While the actual Bend Roots Revival at the Century Center doesn't kick off until tomorrow evening, you can get your Roots on a day early with the annual Night of the Dead show tonight at the Victorian Cafe.
The former home of the Bend Roots Revival (before it became one of the biggest music events in town) will host Rising Tide, Bend's only Grateful Dead tribute act.
The band has played the festival for several years running, kicking off the weekend in style with some of your favorite Dead tunes.
There will also be performances by festival founder Mark Ransom and Leif James.
Keep an eye on the Bent Blog this weekend for more updates from the festival. Here's the complete schedule.
