This Weekend: First Friday, Blazers, Roller Dolls, Matt Hopper and more

Here are the things you should be doing in Bend this weekend.

You'd think that there would be a post-New Year lull in the events happening around town this weekend, but that's hardly the case. There's actually a crap ton of stuff to do. So maybe you should get out there and do it.

For starters, tonight is the first First Friday of 2012 and there's plenty of cool exhibits for you to check out. Here's a comprehensive list of the gallery showings going on around the city, but I recommend you do it old school and just wander around downtown and the Old Mill District, popping in and out of shops until you see something you like.

And did you know that we have professional basketball in this state and that our team is really quite good this year? Yes, the Blazers have been through a shitstorm of injuries over the past couple of years, but as last night's dismantling of the Lakers proved, the Blazers are looking great. They play the Phoenix Suns tonight and then take on the Cleveland Cavs on Sunday night. Tonight's game is on ESPN at 7:30...in case you want to pop into a bar during the art walk and check it out.

Tomorrow, after you hit up the outdoor recreational activities winter has brought our way, make your way to the Cascade Indoor Sports Center where the Lava City Roller Dolls are going to kick the living crap out of each other...not really, but it's going to be feisty. Here are all the details on that all-ages bout between the Moulin Rouge and the Guage Rage.

If music is your think, you might ponder the notion of heading to the Silver Moon where the excellent sounds of Boise-based psych rocker Matt Hopper (with his band The Roman Candles) will be providing an excellent night of beer-fueled music. Here's some footage of the band in action.
