Holy cowboy boots, tank tops and leather vests, Blender readers, what a show on Wednesday night at the Midtown. It was Mr. David Allan Coe, the legendary outlaw country/rock star headlining a night that brought in several hundred folks of varying ages, styles, and sizes of cowboy hats. There was a good delegation of bikers, some real Wrangler and belt-buckle cowboys, tatoos a plenty, and then some regular run-of-the-mill Bend sceneters -- and all of these people were drinking quite liberally. If you weren't entertained by the music (which was nearly impossible) you certainly had a good time people watching...double the entertainment.

While David Allan Coe was of course the main attraction, perhaps the most interesting element of this out-of-the-ordinary show (at least from a local music standpoint) was the reception received by locals Problem Stick. The band, known for it's self-described "wrecked rock" countried up some of its tunes, while also keeping things heavy and loud. And wouldn't you know, the people loved it. Take a look at the video below for a taste of Problem Stick's set. Sorry the sound is a little fuzzy...we were standing next to the speakers, which probably wasn't the best idea. But hey, we like it loud...because we're rapidly losing our hearing due to all this rock and roll music we've been taking in. It's hard to believe ol' grandpa's prediction came true: rock and roll music can make you go deaf...but enough about that, check out the video.
