The 11 best concerts of 2011 in Central Oregon

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

Four things:

1) I saw a lot of live music in 2011, and below you’ll find reviews, videos and photos of my 11 favorite concerts of the year, plus links to more on each.

2) You’ll note, perhaps, that these happened at 11 different venues in Central Oregon. I thought that was cool.

3) Why 11? Because I couldn’t bear to cut any of them to get it down to 10!

4) As long as you’re here, be sure to click over to our Near/Far page and check out the rest of our coverage of 2011′s best music, including free, legal downloads of the year’s best songs!

This week in GO! Magazine’s music section

Friday, October 28th, 2011

Because of the party hearty nature of Halloween weekend — and the sheer number of bands playing ‘ween-themed shows over the next few nights — we’re going to venture outside of the music section this week into GO! Magazine’s cover story, which features not 20 … not 30 … not 40 … but 50+ Halloween parties, concerts, trick or treats, costume contests, films, readings and more.

If you don’t find something spooky to do in these listings, you just aren’t looking hard enough. Happy Halloween! Y’all have fun out and be safe out there.

Elsewhere:

The Horned Hand hosts the psychedelic garage-pop of Gardens.

Busy and beloved local drummer Jared Forqueran is moving to Denver, but not before playing a couple farewell gigs this weekend.

I review The Felice Brothers’ show at Silver Moon Brewing & Taproom. (Bonus photos and video here.)

And the rest of the music section: Head for the Hills and Dead Winter Carpenters, a benefit for Gary Bowne, Moira Smiley & VOCO, Children of Nova and My Favorite Sacred Songs. Plus Blackstrap, Dela Project, Third Seven and Truckstop Gravy and a whole bunch of other stuff.

My review of Monday’s Felice Brothers concert at Silver Moon Brewing is in today’s GO! Magazine in The Bulletin, and here are some bonus photos and videos of the show.

The photos were taken by The Bulletin’s Rob Kerr, and the videos were shot by me. Enjoy!

This week in GO! Magazine’s music section

Friday, October 21st, 2011

How much music can you cram into the music section of The Bulletin’s GO! Magazine? Approximately this much:

“The Miles Davis Experience: 1949-1959″ is a multimedia tribute to the jazz icon coming to the Tower Theatre.

The Felice Brothers could’ve hopped on the “new Americana” gravy train and they chose not to. Instead, their new album “Celebration, Florida” is a murky, weird and wonderful slab of electro/pop/rock.

The Green headlines a reggae bill at the Domino Room Monday that also includes Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad.

Also in the music section: King Yellowman returns to town, the Tower of Power show is sold out, guitar hero Scott Pemberton plays Silver Moon, a cappella groups On the Rocks and Divisi will perform to benefit Sisters schools, Celtic folkie Colleen Raney kicks off the new HarmonyHouse season, a Tumalo house concert will benefit the High & Dry Bluegrass Festival, and Innovation Theatre features an eclectic weekend, with Violin vs. Vinyl and Jay Tablet tonight, 2Mex and a hip-hop bill Saturday and 2nd Hand Soldiers playing a benefit for a local guy with cancer on Sunday. Oh, plus we have blurbs on Stephanie Schneiderman, Just People and Viva Le Vox!
