Bend, Oregon Weekend Entertainment Guide 

The options for entertainment this weekend may not be immense, but there are definitely a few shows worth checking out. Here are a few of our suggests for musical and comedic goodness this weekend.

Tony Smiley & The Bird

friday 9

Portland’s Tony Smiley calls himself a “Loop Ninja,” by which he means that he uses technological gadgets (those are the best kind of gadgets) to make himself into a one-man band. He does everything from straight-ahead rock to beat boxing as well as some more experimental sounds, like Mongolian throat singing. Party time, excellent. 10pm. Bendistillery Martini Bar, 850 NW Brooks St.

friday-saturday 9-10

Typically, when Floater comes to town, they play a pair of shows, which is what they’re doing this time around. But the difference here is that rather than playing the Midtown Ballroom or the Domino Room, they’re appearing at a much cozier sports bar in Mountain’s Edge. Friday night is fully rocking and electric while Saturday features the band going unplugged. 9pm both nights. Mountain’s Edge Bar, 61131 S. Highway 97.

Doug Benson, Graham Elwood

saturday 10

The star of Super High Me and VH1’s Best Week Ever comes to Bend for a special one-night theater show in which he’ll dazzle you with jokes about pop culture, movies and of course, the reefer. The show is opened by the equally funny Graham Elwood. Read all about Benson in this week’s Culture feature. $20/adv, $25/door. 7pm. Tower Theatre, 835 NW Wall St.

Fix-ation IPA Launch Party

saturday 10

How many beers are named specifically in support of a spay and neuter project? Well, at least one, and that’s Silver Moon’s Fix-ation IPA which arrives in honor of the Bend Spay and Neuter Project. Omnipresent folk rocker Leif James provides the music. Sliding scale donation of $5-10. 8pm. Silver Moon Brewing Co. 24 NW Greenwood Ave.


Another option, which we might be checking out ourselves is Electric Moccasin Party at the M&J Tavern. The local band, which blends rock and a bit of reggae, has us itching to see them based on their wicked-awesome name alone.

  • Let's Find These Scoundrelly Bar Thieves

    • Jun 27, 2012
    We at the Blender believe in good ol' American justice -- and every other kind of justice. That's why we're asking you, the Internet reading folks in Bend, to help us find the low-life couple that distracted local filmmaker Chris Kas, then proceeded to jack his leather jacket which contained his wallet, keys and a borrowed HD video camera.

  • Don't Miss The Ascetic Junkies At Silver Moon

    • Dec 2, 2011
    It’s been a while since we’ve seen the talented (and now married) Matt & Kali in Bend Oregon… but that’s all going to change tonight at Silver Moon Tap Room! If you’ve missed past coverage of The Ascetic Junkies, well… you must have been hidden under a rock. From their 2010 album This Cage Has No Bottom, to the new music they are creating (and are sure to share with us tonight), most people just can’t get enough of their unique folk/rock/pop/dance goodness.
