Saturday is Record Store Day: Celebrate at Bend's Ranch Records

April 17 is Record Store Day and Ranch Records is celebrating in Bend.

Posted By on Sat, Apr 17, 2010 at 4:34 AM

It's somewhat of a strange holiday (or probably not actually a holiday exactly) but Saturday (4/17) is Record Store Day. Across the country, record stores will celebrate the spirit of independent music with events and concerts inside and outside of their shops.

In Bend, we only have one actual independent record store, and that's Ranch Records. For Saturday, Ranch is celebrating with a lineup of live music and some specialty items for sale.

The store opens at 10am and live music will begin around 2 p.m. with an acoustic performance, followed around 2:30 by a set from local psychedelic popsters Yenn.

Around 3 p.m., Ranch welcomes Larry and His Flask into the store (or out on the sidewalk if weather permits) for a set that's sure to bring in their ever-growing gang of fans (if you saw them at the Silver Moon last week, you know what I'm talking about) to have some midday fun.

And, of course, the store will be open for business, offering up some special items in honor of the special day. So get out there and dig through the bins -- it's so much more rewarding than scrolling through iTunes.

    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.
