Central Oregon’s Week of Awesome Music, Part 4: Shemekia Copeland, Brad Jones, Cadence

Thursday, August 11th, 2011, 2:35 pm by Ben Salmon

This week features a ridiculous number of opportunities to catch quality live music in Central Oregon, so I’m highlighting some of the best options for each night. But remember, you can always find lots more at The Bulletin’s online event calendar.

Tonight’s treat is a free show at Munch & Music by powerful blues singer Shemekia Copeland. You can read more about her here. M&M gets going around 5:30 p.m., and Copeland will take the stage … sometime after that. Just be there and be ready.

Also tonight, a couple of local CD-release shows worth mentioning:

–Bend-based pop-rock band Cadence has a new EP ready for the world, and they’ll celebrate with a show at tonight at the old Boomtown location (910 N.W. Harriman Street, Bend). Mosley Wotta and Symmetry/Symmetry will also perform. I think it starts at 7 p.m. and cover is $5. This band writes grand, sweeping songs that are super catchy, so go check ’em out.

–Longtime local musician Brad Jones also has a new CD to release, his first under the name Keez. He’s also throwing a release show at 9 tonight at Madhappy Lounge (850 N.W. Brooks St., Bend). It’ll be free to get in. Read up on Jones here, and listen to some of his tunes here.
