Open Your Ears 

It's time to open your ears and shut your mouth.

What is with all the complaining about the sound quality at the free shows around town?

I am an astute concertgoer who has noticed some of the uneven sound. I attribute it to the diverse styles of music these guys must mix every day. To them I say, "Thanks." It's a very difficult job to make every band sound great. The folks who don't like the sound quality should ask for a refund. Oh yeah the music is free - so stop whining!

Speaking of free music, I'd like to give a shout out to Scott Foxx and Bobby Lindstrom, whose band nailed it at Munch and Music [Thursday]. Eric Tollefson's set at Sagebrush Tuesday was a thing of beauty. Thanks, Guys.

Congratulations to Necktie Killer for their well earned win at Last Band [Standing]. They butched up their set and went toe-to-toe with our heaviest bands. Their sound was more articulate than the others and was bolstered by the best rhythm section in the competition.

So when you go to the free shows, I urge you to listen to the music and artists, not the sound system. We have a lively music scene here with diverse acts and great settings. If you don't like the sound quality, leave. Or if you can do it better, then shut up and get to it.

- Listener Mike, Bend

    We recently visited Bend for the Film Festival and very much enjoyed ourselves, with one small exception. We parked our Ford in the public parking structure, only to find when we returned on Friday night that it had been spat upon, apparently in retribution for our Obama 2012 bumper sticker. I understand that whoever did this was passionate about politics, something I have always shared.

    After living in Bend for a year and a half, I recently stopped through on business. I love the town, the people, and all the outdoor beauty the area offers. One of my favorite things about Bend is without question, The Source. From the first time I read it, I knew it would be a cover-to-cover great time for me to enjoy all the stories, community news, the updates on all the music and arts, presentations, and great things goings on around town.
