This week in GO! Magazine’s music section

– Portland band 3 Leg Torso plays a show to benefit music programs at Bend’s Summit High School.

– My Feedback column recaps the story of the Kanye West-in-Bend show that never was, digs up some estimates of what it would cost to bring Kanye to Les Schwab Amphitheater, and reminds everyone that if something seems too good to be true, it probably is.

– My ears always enjoy Slightly Stoopid a little more than my brain thinks they should.

Elsewhere in the music section: The Quick & Easy Boys in Sisters, Jackie Greene visits the Tower Theatre, Matt Hopper returns to Silver Moon, Jon Wayne & The Pain and Brothers Gow play back-to-back nights at McMenamins, the Tower hosts the Masters of Motown tribute show, System and Station hits The Horned Hand and more.

(Note: I would strongly encourage you to seek out the print version of GO! Magazine (in today’s issue of The Bulletin) to see the nifty Twister-themed art and layout that my colleagues Greg and Althea did for the section this week. It looks great, and you should really see it in all its dead-tree glory!)

Central Oregon’s music scene offers a little bit of everything this week. There’s jazz (Jeff Lorber, Patrick Lamb, Renato Caranto Quartet), rock (Zepparella), hip-hop (Tech N9ne, Eddie Valiant, Sadistik, Kristoff Krane), punk (Emily’s Army), reggae (Jon Wayne and The Pain), country (Blaine Larsen), folk (Vandaveer, Cheyenne Marie Mize) and more. Plus, a benefit and celebration for PoetHouse Art, the Deschutes County Fair’s concert lineup and the last preliminary round of Last Band Standing.

Pretty packed and diverse, as usual. Here’s what’s in there:

–One of the finest young bluegrass bands in the world, the Steep Canyon Rangers, play in Sisters Monday night. Unfortunately, they might be fighting the Oregon Ducks’ national championship bid for eyeballs. We compare the two, Rangers vs. Ducks.

–Sunday night’s Northwest hip-hop showcase will feature two of Seattle’s finest, Champagne Champagne and Mad Rad, plus locals Cloaked Characters and JoAnna Lee. Get the skinny here.

–I went and saw the venerable Reverend Horton Heat on Dec. 29 and wasn’t blown away, but came outta there with a lot of respect for what they do and what they’ve done. Read my whole review here.

–The young, faith-focused Prineville band ER has a new CD out and they’re celebrating with a show tonight. Here are the details.

–Elsewhere in the music section, we have Empty Space Orchestra’s January residency at Silver Moon, Anastacia and the JazzBros at McMenamins, and Jon Wayne and The Pain’s funk/reggae/rock at Silver Moon.
