Entertaiment roundup: Sweet N Juicy were a hit at the “Crane”. A couple of cancelations elsewhere

Share this article

By BEN OLSON/for The Herald  —  Last Friday I posted a brief announcement that the Satori Bob show at Deep Woods Distillery had been canceled. I am certain that some people, myself included, were disappointed. 

Here it is, Friday again, and I’m posting another short-notice cancellation. On Wednesday afternoon I got a text from my good friend Justin Raudebush. I was going to pick him up in Eugene on Thursday. 

We were planning to see the Sweet n Juicy performance at the 3 Legged Crane that night and he was going to entertain there on Friday evening. 

Poles of Inaccessibility is accessible with tickets

On Saturday night, the fundraiser for the Zero Clearance Theater and the play Poles of Inaccessibility is on the slate. There was disc golf to be played and hikes to be taken before he was to head south to his next destination in California.

The text informed me that he had tested positive for COVID. In the subsequent phone conversation, we kicked around all his options, which were, in a nutshell, to stay at his friend Kevin’s place in McMinnville until he tests negative. 

All the carefully crafted plans for his big vacation were just wreckage. The good news is that he doesn’t feel too bad, and that Kevin and his wife are cool with him staying there until he can re-enter the world.

As they say, the show must go on. As a tribute to Justin, the Random Lama, I will be in the 3 Legged Crane tonight playing his setlist from 7 until 9.

Sweet n Juicy: costumes and all

As a side note, the first thing Sweet n Juicy addressed last night was the cause of their short-notice cancellation back in February. They wrung more humor out of a car breakdown story than I thought was possible. The only way it could have been any funnier would have been to picture them sitting in their broken-down car in Corvallis in their stage costumes. 

By the way, the guys put on a great show last night. They are masters at what they do, and they show as much enthusiasm playing in a little bar in Oakridge as they would in a big dance club in Portland.

I’ll be back with next week’s entertainment column on Sunday.
