Oops … forgot to do our weekly roundup of the music-y stuff in GO! Magazine.
First of all, there are several ways this week that you can take in excellent live music while also helping out a local cause:
-Tonight, Nashville bluegrassers The Infamous Stringdusters are playing at Black Butte Ranch near Sisters. It’s only $5, and proceeds benefit the Americana Project high school songwriting class.
-Saturday night, go see Anastacia Beth Scott and Electric Sudaki at Silver Moon and support Chimps Inc., the chimp sanctuary near Tumalo.
-Next week, the local-arts festival Bend Roots Revival will be raising funds for its event, which will happen in late September. On Thursday, head to the Tulen Center and see Empty Space Orchestra, The Mostest, Leif James and Brazilian musician Marcello Bernardes, and help fund the Roots Revival, which is one of our town’s coolest cultural events.
Now let’s see, what else?
-New Orleans funk-hop quartet E.O.E. preaches unity through diversity.
-Oakland old-school rapper Too $hort is coming to Bend.
-A new nightclub, The Underground, is opening tonight in the space formerly occupied by Club 97. Local rockers El Dante are gonna open it up right.
-South African singing group Ladysmith Black Mambazo is back at the Tower Theatre, and tickets are either already gone, or very close to being gone.
-Also, the Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band is back in town, The Mostest will play Show Us Your Spokes tonight at Parrilla, and Dubious Ranger will roll into Silver Moon next week. Read about all of them here.
