Bend's Live Music in 2010: It's Gonna Be OK

There is hope for Bend's live music scene in 2010.

Posted By on Thu, Dec 31, 2009 at 12:27 AM

I've written spent some valuable cyber ink and real ink doing some written hand wringing about the future of live music here in Bend. For a while, things looked BTQB (Bleak To Quite Bleak), but now I have some hope.

It's not like the sort of rush we see in the summer, but there are some shows to look forward to in January.

Next week, there's something for the young and angry (at least musically angry) set with the hardcore sounds of Liferuiner, Never Heard the Shot and others at the Domino Room on 1/9. The Silver Moon has some solid indie folk from Unkle Nancy and the Family Jewels the night prior.

Then on Wednesday, January 13, Finn Riggins, the experimental indie poppers we've written about extensively this year, come over from Boise for a free show at McMenamins Old St. Francis School.

Also just announced is a return visit from Indiana-based acoustic punkers Rev. Peyton's Big Damn Band on Monday, January 18.

See, there's hope to get us to the big Gourds show at Winterfest.

Things are fixin' to be a lot better, man.

  • Let's Find These Scoundrelly Bar Thieves

    We at the Blender believe in good ol' American justice -- and every other kind of justice. That's why we're asking you, the Internet reading folks in Bend, to help us find the low-life couple that distracted local filmmaker Chris Kas, then proceeded to jack his leather jacket which contained his wallet, keys and a borrowed HD video camera.

  • Don't Miss The Ascetic Junkies At Silver Moon

    • Dec 2, 2011
    It’s been a while since we’ve seen the talented (and now married) Matt & Kali in Bend Oregon… but that’s all going to change tonight at Silver Moon Tap Room! If you’ve missed past coverage of The Ascetic Junkies, well… you must have been hidden under a rock. From their 2010 album This Cage Has No Bottom, to the new music they are creating (and are sure to share with us tonight), most people just can’t get enough of their unique folk/rock/pop/dance goodness.
