The hometown three-piece band returns with their unique rock/soul sound. Always fueled by improvisation and easy vibes, The Diggs blends genres as easily as breathing, whether they are lounging around in the '50s or dropping some dance-hall reggae. Doing a show at Sunny Yoga only means that you will get to eat delicious food while enjoying their tasty sounds. 5:30 pm. Friday, Nov. 6. Sunny Yoga Kitchen, 2748 NW Crossing Dr., Suite 120. No cover.
The Dead Woods
The Chicago-based rock trio heads through Bend on their Northwest tour. After releasing their debut LP Seventy Cedar in January 2014, they sold out the House of Blues Chicago, opened for Crosses, and headed out on their first U.S. tour. The media has compared them to Led Zeppelin, but their sound is more similar to a classic lost '70s fuzz-rock band whose old recordings were found moldering in Willy Wonka's basement. These fellas are going to be massive, sooner rather than later. 9 pm. Wednesday, Nov. 11. Astro Lounge, 939 NW Bond St.
Shafty—A Phish Tribute
Tribute bands are a fickle beast. The love for the source music has to be present or else everything can come across as kitschy or phony. Shafty walks that line perfectly because they're just out to have fun jamming out and playing Phish tunes. No pretension, no BS, just noodling around on the guitar for 20 minutes at a stretch until all the different roads of a song have been taken. If you like Phish and you like cover bands, then this Phish cover band is just the thing for that improvisational hole in your heart. 9 pm. Friday, Nov. 6. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $8-$10.
