This week in GO! Magazine’s music section

Saturday, June 11th, 2011

(For the second week in a row, I forgot to post this on Friday. My apologies to the events that already happened … on Friday night.)

Two shows to kick off summer series, two album release events, two benefits for people halfway across the country and one farewell by an old favorite. It’s a crowded music section in GO! Magazine, as usual. Here’s what’s in there:

The Clear Summer Nights concert series kicks off Thursday with singer-songwriter Brett Dennen and opening act Dawes.

Bluegrassy Americana family band The Chapmans comes to town Sunday to start off the free Summer Sunday Concerts series at Les Schwab Amphitheater.

Local folk-pop songstress Erin Cole-Baker celebrates the release of her fine new album “Big Sky.”

On Saturday, the Rise Up Spring Jamboree doubles not only as a heck of good time, but also an EP-release show for former Bendites (now Portlanders) The Autonomics. (And … oh yeah … a closing set by Larry and His Flask.)

Northwest acoustic Americana band Misty River is saying farewell (for now, at least) with a show at The Old Stone in Bend.

Elsewhere in this week’s music section, we’ve got all the details on Australian guitar wiz Tommy Emmanuel at the Tower Theatre, Portland Americana act Redwood Son at McMenamins, two house concerts featuring three fine songwriters and two separate dinners/concerts to benefit the tornado-ravaged folks in Joplin, Mo. Plus a Last Band Standing update.

Have an awesome weekend everyone!
