100% Local. No Paywalls.

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.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

A Frog, a Fox, Fruition and a Musical Cocktail.

Posted By on Thu, Oct 18, 2012 at 6:16 PM

It's Thursday night, time to start the weekend. Here are some staff picks for your perusal.

The Northwest Best concert series continues tonight with Portland’s own string band Fruition and the Dead Carpenters. Fruition has been playing inspired up-beat folk-Americana since 2008 packing dance floors and music halls up and down the coast.

The Dead Carpenters are a high energy roots-rock band from Tahoe City touring in support of their album Ain’t It Strange. Listen to Holy Moses, straight-up Americana gold and then head to the show.

Viper jazz, ragtime and country blues are the preferred flavors of the band Woody Pines. Dancing isn’t mandatory but it is strongly encouraged. The free show starts at 7pm at Mcmenamins.

Alt-indie, experimental band Fox & Woman play the Horned Hand. This bi-lingual band from San Francisco plays everything from Portuguese folk songs to Bowie covers encompassing a wide range of genres executed with both style and enthusiasm. Show starts at 8pm.

The Mark Sexton Band mixes soul, funk, rock and reggae into a smooth musical cocktail that’s easy to drink and leaves you thirsty for more. $5. Show starts at 9pm.

Kermet Apio, winner of the Seattle Comedy Competition and Great American Comedy Festival will be performing at Kayo’s tonight. $10 bucks gets you a beer and a front row seat to one of the Northwest’s best comics.
