Memorial Day weekend will bring a plethora of indoor and outdoor activities, races, concerts, and generally fun Bend stuff, but to get you warmed up, here's sampling of what's going on during the week:
The Source continues our Philip Seymour Hoffman retrospective with Capote. Trivia, prizes, and beer by Worthy Brewing! Wednesday, 7pm. Old Stone Church. Free.
Great music at two venues tonight!
Lisa Doll and the Rock 'n' Roll Romance. If Joan Jett grew up in Baltimore and not on the west coast, she’d have been Lisa Doll. Doll’s two-minute songs are all thwarted romance and updated bubble gum pop, delivered with a punky sneer. Her Neon Heat EP barely clocks in at 10 minutes in length, but that’s all the time she needs to get her point across. Check her out here.Wednesday, 8pm. Volcanic Theatre Pub. $5.
Major Powers and the Lo-Fi Symphony. Queen-like harmonies and hammering piano lines, (think the near-perfect interlude to “Bicycle”) mixed with ’90s pop-punk and a minor ska influence, Major Powers and the Lo-Fi Symphony are the power-trio dreams are made of. Based on their performance style and attire, we’re guessing these guys were raised in a carnival tent. Wednesday, 7pm. McMenamins Old St Francis School. No cover.
Have an excellent midweek adventure!
