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.

Show Preview: Marco Benevento Brings Pop to New Heights, 4/11

Posted By on Wed, Mar 1, 2017 at 12:01 PM

For nearly 20 years, Marco Benevento has been a key figure in the shaping of the New York music scene. His diligence has let him amass an arsenal of fantastic music that can only come from self-made artists.

Last year, Benevento released the concept album "The Story of Fred Short" under his own label. His work was chosen to be featured in the Woodstock Sessions, a series of live recordings by standout artists. In front of a sold-out crowd, Benevento performed and recorded the entire Fred Short suite in one take. Recently, he has also been performing various Bowie covers.

Stylistically, Marco’s music is eclectic and distinct. His tracks don’t clearly fit into the confines of any established genre, but he clearly takes inspiration from psychedelic, rock, and pop tunes. He has a tendency to electronically alter the raw sounds of his instruments, resulting in a sound that is hard to believe comes from a three-man band. The Story of Fred Short is easy to listen to without feeling ordinary, a combo that makes for some great live performances.

You can listen to one of his 2016 tracks, “In The Afternoon Tomorrow" here.

Marco and company will be at The Capitol on Tuesday, April 11. The show will consist of tracks from the recent Woodstock album and several other of Benevento’s best songs. He will be accompanied by Andy Borger on drums and Karina Rykman on bass. Borger has worked alongside Benevento since 2012.

Benevento’s reputation as a top-notch live performer makes this one of spring’s most exciting shows.
