Corvallis Queer Film Festival. Darkside Cinema, 215 SW Fourth St., Corvallis. 6 – 9 p.m. Feb. 22 to 25. Free.

BACK AT LAST! The Corvallis Queer Film Festival offers up four nights of humanizing narrative and nonfiction films (all fantastic from head to toe), created by queer and trans-identified people, highlighting intersectional identities and complicate discourses of sex, gender, and intimacy. A big hit of the past, the festival returns to melt your face (if we’re using metal terms… and we are). If you’re a fan of film or advocate for the queer community, be there… or be somewhere else. It’s just that being somewhere else will be remembered as a terrible choice in your immediate and long term future. For info, visit calendar.oregonstate.edu/event/121161/ or facebook.com/events/375825709479501/permalink/379811125747626/.

A Plastic Ocean brings to light the consequences of our global disposable lifestyle.” Fair enough! The Eco-Film Festival you’re currently reading about is organized by the Corvallis Odd Fellows, the Corvallis Sustainability Coalition, and the Corvallis Environmental Center. Oregon Trail Brewery will bring the beer and New Morning Bakery the snacks. You still have to buy them, sorry. But you won’t mind, because its all really damn good. Oh, and local experts will be hanging out after each flick for some sweet discussion and Q&A action. For more info, call 541-230-1237, or visit www.sustainablecorvallis.org.

Marbin + Wups. Bombs Away Café, 2527 NW Monroe Ave., Corvallis. 9:30 p.m. $7.

I’m not familiar with Marbin, but its progressive jazz and therefore automatically good. And Wups… well, Wups is the sh*t – and if you don’t think so, there’s something wrong with you. You should seriously get that checked out. If you’re looking to catch a show, make it this one and you won’t regret it. For info, visit www.bombsawaycafe.com/.

Zwickelmania 2017. Block 15 Brewery & Tap Room, Flat Tail Brewing, Mazama Brewing, OSU Pilot Research Brewery, and other locations around Oregon. 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Free. Alright, so… I admit it: I don’t know what the hell a Zwickel is. However, thanks to bipolar disorder, I’m well acquainted with mania. And now that I’m done with the part of this entry that you don’t care about… “Oregon’s breweries open their doors once again for the 9th annual Zwickelmania. The free brewery tour event gives casual and hardcore beer fans a chance to meet the brewers, sample beer, tour the brewery and pair food with beer.” Take a trip on their website for access to maps, as well as details on the participating breweries and their offerings. For info, visit www.oregoncraftbeer.org/zwickelmania/.

WHO’S The ROSS – Corvallis Special. The Dam Arcade, 349 SW Fourth St., Corvallis. 8 – 10 p.m. $5.

Much like the aforementioned Zwickle, I’m unfamiliar with WHO’S The ROSS, however I have it on good authority that it’s awesome and funny as hell. I’m passing that authority along to you, because I love you. Actually, I don’t know you and that’s weird. But this is Portland’s weekly late-night talk,and it’ll be doing its thing in Corvallis for one-night-only. For more information, check out whostheross.com.

Sunday, February 26

Folkroots Morning Music. Imagine Coffee, 5460 SW Philomath Blvd., Corvallis. 10:30 a.m. – Noon. Free.

Local Corvallisite and singer-songwriter Ralph Penunuri “weaves a musical folkroots interlude of instrumental and storysong stylings, with acoustic guitar, banjo and dulcimer.” To use terms of the common folk: the dude is really, really good… and if you’re into this sort of thing, you’ll be into this particular thing. For info: 541-760-3069.

Friends of the Library – BIG Book Sale. Benton County Fairgrounds, 110 SW 53rd St., Corvallis. Open to Public 6 – 9 p.m. Members only 4 – 6 p.m.

Like books? Want to buy books? Want to do it cheap and walk away really happy, complete with a big ridiculous nerd-smile on your face? Yep, me too. They say anyone can become a member for just $10 at the door, and I’m inclined to believe them. Join up, cash out, and book in. Okay, that was lame. Just ignore me and do the thing. For info, visit cbcpubliclibrary.net.

Monday, February 27

Grass Roots Books & Music Welcomes Portland author Therese Oneill. Grass Roots Books and Music, 227 SW Second St., Corvallis. 7 p.m.

Are you a fan of things that are hilarious? Howabout “scandalously honest?” What if they involve a “guide to the secrets of life as a Victorian lady?” Hmm… that last one is strangely specific, but run with me on this one. Therese Oneill will be preent at Grass Roots for a reading and signing of her new book, UNMENTIONABLE, which is basically what I was describing in that weird question-y introduction. Grass Roots always has the most amazing author talks, and I know you’ve been thinking about making it to one. Yes, I am psychic. The truth is out.

Community Movie Night. Darkside Cinema, 215 SW 4th St. 7 p.m. Free.

It seems like just the other day that The Corvallis Advocate and Darkside Cinema partnered for the first Community Movie Night – though in actuality, it was two and a half years ago on July 8th, 2014. Unfortunately the semi-long-standing free classic movie night is coming to an end, and this is your last chance to grab a seat, purchase some popcorn and enjoy a legendary flick; complete with commentary and era-appropriate extras. Sad as it is to lose an event like this, there is a silver lining: a new film series dubbed Dark-ive. It will incorporate live music, a short film, as well as a feature. Movie’s will be chosen from the archives of Darkside’s highest grossed screenings — the ones that have received the best audience reaction, and the staff’s forever favorites. The night will feature rotating hosts introducing the films and will cost an easy $5. So don’t worry folks… the films will flow.

The Baron Ward. Bombs Away Café, 2527 NW Monroe Ave., Corvallis. 9:30 p.m. Free. I’m listening to The Baron Ward right on on Reverbnation (https://www.reverbnation.com/thebaronward), and feel like its a warm summer day back in the early 1990s. Pretty much the best feeling ever. This is a two-person acoustic duo (hence the two person thing) that’s got a very humanistic tone, and definitely brings a little of the funk. The good kind of funk… not what happens when you don’t shower and eat too many Vienna sausages. Two voices and a guitar. According to their website, “they believe in blind love, true loyalty, and stalwart hedonism.” Sounds good to me. For some musical info, visit www.bombsawaycafe.com/.

OSU Foundations Visiting Artist Program: Carson Ellis. Art 101 Class, Gilfillan Auditorium, 2601 SW Orchard Ave., Corvallis. Noon. Free.

Um, holy crap? Carson Ellis is a children’s book illustrator of some note. Like, a lot of note. Much note. Ever heard of New York Times bestseller “The Mysterious Benedict Society” by Trenton Lee Stewart, or “The Composer is Dead” by Lemony Snicket? “The Wildwood Chronicles” by Colin Meloy? I thought so. She also happens to be the illustrator-in-residence for The Decemberists. We’re lucky to have her down here! Don’t miss it. For more information, just visit carsonellis.com.

The whole shebang is sponsored by Oregon State University’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences. For info, contact mfisk@coas.oregonstate.edu
