Source Suggests 5/27-6/3 

Dead at the Doj

While Dead at the Doj might suggest a karate lesson gone horribly wrong, it's actually a celebration of the music of The Grateful Dead performed by Brent Alan, Mark Ransom & The Mostest, Riding Tide, DJ Grateful Kev (Kevin Bryne), and featuring Jive Coulis. It really goes without saying, but for information's sake, The Grateful Dead are considered to be "the pioneering Godfathers of the jam band world." What does that mean? Expect rock music with psychedelic, folk, blues, and reggae influences and plenty of improvisation. The family-friendly event is a fundraiser supporting the High Desert Martial Arts Education Foundation. All ages. 7 pm- midnight. Saturday, May 30. High Desert Martial Arts, 2535 NE Studio Rd. $10 suggested donation.

Tony Smiley

Tony Smiley, a Portland-based one-man-band, has been coming to Bend to play shows for many years and over the course of time has become a local favorite. Often dubbed the "loop ninja," Smiley plays a unique brand of electro-acoustic music that he creates as he loops his way through each multilayered track. His cosmic dance of melodies include rock, hip-hop, reggae, and everything in between, including the occasional splash of Mongolian throat singing and beatboxing. Expect soulful original songs, improved looped beats, and creative cover songs. Come prepared to dance. 10 pm. Saturday, May 30. Astro Lounge, 939 NW Bond St. $5/adv, $7/door.

Pachow Kabang & TWIN

Mandolin, rhythm guitar, harmonica, a washboard: What more can you ask for from a Minnesota-based folk-punk band? While only comprised of three members, Pachow Kabang's gritty style follows a similar vein as Bend locals Larry and His Flask. TWIN is the brain-child of Winnipeg, Canada's David Fort and Brooklyn Sampson. The duo plays hypnotic, alternative folk with both a sinister and a heartfelt edge. TWIN takes influences from bands like My Bloody Valentine, The Pogues, Bob Marley, and Woodie Guthrie. 9 pm. Monday, Jun 1. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $5.
