Start time: 8 p.m.(ish). Cover: $5. Download a song from the new Finn Riggins album “Vs Wilderness” by clicking here, and here’s the band playing another new tune last week in Portland:
Also tonight! Three of Bend’s best and best-known hip-hop acts are doing a free show at Boondock’s Bar & Grill, 70 N.W. Newport Ave., in Bend. Top Shelf, Mosley Wotta, and Cloaked Characters will be there, as will DJ Hit-n-Runn. Click to watch Mosley Wotta’s nifty video for “Boom For Real,” or stay right here and watch the Cloaked Characters’ clip for “Lost Package.”
Also tonight! The Bend Roots Revival officially kicks off. We’ll have full coverage of the weekend’s events in tomorrow’s GO! Magazine, but tonight, there’s a meet-and-greet and open mic at Parrilla Grill at 6 p.m., followed by some Grateful Dead cover action from Back From the Dead (5:30-7 p.m.) and Rising Tide (7-9 p.m.) over at the Victorian Cafe.
Also tonight! Heavy, heavy, heavy metal of the local variety at Ye Olde Underground … ahem … The Underground, which is at 2221 N.E. Third St., in Bend. We’re talking Wache The Dead, Almost Is Nothing, Booze Devil and Dusk’s Embrace. The brutality will begin at 8 p.m., and $5 gets you in. I’m too lazy to copy in all the MySpace sites for these bands, but they’re listed on the flyer, so here’s that:
Also tonight! Necktie Killers at The Summit, ’80s night at Players, Rough String Band at Northside, The Quons at 28, and much more. Find it all on the events calendar at The Bulletin’s Web site.
