Team Conan, of course! Is there any other option?

The Frequency blog is on Team Conan, of course! Is there any other option?

In honor of the recent announcement that Bend will host the first-ever National Beard and Moustache Championships in June, we here at GO! Magazine dedicated most of today’s music section to facial hair, and the faces who wear it. We’ve got a cover subject who plays old-time blues, never smiles, and keeps a thick beard, plus my overview of the historical relationship between musicians and hairy chins. Let’s cut to the face … er, I mean chase:

-Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band is back in town with a slew of stompin’ new country-blues songs. Read my interview with the Reverend here.

-“The Sound & The Furry: A farcical look at the hairy history of rock.” I’m just so proud of that headline, I had to point it out to you. ALSO, be sure to pick up the print version of the paper so you can take our beard-rocker quiz!

And in the non-beardo section of the section:

-On Wednesday, Fascination and Vinyl Film will fill Silver Moon Brewing with catchy, dramatic pop-rock that’s not often seen ’round these parts.

-Another rare sighting for Bend: Dance-punk, brought to you (and Players Bar) by Seattle up-and-comers The Redwood Plan.

-You love pirates. And you love bands. So you should love a pirate band, right? Test that theory tonight with eyepatch-punks The Deadly Gallows.

-The list of noteworthy local-band gigs is newsier than usual this week, with Jukebot’s inaugural show, a retooled Sofa Kings at M&J, and a weekend full of fun at Mountain’s Edge, where Problem Stick, The Dirty Words, Necktie Killer and Wetsock will test-drive the new stage.

Again, grabbing an actual copy of The Bulletin today gets you not only all these articles and more, but also: BEARD-ROCKER QUIZ.
