April 8

MUSICAL STORYTELLING — What do you do when you're sitting in sub zero temps, alone in the woods, escaping bears? Why, you learn harmonica of course! Known for his "Survivorman" documentary series, which was the only internationally broadcast series entirely written, videotaped and hosted alone, Stroud is not only an accomplished outdoorsman, but a storytelling genius. The show will feature stunning video imagery, personal tales and original music, so prepare to be transported far, far into the Canadian wilderness in this unusual performance.

// 7:30pm. Tower Theatre, 835 NW Wall St, Bend. $20-40.

Son Volt

May 5

ALT COUNTRY — Touring in support of their latest album, "Notes Of Blue," this legendary alternative country band is stirring things up with a gritty yet lyrical sound that pushes the boundaries of country music. Band leader Jay Farrar has been creating music since the 80s and helped incorporate a new blues sound into this latest record. Fans can expect to hear new songs blended into their well-known country soul and roots rock sound.

// 8pm. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Drive, Bend. $25. All Ages.

ALT PUNK ROCK — The misfits are blowing into town — be prepared! Icons for outliers everywhere, Ween has a cult-like following and is set to bring its blend of progressive-funk-soul-country-punk to the stage this summer. Early Ween singles like "Bananas and Blow," "Piss Up a Rope" and "Baby Bitch" were designed to be obnoxious, but that's what makes Ween (a combination of the words wuss and penis) standout individualists who intrigue the nonconformists. Having recently reunited, the band will play a mix of songs ranging from psychedelic drawn-out guitar riffs to aggressive, fast-moving punk. Plus, it's worth going just to see Gene Ween's "O" face. A serious treat.

// 7pm. Les Schwab Amphitheater, Bend. $43.
