Break out the chicory, it's time for some morning reading.

More Clinton-era documents have been released. And given the potential for Hillary Clinton to run for president in 2016, people are paying attention. This PIECE, which has been floating around details an alleged right-wing media conspiracy. So, now we can't trust conservative or liberal media. Great. (via Politico Magazine)

Well, good morning. You know it's the last day to register to vote before the May 20 primary, right? Now you do.

So, in addition to eagerly anticipating our endorsements, which are going to hit the street on Thursday, take a look at some information from the Oregon State Bar. The race for Deschutes Circuit Court Judge is an interesting one and features two qualified candidates. We know, we met with both Randy Miller and Thomas "TJ" Spear last week. And we enjoyed speaking with both of them.

Better Living Through Music: Gold Casio "Colors On the Wall"

Posted By on Mon, Apr 28, 2014 at 3:28 PM

Portland via Bend act Adventure Galley released their most recent EP Anywhere That's Wild last November. But members have had plenty of other projects in the works. Brothers Brock and Forrest Grenfell and fellow bandmate George Shultz are taking keyboard obsessed disco pop to a whole new level with side project Gold Casio. A baseline that sounds stripped straight from a Blur song and psychedelic tumbling keyboard riffs make Gold Casio's first track a danceable club anthem.

Read more about the release in an interview with the band in Impose Magazine.

If you haven't already read Bri Brey's bit on the re-emergence of Armature, a local gallery and event space at 50 N.E. Scott St., you probably should. Regardless, though, there's more than just art to catch at the space's reopening at 6:30 pm. Saturday. There're bands, too.

Friday Mixtape!

Posted By on Fri, Apr 25, 2014 at 1:16 PM

friday_mixtape.jpg

With music festival offerings exploding across the country, live music is bigger than ever. In Bend, even small non-venues like supply depots are getting in the game by hosting concerts.

With summer largely considered to be the apex of the live music season, this Friday Mixtape aims to get listeners in the mood for shows by providing 20 hand-picked quality live recordings from classic artists—like Johnny Cash— and today’s pop sensations like Lorde.

Performances range from intimate, in-studio sets by melancholy folk band Daughter to iconic rock concerts by Bruce Springsteen and everything in between. Even a track from Nirvana’s lauded MTV Unplugged appearance made it into the playlist. Imagine being in the audience for that show!

Wine Growlers! Legal Again.

Posted By on Fri, Apr 25, 2014 at 12:34 PM

Portland, OR — Oregon Senator Ron Wyden today announced that the federal agency that regulates the sale of alcohol has agreed to rescind an order than would have blocked the sale of wine growlers in Oregon.

In a letter to members of the Oregon delegation the administrator of the federal Alcohol, Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau’s administrator wrote that he is immediately rescinding its ruling with respect to wine sold in growlers.

“This is news that deserves a toast — Wine growlers are once again legal in the State of Oregon,” Wyden said. “I want to thank the Alcohol, Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau for managing to break through the bureaucratic morass and finding a common sense solution.”

Last month, the Federal Alcohol, Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, which is charged with regulating and taxing alcohol producers, announced that it would require that retailers selling wine in refillable containers known as growlers be subject to the same burdensome recordkeeping, labeling and registration requirements as large wine bottling operations.

The regulation was in conflict with the intent of the Oregon Legislature, which last spring unanimously voted to allow Oregon retailers to sell wine growlers. In response, Wyden and other members of the delegation asked that ruling be rescinded.

“I saw this issue as an example of a federal agency that is out of touch with the times,” Wyden said. “In the letter to me and other members of the Oregon delegation today, the bureau acknowledged as much by saying that it needed to modernize its regulations regarding the sale of wine growlers.”

While TTB has withdrawn the current ruling, the Bureau has left the door open to develop future regulation to accommodate retail sale of wine growlers, only after soliciting public comment from consumers and the industry.

The Oregon wine industry generates $3 billion a year in economic activity and provides more than 13,000 jobs. Wyden was joined at the news conference by owners of Oregon wineries and representatives of the Oregon Winegrowers Association.
