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.

Win two tickets to Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band, plus their CD!

Monday, January 11th, 2010

In case you missed it, the scorching, Indiana-based country-blues trio Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band is coming to the Domino Room on Jan. 18, and they’re bringing a heaping helping of new material with them. (The band just finished recording its new album, due out in May. More on that in Friday’s GO! Magazine.)

Thanks to the fine folks at Random Presents, we’ve got two tickets to the concert to give away to a lucky Frequency reader, along with a copy of the band’s 2008 album, “The Whole Fam Damnily.” That’s about $35 worth of Big Damn stuff. Pretty sweet!

Here’s how you win: Leave a comment on this post, and tell me what would be the name of your namesake band. Only three rules: (1) You have to include your first or last name somewhere in the entry, a la Rev. Peyton. (2) No cursing or otherwise inappropriate language. “Damn” and “hell” are OK, but nothing beyond that. (3) You have to leave a real e-mail address that you can check on Friday, so I can get in touch with you if you win.

Deadline is this Friday at noon. At that time, I’ll pick my favorite band name and you’ll get the CD and two tickets to the show (which really means your name will be on the list, with a “+1″ so you can bring a guest).

Now let’s hear ‘em!

July 17 in GO! Magazine

Friday, July 17th, 2009

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.

New shows coming to Midtown complex

Saturday, June 27th, 2009

The Web site of local promoter Random Presents is one of my daily clicks, and if you live in Central Oregon and you love music, it should be one of yours, too.

That said, it’s been pretty quiet over there over the past several weeks. Random’s steady stream of new concerts slowed a bit in May and June, in part, no doubt, because the economy is forcing everyone — including concert promoters, obviously — to make cautious and smart business decisions these days.

But the Random tap has turned back on, it seems, for a spate of shows in late July and early August, including two biggies to be held at the Midtown Ballroom. Here are the details:

-Roots-reggae legends The Itals will return to the Domino Room on July 15. The Kingston, Jamaica trio has been together for more than 30 years, earning a Grammy nomination in 1987. This is their third or fourth trip to Bend in the past few years.

-The Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band will also return to the Domino Room on July 21, bringing their Indiana hillbilly blues act back to town for the second time in six months.

-Rap fans, here’s your treat: Iconic Oakland rapper Too $hort will play the Midtown Ballroom on July 23, headlining a miles-long bill that includes Mistah Fab, Tha Jacka and Bend’s own Top Shelf.

-This one, I think, will be the biggest draw: A double-bill of weed-happy rap-rockers Kottonmouth Kings and Canadian hip-hop crew Swollen Members will hit the Midtown Ballroom on Aug. 1. Like ‘em or not, those two acts are right up Bend’s alley. Put ‘em together on a Saturday night, and you have what will likely be one of the huge shows of the summer.

-This just in: Georgia-based Southern rock/hip-hop hybrid Rehab will return to town on Aug. 8 for a show at the Domino Room.
