[Review] Memorial Day weekend at Les Schwab Amphitheater: The Shins, Tenacious D and Beck

Friday, June 1st, 2012

One of the best things about my job is being surprised by an artist and/or a show.

And by that measure alone, Memorial Day weekend at Bend’s Les Schwab Amphitheater was a success. Two of the three nights of concerts — Tenacious D and The Sights on Saturday, and Beck and Metric on Sunday — were, to me, somewhere in the neighborhood of shockingly good. The third — The Shins, The Head and The Heart and Blind Pilot on Friday — was exactly what I expected it to be.

If you’re even looking at Frequency, chances are you know that the Bend Summer Concerts series kicks off this weekend at Les Schwab Amphitheater with shows by The Shins on Friday night, Tenacious D on Saturday and Beck Sunday.

I’ll be posting a bunch of photos of all three here. First up: The Shins, plus opener The Head and The Heart and part of the more than 5,200 people who showed up for the concert.

One of The Bulletin’s photographers, Joe Kline, was on hand to document the evening, and he got a ton of great shots, which you can check out below. Be sure to scroll all the way through — there’s a very sweet little photo and caption near the end!

The Shins, Beck to kick off Les Schwab Amphitheater’s concert season in May

Sunday, February 5th, 2012

Remember yesterday when I said I’d parse the Sasquatch festival lineup for clues about who might play Bend’s Les Schwab Amphitheater on Memorial Day weekend?

Well, it may be too late for that.

Today, the amphitheater announced two concerts early in its 2012 season. The details:

The Shins
with Blind Pilot and The Head and The Heart

Friday, May 25
$35 plus fees in advance, $38 day of show
Tickets on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Friday, special online presale Thursday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Presale password: rivershow)

Beck
with Metric

Sunday, May 27
$41 plus fees in advance, $43 day of show
Tickets on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Friday, special online presale Thursday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Presale password: rivershow)

Tickets will be available via www.bendconcerts.com, and The Ticket Mill in the Old Mill District will be open Friday and Saturday and will offer a locals’ deal: The first 300 tickets purchased with cash will save on service charges.

This is terrific news for the amphitheater and the summer concert season as a whole. Now the question is: Will the Schwab be able to get someone for Saturday, May 26 and, if so, who? Based on the Sasquatch lineup, the reasonable guesses include Jack White, Bon Iver, Tenacious D and perhaps Pretty Lights.
