New Music Tuesday | Bent

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
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.

New Music Tuesday

Posted By on Tue, Dec 11, 2012 at 8:00 AM

2012 is almost over which means that for the next month, you can expect every media outlet to be overwhelmed with recaps and top 10 lists (speaking of, look out for the Source's top 10 issue on 24th of this month).

NPR just released it's top 10 Artists you Should Have Known in 2012 which first, made me feel like a complete failure, until I realized that:

1) Radiation City is on the list.

...and 2) The last entry is Shaky Graves.

Shaky Graves at Sam Bonds in Eugene

Radiation City is one of Portland's best known young acts. They've even crossed the Cascades, playing Bend's Fall Festival in October. The band is made up of two couples and a drummer who make dreamy harmonic indie-rock and look just oh so Portland. Here is a video of them preforming their song "Babies" at the Doug Fir in Portland.

Austin's Alejandro Rose-Garcia a.k.a Shaky Graves, played a gig at Sam Bond's Garage in Eugene just a few short months ago. I happened to be there. Included are a few shaky photos of the gig.

His one man act was amazing, utilizing a well-traveled suitcase drum kit as percussion.
Below is a video of Mr. Graves singing "Roll the Bones"

Now all that's left to do is google the rest of these acts and rock out for the rest of the day.
Thanks, NPR!
