Moving to Eugene in August or Late July, from Austin, Texas area, and I am wondering how the music scene in Eugene is. I know Portland has a great scene, but what about Eugene.

In typing this I realized Eugene rhymes with almost everything


Any input would be greatly appreciated

As far as? There are several local places that have local talent. For the big timers Portland is the closest I believe. I just saw another thread a few down from this that also mentioned McDonald theater. I've never been but this person said they have some bigger name acts.

Default Any Festivals

Are there any music festivals/events that are hosted in Eugene annually?

There are a few...there's the Bach Festival and then Faerieworlds has something in July (I think it's July). The Shedd Institute has some stuff and I think there's still a Reggae festival that takes place during the summer.

Anyway, you might find something you like here:

Thanks for those links. Do you know if Eugene has a showlist website like www.showlistaustin.com does?

I am trying to find out more about the local scene as apposed to the bigger bands that cost a lot of money

The McDonald and WOW Hall have great shows that my hubby and I will drove over from Bend for. We also enjoy going to the Cuthburt in the summer. I have a few friends who live in Eugene and it seems as though there is a local music scene, although smaller than Portland. Check out this independent entertainment publication for the Eugene area. It might help you. Eugene Weekly : 6.23.11 You might also look on JamBase for a list of local shows.
