Something To Sleep On:
Jo Lundberg Art Show
Local artist Jo Lundberg displays all her zany new work, including large-scale oil paintings at this art show, which also features one of Bend's most intriguing new bands, Yenn.

Poethouse Art, 55 NW Minnesota Ave.

We thought that the January show from Hawaiian folk Grammy winner John Cruz was a treat that we'd never get to taste again, like Crystal Pepsi, but it turns out Cruz is more like the McRib, which comes back just in time to quench our desire.
