Parlour "Days of Plenty"

Parlour is a group in Bend that umbrellas four members known around town for their classic take on folk music, participation in the local scene and their tendency to drink and be merry. Having just released its first album, this folk band graces the stages of many local venues with no sign of slowing down.

"Heart Like a Wheel"

Honey Don't
Honey Don't is a local band to see at the 4 Peaks Music Festival on June 16, bringing all that Americana music has to offer: bluegrass, folk, old timey, country, blues, swing and even bits of jazz. It is a genre limited only by the artist's interpretations and this group shows no restraint.

"A Moon Shaped Pool"

Radiohead's 2016 release, "A Moon Shaped Pool," might be its best album since "Kid A," but without a half-dozen listens under the belt, it's hard to judge. The group's albums are not what they first appear, and never just a collection of new songs.

Evie Ladin Band "Jump the Fire"

Released May 6
Evie Ladin opens for the Stray Birds on May 24 at the Old Stone Performing Arts Center (previously the Old Stone Church). The Stray Birds is an acoustic trio on a coast-to-coast tour, stopping by Bend between gigs in Ashland and Eugene.

"Ghosts of Champoeg"

The Hill Dogs Re-release

Broken Down Guitars

Smooth Beast

Whenever good hip-hop music passes by, it is hard not to compare it to Bend's own Person People. With members including Mike Fish, KP, MOsley WOtta, Mez, Sorski and Adam Bomb, they were one of the most explosive hip-hop collaborations far and wide.
