Source Suggests 10/21-10/28 


Hopefully named after the delightful character from The Lord of the Rings, Bombadil brings its signature eclectic sound to Father Luke's Room. Described as "Syd Barrett meets the Beatles," their new album combines every single genre you can think of—appropriate since the band doesn't really fit into one themselves. As we all know, those free shows in Father Luke's are nothing short of a three-hour sweaty dance party, and Bombadil sound like the perfect band to be leading the way. 7 pm. Thursday, Oct. 22. McMenamins, Old St. Francis School, 700 NW Bond St. No cover.

Michael Martin Murphey

Michael Martin Murphey is an old-school cowboy and self-described "singer of American Cowboy Music." His work in Austin during the 1970s is nothing short of legendary, while playing alongside Willie Nelson and Jerry Jeff Walker. After his first album was released, Rolling Stone wrote, "On the strength of his first album alone, Michael Murphey is the best new songwriter in the country." Murphey brings his down-home country sound to Redmond to share his acclaimed songwriting skills with Central Oregon. 9 pm. Saturday, Oct. 24. Deschutes Expo Center, 3800 SW Airport Way. $15.

Thomas Mapfumo & the Blacks Unlimited

Also known as "The Lion of Zimbabwe," Thomas Mapfumo makes Chimurenga music. It is defined as music for the people's struggle and seeks to raise awareness about the people of Zimbabwe and the current issues that plague them. Now it is corruption in public offices and the pursuit of equality and dignity. His bluesy, afrobeat-guitar sound is remarkable with vocals that dance the line of pleasure, pain, and power with astounding dexterity. No one on Earth sounds like Mapfumo and never will again. See this show just to experience his raw performance in person. 8 pm. Friday, Oct. 23. The Belfry, 302 E. Main St., Sisters. $25.
