Picks 9/7-9/14 

Thursday 8


ROCK—The Seattle-based four-piece sounds like a mixture of Portugal The Man and some weird fuzzy space rock. Its debut album is a fun exploration of '70s synth pop and modern Pacific Northwest rock, and this is very much a band to watch. Headwaves is going to be huge a year from now. You heard it here first. // 9pm. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr., Bend. $6-$8.

Thursday 8

Jack Shimabukuro

UKULELE—There's nothing quite like the sweet sounds of the ukulele to help you forget that the nights are getting colder and summer is almost over. For your last-gasp-of-summer dose of uke and other Hawaii-inspired modern rock, look no further than the Tower Theater for Jack Shimabukuro's Thursday night show. // 7pm. Tower Theater, 835 NW Wall St., Bend. $52.40-$62.50.

Friday 9-Sunday 11

Sisters Folk Festival

FOLK—Sweet gospel. Southwestern strings. Hymnals and folk and Delta blues—and all going quite well together. The venues change from show to show, but exploration, collaboration and a grand Americana time are just part of what makes the Sisters Folk Festival so special. With a lineup that includes Richard Thompson, Ruthie Foster, Shawn Mullins, Scott Pemberton and more, you won't want to miss it. // Downtown Sisters. Times and locations vary; visit sistersfolkfestival.org for info.

Friday 9

Wild & Scenic Film Festival

FILM—The highly anticipated ninth annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival is brought to Bendities by the Oregon Natural Desert Association and features short films that showcase the world's natural wonders. Watch and hear amazing stories of environmental activists, athleticism and courageous explorations on the big screen. // 4:30pm & 8pm showings. Tower Theatre, 835 NW Wall St., Bend. $12 GA, $8 students.

Saturday 10

DL Downer & Lady Dice

HIP-HOP—It's time for another excellent hip-hop show! DL Downer and Lady Dice are straight out of Bakersfield and that West Coast swag is prevalent in every bar and every flow. Their live shows are extremely fun, and they're one of the more high energy hip-hop acts out there. Even if you haven't heard them before, this is a show worth checking out. // 7:30pm. Domino Room, 51 NW Greenwood Ave., Bend. $12.

Saturday 10


ROOTS & ROCK—This Portland-based quintet began by busking on the streets—but these days, they're filling venues from Ottawa to Omaha and rocking some of the biggest roots music festivals around. Come for the sweet three-part harmonies and stay for the solid mix of blues, pop and rootsy, string-laden rock. The fact that this show is free doesn't hurt either. // 7pm. Worthy Brewing, 495 NE Bellevue Dr., Bend. No cover.

Saturday 10

Barrel Thief First Birthday

PARTY—You only turn one once and that's reason to celebrate! The Barrel Thief at Oregon Spirit Distillers is having a first anniversary party with free cake, distillery tours and music from rockabilly band Boxcar Stringband. Sample award-winning whiskey and a special release just for the big day. // 2pm-close. The Barrel Thief Lounge, 740 NE First St., Bend. No cover.

Tuesday 13

Tedeschi Trucks Band

ROOTS—This is a 12-piece band with a sound so massive that it's hard not to get swept up in their roots explosiveness. With the talented Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers opening, the evening should bring a wild and impressive sound. This is part of the Peak Summer Nights concert series. Bring the whole family. // 5:30pm. Athletic Club of Bend, 61615 Athletic Club Dr., Bend. $45.

Wednesday 14


EPIC MUSIC—Federale sounds like the soundtrack to the most epic spaghetti western never made. Their weird and wonderful style makes them one of the most original bands touring and one of the most fun live shows we've ever seen. Federale creates a dance party like no other. // 9pm. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr., Bend. $10.

Wednesday 14

Thana Alexa Project

JAZZ—Born in the U.S. but raised in Croatia, Thana Alexa—along with her friends—brings a sophisticated, expressive, jazzy sound to Tetherow's new event pavilion. Joined by musicians Ben Flocks, Eden Ladin, Noam Wiesenberg and Peter Kronreif, it's sure to be a fun night looking out over the links. // 7:30pm. Tetherow, 61240 Skyline Ranch Rd., Bend. $36.
