With all of the smoke throughout Central Oregon, many events have been canceled, including the Sisters Folk Festival. Tonight's Michael Franti and Spearhead concert will continue as planned, barring any drastic changes in air quality.

For the past several summers, Michael Franti has partnered with Bend-based organization World Muse for a yoga jam and bike ride through the Old Mill District. I spoke with Franti about his involvement with World Muse in our recent interview, which debuted in the paper this week.
"As a traveling musician, normally we're going from sound check to sound check, to show to show to show," Franti says. "It's really great to have that pause in our tour schedule to really be doing something that's fun and celebrating that sense of community."

This afternoon ahead of his annual performance at the Les Schwab Amphitheater, Franti joins World Music once again for the Muse + Soulrocker Yoga Jam. Here are the details:

Get your soul rockin! Join us for a very special community yoga class led by Heather Gray TenBroek to kick-off Michael Franti & Spearhead Live in Bend this Friday at Riverbend Park (look for Muse sign and yoga mats).

Special guests: Michael Franti & Spearhead

4:30 Gather
5:00 Yoga
5:45 CYOJ (choose your own jam): Bike, picnic, volleyball, head to show

Yoga with Franti? Sounds like the perfect kickoff to a night of soul rockin' to us!

Muse + Soulrocker Yoga Jam
Friday, Sept. 8. 4:30pm.
Riverbend Park
799 SW Columbia St., Bend.
No cover. Tickets required for concert ($43 +Service Fees)

OSCAR 2016 Predictions

Posted By on Sun, Feb 28, 2016 at 12:11 PM

Well, it's not Oscar night unless we make some Oscar predictions, so here are a few of mine before the big night happens. These aren't necessarily all the things I want to win, as much as they are the things that will probably win, but I've never been that great predicting the Oscars anyway. 

BEST PICTURE: "Spotlight"

BEST ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE: Leonardo DiCaprio- "The Revenant"


ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE: Sylvester Stallone- "Creed"

ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE: Alicia Vikander- "The Danish Girl"


CINEMATOGRAPHY: Emmanuel Lubezki- "The Revenant"

COSTUME DESIGN: Jenny Beavan- "Mad Max- Fury Road"

DIRECTING: George Miller- "Mad Max-Fury Road"  (It will probably be Innaritu for "Revenant, but I'm pulling for Miller.

DOCUMENTARY: "Amy" (although it should be "Cartel Land" or "The Look of Silence")


EDITING: Margaret Sixel- "Mad Max- Fury Road"

FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM: "Son of Saul" (but "Mustang" might sweep in)


ORIGINAL SCORE: Ennio Morricone- "The Hateful Eight"

ORIGINAL SONG: "Earned It"- "Fifty Shades of Grey"




SOUND EDITING: "Mad Max-Fury Road"

SOUND MIXING: "Mad Max-Fury Road"

VISUAL EFFECTS: "Mad Max- Fury Road"


WRITING (ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY): "Spotlight" (although it should be "Ex Machina")

Well, there are my predictions. Most will be wrong, since I'm terrible at this, but since I get paid to write about movies I felt an obligation to be a better film writer. Let me know your choices in the comments.

TONIGHT! The Source's Media Salon on "Smart Growth"

Posted By on Mon, Jul 8, 2013 at 2:47 PM

Last month’s Media Salon on bikes was packed—it nearly took a crow bar to remove guests afterwards who wanted to stay and discuss. Tonight, the Source presents its third Media Salon, an informal but engaging and informative Oprah-styled Q&A. Hosted by Editor Phil Busse, this month addresses “smart growth.” With the economy returning, Bend again needs to consider how it will grow over the next five years.


Guests include, oh yeah!, the MAYOR, Jim Clinton; Community Development Director Mel Oberst; and Marcia Hilber with Allison James Estates and Homes to provide thoughts and insights about what the return of the housing market can mean to Bend’s future.

Join us for a few beers and a lot of enlightening discussion.

Broken Top Bottle Shop
1740 NW Pence Lane
Monday 8, 7 pm

Blood, Bunkers and Beauty: Cool Talk Tonight by Outside Correspondent

Posted By on Wed, Mar 13, 2013 at 9:34 AM


Totally lucky Bendite Tim Neville, who routinely goes on assignment and reports back to the New York Times, Outside and other excellent publications, will give a presentation tonight at The Environmental Center about his recent trek into the alps of Albania, Montenegro and Kosovo.

These beautiful mountains and valleys there were the the backdrop to horrific acts during fighting there twenty years ago. The area has been captivating for Neville who, in typical fashion, will provide insight into this place with humor and tact.

We are totally going. You should, too.

Red Wanting Blue TONIGHT

Posted By on Wed, Jan 23, 2013 at 4:30 PM

If you love '90s college radio and men in cardigans with beards, you are going to loose it for Red Wanting Blue.


Formed in Athens, OH in 1996, front-man Scott Terry is the underground Hootie (of Blowfish fame). Unsigned until 2010, RWB are the true definition of independent artists. RWB has experienced moderate success in their two-decade career, but never quite hit it big with any of their five studio albums, despite all of the albums kicking serious folk-pop ass.
