This week in GO! Magazine’s music section

Saturday, November 12th, 2011

(Note: Oops, I meant to post this yesterday. Apologies to the Friday events that have now already happened.)

First of all, if you love music, Central Oregon, music in Central Oregon, or you just love having things to do in Central Oregon even if they’re not related to music, you should check out this week’s GO! Magazine, where we celebrate today’s date — 11/11/11 — by recognizing 11 people, places and things that have shaped the regional arts and culture scene over the past 11 years.

It’s a fun package of stories and photos. (There’s a photo of Ben Harper at the Les Schwab Amphitheater that is a must see.)

Anyway, you can find it right here. Now onto the music:

Wednesday brings a strong progressive bluegrass bill to Bend when Greensky Bluegrass and Hot Buttered Rum play GoodLife Brewing Company.

The Maiden Bend Bluegrass Fest showcases the talents of six female musicians with local ties.

–The Horned Hand hosts a couple of local faves: The White Buffalo on Monday and Great American Taxi on Thursday.

Provo, Utah’s The Brocks are coming to Bend, and for 60 percent of ’em, that means a trip home.

Elsewhere in this week’s music section: The return of Warm Gadget, Mars Retrieval Unit lands at Silver Moon, The Church of Neil is in session, Shawn McDonald plays at Journey church, Brothers Young headline an alt-folk bill, and a slew of heavy bands are playing around town this week.

Playlists for your 11/11/11 listening pleasure

Friday, November 11th, 2011

I’m a huge nerd. So I went through my iTunes and picked out a bunch of my favorite “track 11″ songs … you know, like they were the 11th track on their album … and compiled them into five different YouTube playlists.

So there are 55 songs here (all track 11s), and they’re all awesome. Or at least I think so. Just click on the style of music that fits your taste or current mood and let it play. Then, come back here, let me know what you thought, and try another!

Happy 11/11/11!
