Takin' it to the Tower.
We've hinted of this for a while, but now can finally confirm that 2009 will indeed yield a new disc from local acoustic powerhouse Moon Mountain Ramblers. The album, entitled Let it All Be Good, is slated for a January release and the band has been booked at the Tower Theatre on January 24 for a CD release party. It should be a night of high-octane bluegrass and Americana from what you, dear Source readers, voted the best band of 2008. Also, this is a band with a deft grasp on their instruments - something that's slightly lost when the band plays in smaller venues, with smaller PAs. But with the Tower's mega sound system, this show should have Moon Mountain sounding their absolute finest.

Jill Sobule: The Obama of Recording?

Gimme some monaaaay.
  • Gimme some monaaaay.
Gimme some monaaaay.
The Blender doesn't typically dive too deep into national music news, but this little tidbit hit my inbox this morning and I couldn't resist sharing it.

This past year, Barack Obama's presidential campaign rewrote the books on campaign fundraising, relying on a whole F'in S load of small contributions from a whole F'in S load of people to ultimately raise the most cash of any presidential candidate in history. Folk/pop/rocker Jill Sobule (most of you probably know her 1995 hit "I Kissed a Girl") took this take-it-to-the-streets attitude to the recording of her soon-to-be-released album California Years.

Sobule started a website (www.jillsnextrecord.com) where fans - of which she has many - could donate any amount to fund the album. With these donations came some perks, of course. Ten bucks gets you a digital download of the album upon its release, $20 gets you an advanced copy of the record and for $50, you'll get both of the previous offers, plus your name in the "Thank You" portion of the liner notes. For the big spenders: $1,000 gets you your own "theme song" to put on your answering machine performed by Sobule. $5,000 will grant you a house concert and for $10,000 you get to sing on the actual CD.

To date, Jill has raised some $85,000 for her album, more than enough to lay it down on wax. Could this change the way artists record albums? Probably not...but you gotta love the whole for-the-people-by-the-people notion of this whole thing.

Braille, who is featured in this week's issue of the Source, sent over a mix compiled by friend and Lightheaded co-member Ohmega Watts. If you're a hip-hop fan trying to get into the holiday spirit, take a listen to this compilation. Not every track is specifically holiday-oriented, but it should do the trick for all the bah-humbugging B Boys out there.

Give it a listen right here!

WEEKEND WARRIOR 12/5-12/6

Posted By on Fri, Dec 5, 2008 at 11:29 AM

Friday Night 12/5

Marv Ellis, Acoustic Minds at the Downtown Bendistillery Martini Bar

Ellis dishes out super jazzy and world-inspired hip-hop numbers accompanied by his innovative lyrical style. The Portland MC has played shows across the country, as well as in Europe, and this experience is evidenced in his live show, which tonight features Brooks B. on trumpet. Bring your dancing shoes and don't spill your martini. 10pm. Downtown Bendistillery Martini Bar, 850 NW Brooks St.

Saturday 12/6

Bend Holiday Parade

If you're the festive type, head downtown Saturday morning to see all sorts of parade elements, including a float from the Source Weekly. Come wave at us...or at least those of us that got stuck with float duty. Downtown Bend, parade begins at noon.

Rise Up Benefit at the Poethouse

If you weren't aware, the globally active social organization Rise Up has an office in Bend and creates super cool clothing, the proceeds from which benefit people around the world. This show is to raise some cash for the organization and features music from Empty Space Orchestra, Mosley Wotta (with DJ Mud, of course) as well as some youthful groups. 8pm, Poethouse Art, 55 NW Minnesota Ave.

Blackflowersblacksun, The Dirty Words at Silver Moon Brewing Co.

This quirkily named local band is the brainchild of slide blues guitarist Greg Bryce. He's got a drummer with him and before you start comparing the duo to Hillstomp, the Portland blues duo that tore up the Domino Room last weekend, we'll stop you right there. Blackflowersblacksun is a little cleaner sounding and uses less duct tape. The Dirty Words, known for their hard-rocking stage presence as of late, are going acoustic for their opening set - but you can bet they'll still tear it up. 8pm, Silver Moon Brewing Co. 24 NW Greenwood Ave.

As promised, here's some video of Hillstomp at the Domino Room on Saturday night. Sorry for the shaky camera work, but all of the dancing hooligans you'll see on in the video kept bumping into me. And that's OK - I don't mind hooligans.

On Saturday night, Empty Space Orchestra pretty much destroyed the Domino Room stage (not literally) with a freakishly tight set before Portland' Hillstomp further decimated said stage with their own killer set. Here's video of Empty Space at its best. Check back tomorrow for a sampling of what Hillstomp brought to the show.
