This week in GO! Magazine’s music section

Friday, August 24th, 2012

ZZ Top!

Tartufi?

Ink & Metal = tattoos, bikes and hard rock

Carrie Nation & The Speakeasy‘s “brass ‘n’ grass”

(and Madeleine Peyroux)

PLUS: the Rum Rebellion, Sagebrush Rock Festival, The Autonomics, Cadence, Rare Monk, Necktie Killer, Jay Tablet’s b-day bash, Larry and His Flask, Third Seven, David Bowers’ return and more.

And finally in Feedback, I tackle the issue of people who want to sit at concerts, people who want to stand and dance, and the conflict between them. I clarify what I meant at the end of this column and talk to a few local venues and events (Les Schwab Amphitheater, Tower Theatre, Athletic Club of Bend, Sisters Folk Festival) to find out how they handle this situation.

This week in GO! Magazine’s music section

Friday, January 27th, 2012

Good morning, friendly Frequency reader! Would you like a roundup of what’s in today’s music section in The Bulletin? Good, because I’ve got one:

Wisconsin folk singer Johnsmith returns to Central Oregon next week for four shows over nine days.

–In my Feedback column this week, I extol the virtues of the opening band and check out Animal Eyes and Rural Demons at The Horned Hand last weekend.

Traveling family band The Hollands! will kick off their tour Sunday in Sisters.

–Plus: Half-of-Hillstomp Henry Kammerer comes to town with McDougall, Rosie Ledet brings zydeco to the Domino Room on Saturday, JPOD the Beat Chef heads up an electronic bill tonight at Midtown, “The Goat Rodeo Sessions Live” film screens at the Regal Old Mill 16, indie-folk chanteuse Ezza Rose plays The Wine Shop, Cadence takes on Players Bar, and much more!

talking about local music on Clear 101.7 FM today, Thursday and Friday

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

I totally forgot to mention this Monday and Tuesday (I blame the peppermint bark haze I was living in at the time) but Dori Donoho — host of the excellent Homegrown music show on Clear 101.7 FM and all-around awesome supporter of local music — was nice enough to have me as a guest for her daily Homegrown Hits segment this week to talk about the year in music in Central Oregon.

On Monday and Tuesday, we played songs by Laura Curtis and Mike Potter, respectively, and chatted a bit about each of those artists. Today, we’ll feature Cadence. Tomorrow it’s Tuck and Roll, and Friday is Larry and His Flask. All of these artists and songs are available for free and legal download on The Bulletin’s Near/Far compilation of 2011′s best tunes.

Anyway, the segment airs around 10:30 a.m. (that’s soon for you Cadence fans!) but you should go ahead and tune in earlier and listen to Dori’s whole show, because it’s cool and she’s cool and you’re cool, too … right?

ESO residency continues; White Orange out, Cadence in

Friday, December 16th, 2011

For some reason, Saturday’s show by local post-rock faves Empty Space Orchestra at Silver Moon Brewing & Taproom didn’t run in our live-music listings in today’s GO! Magazine. Not sure why.

But the show is definitely happening, although the previously announced opener — Portland’s White Orange — had to cancel to deal with a family situation. Instead, local pop-rock band Cadence will open the show, which will get underway around 9 p.m.

Tickets are $5 in advance here, or $7 at the door. Apologies to both bands for not getting the gig in the paper. As penance, here’s the poster for ESO’s ongoing December residency at Silver Moon!

Central Oregon’s Week of Awesome Music, Part 4: Shemekia Copeland, Brad Jones, Cadence

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

This week features a ridiculous number of opportunities to catch quality live music in Central Oregon, so I’m highlighting some of the best options for each night. But remember, you can always find lots more at The Bulletin’s online event calendar.

Tonight’s treat is a free show at Munch & Music by powerful blues singer Shemekia Copeland. You can read more about her here. M&M gets going around 5:30 p.m., and Copeland will take the stage … sometime after that. Just be there and be ready.

Also tonight, a couple of local CD-release shows worth mentioning:

–Bend-based pop-rock band Cadence has a new EP ready for the world, and they’ll celebrate with a show at tonight at the old Boomtown location (910 N.W. Harriman Street, Bend). Mosley Wotta and Symmetry/Symmetry will also perform. I think it starts at 7 p.m. and cover is $5. This band writes grand, sweeping songs that are super catchy, so go check ‘em out.

–Longtime local musician Brad Jones also has a new CD to release, his first under the name Keez. He’s also throwing a release show at 9 tonight at Madhappy Lounge (850 N.W. Brooks St., Bend). It’ll be free to get in. Read up on Jones here, and listen to some of his tunes here.
