Well met good citizens! Glory be to summer, sunshine, suds and silliness! It’s good to be where we are, here in the verdant Willamette Valley, home of some of the best beer, wine and food in the world. Oh, I forgot to mention music! We got it here at the Calapooia and this is what’s in store this weekend.

On Friday the 3d at 9pm, it’s PROFESSOR GALL! From Portland, Professor Gall is a string, brass and woodwinds band that “seeks to uncover the contradictions of an ambiguous and native-less society, ‘dreaming the existentialists dream’ while at the same time pleading for individualism, peace, and more fun at funerals.” Here’s a taste…but you really gotta see ’em live for the complete meal.

And on Saturday at 8pm, from Eugene, is SATORI BOB, a singer/songwriter with influences of Bob Dylan, Tom Waits and John Prine…

Both shows are free so come on down and get some culchah in ya. Or at least a beer.
