So, here we go!
PUSH art show: Treefort, 114 NW Minnesota Ave.
The First Friday Art Walk has been increasingly packed with quality art for the past few months, and we're not just talking about bear-and-eagle Northwest nature scapes (although those are cool in their own right). There's been an emergence of more out-of-the-box art exhibits and one of the most interesting of tonight's walk is the PUSH show - a fundraiser for the Division Street Skatepark Project which features innovative designs from local and regional artists on the decks of skateboards.
Moon Mountain Ramblers: Silver Moon Brewing Co., 24 NW Greenwood Ave. 8pm, $7.
It's the Source Weekly's 2008 "Best Local Band" back in action at it's home venue, the Silver Moon. It's always a hootin', hollerin' time when these guys and gal fire it up on their home turf. Also, there's word that they have a CD coming out soon, so swing by and see if you can get a preview of some of those tracks.
Lava City Roller Dolls: Smokin' Ashes vs. Prima Donnas: Central Oregon Indoor Sports Center, 20795 High Desert Ln. 5pm.,
The hometown Smokin' Ashes go head to head with Olympia's Prima Donnas in a knock-down-drag-out roller derby match. But hey, it's kid friendly!
Sagebrush Rock: Scoots Bar and Grill 175 N Larch St. Sisters
These guys are quintessential Central Oregon rockers with a long standing reputation for dead on covers and head bobbing originals. Bend is really quiet on this night, so head out to Sisters and get Sagebrush Rocked. Wow, that was a pretty stupid pun.
