WEEKEND WARRIOR 2/20-2/22

Posted By on Fri, Feb 20, 2009 at 4:41 PM

The weekend warrior is back and here again on Friday afternoon to give some helpful pointers for the weekend. Without further adieu:

FRIDAY NIGHT - 2/20

Cicada Omega, Larry and His Flask at the Silver Moon Brewing Co. - 8pm doors, 9:30pm show
Check out this week's feature on Cicada Omega, a Portland-based band (via Kentucky) that uses a messy assembly of instruments to dish out Southern-flavored hellfire...and some blues, soul and ol' fashioned rock.

SATURDAY NIGHT - 2/21

Renegade Roller Girls Heartbreakers Ball at the Midtown Music Hall - 8pm
Rollerskates and some hate mix together as the girls take on each other in this super incredible night of roller derby.

SUNDAY NIGHT - 2/22

Kool Keith: Dr. Dooom vs. Dr. Octagon at the Domino Room - 8pm.
One of hip-hop's weirdest weirdos hits the stage for a night of legendary rhymes and plenty of nonsensical fun for all. Enjoy his delightful alter egos while you're at it.

There were memorable moments by the handful at last weekend's WinterFest and one of those was Dirty Dozen Brass Band kicking out a steaming version of Stevie Wonder's "Superstition" as snowboarders cut through the crisp winter night air behind the crowd. Take a look for yourself:

Last night the Silver Moon was packed with awestruck folks dancing along to the sounds of That 1 Guy and his magic pipe. There were also a good number of people simply staring at the dude's homemade instrument. In case you missed it, here are some videos of what you may have missed.

That 1 Guy does Magic!

When instruments ignite!

WinterFest is kicking off tomorrow, and we thought we'd give you a preview of the massive Rail Jam apparatus that has been erected across from the Les Schwab Amphitheater. Check out the video below for a look at the progress that has been made so far. The structure should be done soon and ready to go when things go live tomorrow.

Also, check out a video of last year's WinterFest by Source calendar editor Anne Pick:

4 Peaks Fest on Tour

The Blender raved a bit about music festivals earlier this week, but we didn't touch on the state of our own outdoor music and camping

Posted By on Fri, Feb 6, 2009 at 4:42 PM

The Blender raved a bit about music festivals earlier this week, but we didn't touch on the state of our own outdoor music and camping fest: the 4 Peaks Music Festival. Word just came through today that 4 Peaks is planning a mini Oregon tour with two of the festival's stalwarts, Poor Man's Whiskey and Blue Turtle Seduction.

The 4 Peaks Spring Fling Tour, as the three-day jaunt has been billed, begins at the Doug Fir Lounge on March 19, then heads south to Eugene's WOW Hall on the 20th, before wrapping up in Bend at the Old Stone Church on the 21st.

While mention of the tour will definitely conjure images of the two sunny days out in Tumalo in the minds of past attendees, the purpose of the Spring Fling doesn't cast as bright of a light on the future of the festival. Festival organizers are hoping the tour will raise awareness and support for 4 Peaks, which they say, like many of us, is "struggling in the current economy." The festival, which saw its attendance double between 2007 and 2008, is also still looking for a new site and is open to any suggestions from Central Oregonians who might have a space of land for the event.

The Blender is pumped to see these 4 Peaks bands come up our way and even more pumped at the prospect that the festival is bravely battling to survive in a time when festivals seem to be falling off left and right.

A few members of the Blender crew were out at the Summit Stage and Saloon last night to catch Tweak Bird and Kandi Coated. Alas, it was dark and not optimal video taping conditions, but you can get a taste of the sound purveyed by Tweak Bird - a quirkily heavy duo consisting of two brothers based in Los Angeles. Have a look see, will ya?

Festival News: Good and not so good

Although you might not realize it here in Bend this week with these mid-spring temperatures we've been experiencing, summer is still a ways off. But

Posted By on Tue, Feb 3, 2009 at 4:53 PM

Although you might not realize it here in Bend this week with these mid-spring temperatures we've been experiencing, summer is still a ways off. But that didn't keep us from getting all hyped up about the summer music festival circuit this week.

First, we got our hands on the brand new Live From Bonnaroo 2008 DVD (review coming soon in the Source) and jealously watched killer performances by Pearl Jam, Metallica, Tegan and Sara, Broken Social Scene, Galactic and all the other bands we missed by staying in Oregon last summer. Then, today Bonnaroo announced its 2009 lineup which includes none other than seminal jam band Phish, Bruce Springsteen (and his camera-bashing crotch), The Beastie Boys, Wilco, Nine Inch Nails, the Decemberists and many many more.

June is still a good four months away, but this announcement definitely got our live music stoke factor pumping.

But only a few hours after Bonnaroo dished out its lineup, we got a press release from the organizers of the Langerado Music Festival saying that the festival, slated to take place in Miami the first week of March, was cancelled. With a lineup this year featuring Death Cab For Cutie, Snoop Dogg, Ryan Adams, Flogging Molly, Michael Franti & Spearhead and several other high-profile acts, the festival's heads say that "sluggish ticket sales" forced them to pull the plug on Langerado. The festival had become a de facto kick off to the festival season and had become increasingly eclectic in the past few years.

We're just hoping this isn't a sign of things to come for the festival circuit amid the current economic environment.

Local filmmaker Chris Kas just finished work on his short film, "Good News" and wouldn't you know it if the Source Weekly played a starring role. Well, actually one of our boxes was the star, not us. We had nothing to do with it. But take a look at Kas' hilarious film below.
