Wednesday is here and there is plenty of live music to get you over the mid-week hump.
San Francisco based Tartufi plays the Horned Hand at 9pm. Lynne Angel, Brian Gorman and Ben Thorne form this power-pop trio that creates a unique indie sound through looping (a repeating section of sound created with digital samplers, synthesizers, sequencers, drum and tape machines). Look for a preview of songs from their yet-to-be-released album These Factory Days.
The Pickin’ and Paddlin’ concert series continues tonight with the Ashland band Eight Dollar Mountain. Have a beer, listen to some bluegrass and demo one of fifty boats (not necessarily in that order) from Tumalo Creek and Kayak. All proceeds benefit the Bend Paddle Trail Alliance, a local non-profit working to establish a navigable paddle trail that will enhance river recreation.
Flannel Bandana plays a free, all ages show at Mcmenamin’s at 7pm. Led by Moon Mountain Rambler's mandolinist Joe Schulte, Flannel Bandana performs folk, bluegrass, jazz, gypsy and Latin tunes.
Last, but certainly not least, West African Drummers & Dancers perform at The Broken Top Bottle Shop from 7-9pm. The show is free and all ages.
Take that hump day!
