Our Picks 5/8 - 5/16

friday 10

Tyler, the Creator

MUSIC— Tyler, the Creator is as talented as he is offensive. Drugs, sex, race and sexual orientation are all fair game for the 22-year-old SoCal rapper. He's managed three albums in four years, and his most recent, Wolf, earned him a full-page spread in Rolling Stone. Appearing with special guest Earl Sweatshirt. All ages. 9 pm. Midtown Ballroom, 51 NW Greenwood Ave. $23. (See Sound page.)

friday 10

Sunset Limited

THEATER—Cormac McCarthy is the best living author of our time. He's the next frickin' Faulkner, OK? From Southwestern gothic to lonesome post-apocalyptic, McCarthy's got it covered. His second play, Sunset Limited, is a "Black" meets "White" (literally, those are the characters' names) retrospective. It's a less boring Waiting for Godot. Opening night. 2nd Street Theater, 220 NE Lafayette Ave. $15. (See Culture page.)

saturday 11

Historical Walking Tours

HISTORY—From the haunted McCann mansion to the old whorehouses on Bond Street, there's a whole lot of history in downtown Bend and this is the day to see it. Friendly history buffs will host tours through the city. The lesson continues back at the museum with tips for researching historic houses. It's all part of National Historic Preservation Month. 12-4 pm. Des Chutes Historical Museum, 129 NW Idaho Ave. Free.

saturday 11

Chicken Coop Tour

COMMUNITY—Why did the chicken cross Wall Street? To get to the urban farm! Never mind... The future of the local food movement starts in Bend backyards. Many locals are already on the sustainability train. Learn how to raise chickens by visiting neighborhood coops around town. More info at getcowgirlcash.com, maps available at Newport Market. 10am. $10. (See Culture page.)

saturday 11

Custom Chrome Moto Show

MOTOS & MUSIC—A tribute to things that go "Vroom!" Antique and stock motorcycles from the '30s to the '80s will be on display along with new custom bikes and all the garb: vintage leathers, bitchin' helmets and burly boots. Music by MOsley WOtta, Hopeless Jack, The Autonomics and more. 4 pm. Midtown Ballroom, 51 Greenwood Ave. $5 at bendticket.com, $8 at door w/canned food donation.

sunday 12

Super Water Sympathy

MUSIC—The Shreveport, La.-based female-fronted indie pop band is psyched. This summer the ferocious road dogs are hitting the highway with the Vans Warped Tour—again!—following the 2013 release of their second album, Hydrogen Child. 9 pm. The Belfry, 302 E. Main St., Sisters. $8.

sunday 12

Call Your Mother

MOM'S DAY—Or better yet, spend the day together! Pull on some running shoes for the low-key 5K/10K Mom's Day Dash (9 am, Les Schwab Amphitheater), then take her out for a fancy brunch at 10 Below, McMenamins, Crossings, or any of the destination resorts. Coolest event, though, is the two-mile wildflower hike and creekside brunch at Rimrock Ranch. Call 541-330-0017 to register.

monday 13

Media Salon

OPRAHThe Source's debut Media Salon. A think & drink event. It's like our newspaper comes to life as Editor Phil "Oprah" Busse Q&As with three engaging guests from our "Modern Moms" issue. 7 pm, Broken Top Bottle Shop, 1740 NW Pence Lane. Free.

monday 13

Room 237

FILM—Stanley Kubrick's 1980 The Shining (yes, filmed in part at Timberline) is both one of the greatest showcases for Jack Nicholson's unnerving craziness and a (literally) chilling psychological thriller. It also has spawned a cult following. The essay-documentary Room 237 explores that fanaticism and surrounding cloud of conspiracy theories—some hilariously mockable, others frighteningly convincing. 8pm. Tin Pan Theater, 869 NW Tin Pan Alley. $6.

thursday 16


MUSIC—Kick off summer right with the rock-bluegrass duo at Crow's Feet Commons' courtyard. Deschutes, Bend's oldest brewery, will take over all the taps at the bike/ski/coffee/beer shop inside the historic Rademacher house. Outside, it'll be tough to sit still, with all the beer drinkin' and banjo pickin' going on. 5 pm. Crow's Feet Commons, 875 NW Brooks St. Free.
