Tuesday, June 4, 2024 Lords of Acid, with Devora, Praga Khan   The WOW Hall set an earlier-than-usual door time for a Tuesday show (6:30 p.m.) in anticipation of four performers on the bill, but one dropped out leaving some extended break in the evening — but we appreciated that if nothing else Lords of […]

WOW TALES: The Wailers, with Desolution, Harley Jackson

By WOW Hall | May 31, 2024

Thursday, May 30, 2024 The Wailers   I have seen countless shows at the WOW Hall going back to the 1990s, yet I can’t recall ever seeing a larger crowd than what we had tonight. A sellout of all tickets, plus an ample guest list and full staff/volunteer crew, meant having to shoe-horn in everyone […]

Like, ear-splitting, wall vibrating, headache inducing, head still pounding three days later, measuring on the Richter scale volume? Then boy oh boy did we have a show for you!!!

WOW TALES: House of Deville’s

By WOW Hall | May 26, 2024

Saturday, May 25, 2024 Dark Cabinet Curio presents…House of Deville’s   The WOW Hall prides itself on being an all-ages and all-welcoming place, but sometimes we have to set an age restriction on shows…tonight there was a very valid reason for making it 18 and older.

WOW TALES: Dungeons & Drag Queens

By WOW Hall | May 24, 2024

Friday, May 24, 2024 DUNGEONS & DRAG QUEENS A seated yet very rowdy crowd packed the WOW Hall this evening for a show that definitely takes a detour from our normally music-oriented programming at the venerable, historic WOW Hall. We had many people in attendance dress in their best renaissance fair decor, a few complete […]

WOW TALES: tu-NER with Childspeak

By WOW Hall | May 20, 2024

Monday, May 20, 2024 tu-NER, opener: Childspeak We honestly weren’t sure how this show would go over — it’s difficult to get a crowd out on a Monday evening, especially with very avant garde experimental sounds that generally attract a more niche audience. Still, we persevered, and were rewarded with two excellent performances and an […]

May 17, 2024 SHREK RAVE With a tagline of “it’s dumb just come have fun” it had to be good, right? EDM raves tend to do well at the WOW Hall, but this event brought it to a whole new level. This was a later start than usual for our shows, with the event kicking […]

WOW TALES: Shane Mauss

By WOW Hall | May 16, 2024

Thursday, May 16, 2024 Shane Mauss This was a comedy show with a seated audience, but despite the leisurely seated setting our crowd was riveted and riotous in their laughter with comedian Shane Mauss’ multimedia show. Billed as a combination of science, psychedelics, and comedy — it lived up to the promise and more. Shane, […]

WOW TALES: Fruition

By WOW Hall | May 14, 2024

Tuesday, May 14, 2024 Fruition We tried mightily to find an opening act for this show, but after considering several options while the clock kept ticking closer to the show thankfully Fruition agreed to play a double set. Turned out we didn’t need an opener, as this Portland band’s return to Eugene drew a huge […]

WOW TALES: Qwanqwa, with Ratie D

By WOW Hall | May 12, 2024

Sunday, May 12 Qwanqwa, opener: Ratie D   What a fascinating evening this was, with absolutely beautiful music. One thing we take great pride about at the WOW Hall is having arguably the most eclectic lineup of performances of any venue in the Eugene-Springfield area, and this show certainly added to that reputation. The evening […]
