Smoke be damned, the weather’s about to get cooler, and tonight’s as good a night as any for a cold brew and some great local music. Tonight at GoodLife Brewing Co. in the Century Center (70 S.W. Century Drive, Bend), local Americana powerhouse Moon Mountain Ramblers will play the third week of their five-week residency, in which they’re offering a themed set each Tuesday through Sept. 13.

Tonight’s theme: “Dawg Music” (eclectic bluegrass by and inspired by David Grisman)

The rest of the series:

Sept. 6 — “British Invasion” (music of the 1960s, including the Beatles and Stones)

Sept. 13 — “Happy Birthday, Bill Monroe” (tunes by the man who invented bluegrass)

The music runs from 7 to 9 p.m. and it’s free.

Here’s video of the band playing the Flatt & Scruggs classic “Doin’ My Time” from last week’s tribute to great bluegrass vocalists.
