REVIEW: Jerry Seinfeld @ Hult Center (Eugene, OR – 5/21/09)

21st May 09 (Thu) 1 comment

Mini-review…

It’s been a while since seeing Jerry Seinfeld live.  I was always a big fan of that television show that he was on… you know… um, what was it called?  Oh, yeah… Benson.  I hear he kinda “faded away” after that early-80s stint on Benson . ;)

The opener was Larry Miller.  He was the doorman on Seinfeld, plus he’s been in other television shows and movies (like Best in Show).  Funny stuff, but he only did about 20-25 minutes of material.  It was odd, because not even a minute later… on comes Jerry… at 7:28pm*…

Well, third time seeing him… Jerry did a lot of familiar jokes, and it was great.  Horse racing, cellphones, “going out,” old people in Florida, being a parent…  He did an hour’s worth of material, and then came back on for about 10 minutes of Q&A.  Complete with a classic “Hello, Newman.” :)

*- I only made note of the time as it shocked me that it was starting soooo early.

Entertainment Weekly reported recently that Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander, and Michael Richards will have appearances in multiple episodes of (co-Seinfeld creator) Larry David‘s Curb Your Enthusiasm this season.  Yay!

One of my favorite jazz bands from Seattle, Reptet (part of the Monktail Creative Music Concern) is hitting the road again this spring.

March 12th – Mississippi Pizza – Portland, OR
March 13th – The Stage Door – Mt. Shasta, CA
March 14th – Divided Sky – S. Lake Tahoe, CA
March 15th – The Zephyr Lounge – Reno, NV
March 16th – Don Quixote’s – Santa Cruz, CA
March 17th – Delta of Venus – Davis, CA
March 18th -Amnesia Bar – San Francisco, CA
March 19th – Cozmic Pizza, Eugene, OR

I’m bummed, as when they’ll be here in Eugene, I’ll be up in their neck of the woods in Seattle.  And when they’re back in Seattle the next day, I already got Spinal Tap tickets at the Paramount in Seattle.  “Boo” for too many things on the same day.  Anyway, they put on a great show.  Check ’em out… it’s fun, frolicky, goof-off jazz wonderment.

One of my favorite, now-defunct rap groups Jurassic 5 has a new spin-off.  Solo albums first by Cut Chemist, Chali 2Na, and DJ Nu-Mark… Akil the MC has one in the works, too… Now Marc7 and Zakir (aka Soup) have formed a new group called Portable Payback.  Sounds pretty smooth – which fits in with 7even & Soup’s style in J5.

Check them out on the MySpaces: http://www.myspace.com/portablepayback
