This week in GO! Magazine’s music section

Friday, October 28th, 2011

Because of the party hearty nature of Halloween weekend — and the sheer number of bands playing ‘ween-themed shows over the next few nights — we’re going to venture outside of the music section this week into GO! Magazine’s cover story, which features not 20 … not 30 … not 40 … but 50+ Halloween parties, concerts, trick or treats, costume contests, films, readings and more.

If you don’t find something spooky to do in these listings, you just aren’t looking hard enough. Happy Halloween! Y’all have fun out and be safe out there.

Elsewhere:

The Horned Hand hosts the psychedelic garage-pop of Gardens.

Busy and beloved local drummer Jared Forqueran is moving to Denver, but not before playing a couple farewell gigs this weekend.

I review The Felice Brothers’ show at Silver Moon Brewing & Taproom. (Bonus photos and video here.)

And the rest of the music section: Head for the Hills and Dead Winter Carpenters, a benefit for Gary Bowne, Moira Smiley & VOCO, Children of Nova and My Favorite Sacred Songs. Plus Blackstrap, Dela Project, Third Seven and Truckstop Gravy and a whole bunch of other stuff.

Happy Halloween, kids and grown-up kids!

I’ve got no snappy intro this week, but I do want to know this: What are you dressing up as for Halloween? Let me know in the comments. (I’m quite tempted to shave a corn maze into my hair and go around interrupting peoples’ conversations.)

I’ll tell you what Bend is dressing up as this year: A town with a ton of bands playing at clubs all over the place. Here are five shows I wrote about:

-Person People and The Staxx Brothers tonight at the Domino Room.
-Empty Space Orchestra Saturday at McMenamins Old St. Francis School.
-Warm Gadget and Goodbye Dyna Saturday at Silver Moon Brewing & Taproom.
-Necktie Killer, Tuck & Roll and Danger Death Ray Saturday at Black Horse Saloon.
-Moon Mountain Ramblers Saturday at the Domino Room.

That’s not all that’s happening. Check out The Bulletin’s events calendar to find a long list of festivities, or better yet, pick up a print copy of GO! Magazine, which contains both the calendar and the “Area 97 Clubs” page, which has even more stuff listed.

Of course, not everything that’s happening this weekend is Halloween-related. Here are a couple options where you won’t feel weird if you don’t dress in costume:

-The popular California ska band Mad Caddies are performing on Sunday at Mountain’s Edge bar, which is the new name of the old Timbers South in Bend. (Click here to read about why the Caddies are playing a place that’s quite a bit smaller than the venues they usually play.)

-On Sunday, Christian hitmakers Todd Agnew and Building 429 will put on a concert at the Christian Life Center in Bend.

So obviously, plenty of choices out there. Everyone have fun and be safe.
