This week in GO! Magazine’s music section

Friday, July 8th, 2011

As summer unfolds, the local music scene is getting busier and busier. This week is no exception. Here’s what’s in the music section of this week’s GO! Magazine:

–Country/bluegrass crossover stars Alison Krauss & Union Station return to Bend’s Les Schwab Amphitheater Saturday. (By the way, you really should grab a print copy of The Bulletin today. The cover of GO! Magazine is designed so that you can tear it off and fold it into a functional paper airplane to commemorate Krauss’ new album “Paper Airplane.” Fun!)

–Free, outdoor concert series are getting going all over Central Oregon. We detail Alive After 5 in Bend, Music on the Green in Redmond and Picnic in the Park in Prineville.

–The Bend Summer Festival will be crawling with bands all weekend, including Toad the Wet Sprocket, Ottmar Liebert, Night Ranger, Coco Montoya, The Dirt Drifters, Luce, Mosley Wotta and tons of locals.

–The Bend Metal Fest gathers five solid local metal band for a night of headbanging tonight at the Domino Room.

Elsewhere in this week’s music section: Washington bluegrassers Polecat play twice, gifted Portland MC Illmaculate visits Madhappy Lounge, a roving group of Accordion Babes invades McMenamins, The Barn in Sisters hosts a fundraiser for the High & Dry Bluegrass Festival, and a Last Band Standing update.

Big weekend out there. Have fun, y’all!
