Our Picks 5/28-6/5 

Thursday 29

Black Flag

ROCK—In 2013, Black Flag reformed in two incarnations, released an album, found itself at the middle of a lawsuit and fired its lead. But that's all in the past. The new year brings a new tour for Greg Ginn's version of the seminal punk group with new singer and former professional skateboarder Mike Vallely. 8 pm. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $25.

Friday 30

Drive-in Movie

DRIVE-IN MOVIE—Oddly, for this throwback to the '50s, the organizers chose to show the more recent version of Footloose, the fable of a wild boy moving to an uptight religious town that just needs a little dancing to loosen it up. To be honest, the 2011 remake is a better film—and what better way to watch than from the backseat of your car. 9 pm. Deschutes County Fair & Expo, Redmond. $5.

Friday 30


BREWS & BABES—Colorado-based emcee Naughty Pierre hosts an evening of pasties and pairings as part of a 12-city tour as Deschutes Brewery's spokesperson. Enjoy a slow reveal on the stage and in your glass, with craft brew samples accompanied by the sultry beer-inspired moves of burlesque dancers. Oh, and there'll be some comedy and variety acts too. 7 pm. Old Stone Church, 157 NW Franklin Ave. $5.

Saturday 31

Second Son and Sam Cooper & Co.

COUNTRY & FOLK—Second Son played in front of its largest audience ever at TedxBend in April, but its versatile country music plays equally well at an intimate indoor venue like Volcanic or a sprawling outdoor summer stage. Portland's Sam Cooper & Co. bring the bouncy harmonious folk. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. 9 pm. $5.

Saturday 31


REC TIME—As much a spectator sport as a participatory game, dodgeball is a throwback (get it? Throw...) to elementary school. A double-elimination tournament, with no holds barred, and trash talking so much more welcome than it was during second grade. Co-ed teams (must start each game with at least two members of each gender). Tube socks optional. 9 am. Sisters High School, 1700 McKinney Butte Rd. $249/team.

Saturday 31


OPERA—Because opera can be so, well, epic, this performance is a gracious and approachable sampler of familiar "bitter and sweet" songs (oh, you know, that Mozart guy, and Verdi "a Traviata"). With singers ranging from baritones to sopranos, and songs spanning from heartbroken to lustful, its sure to be an impressive showing by young artists from around the region. 7 pm. Pinckney Center for the Arts, COCC, 2600 NW College Way. $7.

Saturday 31

Last Saturday

ART—The Old Ironworks opens its doors once again for its monthly open studios showcasing local artists and musicians. This month Cindercone Clay Center, Bend's first and oldest co-operative clay center, celebrates 12 years with a performance by Portland indie rockers The Weather Machine. As per usual, best to come thirsty—for beer and art. 6 pm. Old Ironworks Art District, 50 Scott St. Free.

Wednesday 4

Tango Alpha Tango

ROCK—Portland's Tango Alpha Tango is a three-piece updated blues act that has been called one of Portland's best bands (by Source music writer Ethan Maffey, but hey, we trust his taste). Mixing hot gravel-roughed vocals and scathing guitar riffs, the band members are adept face-melters. 9 pm. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $5.

Wednesday 4

See More Seymour (Mission Impossible III)

FILM—Philip Seymour Hoffman embodies bone-chilling villain Owen Davian in Tom Cruise's third entry in the Mission Impossible film series. Cruise's character Ethan Hunt, retired from the Impossible Mission Force, is brought back into the field after Davian threatens to kill his girlfriend Julia (Michelle Monaghan). Davian is a perfect cocktail of Seymour as both sinister and badass. 7 pm. Old Stone Church, 157 NW Franklin. Free.

Thursday 5

HUMP! Tour

FRISKY FLICKS—The infamous Hump! Erotic Film Festival is hitting the road to bring its DIY smut to underserved regions. Hopeless Jack and the Handsome Devil provide the foreplay for 15 of the sexiest amateur flicks representing a broad range of perversities and proclivities. Whether they titillate, amuse, or inspire, you're sure to walk away with a richer sexual vocabulary. 7 pm. Volcanic Theatre, 70 SW Century Dr. $15.
