Homegrown Music Showcase Tonight: Tons of Bend Acts at the Tower

It's all music and it's all local tonight at the Tower Theatre.

How much local music can you fit onto one stage?

Well, the Tower Theatre is tackling that question tonight with the Homegrown Music Showcase.

The show, which we featured in this week’s issue, brings together a roster that includes Sisters folkie Dennis McGregor, blues rocker Eric Tollefson, the pop and soul singer Reed Thomas Lawrence and ethnomusicologist Shireen Amini. Seeing as how their name is synonymous with Bend music, Empty Space Orchestra is also on the bill, so the ESOers out there can get their first fix since Halloween.

The show kicks off at 7pm and tickets are $15 for adults and $7.50 for children under 12. Proceeds go to benefit Bend’s Ronald McDonald House.

Here’s a collection of video from some of the performers on the bill:

  • Don't Miss The Ascetic Junkies At Silver Moon
