This week in GO! Magazine’s music section

Friday, March 8th, 2013

Here’s what’s happening, musically, in Central Oregon over the next seven days.

– The famous South African singing group Ladysmith Black Mambazo returns to Bend’s Tower Theatre on Sunday night. My colleague David Jasper spoke to Albert Mazibuko about his four decades as a member of the group.

– In my Feedback column, I get out and about for the first time after a couple months of paternity leave and hit the lovable M&J Tavern for local bands Blackflowers Blacksun and Shade 13 before running out of steam and missing Harley Bourbon. NOTE: Blackflowers Blacksun will celebrate the release of two new albums with a show tonight at The Horned Hand. 9 p.m. $5. Silvero opens.

– Over in Sisters, promising new venue The Belfry will kick off its fundraising campaign Saturday night with a show by The JZ Band. Owner Angeline Rhett hopes to raise $34,500 via Kickstarter to make improvements to the 100-year-old building.

Elsewhere in this week’s music section: Todd Clouser’s A Love Electric jazz-rocks The Horned Hand, DJ/producer Eliot Lipp returns to town after police made him turn down the volume in December, Left Coast Country and Kory Quinn team up for a night of roots music and Eight Dollar Mountain gets bluegrassy at Silver Moon, plus Cody Beebe & The Crooks, the fifth annual Jim Jam and more.

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.
