Hey boys and girls! Hot enough for ya? I do love the sensation of that first bead of sweat of the day, moistening those parched expanses and folds. Really makes you want a beer, doesn’t it? One of the things I like as much as a nice tall pint of Calapooia beer is good music to listen to while swilling said beer. Here’s what we have for treats this week at the Pooia!


On Thursday, July 26th, if you aren’t into the madding crowds of the River Rhythms scene, you could come check out HOLUS BOLUS. One year ago, Thursday the 23d, this one man band and his magical loop machine entertained us in our happy little pub. It’s kind of a little anniversary for HOLUS BOLUS and the Pooia. Here’s a little trip in the Time Machine, to that day one year ago…

On Friday, we have another sweet return. BETTY AND THE BOY return on July 27th to ply us with their dulcet tones and passionate phrases. They visited us a couple years ago, when it really was just Betty and Josh (the boy). Since then they have expanded to a four piece and just last year, they shared the 2011, “Best of Eugene” Best Musical Artist status with another Calapooia alum, Tyler Fortier. Here’s a haunting video from their latest album…

Then, on Saturday the 28th, it’s the wild and wonderful, finger-pickin’ style of Brooks Robertson.

All shows are at 8pm, and they’re free! So come in, get a burger and some suds and settle in for some great entertainment at the Calapooia Brewing Company!
