Central Oregon’s Week of Awesome Music, Part 3: Dierks Bentley, John Shipe

Wednesday, August 10th, 2011

This week features a ridiculous number of opportunities to catch quality live music in Central Oregon, so I’m highlighting some of the best options for each night. But remember, you can always find lots more at The Bulletin’s online event calendar.

Tonight brings the biggest country act of the summer, Dierks Bentley, to Les Schwab Amphitheater. Showtime’s at 6:30 p.m., and there are still tickets available at the box office outside the gate. Read my interview with Bentley by clicking here.

If a Dierks ticket is too rich for your blood, go check out the fine songwriter John Shipe and his trio at McMenamins. That one’s at 7 p.m. and it’s free.

Coming tomorrow: Shemekia Copeland …
