This week in GO! Magazine’s music section

Friday, March 16th, 2012

If you will indulge me for just one minute, I would simply like to say that regularly reading our music section in GO! Magazine (every Friday in The Bulletin) is by far your best bet for staying informed about what’s new and what’s happening on Central Oregon’s busy music scene. You have other options for that kind of info, of course, but nowhere will you find coverage as extensive and in-depth as you will in GO!

I say that only because I’m really proud of today’s section. Here’s what’s in there (click to read):

An interview with acoustic guitar pioneer Leo Kottke on the debt he owes to his instrument
An interview with jazz saxophonist Bobby Watson about what he learned from Art Blakey
An interview with rocker Jerry Joseph on his recent Asian tour and new album “Happy Book”
A Q&A with Seattle-based avant-saxophonist Skerik about his new group Bandalabra
A review of “Carnivale Electricos,” the dynamic new album from Galactic
A roundup of solid live-music options for your St. Patrick’s Day revelry

Elsewhere in this week’s music section, you’ll find briefs on The Autonomics’ two-night stand in Bend, James Hunnicutt, Rehab, the 4 Peaks festival lineup, Left Coast Country and more!

Happy Friday, Frequency readers! My Friday has begun later than usual, which means this post is happening later than usual, which means I’m going to get out of the way and get to the links.

-Portland’s Danger Death Ray will bring their DIY attitude and pop-punk sound to Bend for two shows this weekend.

-Guitar virtuoso Leo Kottke returns to the Tower Theatre, ready to entrance local music fans.

-Bay Area hyphy group The Federation will headline a big hip-hop show at the Domino Room tonight.

-Two California rock bands who combine pop and twang — Tracorum and Shayna and the Bulldog — will perform tonight at Silver Moon Brewing.

-There is no shortage of heavy rock happening in Bend’s clubs over the next two nights: Thorns of Creation leads a metal bill at Players; Necktie Killer and No Cash Value will punk around at The Underground; The Dry County Crooks are going to rock the working class at Black Horse Saloon; and KleverKill will play its thunderous rock at The Underground.

-Also, Oregon homeboy The Kid Espi and some buddies will be at the Bendistillery Martini Bar tonight, and local blues-rocker Eric Tollefson is at Silver Moon Brewing on Saturday.

In other words, this weekend is jam-packed! Enjoy it!
