Source Suggests 8/5-8/12 

Freekbass

Cincinnati-based funk musician Freekbass worked in a music store while studying the classics of Larry Graham, Sly Stone, Stevie Wonder, and Parliament. He worked there to pay off his first bass guitar that was on layaway. Now, with bass in hand, Freekbass creates funky beats sure to have listeners dancing from the first note. Not one to just play traditional funk classics, Freekbass incorporates electronica into his soundscape. Influences range from Sly Stone and George Clinton to Daft Punk and Radiohead. Prepare to get funky. 9 pm. Thursday, Aug 6. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $5/adv., $7/door.

Moon Mountain Ramblers

As August begins, it's important to soak up as much free outdoor live music as possible. Lucky for us, GoodLife Brewing has free live music every Tuesday outside in their beer garden. This Tuesday GoodLife welcomes one of Bend's longest running and most energetic bands. Moon Mountain Ramblers have been playing their unique brand of acoustic bluegrass and rock for more than a decade. With tasteful flavors of Celtic, bluegrass, jazz, Latin, rock, and more, the Ramblers have a sound that appeals to a variety of musical tastes. 7-9 pm. Tuesday, Aug 11. GoodLife Brewing, 70 SW Century Dr. No cover.

Dawes

Roots rockers Dawes have graced a number of Bend's stages. My personal favorite appearance came in 2011 at Silver Moon, where they had the entire room dancing all night. It was right after their album Nothing is Wrong came out and they played stellar tracks like "Fire Away" (watch video of this on The Source's YouTube page). Dawes' Americana influenced indie rock has only progressed since then. Their most recent album, All Your Favorite Bands, features strong storytelling alongside their soulful indie rock tunes. Dawes has earned their headlining status and with a full roster of hits shouldn't be missed, including their most recent single "Things Happen." 8 pm. Tuesday, Aug 11. Tower Theatre, 835 NW Wall St. $35.
