Source Suggests 3/25-4/1 

Tom VandenAvond & Woebegone

With a raspy voice and an acoustic guitar slung over his shoulder, Tom VandenAvond tells contemporary stories of a life well lived. From his midwest roots, to Texas, to recording an album with Bend's own Larry and His Flask boys, VandenAvond is deeply Americana. When VandenAvond sings, you listen. Blending country, folk and Americana, VandenAvond's music has a strong stringed instrument sound that mixes perfectly with his sometimes rough, yet perfectly raspy vocals. It's only fitting that VandenAvond plays this show with Woebegone, the latest project from members of LAHF. 9 pm. Thu, Mar 26. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $5.

New Kingston, Arise Roots & Realize

Brooklyn-based Reggae band New Kingston takes its name by blending its Jamaican roots with the progressive music scene in NYC home. The band combines traditional reggae music with modern R&B influences, creating a fresh sound that revitalizes the reggae sound as a whole. New Kingston is made up of brothers Country Jr., Stephen and Tahir Panton, who've all played together since their childhood. New Kingston has opened for Collie Buddz, Matisyahu, SOJA, Rebelution and many other of the biggest names in present-day reggae. Arise Roots and Realize open. 8 pm. Sun, Mar 29. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $10 adv.

Polecat & Eric Tollefson Duo

Odds are if you've been in Bend for a little while, you've probably been to either a Polecat or Eric Tollefson show. Both have played jam-packed shows at McMenamins over the last few years and Polecat has brought its roots music sound to Pickin' and Paddlin'. The Bellingham, WA-based band plays roots music with a unique take that incorporates bluegrass, country, celtic rock, reggae and world music into its sound. With a fiddle, standup bass, 12-string guitar and lead electric guitar, Polecat plays nearly as many stringed instruments as will fit onstage in creating its folky-roots jams. A former Bend resident, Tollefson's baritone voice resonates through his pop, folk and blues-inspired music. 9 pm. Fri, Mar 27. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $8 adv., $10 door.
