The Brothers Comatose

Two things to know about The Brothers Comatose, based primarily on their name—the band's guitar and banjo players, who also act as lead vocalists, are in fact brothers Ben and Alex Morrison. Second, and most importantly, despite their name, the music they play is anything but comatose. Expect to be stomping and clapping along, perhaps even singing along to the band's lively stringed sound. The Brothers Comatose have opened for The Devil Makes Three and Yonder Mountain String Band, placing them directly in the string band sweet spot Bend has grown to embrace and love. Also performing: Marty O'Reilly and The Old Soul Orchestra. 8 pm, Thursday, April 9. The Belfry, 302 Main St, Sisters. $13.


Portland-based rootsy folk-rock band Fruition has packed venues in its hometown and across the country. Making Bend a frequent stop on its packed touring schedule has brought the band's high-energy, acoustic sound back to town to headline the Bend Spring Festival on Friday night. This year finds the band opening for bluegrass/folk-rockers Trampled by Turtles and playing at the infamous High Sierra Music Festival, among many others. The band, which specializes in danceable string-based music, originally came together over a shared love of music, life on the road, and a sense of adventure. The adventure continues this weekend at Bend Spring Festival. 9:15 pm, Friday, April 10. Bend Spring Festival, NorthWest Crossing Neighborhood. Free.


On the opposite side of the rock spectrum, Colorado-based Yamn brings its spacey livetronica to the Volcanic Theatre Pub. From entrancing synth melodies to head-banging rock riffs with soulful elements in between, Yamn plays danceable, seductive jams that it hopes enhance the lives of listeners. Don't expect to see a standup bass on stage at this show, but rather a laptop that assists in producing the band's hard dance beats and electronic overtones. 9 pm, Wednesday, April 15. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $7/adv., $10/door.
