  • What Doesn't Kill You

    Ever heard that phrase, "What doesn't kill me, makes me stronger?" That's exactly why I eat Popeyes fried chicken every morning for breakfast, four Reese's peanut butter cups for lunch (washed down with a tumbler of Jack), fo

  • Band of Horses: Infinite Arms

    I first heard Band of Horses playing at the Les Schwab Amphitheater four years ago playing over the PA between sets of a Flaming Lips show. I ended up spending the summer of 2006 listening to their debut, Everything All The Time, and almost nothing else.

  • KG's How to Rock Guide: The star of Trainwreck and Tenacious D is coming to town and has advice for your band

    There are only a few rock stars who can make a claim about how they want to pitch a television show about their band and be taken seriously. But Kyle Gass is one of those select few. First off, he's already been part of an act, Tenacious D, that was known for its TV series long before ever even releasing an album and secondly, his idea for his current band, Trainwreck is just crazy enough to work. "So here's the deal. We tour around in a shitty wreckabago and we get mixed up in some crazy shenanigans and then we solve crime. Because, you know, you gotta have the Scoobie Doo element," says Gass, outlining the basis of the show (the theme song for which appears on the band's album) he actually pitched to studio execs.

  • Voiceover: Sunday, Sunday, Sunday

    Back in my pre-Bend days, I thought I could make it as a television commercial actor and movie extra. Being on camera would be cool enough but better it would help me get to what I really wanted to do and that was to become a voiceover person.

  • Down Beat: Jazz is alive and well in Bend

        It’s Thursday night and Joe Rohrbacher of Just Joe’s Music  on south Highway 97 has turned his store into a makeshift nightclub. A club that will feature local jazz musicians Dillon Schneider (guitar), John Allen (bass) and and Stephen Tate (drums) backing Portland tenor sax player David Evans that evening in concert.

  • Muddied: a comeuppance in the Hood

        As is often the truth, the moment someone gets a bit cocky, a bit over confident, they get slapped back down to earth. And so it was with me this past weekend.

  • Source staff gets a nod from the Society of Professional Journos

    We’re a pretty humble bunch around here, but we just had to let ya’ll know that your hometown alt weekly nabbed a couple of nods this past week from the Society of Professional Journalists for our writing and reporting in 2009. Competing against non-daily newspapers and magazines from across the state and in southwest Washington, the Source garnered awards for news, social, issues and business reporting.
  • The Wandering Eye
  • Dudley Takes the Lead! (Yawn.)

    There’s a new poll out this week that contains good news and bad news for Oregon Republicans. The good news: The poll shows their candidate, Chris Dudley, leading Democrat John Kitzhaber by a one-point margin.

  • Bend Over, Bend - Here It Comes Again

    Bend racked up another dubious distinction this week: As reported in The Bulletin on Wednesday, we led the nation in declining home prices between the first quarter of 2009 and the first quarter of this year. Over that one-year period, home prices in the Bend Metropolitan Statistical Area fell by almost a quarter (23.
