Out of Town 5/4 - 5/12: Pato Banton, KT Tunstall, Citizen Cope, The Kills 

Headed to Portland this weekend? Here are a few bands to check out.


wednesday 4

Pato Banton

Odds are if you're a reggae fan living in Bend, you've likely had the opportunity to see famed reggae musician Pato Banton at some point during your residency here. The Los Angeles-based (by way of Jamaica) singer has made several stops in Bend within the last couple years and even though you'll have to travel to Portland this time around, it'll be worth it to catch his roots- and ska-influenced reggae in person. 9pm, Mt. Tabor Theater.

thursday 5

KT Tunstall

If you live on this planet, at some point in your life you've probably heard KT Tunstall's "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree," which still probably doesn't make any sense, but was catchy as hell. Or perhaps you've heard the equally catchy "Suddenly I See," by the Scottish singer-songwriter-guitarist. She's more than past hits though, Tunstall plays rocking bluesy folk-rock worth giving a listen. 8pm, Aladdin Theater.

sunday 8 & monday 9

Citizen Cope

If you like a good beat, Citizen Cope may be the best bang for your buck. The Brooklyn-by-way-of Washington D.C. artist and his band mix hip-hop, folk and blues to create refined beats that will have you swaying. Add in his slightly rougher vocals and you've got an unbeatable combination. What better way to celebrate Mother's Day than gettin' down with your momma? 8pm, Doug Fir Lounge.

tuesday 10

The Kills

Out of Town has a new band obsession in The Kills. Before The Kills released their most recent album, Blood Pressures, Alison Mosshart took a break from the band to join up with Jack White and form The Dead Weather. Blood Pressures is filled with the rock and roll attitude the band has become known for. The lead single, "Satellite" hasn't stopped playing on our iPods and "Nail in My Coffin" is phenomenal. Mosshart eases up on the attitude in "The Last Goodbye," showing a softer side. 8pm, Wonder Ballroom.
