The Electric Flavor of Boot Juice

This big band brings a fun energy to its live shows, perfect for fans of rock, folk and Americana
If you're looking for a good time this week, look no further. Coming from Northern California to Bend this Thursday is Boot Juice, a rocking seven-piece that brings a lot of energy and that big band feel to the stage.

Band Fact Sheet: THICK

Brooklyn punk trio is going to bring it when it hits Volcanic
Expressing anger and getting out your frustrations actually feels pretty good sometimes. If you're having trouble doing so, listening to a song from Brooklyn's THICK will probably help you release that tension.

Wilco bassist John Stirratt talks 'Cruel Country,' 'Yankee Hotel Foxtrot' and hospitality

Thank you Ole Miss
The story of Wilco is an important one to my musical DNA. After Uncle Tupelo branched off in separate directions in 1994, these new paths created both Son Volt and Wilco, two bands that as a child were played very frequently in my house.

Thank You, Bill

Bill Powers passed the torch on to Ky Burt as the Storytellers Open Mic host, where its loving spirit will remain intact
Bill Powers has long been the face of the Storytellers Open Mic series at The Commons, a weekly affair on Tuesday nights that added even more magic to the often-buzzing Brooks Alley. But after more than five years of running things, Powers announced on Facebook that he would officially be stepping down from his role as host.

Gung Ho for Bob Weir & Wolf Brothers

The Wolf Brothers are the gritty, raw sounding, cousin to Dead & Company that are able to more masterfully reconstruct the Dead's more acoustic and blues driven anthems.
At 74, Bob Weir is still discovering himself and where he can take his music. Perhaps that is why he has assembled two distinct groups to keep the songs and spirit of the Grateful Dead alive after all of these years.

Gung Ho for Jake the Human

Strap in: Local comedian Jake Woodmansee performs three unique comedy sets over the weekend
Local comedian Jake Woodmansee is primed to perform three days in a row with comedy sets at Open Space Event Studios this weekend.

Nyx Division is a Portland Gem

Get familiar with the goth rock stylings of this four-piece before it hits the High Desert Music Hall
After joining forces in Portland during the pandemic, post-punk four-piece Nyx Division released its first EP this past March. Draped in reverb, driving tempos and haunting vocals over six songs, the "Dark Star EP" is an incredible sampler that highlights Nyx Division's playfulness and power as rising champions of goth and glam rock in Portland.

Artist Fact Sheet: Tommy Guerrero

The San Francisco native continues to rip on his board and on the stage
Many people know Tommy Guerrero for his work bombing down the hills of San Francisco with Powell Peralta and the Bones Brigade team. His laidback style on a skateboard was so enjoyable and easy to watch.

Get to Know Something Dirty

The Bend-based four-piece has hit the ground running and is having fun while doing it
Since starting a band around 18 months ago, Something Dirty has been on an awesome streak of song releases. With Gregg Swanson and Jesse Fish on guitar/vocals, Dan Scroggin on drums and Chad Crowell on bass, Something Dirty brings back a taste of '80s and '90s rock that walks a space somewhere between R.E.M and Pearl Jam.

The Joy of Pandemic Songwriting

Mt. Joy hits the Hayden Homes stage Aug. 13
Ever since Mt. Joy made a big splash in the music world with "Silver Lining," the single from the band's 2018 self-titled debut album that became a No. 1 hit at adult alternative radio, the band has been widely labeled as a folk-rock act and frequently compared to The Lumineers. Mt. Joy singer/guitarist Matt Quinn will even allow that "Silver Lining" sounded a little like The Lumineers, with its strummy folk-ish verses and stacked harmonies in the chorus.
