Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Coolio headed to Bend

Popular '90s rapper to play 2018 Oregon WinterFest

Posted By on Wed, Nov 8, 2017 at 2:40 PM

Remember this guy?

How could you not?

Coolio is firmly cemented in '90s pop culture. Not only did he give us the 1996 rap anthem and Grammy-winning "Gangsta's Paradise," but many of us who grew up in the '90s will remember his theme song to Nickelodeon's Kenan and Kel.

Coolio has been confirmed to perform at the 2018 Oregon WinterFest—in the Music Chalet on Feb. 17 at 9pm.

Curious about what Coolio has been up for the past decade... or two? You may have seen him acting in a few HBO movies, a short-lived 2008 reality show called "Coolio's Rules," and the 2009 web series "Cooking With Coolio," in which he prepared healthy comfort food on a budget—or "Ghetto Gourmet." He released a cookbook under the same name and is currently working on another with a fellow friend and bandmate.

This year, Coolio released a new single titled "Kill Again," and is touring worldwide.

If you missed "Cooking With Coolio"—here's him teaching viewers how to make a tasty caprese salad in true Coolio style.
