Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Doubling Down: Back to Back CD Release Parties at McMenamins

Two local favorite bands are having back to back CD release parties this week at McMenamins.

Posted By on Tue, Jul 10, 2012 at 8:00 AM

Hilst & Coffey
The Lonely Garage Sessions
July 11 7pm @ McMenamins
String duo Hilst & Coffey return with the release of The Lonely Garage Sessions. The irony in the title is that the new album feels like an old friend and who could ever be lonely with a friend around? (The album's name is actually the result of being recorded at Lonely Garage Studios)
The Lonely Garage Sessions opens with the instrumental song "The Blue in the Grey" and on it, Hilst's cello creates beautiful wordless vocals for the song. From there Garage Sessions bounces around from gritty folk on "Freerider" to whimsical storytelling on "Toys". Their CD release party should be a robust evening of meaningful folk music perfectly set in the rustic Father Luke's room.
The Mostest
Zara Dreams
July 12 @McMenamins
Mark Ransom is back with Bend collective the Mostest and is set to release the new album Zara Dreams this Thursday.
Zara Dreams is an album full of delightful folk music and hints of The Grateful Dead. Ransom's penchant for smiling from ear to ear during performances is communicated through the hopeful songs on Dreams and the all-star cast of local heavyweights Lindsey Elias on drums, Patrick Pearsall on bass guitar and Shireen Amini adding percussion and vocals backs each song with noticeably strong musicianship.
