Musicians Plan Birthday Tribute to 'The Quiet Beatle'


Byline: POP NOTES By Serena Markstrom The Register-Guard

To celebrate what would be George Harrison's 63rd birthday, local musicians will come together for his music Saturday during a George Harrison Birthday Tribute.

Playing Indian music with a sitar and tabla, Bindaas will start the evening off in the tradition of Harrison's mentor, Ravi Shankar.

Love Truffle will share some Harrison arrangements, led by Paul Safar and Nancy Wood. Then Maya Love, Rob Tobias and many other Eugene musicians will play their favorite Harrison songs and covers, including some Traveling Wilbury tunes.

The Lennonite Choir, a mainstay at John Lennon celebrations, will sing choral arrangements of some of their best-loved Harrison.

The No. 9 Band will finish the evening with a "tour-de-force" of Harrison music, according to a press release.

The all ages event starts at 6:30 p.m. at Cozmic Pizza, 199 W. Eighth Ave. Admission is $5 to $10.

Reignition Vol. 14

Today, WOW Hall

This month's installment of local rock music showcase will feature the Detonators, the Anxieties, the Happy Bastards and Pirate Radio.

Together since 1979, the Detonators were a part of the early hardcore scene in Los Angeles. The band relocated to Eugene in 1987.

The Anxieties are a four-piece band that plays old school-style, British-influenced punk rock. Their songs revolve around neurosis and dysfunc- tion.

Another old-style punk band, the Happy Bastards, formed in 2003. They are set to release a full-length CD this spring.

Pirate Radio plays a style of punk that derives from the Dead Boys, the Business, the Misfits and the Ramones.

Admission is $5 at the door, with ticket proceeds being donated to improve WOW Hall sound and lights. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. The hall is at 291 W. Eighth Ave.

Bat Makumba

Today, Cozmic Pizza

Bat Makumba mixes the equatorial beats of Brazil with the punk, rock and funk influences of the United States.

According to the group's biography, the band also travels in a veggie oil bus, packing houses up and down the West Coast with audiences eager to hear a kinetic, percussive show.

Coming up from San Francisco just in time for Carnival Saturday in Brazil, Bat Makumba will present its own take on the hedonistic celebration with a healthy mix of world beats, funk and rock.

Get ready to shake it beginning at 9 p.m. The cover is $6.

Minus the Bear

Saturday, WOW Hall

The WOW Hall is billing the Minus the Bear, Appleseed Cast, Rocky Votolato and Crystal Skulls show as "emo," but it won't all be sensitive and reflective. There will be plenty of pop beats thrown in.

Minus the Bear, out of Seattle, is touring behind its fifth album, "Menos el Oso" (Spanish for Minus the Bear). Guitar Player magazine says the band's sound is "a mixture of the Police's syncopated pop, electronic elements a la Tortoise, textural fly-bys, and tricky two-hand tapping.'

Rocky Votolato is a soft-spoken, hard-working 28-year-old father of two based in Seattle. According to a press release, his music echoes the life he left behind in the small town of Frost, Texas.

Votolato's latest solo project, "Makers," draws much of its inspiration from his rural upbringing. Entertainment Weekly called it "pretty rainy-day music.'

Tickets are $12 in advance, $14 at the door. Showtime is 9 p.m.

David Rovics

Saturday, Sam's Place

Dubbed "America's greatest political folk singer,' David Rovics is on a West Coast tour spreading his songs in the tradition of Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie. His emotionally charged performances challenge audiences to stand up and speak out. …
