Source Suggests 4/29-5/6 

First Friday Party Featuring Bobby Lindstrom and Mean Ed Sharlet

"The blues," Steve Martin once explained, "just get me so blue." But this First Friday, Bobby Lindstrom brings upbeat, bluesy rock to the Crow's Feet Commons courtyard. With raspy vocals, high energy, and passion, Lindstrom plays a set of his favorite blues covers mixed in with original songs. 7-9 pm. Friday, May 1. Crow's Feet Commons, 875 NW Brooks St. No cover.

Hobbs the Band

Hobbs the Band has been burning up the Central Oregon music scene since they first debuted at the Sisters Folk Festival in 2012. The progressive blues rock band comprises several familiar faces including Hobbs Magarét, Patrick Pearsall, Kaleb Kelleher, Aaron Andre Miller, and Jim Goodwin. The post-industrial blues rock sound incorporates elements of funk, psychedelia, and shredding Texas guitar riffs to create unique, yet incredibly listenable tunes. Songs range in theme from a tribute to the band's inspiration from Stevie Ray to laser beams and space commanders. 9 pm-12:30 am. Friday, May 1. Astro Lounge, 939 NW Bond St. $5.

Mexican Gunfight

While Portland-based band Mexican Gunfight formed in 2006, the four old friends have worked together in various combinations since around 1985. The band incorporates bluesy grit, country lyricism, and the soulfulness of gospel into their specialized brand of rock and roll. Some songs are tinged with Latin and jazz, which gives the band a broad spectrum of sound and influence. While the band often leans more towards the easy listening side of rock and roll, they are all incredibly talented musicians who know how to jam when the time calls for it. 9 pm. Saturday, May 2. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $5.
