Out of Town 5/18 - 5/26: Eisley, Shawn Mullins, Lauryn Hill, Sheryl Crow 

Heading to Eugene or Portland? Here are a few bands worth checking out if you're Out of Town.


friday 20


After listening to Eisley's new album, The Valley, from front to back, the Texas-based band, comprised of four DuPree siblings and one of their cousins, plays melodic indie rock that is both heartfelt and soulful. Their songs feature the beautiful vocal melodies of sisters Stacy and Sherri and their new single, "Smarter," has an addictive beat, smart lyrics and soulful vocals. 9pm, Wonder Ballroom.

saturday 21 & monday 23

Shawn Mullins

It's been said Shawn Mullins hasn't been able to live up to his hit single "Lullaby," but those people likely haven't heard his newer material on 2010's Light You Up. The album's title single has a smooth and infectiously melodic sound and may be one of the best of Mullins' career. 8pm, Aladdin Theater.


friday 20

Lauryn Hill

If there's any artist you should splurge some dough to see it's definitely Lauryn Hill. After winning five Grammies for The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, the former Fugee disappeared from the public eye and hasn't released an album since. Instead, she's been raising her five children with Rohan Marley (the fourth son of Bob). Now, 12 years after her amazing, soulful hip-hop album debuted, she's ready to share more of her beautiful voice and insightful lyrics with the world. Finally! 7pm, Cuthbert Amphitheater.

friday 20

Sheryl Crow

It seems in the last few years most news about Sheryl Crow involved her personal life, whether it was about her adopting two boys or surviving breast cancer. But she's still making music, and though it's nearly as infectious as earlier hits like "Soak Up the Sun," "All I Wanna Do" or "Everyday is a Winding Road," she's still a talented musician. And if her new stuff isn't for you, we're sure she'll be cranking out some of her biggest hits from the '90s, or so we can hope. 7pm, Hult Center.

    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.
