Weekend Roundup! | 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.

Happy Friday! It's a big weekend in Central Oregon...the PPP is tomorrow and we are riding the high of one of the first really great weather weeks of the season. So, what to do if you're not Pole-ing, Peddling, or Paddling (or after you're done)? There's lots of live music happening! Here's a few of our top choices:

Zonked Out Vibe Night- An epic lineup of local electronic spinners—Jay Tablet, Rory Oneders, DJ Harlo, Matt Wax and Royal Louis, Bend’s anti-Euro club jammers—present what they call “dark” party music. Intriguing and totally danceable. Ladies, no cover. Guys, $3. Friday. 5/16, 9pm. Dojo.


Hot Buttered Rum- Adopting the music sensibilities of Appalachia and applying a Northern California lyrical take on bluegrass has ingratiated this sextet to the granola set, while retaining enough grit and instrumental finesse to pull in old timers, too. Even in a venue the size of the Belfry, there’ll surely be some two-stepping going on. $18 advance/$22 at the door. Saturday, 5/17. 8p. The Belfry (Sisters).

The Chop Tops with Hopeless Jack and the Handsome Devil (Swoon!)-Pompadours, please. This Santa Cruz, Calif., band voices it’s love for all things hot-rod related, while dishing out a soldered together batch of punk, country and surf. Hearing that slapped bass and watching this trio speed through its work might result in some desire to drag race. But just resist and dig the music. $8 adv, $10 door. Saturday, 5/17, 8pm. Volcanic Theatre Pub

If none of these appeal to you, here's that video of the cat saving the kid from the dog again. Have a great weekend, Bend!
