Looking for something to do this weekend? The upcoming music lineup is looking mighty fine with a little something for everyone coming to town in the next five days.
Tonight, locals Tone Red will be at Silvermoon Brewing with their country-rock and soothing female vocals. 9pm. Also tonight, English indie rockers Scars on 45 will be bringing their pop jams to the Century Center, we and guarantee you’ll recognize their music from the background of a generic TV drama you've watched recently. 7pm.
During the day on Saturday, Bend Pride will have a great lineup of local musicians celebrating culture and diversity in our community, not to mention food vendors, family friendly events and libations sponsored by Absolut Vodka.

Sunday afternoon, Poor Moon, a collective of indie rockers of Fleet Foxes fame will be playing their brand of finger picking ambient country-folk at the first Summer Sunday concert at the Les Schwab Amphitheater. The best part is it’s FREE! 2:30pm.
