Clarien Stone & Jason Plankey
Here we have sultry female vocals accompanied by an electric guitar in a space filled with some of the finest whiskey known to man. If there were a way to get your feet rubbed at the same time while Morgan Freeman tells you everything is going to be all right, then it would be a completely perfect night. 7pm. Thursday, Jan. 21. Stihl Whiskey Bar, 550 NW Franklin. No cover.
Bend knows how to do it and do it right this week. A kick-ass roots-rock band in one of the finest breweries in the entire Pacific Northwest...and it's free. Downhill Ryder doesn't play every weekend, sometimes they only play once a month, so when they do, it is wise to be there and bask in the rock. 5:30pm. Friday, Jan. 22. Crux Fermentation Project, 50 SW Division St. No cover.
