This week in GO! Magazine’s music section

Friday, August 31st, 2012

Every once in a while I look at the music section in GO! and am both proud and amazed at the amount of stuff we get to. We don’t get to it all, but we get to a lot.

This is one of those weeks:

-After years of opening for bigger names and selling out the Tower Theatre, Brandi Carlile is back in Bend Saturday to headline the Les Schwab Amphitheater. Opening act Blitzen Trapper is awesome, too. We talked to both of them.

-In Feedback, I went on a bit of a rant about online vigilantism, spurred by some of the stuff that happened on Facebook earlier this week after Bend Roots Revival organizers canceled their festival.

-One-man band Tony Smiley celebrates the release of his new album “Ticket to the Trip” with a show Thursday at McMenamins Old St. Francis School.

Elsewhere in this week’s music section: Lauren Mann and the Fairly Odd Folk, DJ Wicked’s all-vinyl weekend, Estocar and The The The Thunder at Silver Moon, nelo at Black Butte Ranch, Back From The Dead at Maragas Winery, Moon Mountain Ramblers at Elk Lake Resort, Dixieland Party Band and Friends in La Pine, The JZ Band, a very busy weekend at The Horned Hand and more!

It’s almost February already. Unbelievable. Before we know it, summer will be here.

Until then, however, a few musical happenings to keep you warm and indoors:

-Sort-of-local trio Ruins of Ooah (didge player Tyler Spencer lives in Bend) will handle the free show at McMenamins Old St. Francis School on Wednesday. Read all about their tribal-tronic dance rock here.

-Burly folk singer The White Buffalo pretty much blew my mind Tuesday night at Silver Moon in Bend. Here is my review of the first great show of 2010.

-Venerable Wisconsin folk singer Johnsmith is back in the area to play the first show of the Harmony House concert series on Saturday.

-Tonight at Three Creeks Brewing Co. in Sisters, AMP Media Group is putting on a showcase of its artists. Five singer-songwriters for five bucks. Not bad.

-Tonight in Bend, local odd-rockers Hawgwash and The Kronkmen are teaming up for a night of frivolity at Mountain’s Edge bar.

-Portland invades Bend: The Quick & Easy Boys and Alpaca! play separate shows at Silver Moon Brewing, and DJ Wicked lights up Bendistillery Martini Bar.
