Flyer: Problem Stick tomorrow at Silver Moon

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

Go see your local wrecked-rock dealers Problem Stick tomorrow night at Silver Moon, OK? With a cool flyer like this, they deserve your patronage. (Please note: The show will start around 8 p.m., not 9 p.m.)

Team Conan, of course! Is there any other option?

The Frequency blog is on Team Conan, of course! Is there any other option?

In honor of the recent announcement that Bend will host the first-ever National Beard and Moustache Championships in June, we here at GO! Magazine dedicated most of today’s music section to facial hair, and the faces who wear it. We’ve got a cover subject who plays old-time blues, never smiles, and keeps a thick beard, plus my overview of the historical relationship between musicians and hairy chins. Let’s cut to the face … er, I mean chase:

-Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band is back in town with a slew of stompin’ new country-blues songs. Read my interview with the Reverend here.

-“The Sound & The Furry: A farcical look at the hairy history of rock.” I’m just so proud of that headline, I had to point it out to you. ALSO, be sure to pick up the print version of the paper so you can take our beard-rocker quiz!

And in the non-beardo section of the section:

-On Wednesday, Fascination and Vinyl Film will fill Silver Moon Brewing with catchy, dramatic pop-rock that’s not often seen ’round these parts.

-Another rare sighting for Bend: Dance-punk, brought to you (and Players Bar) by Seattle up-and-comers The Redwood Plan.

-You love pirates. And you love bands. So you should love a pirate band, right? Test that theory tonight with eyepatch-punks The Deadly Gallows.

-The list of noteworthy local-band gigs is newsier than usual this week, with Jukebot’s inaugural show, a retooled Sofa Kings at M&J, and a weekend full of fun at Mountain’s Edge, where Problem Stick, The Dirty Words, Necktie Killer and Wetsock will test-drive the new stage.

Again, grabbing an actual copy of The Bulletin today gets you not only all these articles and more, but also: BEARD-ROCKER QUIZ.

Happy Friday-before-Thanksgiving, folks! Do you know what the Friday before Thanksgiving means? It means next week is Thanksgiving, which means good food, days off work, and sports on television. (This is as good a time as any, I suppose, to inform you good people that I’m a college basketball — specifically University of Kentucky basketball — fanatic, and that fanaticism may surface here on the blog from time to time over the next six months.)

Anyway, I love the holidays. I love the parties and the decorations and the merriment and the quality time with loved ones and all the other stuff that comes with the holidays. And I love Christmas music, too. And none of the music detailed below is Christmas music, but that’s coming soon enough.

In the meantime, here’s what’s happening this week on Central Oregon’s live-music scene:

-Veteran local musician and multi-instrumentalist Brad Jones is best-known ’round these parts for his roles in Defekt-N-Jones, The Mostest and, if you’re an old-timer, Floor-Ride. Now, he’s unleashing his solo album “No Strings” on the world with a CD-release show on Saturday night.

-Two opportunities to hit the Tower Theatre, take in some good music, and contribute to a good cause: Tonight is the Homegrown Music Showcase, benefiting the Ronald McDonald House, and Saturday night is 3 Leg Torso, with proceeds going to the Cascade Community School of Music.

-Looking for something to do the night before Thanksgiving? How about GWAR! Because nothing goes with turkey and stuffing like mock murders and fake blood. (I, for one, am thankful that this clip exists.)

-The Ascetic Junkies are a good band from Portland that mixes bluegrass and pop. They’ll be at Silver Moon Brewing on Saturday.

-Roots-rock round-up: Freak Mountain Ramblers, Too Slim & the Taildraggers, Moon Mountain Ramblers.

-Locals round-up: Andy Armer, Necktie Killer, Klever Kill, Problem Stick, Little White Lyins, Leif James & the Struggle, and Amsterdam’s birthday bash.

All those links should lead to stories for subscribers to The Bulletin’s Web site. If they don’t, you’ll either need to subscribe or grab a printed copy of today’s Bulletin.

on air

You may or may not have checked it out yet, but sitting over there in the sidebar to the right is a streaming music player I like to call Frequency Radio.

Over the past couple days, I added a few tracks to it, including the Mostest song and The Lonely H song you can download to your own computer here.

And now, a little bit about the other bands joining the player:
