My goodness, how ’bout that weather, folks? Get out and about and maybe duck into a spot to hear some live music, OK?
— If you’re one of the growing number of people getting into roots music thanks to Avetts and Mumfords and Lumineers and the like, you should check out The Brothers Comatose Sunday night at The Belfry in Sisters. My colleague David Jasper talked to one of the brothers about coffee, their beloved van, and how they got their start.
— Over at The Horned Hand in Bend, they’ve not only got music planned for two nights this weekend, but also Tuesday (open mic with Ash Reiter and Dan Paggi), Wednesday (Miss Lonely Hearts and Boxcar Stringband) and Thursday (Three Times Bad and The Rum & The Sea) next week. I detailed all those midweek options right here.
Elsewhere in this week’s music section: Lafa Taylor brings bounce-hop to Liquid Lounge, Toxic Zombie invades Redmond, Ian McFeron makes a stop at The Sound Garden, Bend’s Across the Great Divide pays tribute to The Band and Mark Ransom’s birthday party doubles as a benefit for Ukes for Youth at The Belfry, with four good local bands on tap.
