Baby it’s cold outside! So warm up your bones by checking out some live music this week. Here’s what’s happening:
-Local rootsy chanteuse (roots-teuse?) Erin Cole-Baker has a brand new CD ready to go and she’ll celebrate it with a concert Saturday evening in Bend. Here’s the title track from that album, “Talon and Spur,” for your downloading pleasure:
-Things will be buzzing Saturday night at the Midtown music complex, where pop-rocker Bob Schneider will perform upstairs in The Annex while Sublime tribute band 40 Oz. to Freedom plays downstairs in the Domino Room.
-Welcome to the sports section: If you’re a snowrider, you might be checking out the rail jam at Skjersaa’s tonight. If so, head to Players Bar afterward for the official after-party, with music by Tuck and Roll and The Extorted. If you’re a cyclist, may we interest you in the Cross Nat’s Blowout Bash? It’s happening tonight at Midtown Ballroom, with performances by The Sprockettes, Mosley Wotta and The Dirty Words.
-Two mighty fine bands are playing at Silver Moon Brewing & Taproom tonight: The Physical Hearts and Celilo. If you like gentle, twangy indie-pop, you should be at this show. The Physical Hearts were nice enough to send over a song for you to download, too:
-Also in the section this week: Blackflowers Blacksun is back from Alaska and playing at M&J Tavern, Shireen Amini and her full band will light up Silver Moon on Wednesday, Jones Road plays the first installment of “Metal Mondays” at Black Horse Saloon, and The Commercial Underground guitarist Andrew Cooper will show off his solo side tonight at WineStyles.
