The smooth-singing redhead is touring in support of his latest album, Loverboy, and is joined by Los Angeles throwback rock act, Dawes, who show off their bluesy indie-rock sound with their new album, Nothing is Wrong. Judging by how many people (about a billion, give or take) entered our contest for tickets to this show, Dennen is likely to pack the ACB courtyard. $20 advance tickets at Newport Market. 6:30pm. Athletic Club of Bend, 61615 Athletic Club Drive. Zepparella with Tony G friday 17 You a Led Zeppelin fan? If you have ears and are between the ages of 12 and 70, there's a good chance you love the ordained gods of rock. But have you ever seen Zeppelin's music performed by an exclusively female lineup? Didn't think so. And that's why you should hit up the Domino Room on Friday night for an estrogen-spiked take on Zep's most sacred songs. $15 in advance, $18 at door. Tickets at bendticket.com. 9pm. Domino Room, 51 NW Greenwood Ave.

  • The Wild, Wild East: Of pork chops, pies and pronghorn in Hampton

    There was a time, way back in the '40s and '50s when Hampton Station was a regular stop for the Trailways buses going between Bend and Burns. Today, people go whizzing by without hardly giving the place a glance - me included... But the other day, my wife, Sue, and I stopped at Hampton Station with my son, Dean, who just returned from a year serving with the NATO in Afghanistan. Sue wanted to use the restroom while Dean was getting his back-home-in-Central-Oregon fix, and he had a yen for something home-cooked to snack on. I was waiting in the back of our old '72 Chevy Suburban we use as a workhorse when we're doing wildlife studies in tough-to-get-to places. "Hey, Pop," Dean said, as he opened the back door of the Chevy, "Try this homemade apple turnover." I did and it was deee-licious!

  • Hooked! : There's nothing like a newbie on the river

    Most folks who live or spend a significant amount of time in Central Oregon don't make it long here before finding their way to the lower Deschutes, that 90-plus-mile stretch of desert canyon river that flows out of the Pelton-Round Butte dam outside Madras to the Columbia River near Biggs. Pam DiDente is the exception. A nurse who has been in Central Oregon for three decades, DiDente's experience with the lower Deschutes was limited to crossing the bridge at Warm Springs while shuttling back and forth from Portland. That's a shame, of course, given that famed and acclaimed stretch of water is at once a blue-ribbon trout fishery, steelheading mecca and premier white water river. But after years of procrastinating, DiDente decided to change that last fall when she plunked down the winning bid in our annual charity auction to fish the lower Deschutes with myself and Les Stiles, the former Deschutes County sheriff and an accomplished river guide.
