ZZ Top!

Tartufi?

Ink & Metal = tattoos, bikes and hard rock

Carrie Nation & The Speakeasy‘s “brass ‘n’ grass”

(and Madeleine Peyroux)

PLUS: the Rum Rebellion, Sagebrush Rock Festival, The Autonomics, Cadence, Rare Monk, Necktie Killer, Jay Tablet’s b-day bash, Larry and His Flask, Third Seven, David Bowers’ return and more.

And finally in Feedback, I tackle the issue of people who want to sit at concerts, people who want to stand and dance, and the conflict between them. I clarify what I meant at the end of this column and talk to a few local venues and events (Les Schwab Amphitheater, Tower Theatre, Athletic Club of Bend, Sisters Folk Festival) to find out how they handle this situation.

Les Schwab Amphitheater adds Counting Crows, ZZ Top and Brandi Carlile

Monday, May 14th, 2012

Les Schwab Amphitheater’s website has three new shows listed this morning. Tickets go on sale Friday (via the site and The Ticket Mill in the Old Mill District), though there is usually some kind of presale the day before, so watch the amphitheater’s Facebook and Twitter for a password, if there is one.

Click the band names for more on the bands, and the prices for more on the shows:
