Starting today, The Blender is going to do our damndest to bring you a guide for the weekend to come every Friday. We're not saying that our readership is out of touch and needs a blog post to direct them toward non-sucky weekend events, but rather lending a helping hand in whittling down that long mental list of things to do you've compiled while slaving away in your cubicle.

So, here we go!


PUSH art show: Treefort, 114 NW Minnesota Ave.

The First Friday Art Walk has been increasingly packed with quality art for the past few months, and we're not just talking about bear-and-eagle Northwest nature scapes (although those are cool in their own right). There's been an emergence of more out-of-the-box art exhibits and one of the most interesting of tonight's walk is the PUSH show - a fundraiser for the Division Street Skatepark Project which features innovative designs from local and regional artists on the decks of skateboards.


Moon Mountain Ramblers: Silver Moon Brewing Co., 24 NW Greenwood Ave. 8pm, $7.

It's the Source Weekly's 2008 "Best Local Band" back in action at it's home venue, the Silver Moon. It's always a hootin', hollerin' time when these guys and gal fire it up on their home turf. Also, there's word that they have a CD coming out soon, so swing by and see if you can get a preview of some of those tracks.

Lava City Roller Dolls: Smokin' Ashes vs. Prima Donnas: Central Oregon Indoor Sports Center, 20795 High Desert Ln. 5pm.,

The hometown Smokin' Ashes go head to head with Olympia's Prima Donnas in a knock-down-drag-out roller derby match. But hey, it's kid friendly!


Sagebrush Rock: Scoots Bar and Grill 175 N Larch St. Sisters

These guys are quintessential Central Oregon rockers with a long standing reputation for dead on covers and head bobbing originals. Bend is really quiet on this night, so head out to Sisters and get Sagebrush Rocked. Wow, that was a pretty stupid pun.

  • Let's Find These Scoundrelly Bar Thieves

    • Jun 27, 2012
    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.
