Dick Dale Tonight at the Domino Room

Dick Dale plays his historic surf tunes tonight in Bend, Oregon.

Posted By on Thu, Dec 16, 2010 at 6:27 PM

As you may have noticed in my music feature this week, I've become obsessed with the yacht that Dick Dale has for sale on his website.

I've also recently been quite enthused by Dale's legendary surf guitar stylings, which I hadn't heard for about a decade until this month when I reacquainted myself with his catalog of insanely skillful guitar tunes. And did you know that Hendrix was influenced by Dick Dale? You didn't know that, did ya?

Dale is at the Domino Room tonight at 8pm and there are still tickets available at the door. It's all ages, so if you're a young guitar slasher, try to make it out this show -- you'll probably learn something.

Chris Chabot Beland Debuts New Album Tonight

With one of the best rock and roll stories behind him, Chris Chabot Beland debuts his new CD.

Posted By on Fri, Dec 10, 2010 at 7:24 PM

There are few rock and roll stories as interesting as the one that belongs to local singer-songwriter Chris Beland, who went by the name Chris Chabot until very recently when he discovered the identity of his real father. That man turned out to be career musician John Beland, a former member of the Flying Burrito Brothers and a guitarist known for his work with several other legendary artists.

The two were united for the first time in the past few weeks, coincidentally right before Chris released his excellent new record, The Weatherman. He's celebrating that release tonight at The Kilns with a release show. That show is at 7:30pm.

Check out the title track from the album -- it's already one of my favorite locally crafted songs of 2010.

Bela Fleck and the Flecktones tonight

Bela Fleck and the Flecktones play Christmas tunes in Bend.

Posted By on Wed, Dec 8, 2010 at 10:03 PM

As a fundraiser for KPOV, Bend's community radio station, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones are coming to Bend tonight to play some of their holiday tunes.

The show is at 7pm tonight out at Mountain View High School and the last I heard, there were still some tickets available. I interviewed Fleck last week and we talked mostly about Christmas music (and how to make it un-cheesy) and also about his long career with the Flecktones. You can read that profile here.

Here's some footage of the Flecktones doing "Jingle Bells" with the help of Alash, the Tuvan throat singers who will also be on hand tonight.

Art for India Show Tonight with Empty Space Orchestra, The Autonomics and More

Posted By on Sun, Dec 5, 2010 at 1:30 AM

One of Bend's most interesting art shows of the year, Art for India, is tonight at the Century Center. The event is a fundraiser for Rise Up International and benefits the humanitarian organization's school in India.

In addition to the art, there's a sweet concert to be seen beginning at 8pm and featuring the sounds of Empty Space Orchestra (who will almost certainly play some material off their soon-to-be-released full-length album), The Autonomics (returning to the site of their breakout Bend Roots Performance), California band The Lakes, as well as long-time Bendite Julie Southwell and friends.

If you show up early for the art, the cost is $10 (includes buffet), but if you show up after 8pm for the show, it's only $5. Century Center is located at 70 SW Century Drive, behind the new US Bank.

Here's some video of The Autonomics at Bend Roots.

All-Star Jam Tonight in Bend

Posted By on Sat, Dec 4, 2010 at 3:00 PM

A collection of veteran Central Oregon musicians, including some heavy hitters, are taking to the stage tonight at the Pine Forest Grange.

The band, dubbed French Z and the Lost Call, features Tim Goodman, a former member of The Call, as well as players who've performed with the like of the Greg Allman Band and Tower of Power. Also in the band is longtime Central Oregon music producer and recording specialist, Frenchy Mallen. Joe Leonardi will also be on hand.

Mallen described the sound as a bluesy mix of Americana and roots rock -- and with the sort of talent he's assembled, we'll go ahead and guarantee they bring the heat.

The show is a family friendly gig and runs from 6pm to 10pm. There's no cover -- it's totally free.

Lucero Tonight at the Domino Room in Bend

Posted By on Wed, Dec 1, 2010 at 12:30 AM

Alt-country-rock band Lucero is in town tonight and playing the Domino Room.

For those not familiar with this Memphis-based band, they dish out a gritty, punk-influenced brand of soulful country rock and have been surging in popularity over the course of the past year, thanks in part to the success of their first major label release, 1372 Overton Park.

The show begins at 8pm and is $15. 21 and over. I Can Lick Any Son of a Bitch in the House opens.

Enjoy a Pre-Thanksgiving Feast with Texas Hippie Coalition

Texas Hippie Coalition plays tonight at the Domino Room in Bend.

Posted By on Wed, Nov 24, 2010 at 5:59 PM

Wondering what you should do on this cold, cold Thanksgiving Eve? Well, you could go to a bar and enjoy an impromptu reunion of someone else's high school, or you can head to the Domino Room tonight for a raucous show from the Texas Hippie Coalition.

The band, the geographical origins of which need no explanation, is a hard rock collective that sounds something like Pantera but with bigger belt buckles and cowboy hats. In short, these guys dress well. Or at least hilariously well. I can't decide which. Oh, and they're not real hippies, in case you hadn't figured that out yet.

The show is at 7pm tonight and also includes opening acts Tempesta and Exfixia. Tickets are $10 at the door.

The Ascetic Junkies Tonight in Bend

The Ascetic Junkies play in Bend. And you should check out their new music video.

Posted By on Fri, Nov 19, 2010 at 6:32 PM

Just a few days after the release of their new full-length album, This Cage Has No Bottom, Portland indie folk rockers The Ascetic Junkies are playing a show tonight at the Silver Moon to celebrate the release.

I profiled the band this week and you can read that right here.

The show is at 9pm, is $7 and Erin Cole-Baker opens.

Cole Huiskamp, the band's bassist, made an excellent video for "Why Do Crows," and excellent cut on the album and I wanted to include that in my story, but unfortunately we still can't embed videos into newspapers. The technology doesn't exist yet.

So here's the video.
