“Check out pressure washer George, he knows-all the chords; Mind, it’s strictly noise, he just wants to make it spray and waste.

“And leaf blower Paul doesn’t mind, if he ruins the neighborhood; He’s got a daytime job, screw everyone else.

“And then the chain-saw man he steps right up to starter rope; And says ‘at last’ just as the tree rings zing.

The motto of Eugene’s “Symphony” Orchestra: “Climate Change For Thee, Not For Me.”

The orchestra — pressure washers, leaf blowers, chain saws, wood chippers, grass edgers, lawn mowers — anything and everything that uses gas-powered internal combustion engines to waste gallons of water, emit dangerous pollutants into the air, and inflict noise pollution outdoors and indoors — is on tour this summer.

And best of all, the orchestra plays in your neighborhood with special all-day performances starting before 7 am on Sundays and holidays … or until the pressure washer, leaf blower, chain saw … is returned to the rental dude.

For Memorial Day, the Eugene Symphony Orchestra (ESO) submitted the following set list:

Come On, Hear The Noise

Mowers On The Storm

Leaf Blowing In The Wind

We’re Not Going To Rake It

Pressure Washer Blues

Think Globally, Forget Locally

Down The Drain

Screw The Polar Bears

Never Heard Of A Broom

What’s Your Problem?

2020 Overture With Wood Chipper

Behind Red Eyes

You Got Fooled Again

One would think that a city (e.g., Eugene), which prides itself for its green consciousness (for everyone else), would take a stand against environmental degradation.

You would be wrong.

In Eugene … The “Band” Plays On … and on … and on.
