For the first few months of 2009, people asked me over and over if I’d heard what big-name bands would be playing on Memorial Day weekend at Bend’s Les Schwab Amphitheater this year. As the days passed, my answer became more and more pessimistic, and their disappointment became harder and harder to hide. How quickly we forget that, while we did enjoy some great concerts last year, the Schwab was silent at this time in 2007. And so it is again this year.
But in today’s GO! Magazine, we have lots of great options for all you lovers of live music out there. Click the band names to read more about each of these fine shows, and don’t miss the downloads in between:
