  • We Do It Harder In Bend

    The idea for a Reverse PPP brings to mind the difference I have noticed between the two places I split my time: Bend and Portland. Where else but Bend would something as physically taxing as the PPP cry out for making it harder.

  • Sound Check: Bend gets sweaty and sexy with Brett Dennen and G.Love

    Sexy dancing and crowded clubs. That's what this column will be about this week, because, well those two things are what have been cemented in the mind of Sound Check... and we just can't shake them free. The crowded club side of things stems from Thursday night's incredibly well attended G. Love and Special Sauce show at the Domino Room. It was already getting cozy in the D. Room when local Eric Tollefson impressed us with a shockingly rocking, pleasantly bluesy set to open the show. But by the time I returned to the venue after crossing the street to check the score on the Oregon/Boise St. game and then see the subsequent "punch heard 'round the world," things were different. First off, there was a "Sold Out" sign on the door and secondly, you could hardly move in there.
