    Polyrhythmics wednesday 11 If you didn't see these guys last time they were in town, the Seattle band is giving you another chance. The Afro-funk band is one part funk, one part jam band, and one part world music (horns!, keys! bells! flutes!). Add all these parts together and you get all-night dance music. If you go to this show, pace yourself - the eight-piece band usually outlasts its fans. 21+. $7 at, $10 DOS. 9pm. Players Bar and Grill, 25 SW Century Dr.

  • The Green Issue
  • Green Machine: Energy Transformation

    Maybe it’s something in the water, or the upholstery of our Subaru Outbacks that makes Central Oregonians so environmentally conscious, a fact that’s readily apparent in our recycling rates (almost 45 percent of our waste is now repurposed) and our embrace of solar power. (We’re home to half a dozen installers and recently added two of the biggest solar systems in state at Bend Broadband’s data center and Facebook’s new server farm in Prineville.)

    Whatever the reason, sustainability isn’t just a way of life in Bend -- it’s an industry that includes everything from small windpower producers like Redmond’s Abney Electrix to a people-powered cycle pub in Bend. This year’s Green Issue is a snapshot of how Central Oregon is putting itself on the forefront of the sustainability movement both individually and collectively. While there are dozens of interesting examples of how entrepreneurs, public agencies and private citizens are blazing a green trail, we’ve narrowed our focus to seven projects that show how Central Oregonians are putting their values into practice; examples range from a multimillion dollar community forest project to a natural soap making business. Read it, share it and then recycle it. (EF)
