A smooth but irreverent rapper from Minnesota, Yung Gravy achieved viral success in the late 2010s with a self-made style that blended trap beats with samples from various retro styles including doo wop and ’50s pop. Songs like “Mr. Clean” and “1 Thot 2 Thot Red Thot Blue Thot” put him on the cultural pop map and earned him a deal with major-label Republic Records, which issued his debut full-length, Sensational, in 2019.
After signing with Republic, Yung Gravy made his major-label debut with the Snow Cougar EP, then rounded out his banner year by teaming up with Atlanta-based rapper Lil Baby for the single “Alley Oop.” Led by the single “Magic,” his Republic-issued full-length debut, Sensational, arrived in May 2019. Landing just outside the Top 50 on the Billboard 200, the set was promoted with an extensive tour that featured appearances by bbno$.
While touring, the pair took the opportunity to record a sequel to their 2017 collaborative EP, which was issued on Valentine’s Day 2020. Baby Gravy 2 featured production by Y2K and guests Spark Master Tape, Cuco, and TrippyThaKid. Yung Gravy’s third album, Gasanova, arrived that October and featured guest appearances by Ski Mask the Slump God, TrippyThaKid, Bobby Raps, Young Dolph, and others.

2017 oregon concerts eugene
Dave Grohl doesn’t just play music. He performs.
And loves every minute of it.
Grohl promised a long night and indeed it was as Foo Fighters spent nearly three hours on a 22 song set on Tuesday at Matthew Knight Arena in Eugene, OR that included extended guitar jams, drum and piano solos, a birthday ode to Little Richard, snippets of cover songs and Grohl returning to his roots playing drums on one song.
A sold-out crowd packed the home court for the University of Oregon, an arena a third the size of the typical venue – a most welcome stop for a top-drawer act in rock music. The crowd and Foo Fighters rocked from the opening guitar lick to the final note. Foo Fighters recently started their 2017 tour supporting their ninth album Concrete and Gold released in September and this is just the beginning. Dates already on sale for additional stops throughout 2018 including Portland in September.
It’s a rare treat to see a high caliber act like Foo Fighters play such an intimate venue compared to dates scheduled for Fenway Park and Safeco Field in Seattle next year. And yes, if you missed it, well, you missed it.
Grohl, the former Nirvana drummer and Foo Fighters founder who has established himself already as an icon in the rock world was on point all evening. Gone was the “throne” he sat in last time out thanks to a broken leg. It was vintage head-banging, hard-rocking Grohl. A guitar never left his hands, he immersed himself to the audience whilst playing breakneck chords and perpetually screaming. How he does it? Who knows. He never lost his voice, well, just a bit – once. He regularly engaged with the audience, asking sometimes facetious questions though finally admitted near the end that it was Foo Fighters first visit to Eugene.
The night started with the first single off the new album “Run” which if you haven’t seen the video is worth a watch. The band stayed hidden behind a large curtain while playing the opening bars before the full stage reveal when the heavy chords hit. It was just the start of an exhaustive evening of bona fide rock songs as the band drew from eight of the nine albums (surprisingly, Sonic Highways omitted) released in their 22 year career.
The popular “All My Life” followed then the more mellow “Learning to Fly” which after all the screaming in the prior song Grohl sounded a little hoarse before regaining his composure and showing no worse for the wear the remainder of the evening. Everything you hear on radio, which is a lot, was played as well as a few hardcore fan cuts like “Rope” off 2011’s Wasting Light and “Let it Die” from Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace from 2007.
“The Sky is a Neighborhood” off the new album works very well live, “The Pretender” rocked, Rami Jaffee classed up “My Hero” with a piano solo and little else rises above the emotionally-charged and engaging melody of “Times Like These.” It wasn’t all Grohl either, as lead guitarist Chris Shiflett took vocal duties on the Alice Cooper cover “Under My Wheel” and Hawkins sang the new song “Sunday Rain” in a duet of sorts with Luke Spiller, singer for opening band The Struts, on a most excellent rendition of Queen’s “Under Pressure” as Grohl played drums.
But, don’t you just hate it when a band takes their most cherished songs and mixes them up a bit for the live show? Yes, Foo Fighters do just that – but be not afraid, instead of adding some cringe-making arrangements they manage to inject extra flavor serving to only enhance the traditional album version:
- On “Rope” Grohl and drummer Taylor Hawkins “talked” to each other via instrumentation. It’s a clever technique for musicians to engage in, feeding off one another which the two did before Hawkins’ percussion platform raised about 15 feet above the stage and he took over with a short solo as Grohl enjoyed a cigarette break, watching as a fan.
- “The Pretender” received a near 10 minute extension as Grohl walked all over the place, acknowledged Little Richard’s birthday and mostly turned screwing around into an art form.
- “Best of You” closed the first set and didn’t end quietly.
In fact, every song received special live treatment whether it was extended guitar work, various soloing or Grohl using a bit of stop- or slow-play to add a little fun before bringing the audience back to attention. It actually left you wondering what they’d incorporate for the next song.
However, it wasn’t a slick three hours. The evening ran into some molasses about two hours in after taking nearly 20 minutes for band member introductions, each flexing a little of their talent while Grohl egged his bandmates on or implored the crowd for acknowledgements. This led to bits and pieces of cover songs including “Another One Bites the Dust” from Queen and “Tom Sawyer” by Rush which prior to Grohl asked the crowd “Do you honestly think Foo Fighters can play a Rush song?” They ripped into the familiar chords for about a minute before he cut it off and said “That’s a musical minefield.”
Finally, Foo Fighters encored with “Dirty Water” off Concrete and Gold which really grows on you with that outstanding last half. Reminds me of that Australian band Pray TV from the 1990s. Tom Petty’s “Breakdown” and the popular “Everlong” ended the show.
This band succeeds where many fail by releasing songs fans not only fully embrace but that already sound like part of their collection of hits. And, every artist seemingly has a song or two they enjoy playing live along with newer album fare that doesn’t yet fully resonate with the audience. The “bathroom break” songs, if you will. Not Foo Fighters. The multitude met every song played off Concrete and Gold with rock and roll vigor. It only serves as a testament to the quality of material Foo Fighters release every few years and the stage presence of the band but especially Grohl. The growing legend in this industry brings limitless energy, passion and dedication to his craft and the live show.
Undeniably, Foo Fighters release album after album of guitar-centric, straight forward hard rock with pounding drums and rabid bass lines without walking back over themselves. After starting as a one-man show, then some line-up changes, Groh has found a core group of musicians to carry his band forward in the far term. For his part, Grohl is not only a gifted artist but a consummate professional who puts his heart and soul into every performance. He jokes, he’s a goof (wore an oddly appropriate headlamp during “Breakout”) and plays like no other. He eats the stage with vigor while his energy overflows into the audience making Foo Fighters concerts an entertaining spectacle grounded in a solid setlist of songs.

The Broadway Avenue House Concerts are a venue for performers of acoustic contemporary jazz and chamber classical music who bring original compositions as well as new interpretations of traditional forms to an intimate concert setting.
After retiring from teaching, Paul Bodin became a student at UO’s jazz studies program, where he began meeting musicians. A few years later, he started using his living room as a space for local jazz combos to play. The informal concerts were an immediate success. Soon people outside the UO music community were contacting him, including musicians touring from overseas. In 2009, the Broadway House Concerts were officially born.
Since then, Paul and his spouse Peggy have hosted 54 house concerts (see a full list below.
The Bodin’s 1920s house by Monroe Park has a living room that seats 55 (30-35 until further notice). If you go, along with admission, bring a food and/or beverage item for the potluck intermission. All admission fees go directly to the performers. Contact Paul at [email protected] to join the mailing list for upcoming concert dates and times.
Broadway House Concerts is located in a 1920s bungalow-style home at the northwest corner of Adams and Broadway streets, diagonally across from Monroe Park in downtown Eugene. If you head west on 11th Ave., turn right at Monroe Street, travel 2 blocks to Broadway, then turn left and continue 1 block to Adams. Park along the street. There will be a sign to direct you to the entrance at the rear of the house.
Thinking forward to our upcoming concerts starting this November, after a long pandemic-related closure, we want our audience members to feel as safe as possible as they congregate together and listen to live jazz performances.
To make this possible, we plan to ask all of you to attend Broadway House concerts wearing a mask and coming fully vaccinated. We realize that this may place a burden on some, and we apologize for this. But the general health and well-being of our audience comes first.
For our part, we will ventilate our home by opening up windows. And we plan on limiting our seating capacity to about 30 to 35. This is about 15 seats less than our maximum seating in the past. We may add more seats later in the year if community spread continues to decline. An added benefit of reduced seating is that visibility of the performers from seats further back will be enhanced.
Because all admission proceeds go directly to the artists, diminished seating means less income. There is where you can help. In order for us to charge a reasonable admission at the door, we would like to pay the musicians an additional amount to supplement their income.
We are inviting your help by donating in the next two months to a dedicated Broadway Artists Fund. Here’s how to do this:
- Mail us your anonymous donation in the form of a personal check made out to Paul Bodin with “Broadway Artists Fund” notated at the bottom of the check. Our address is: Paul Bodin, 911 W. Broadway, Eugene, Oregon 97402. Send us a simple email that you have sent us your donation and we will email you back a confirmation when we receive your check.
- If you prefer, you can send us a money order.
Our goal is to raise $2000 before our fall season of concerts begins. This dedicated artists fund will supplement them with a significant stipend to make sure that they are sufficiently rewarded for their efforts to come and perform for us. At the end of the 2021-22 house concert season, we will send you a summary of our distribution of funds to performing artists. And let us know if you think that a Gofundme platform would be a good additional way to raise funds.
We appreciate your support of live music and look forward to seeing you soon!

Eugene Concert Choir
Choral masterworks organization
Eugene Concert Choir is a choral masterworks organization in Eugene, Oregon, that consists of three performing ensembles: the 100-voice Eugene Concert Choir (ECC), the 36-voice chamber choir Eugene Vocal Arts (EVA), and the associated professional chamber orchestra Eugene Concert Orchestra.
Described from its beginnings in the 1980s by the Eugene Register Guard as "Community enterprise at its best," the organization is a resident company of the Hult Center for the Performing Arts, which is the primary performance venue for the choirs. Eugene Vocal Arts also regularly performs at The University of Oregon's Beall Concert Hall. Community and educational outreach is an important element in the organization and the Eugene Concert Choir Outreach program annually reaches 1,000+ children through in-school presentations. Diane Retallack has been the Artistic Director and Conductor since 1985.
The Eugene Concert Choir organization is a 501(c)(3)non-profit organization governed by a board of directors, and its mission is "to engage, inspire and enrich the community through performance of choral masterworks, diverse artistic experiences, and educational outreach." Touring choirs from the organization have performed in Australia, China, Europe, and Carnegie Hall in New York City.
The Eugene Concert Choir commissioned a choral masterwork entitled Shadow and Light: An Alzheimer's Journey in 16 Movements by Portland composer Joan Szymko. The premiere performances were April 6 and 8, 2016 by the Eugene Vocal Arts and the newly formed Eugene Concert Orchestra, three soloists and speaker. The recording of Shadow and Light was awarded the American Prize Ernst Bacon Award for Recorded Music, Community Division, in 2016. The video documentary by AO Films entitled The Story of Shadow and Light: Giving Voice to an Alzheimer's Journey won Best Documentary in the 2017 Oregon Independent Film Festival.

The Eugene Concert Choir also lightens the concert season by presenting more popular fare. Past performances have included shows titled American Style, The Big Bands Era, Hot Latin Nights, The British Invasion, The Best of Broadway, and Jazz, Gospel & Motown. These popular presentations were original musical revues created by Artistic Director Diane Retallack. The first of these popular creations was 20th Century America in Revue, inspired by a review of music in America for the millennium celebration in the year 2000. The most ambitious original creation was a fully staged musical, A Dickens of a Christmas, based on Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, performed at the Hult Center in 2015 and reprised in December 2018. Diane Retallack joined with DJ Prashant Kakad for the collaborative creation of an original musical titled A Bollywood Dream, performed by the Eugene Concert Choir and Prashant Kakad’s organization Bollywood Dreams in April of 2018.
Eugene Vocal Arts
Eugene Vocal Arts performs works appropriate for a select chamber choir, from the Renaissance to the present. Recent repertoire has included an element of social significance. Eugene Vocal Arts performed the world premiere of the commissioned work Shadow and Light; An Alzheimer’s Journey in 16 Movements by Oregon composer Joan Szymko in April of 2016. Their spring concert in 2019, The Peace of Wild Things, focused on contemporary choral music to heighten awareness of our precious natural world and reflect on what “Earth Day” means to us and to future generations. The 2019-2020 season will include The Unarmed Child, composer Michael Bussewitz-Quarm's response to gun violence against children, and a concert titled In Celebration of Women, to mark the 100th anniversary of women's right to vote.
From 1990 to 1999, the Eugene Vocal Arts ensemble presented English Madrigal Dinners in elaborate Elizabethan attire. They revived the English Madrigal Dinner in date --, later moving the event to the spring for a MayFest dinner for two years. The Ensemble continues to perform Renaissance repertoire in authentic Elizabethan dress in concert presentations.
Works performed with orchestra include:
Eugene Concert Orchestra
The Eugene Concert Orchestra, the professional orchestra of the Eugene Concert Choir organization, has primarily assisted the Eugene Vocal Arts and the Eugene Concert Choir in the choral-orchestral works performed with the organization from its debut concert in fall of 2015 with the Haydn St. Cecilia Mass. Occasionally the orchestra is featured in orchestral repertoire alone and has performed the Albinoni Adagio and Pachelbel's Canon.
The Eugene Concert Choir was founded as the Eugene Community Chorus under the direction of Philip Bayles, who brought the singers together for a read-through of Handel's Messiah in April 1974. The singers organized themselves into a continuing ensemble, elected officers, and continued to perform with Philip Bayles as their director and conductor through the 1981-82 season. Paul Westlund was hired as artistic director for the 1982-83 season, and Peter Jermihov became director for the following two seasons.
Diane Retallack was hired as Artistic Director and Conductor at the start of the 1985-86 season and has continued in that position to the present. In 1986, she founded the Eugene Vocal Arts Ensemble (frequently referred to as simply Eugene Vocal Arts) as a chamber choir within the Eugene Concert Choir organization. At the start of Retallack's tenure, the Eugene Concert Choir hired the Oregon Mozart Players to be their partner orchestra for most of their concerts, occasionally hiring the Eugene Symphony Orchestra for larger works.
The Eugene Concert Orchestra was formed in 2015 as a part of the Eugene Concert Choir organization in response to the needs for the Shadow and Light recording project, and has continued as the orchestra of the organization, performing with both choirs.
