Today has been circled on the calendars of a few hundred (or several hundred) of Bend's live music fans. The wait is over and roots music fans can finally rejoice because Yonder Mountain String Band is in town tonight at the Midtown Ballroom.
If you've seen YMSB's high-energy Americana show in Bend before, you know that people here get down to this Colorado quartet. Like, really, really get down. I can't say for certain, but expect some hula hooping up in the joint tonight.
There are still tickets available, according to the promoter. Bendticket.com is selling advance will-call-only tickets until 3:30pm today. After that, check Ranch Records.
The show is at 9pm. And it's all ages.
