The Helio Sequence Tonight at the Tower 

The Helio Sequence plays tonight at the Tower Theatre in Bend, Oregon.

It seems like it's been months since those first posters hit the streets announcing that The Helio Sequence was coming to play at the Tower Theatre -- causing some of the more cynical indie rock fans in Bend to stop and say, "Really? No way."

But it's true, and the show, the second installment of the PDXchange Program, is tonight with our very own Empty Space Orchestra opening. I chatted with ESO's Shane Thomas at Last Band Standing a couple weeks ago and he played it pretty cool when asked how excited he and his gang were to play that show, but you could tell they were stoked. When I tried to press him about a possible ESO/Helio Sequence collaboration, he just shrugged. From my experience, shrugs mean "I dunno...maybe." I'll take that.

And it should be pointed out that we're damn lucky to have The Helio Sequence -- perhaps one of the best indie rock duos you'll ever hear -- in Bend, considering this is one of their only U.S. shows of the summer. The sounds are poppy, danceable but plenty deep. In short, it's the sort of stuff that doesn't often come to town (like Band of Horses), so take advantage of it.

The show is at 8pm, it's all ages and tickets are still available.

    We at the Blender believe in good ol' American justice -- and every other kind of justice. That's why we're asking you, the Internet reading folks in Bend, to help us find the low-life couple that distracted local filmmaker Chris Kas, then proceeded to jack his leather jacket which contained his wallet, keys and a borrowed HD video camera.

  • Don't Miss The Ascetic Junkies At Silver Moon

    • Dec 2, 2011
    It’s been a while since we’ve seen the talented (and now married) Matt & Kali in Bend Oregon… but that’s all going to change tonight at Silver Moon Tap Room! If you’ve missed past coverage of The Ascetic Junkies, well… you must have been hidden under a rock. From their 2010 album This Cage Has No Bottom, to the new music they are creating (and are sure to share with us tonight), most people just can’t get enough of their unique folk/rock/pop/dance goodness.
