Central Oregon’s Summer Music Preview

Friday, May 18th, 2012

With Memorial Day weekend just a week away, it appears summer — and its glorious, attendant concert season — is finally here. To celebrate, I figured we should take a peek at the live music happening between now and the end of September.

Below, you’ll find as much info as I could dig up about live music happening this summer in Central Oregon, including the Schwab’s shows (both ticketed and the free ones on Sundays), Munch & Music, the Deschutes County Fair, Alive After Five, Show Us Your Spokes, the concert series at the Athletic Club of Bend, and everything currently on the calendars at the Midtown/Domino complex, Silver Moon, The Horned Hand, The Sound Garden and McMenamins. Oh, and some other random stuff that doesn’t neatly fit into any one category.

Plus, there’s a long list of upcoming festivals, including Sisters Folk Festival, Bend Roots Revival, Bend Summer Festival, The Bite of Bend, 4 Peaks Music Festival, High & Dry Bluegrass Festival, Volcanic Funk Festival and more.

Anyway, this should be a pretty comprehensive listing of your opportunities to catch live music this summer, but if you see something I missed, please shoot me an email and let me know.

Central Oregon’s Summer Music Preview

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

I think we can all agree that Memorial Day weekend shows at Les Schwab Amphitheater serve as a sort of unofficial kickoff to the summer concert season, and with the holiday right around the corner, I thought we should take a look at what’s coming our way between now and the end of September.

Below, you’ll find as much info as I could dig up about live music happening this summer in Central Oregon. There’s the Schwab’s shows (both ticketed and the free ones on Sundays), concert series at the Athletic Club of Bend and Black Butte Ranch, and everything currently on the calendars at the Midtown/Domino complex, Silver Moon and McMenamins. Oh, and some other random stuff that doesn’t neatly fit into any one category.

Plus, there’s a long list of upcoming festivals, including Sisters Folk Festival, Bend Roots Revival, Bend Summer Festival, The Bite of Bend, 4 Peaks Music Festival, High & Dry Bluegrass Festival and more.

I know there are a few things missing from this list. Neither the Deschutes County Fair’s music lineup nor the Munch & Music lineup were ready for publication today. But for the most part, this should be a pretty comprehensive listing of your opportunities to catch live music this summer. If you know of something I’ve missed, feel free to shoot me an email and let me know.
