The Source Weekly has been Central Oregon’s locally owned news outlet for over 23 years. We have always been the definition of "support local." Our success in navigating this new world is tied to the success we experience in pulling together for the common good.

Quality local journalism takes a group of dedicated reporters passionate about democracy and open government.

The countdown continues... And so does the winning!

Share this post from our FACEBOOK page and be entered to win album #128 on our list, Queens Of The Stone Age's latest release ... Like Clockwork!

In this installment, we have the second entry from a Bend band. Local thrash-grass group Grit and Grizzle stormed onto the local scene this year, tearing up the BENT Lounge stage at Winterfest in February and then conquering the rest of the town from there. (see video)

Also included are Minnesota-to-Portland transplants, The Lower 48.

This band of retro-pop artists combine hazy harmonies with 70's rock sensibilities and turned in a smartly crafted album in 2013 that almost cracked the top 100.
