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.

Posted By on Fri, Jan 23, 2015 at 3:11 PM

It's Friday again! Instead of something terrible like THIS this weekend, try one of try one of these fun things instead! 

friday 23
Doc Ryan & Wyches Creek

MUSIC—Distant trains and harmonica notes. Blues with a slight drawl in the lyrics. Rockers in cowboy hats. Local favorites Doc Ryan & Wyches Creek drive forward their songs with stripped down blues guitar chords, hand clapping and good nature. 8 pm. Volcanic Theater, 70 SW Century. $5.

Know Art: Natalie Fletcher

BODY ART—Last fall, local alternative artist Natalie Fletcher competed and won the first ever body painting reality televisions show, “Skin Wars.” With her affinity for camouflage painting, making models disappear into their surroundings with careful detail and color matching, Fletcher’s creativity is what won her the television title. See her body of work. 2 pm. Deschutes Public Library, 601 NW Wall St. Free.

saturday 24
Cherry Poppin' Daddies

MUSIC—After a last minute cancellation by Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, (he is busy recording an album with the legendary Neil Young), Bend Surgery Center Foundation found a pretty excellent replacement for its annual student scholarship fundraiser. The Cherry Poppin' Daddies are a mix of swing, ska and big band best known for the 1997 pop hit "Zoot Suit Riot." 6:30 pm. Tower Theatre, 835 NW Wall St. $39-$49.

sunday 25
The Glass Menagerie

THEATER—Tennessee Williams’ southern-gothic styling pours on the humanity of responsibility and desperation to be independent through the lens of Tom Wingfield. If you don’t remember reading this one in school, it’s a doozy. A classic play about dramatically shifting economic circumstances, growing up, and a bookshelf full of tiny glass animals. BONUS: The fella playing Tom in this rendition of the play is very attractive. 2 pm. Cascade Theatrical Company, 148 Northwest Greenwood Ave. $20.
