Sore throat and an achy body here, folks, so I’m going to keep this short. And if you don’t hear from me over the weekend, now you know why.

-Tiempo Libre is bringing an authentic Latin-jazz dance party to the Tower Theatre. These guys are awfully good at what they do. Want to win “Bach In Havana,” their new CD? Click here and enter the contest. Deadline is noon today.

-Irish punks the Dropkick Murphys sold out the Midtown Ballroom on Sunday night. I was there, and this is my review. To see lots of great pictures of the night, click here.

-Folk faves Keith Greeninger and Dayan Kai will celebrate the release of their new album with a show Saturday night in Sisters.

-Classic rock will never die! Especially if bands like The Lonely H keep reviving it.

-Reggae great Eek-A-Mouse will return to the Domino Room in Bend next week.

-Check out the seriously diverse lineup of offerings at Silver Moon Brewing over the next seven days. Seriously, they have a lot of good bands coming through there this week! Kudos to Silver Moon and their talent buyer Cassie Moore.

That’s it, folks. To read it all, pick up a copy of the newspaper. But first, send your positive vibes my way.

Bulletin photographer Andy Tullis checked out the Dropkick Murphys concert — the sold-out-on-a-Sunday-night-in-November Dropkick Murphys concert! — at Midtown Ballroom Sunday night and came back with tons of great photos. Here are a few of them. My full review of the show will be in Friday’s GO! Magazine.

P.S. If you or your buddy got up on stage at any point, you definitely want to click through the jump!

Man, it’s windy outside as I write this. Fall is finally, really here. Or maybe that’s winter.

Whatever, the seasons may change, but the local music scene churns on. This weekend’s lineup is highlighted by some Canadian hip-hop, some Irish punk rock, and a benefit for the folks in our own community who need it most.

Hey … if you go out and see some music and snap a few pictures, why don’t you add them the Frequency’s Flickr pool?

-Two years after Flogging Molly packed the Midtown Ballroom, their fellow Irish-punk rockers Dropkick Murphys are visiting the same venue on Sunday. Read Al Barr’s take on the band’s success and what it has meant for their fan base.

-Swollen Members ought to consider just renting a place in Bend, perhaps. They’re back tonight, just a couple months after opening for Kottonmouth Kings at Midtown Ballroom. This time, though, the Canadian rap quartet is touring behind its brand new album, “Armed to the Teeth,” and will headline the Domino Room.

-For the fourth year in a row, a lot of local folk/bluegrass/Americana bands are gathering at Bend’s Community Center for Hoedown for Hunger, where proceeds will benefit the center’s Feed The Hungry program.

-California’s softcore ska dudes the Mad Caddies played at Mountain’s Edge bar in Bend on Sunday. I dug it.

-Elsewhere in town this week, Dana and Susan Robinson play a house concert, Shireen Amini settles into Jackson’s Corner, The Snag will do a free show at a church, and Cloaked Characters and The Bayliens will light up the Bendistillery Martini Bar.

As always, not all those stories will be available to everyone. If you run into a paywall, you’ll need to subscribe to The Bulletin’s online edition or, better yet, pick up a print copy of today’s paper.

Oi! Oi! Oi! Dropkick Murphys are coming to Bend

Thursday, August 13th, 2009

It’s official: The popular Irish-punk band Dropkick Murphys are scheduled to play at the Midtown Ballroom in Bend on Nov. 8. (That’s almost two years since another Irish-influenced punk band played one of the most exhilarating and packed shows I’ve ever seen at the Midtown.)

Tickets cost $22 in advance, and are available here.
