critics have been gushing about the Experience Hendrix Tour since its inception. “Hendrix’s classic songs came one after the next and the electric licks were delivered by a who’s who of modern guitar greats,” noted Loudwire, which went on to call it “the guitar tour of the year.” Charleston City Paper stated, “Jimi’s spirit and music could not have been honored more.” 

“At the very end of the night, all the participants came back out for a final bow,” Consequence of Sound observed this past March. “And one thing you couldn’t help but realize by this point – the music of Jimi Hendrix will seemingly live on forever, and continue to inspire future generations.”

The 2019 Experience Hendrix Tour is sponsored by Fender Musical Instruments, the renowned manufacturer of Jimi’s iconic Stratocaster guitars, along with Dunlop, Hal Leonard and Axe Heaven.

Based out of Portland, Dream Wulf is a blend of alternative, stoner, dream and bloom gloom rock and roll music. The band finished recording and is on the verge of releasing a double EP release.  The record will contain remixed and re-mastered classics from their demo release in 2017 and four new songs. They are also writing a concept album, there is no release date currently set.

Dream Wulf is unsigned, as the founding members and visionaries -- John Villadelgado and Jessica Bahl -- enjoy pursuing their dream in their own way.  They are joined by Glenn Walters on drums and Killa on bass.

Dream Wulf’s sound is fiercely psychedelic. Powerful female vocals, melting guitar riffs, intricate time signatures and captivating dark undertones leave you guessing in wonder.  They create a riff- that flirts between the push and pull of light and dark energy, creating the constant synergy of a positive message with a dark delivery. Magnetically charged, their live performances are captivating and dreamy, radiating a unified intensity that lives up to their pack name.

A finalist from the WOW Hall’s Eugene LIVE! series, headliner Novacane consists of guitarist/vocalist Dylan Latimer, bassist Oliver Lester and drummer Zachary Clifton.  Beginning their musical endeavors at the socially awkward age of 15, Novacane has spent the better half of the last decade meticulously crafting their own brand of self-titled "Psych Pop".  Combining a sonic array of psychedelic soundscapes and kinetic live performances, Novacane has found themselves at the peak of a blossoming young music scene.

Novacane celebrated the release of their second EP, Comfort Food, in August.

Eugene’s own Spiller is celebrating the release of a new EP, Plant House.  It’s out now and is available on all music sites.

From Bozeman, Montana, Modern Sons is rooted in garage rock – but their music is not based in a particular style, but in the expression of experience and the song itself.  The Modern Sons effectively use textural changes of dynamics to step into another sub genre of rock they coined “Psychedelic Post-Punk”.

Continuing the blazing trail set by 2015's acclaimed Modern Blues and 2017's top ten-reaching double album Out Of All This Blue, on 24th May The Waterboys will release their new album Where The Action Is, via Cooking Vinyl.

Its title inspired by the chorus of Robert Parker’s 1960s mod / northern soul classic Let's Go Baby, Where The Action Is is a 10-song, genre-defying album, testament to the enduring talents of the band’s founder and front man Mike Scott. One of the finest British songwriters of the past four decades, his songs have been covered and/or recorded by artists including Prince, who crafted two different arrangements of Scott's classic The Whole Of The Moon, Rod Stewart, Tom Jones, Steve Earle, and Ellie Goulding, who had a number three hit in 2013 with How Long Will I Love You.

The title track’s update of the Parker classic – with lyrics to reflect Mike’s own preoccupations – is a cyclone of a song, all swirling Hammond, lead guitar solos played by Steve Wickham on his fuzzboxed-up fiddle, and female vocals provided by the band’s fabulous Jess and Zeenie.

More visceral rock’n’roll follows on London Mick, a tribute to legendary Clash guitarist, Mick Jones. This little stomper is rendered in Mick’s own style circa 1977. A companion piece comes in the shape Of Ladbroke Grove Symphony, a brilliant paean to the former Bohemian heart of West London.

The first single from the album, Right Side Of Heartbreak (Wrong Side Of Love), was recorded by Mike at home, guitar and vocal into a single microphone, then sent to Waterboys' keyboard whizz Brother Paul who added the soundscape, beats and effects at his studio in Nashville. An understated, yet infectious, soulful number addressing the trials and tribs of love, it is one of the album’s standout moments.

Further experimentation can be found on And There’s Love (a collaboration with brilliant English producer Simon Dine) and Take Me There I Will Follow You, with its multi-rhyming lyrics over Brother Paul’s beats.

Where The Action Is also features a song called Out Of All This Blue, the title of the last album. Recorded for that record, but not nailed, Mike revisited it last year with some changes of style. Written for a friend who's been to a dark place, the result is a compassionate song of reassurance.

The centerpiece of the album is In My Time On Earth, impassioned, raw and poetic, in which Mike casts a cold eye over the present day cultural landscape. The chorus tells the secret of the heart, a divine mystery which hides in plain sight.

The two closing songs are inspired by towering literary figures. Then She Made The Lasses-O is based on Robert Burns’ poem Green Grow The Rashes-O and the album’s final track is Piper At The Gates Of Dawn.

This is a reading of the most beautiful part of the chapter of the same name from Kenneth Grahame's famous book The Wind In The Willows. Cut last summer in a single instrumental take at Real World Studios, with Mike adding the vocal in Dublin, the combination of Scott's exquisite and emotive reading and the wondrous soundscape provided by Brother Paul and Steve Wickham, bassist Aongus Ralston and drummer Ralph Salmins makes a transcendent piece and an extraordinary ending to the album.

Diverse in breadth, Where The Action Is is an album of incredible songwriting, experimentation and musical brilliance. It will excite Waterboys fans and new converts alike.

Despite finding such success for the project on the road, Bradlee continues to arrange and record new arrangements every week for PMJ’s legion of fans. The multi-talented collective has interpreted hits by Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, The White Stripes, Lorde, Outkast, Radiohead, Maroon 5 and many more. Last year, PMJ collected 18 favorites from among their hundreds of songs to compile The Essentials for Concord Records. The album included the song that put the band on the map, a vaudevillian distressing of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Thrift Shop,” and their ‘50s doo-wop version of Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop,” which garnered more than 19.5 million views and was named one of the “9 Best Viral Cover Videos of 2015” by People magazine.

Danny Orendorff: “Doing It Together: Queerness, Craft, Collectivity”

Surveying the past ten years of his curatorial work, Orendorff will explore the intersecting threads of DIY and/or craft-oriented cultural production, myriad histories of grassroots social-justice activism, and related theories of gender and sexuality that have together driven his research, exhibition and writing projects. From collectively-made queer videos and massive textile collaborations, to kink-inspired tableaux vivants and plein air paintings of banks on fire, Orendorff will detail past and present curatorial efforts that all pursue an aesthetic of non-normativity, cooperation, resistance and liberation. 

Danny Orendorff is a curator and writer working as Executive Director of Vox Populi, a non-profit gallery, performance space and art collective in Philadelphia, PA. Founded in 1988, Vox Populi serves as an enduring model for how a radically independent and experimental arts organization can sustain itself through collective effort and constant evolution. Formerly, Orendorff was Curator of Public Programs for the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City and Program Director for non-profit Chicago gallery Threewalls. As an independent curator, Orendorff has organized large group exhibitions for such venues as DePaul Art Museum (Chicago, IL), The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design (Asheville, NC), SFCamerawork (San Franicsco, CA), and The Charlotte Street Foundation (Kansas City, MO), amongst others. He has taught in the Fiber & Material Studies Departments of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Tyler School of Art at Temple University.

THE ALMOND BUTTERS BAND

The Almond Butters Band is a collective of well known local musicians that digs in the Americana dirt of the Dead, Allman Brothers Band, The Band, Dylan and more.  The Almond Butters Band loves rootsy Rock N Roll and jamming between the raindrops. Featuring Marty Chilla (vocals and guitar) from the Sugar Beets, Patrick Kavaney (vocals and lead guitar) from Sonic Bent, Mike Gelardi (keys) and Kris McBride (bass) from Us and Them and Beau Eastlund (drums) from Halie and the Moon and many other bands. ABB was voted “Best New Act of 2018” by attendees of the WOW Hall and has been rockin’ the PNW over the past couple years in such venues as Wildcraft, Sessions Music Hall and Sam Bonds.

TOUR HEADS CARAVAN

Many years ago, about four or so, Keith Allen and Carlitos Peres we’re drumming up some Grateful Dead Jam ideas to bring to the WOW Hall stage in Eugene. They gathered bass players, guitarists, drums and percussion all in order to celebrate good old Yamon Pete. Well the jam ensued and every week since that time folks have gotten together in honor of the legacy and musical life of one Jerry Garcia and the band The Grateful Dead. We lost Keith Allen almost two years ago to throat cancer.  Taking up the reigns from his drum kit and keeping the momentum going of the Family Jam is Carlitos Peres with support of founding members Trey Longstreth and David Parrish.  The cast of characters on the weekly rotation includes Elizabeth Cable, Boris Canani, Rob Weiss, Shawn Jackson and Christine Allen.  They all consider themselves “Luckey” to be alive and dancing to the music that never stops.

MINA & JEREMY WEGNER

Mina Wagner is a soulful nineteen-year-old singer-songwriter, strumming and crooning away the blues in Eugene, Oregon.  She is accompanied by her Dad, Jeremy, known for his fretwork with Eugene’s immortal Sugar Beets and a slew of other acts.  Jeremy may be celebrating the 10-year anniversary of his solo release, Nevermind the Triangles.

With the release of their highly anticipated 12th studio album, the gloriously titled “Book of Bad Decisions”, it would be easy to suggest that legendary Maryland rockers Clutch have made their finest record to date. This may even be true. You see, the thing about Clutch is that ever since their 1993 debut Transnational Speedway League they've been in the business of writing stone cold classics, and even the most rabid fan would have trouble picking just one. “Book of Bad Decisions” won't make that task any easier. Rest assured, it's another classic.

Recorded over three weeks at Sputnik Studios in Nashville, “Book of Bad Decisions” was produced by four-time Grammy winner Vance Powell (Seasick Steve, The White Stripes, Arctic Monkeys, etc.), a man who apparently knows that a one degree angle change in microphones makes a difference to how an instrument sounds.

No other composer took the symphony to such extremes – length, size, and emotional depth – so to hear Gustav Mahler’s First is to hear orchestral music itself being reborn. From its most tender moments to its bombastic and thrilling conclusion, it’s a musical experience unlike any other. Complementing it are Felix Mendelssohn’s witty and delightful Concerto for Two Pianos, played by astonishingly talented twin sisters Michelle and Christina Naughton, and an appropriately titled barnstormer by our 2019/20 Composer-in-Residence, Matt Browne.

Cash Cabin Sessions, Vol. 3 - Todd Snider

One morning near the end of August, Todd Snider was relaxing with a visitor on the back porch of his house just outside Nashville, drinking coffee and shooting the breeze while his dog, Cowboy Jim, took a nap nearby. After a while, Snider said to his guest, "I've got an album's worth of songs, and I think the songs are telling me to make a folk record."

This was a surprising bit of news considering he had spent the last six years making rock albums of one kind or another. But Snider was feeling as if he had "maybe drifted too far from the shore." He was feeling the pull to start over, to go back to what he was doing when he first began, to return to his roots as a folksinger.

If Snider needed any further evidence that was the direction he should pursue, he got it a half hour later. Back inside his home office, he checked his email and had one from his manager informing him he had just received an offer to play the 2019 Newport Folk Festival, an event he had never done.

Snider mentioned he had been listening to Woody Guthrie's Library of Congress Recordings, then crossed the room to the turntable and put the needle down on side one of the record. "Woody Guthrie sometimes gets me reset on why you do a song, instead of how," Snider explains of the man who has long been a touchstone for him. "When I was young, there was something about him that made me want to do it. So once or twice a year, I'll go back to him, I'll go back to the source."

Guthrie famously had the words "This machine kills fascists" printed on his guitar, and on several of the songs on Snider's new album, Cash Cabin Sessions, Vol. 3, he squarely aims his guitar at the creeping fascism he sees in America. He had been wanting to make a political record since 2016, and although only half the songs lean in that direction, there is one constant throughout the album: a man, his guitar and the truth.

|ON SALE AT THE UO TICKET OFFICE IN THE EMU|

Witch featuring Kyle Thomas (King Tuff), J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr), Dave Sweetapple (Sweet Apple, Eerie) and Graham Clise (Annihilation Time, Lecherous Gaze).

Witch was born from a marriage of apparently contradictory influences. J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr. renown and his long time friend Dave Sweetapple were interested in forming a hard rock band. They found willing and able conspirators in Kyle Thomas and Asa Irons, both members New England avant-folk outfit Feathers. On their eponymous debut album (released in 2006), this line-up mounts a mighty sonic tumult that harkens back to classic heavy metal sound of early 70's outfits while still sounding modern in it's assault.

The sophomore follow up Paralyzed was released in 2008 and saw a slight departure from the ‘Self Titled’ release, with similar themes but musically more aggressive in it’s approach. Three short years later they added Oakland shredder Graham Clise (Annihilation Time / Lecherous Gaze) on second guitar, rounding out the line up that still stands.

In Witch, Mascis returns to his first love, drums, playing with an unbridled passion that recalls his work with Deep Wound, his early 80's hardcore band.

Meanwhile, Kyle, who also records and tours as King Tuff, sings and writes the group's supernatural-oriented lyrics, exploring the juxtapositions between age and youth, the paradox of meeting yourself, and the dilemma of falling asleep on a mountaintop and waking up a hundred years later.

Graham weaves a dense texture of rhythm and lead guitar lines that ebb and flow over the basic monolithic, trundling riff-rock song structure.

Dave adds additional weight to Witch's sound with massive, crunching bass lines, not dissimilar to his work with horror metal band, Eerie and straight up rock band, Sweet Apple.

|ON SALE AT THE UO TICKET OFFICE IN THE EMU|

Literary Arts is proud to present an evening with acclaimed author and journalist Ta-Nehisi Coates in celebration of his latest book, The Water Dancer (coming September 24).

In this boldly imagined work of magic and adventure, Coates offers a bracingly original vision of the world of slavery. Driven by the author’s bold imagination and striking ability to bring readers deep into the interior lives of his brilliantly rendered characters, The Water Dancer is the story of America’s oldest struggle—the struggle to tell the truth—from one of our most exciting thinkers and beautiful writers.

About the author: Ta-Nehisi Coates is a distinguished writer in residence at NYU's Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute. He is the author of the best-selling books The Beautiful Struggle, We Were Eight Years in Power, and Between The World And Me, which won the National Book Award in 2015. Coates is a recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship. He is also the current author of the Marvel comics The Black Panther and Captain America.

About The Water Dancer: Young Hiram Walker was born into bondage. When his mother was sold away, Hiram was robbed of all memory of her—but was gifted with a mysterious power. Years later, when Hiram almost drowns in a river, that same power saves his life. This brush with death births an urgency in Hiram and a daring scheme: to escape from the only home he’s ever known.

So begins an unexpected journey that takes Hiram from the corrupt grandeur of Virginia’s proud plantations to desperate guerrilla cells in the wilderness, from the coffin of the deep South to dangerously utopic movements in the North. Even as he’s enlisted in the underground war between slavers and the enslaved, Hiram’s resolve to rescue the family he left behind endures.

Special thanks to our event sponsor Angeli Law Firm LLC and our community partners APANO, Coalition for Communities of Color, KairosPDX, Partners in Diversity, Portland State University, and Self Enhancement, Inc.

$65 & $85 tickets include the new Coates book to be distributed at the event.
