Here’s what’s happening, musically, in Central Oregon over the next seven days.

– The famous South African singing group Ladysmith Black Mambazo returns to Bend’s Tower Theatre on Sunday night. My colleague David Jasper spoke to Albert Mazibuko about his four decades as a member of the group.

– In my Feedback column, I get out and about for the first time after a couple months of paternity leave and hit the lovable M&J Tavern for local bands Blackflowers Blacksun and Shade 13 before running out of steam and missing Harley Bourbon. NOTE: Blackflowers Blacksun will celebrate the release of two new albums with a show tonight at The Horned Hand. 9 p.m. $5. Silvero opens.

– Over in Sisters, promising new venue The Belfry will kick off its fundraising campaign Saturday night with a show by The JZ Band. Owner Angeline Rhett hopes to raise $34,500 via Kickstarter to make improvements to the 100-year-old building.

Elsewhere in this week’s music section: Todd Clouser’s A Love Electric jazz-rocks The Horned Hand, DJ/producer Eliot Lipp returns to town after police made him turn down the volume in December, Left Coast Country and Kory Quinn team up for a night of roots music and Eight Dollar Mountain gets bluegrassy at Silver Moon, plus Cody Beebe & The Crooks, the fifth annual Jim Jam and more.
