Byline: The Register-Guard

Eugene set for invasion of the Marley kind

Julian Marley, one of Bob's many talented sons, will bring his band, the Uprising, to the Jungle, 23 W. Sixth Ave., at 7 p.m. Sunday ($12), to promote their new release, "A Time and Place."

On Thursday, the Wailers will play the McDonald Theatre, 1010 Willamette St., at 8 p.m. ($25, $21 advance). The lineup includes bassist Aston "Familyman" Barrett, organist Earl "Wyo" Lindo, saxophonist Glen DaCosta, trombonist Vin Gordon and former City Heat vocalist Gary "Nesta" Pine.

New Monsoon opens.

WOW Hall has a busy week ahead of it

Four shows, 13 bands. That's what the WOW Hall, 291 W. Eighth Ave., has lined up for the coming week, not counting Monday's sold-out Bruce Cockburn concert.

Porch, a San Francisco Bay area band that opened for the Cherry Poppin' Daddies at the WOW Hall in June 1995, returns tonight. Led by guitarist Todd Huth (Primus, Sausage), the band includes Curtis Nishimura on bass and Michael Jacobs on drums. The $7 show opens at 8:30 p.m. with Portland prog rockers The Planet The, Stop Sign Go and Conception.

Skerik - a Seattle saxophonist who has played punk-jazz, rock and jazz with musicians such as Charlie Hunter, Wayne Horovitz and Roger Waters - will bring his Syncopated Taint Sextet in on Saturday. The $10 show will open at 8:30 p.m. with Tim McLaughlin's Eleven Eyes, a Eugene band that mixes jazz, funk, electronica, hip-hop, Afro-Cuban and dub.

Sunday it's indie rock, with Denali, Laguardia and Swords Project starting at 8:30 p.m. for $7. Led by singer-guitarist-keyboardist Maura Davis, Denali is a Richmond, Va., band touring to support its second album, "The Instinct."

On Wednesday, Throw Rag will play "their own deranged hybrid of hard-core punk rock, voodoo swamp boogie and nightmare roots-folk music." The bill includes the Boss Martians, Sawyer Family and Speedshift. The $7 show starts at 8:30 p.m.
