PUSH Skate Deck Auction

friday 25

One of the coolest community-driven projects in Bend has been the Division Street Skatepark Project, which has been slowly working toward realizing its goal of a high-end skatepark under Highway 97 at Division Street for nearly three years now. This auction, back for another year, features custom-painted skate decks by more than 50 local and regional artists that are auctioned off to benefit the skatepark. In addition to the decks, you'll also hear some music, and enjoy drinks and snacks. 6pm Old Boomtown location, 910 NW Harriman St.

The White Buffalo

friday-saturday 25-26

This Los Angeles-based singer songwriter with a voice and heart of gold continues to come back to the Silver Moon, but we're not going to complain about this two-night stand. His live show will shake the very fabric of your soul. OK, that was hyperbolic, but trust us, he's incredible in concert. Third Seven, featuring Billy of Dela Project, opens the show. $10/adv at bendticket.com, $13/door. $17/adv for both nights. 9pm. Silver Moon Brewing Co., 24 NW Greenwood Ave.

Ice Crit 2011

saturday 26

It's going to be windy, cold and snowy this weekend - which means it's perfect conditions for the Ice Crit up at Wanoga. Toss on your goofiest costume, grab your cruiser, BMX bike, roadie or whatever you've got in the garage and prepare for fun times. Even if you don't ride, head up there and watch the silliness. Registration opens at 6pm; race starts at 7pm. Wanoga Snow Park.

'80s Video Dance Attack

saturday 26

After a massively successful first outing at the Domino Room, this video-meets-DJ explosion returns for another installment, featuring all your favorite '80s tunes and their accompanying videos, brought to you by VJ Kittyvox. $5. 9pm. Domino Room, 51 NW Greenwood Ave.

Roller Disco Revival

saturday 26

Forget about 2011 for a bit and travel back to the days when dancing on roller skates was not merely acceptable, but one of the coolest things you could do on wheels. MC Mystic will be on hand spinning tunes for you to dance and skate along to. Wear your favorite disco threads... if you happen to have a "favorite" set of disco threads. $6, includes skate rental. 21 and up. 8:30pm-11:30pm Saturday, Feb 26. Central Oregon Indoor Sports Center, 20795 High Desert Ln.


saturday 26

We're a little shy on all-ages events this week, which is why we're suggesting that those who are below the bar age, as well as those who are well above it, head to the Poethouse for this benefit for Summit High's Art Club. Included in the lineup are These Four Walls, Sylas Johnson, Gabriel Juarez and Kylan Johnson, whose new music has been spinning in the Source offices with frequency these days. $5. All ages. 7am-10am. Poethouse Art, 55 NW Minnesota Ave.

Back to the Future Tour

sunday 27

We just had Bay Area hip-hop heavyweight in town last weekend for WinterFest and now it looks like all his friends are following him up here. This show features Mistah Fab, Eligh (Living Legends), Opio (hieroglyphics), Bayliens, as well as local cats Cloaked Characters, Top Shelf, DJ ATL, Gage and SJ. Another cool addition to this show are the performances by high school students involved with Cada Casa. $15/adv, $20/door. 7pm. Domino Room, 51 NW Greenwood Ave.

BendFilm Oscar Party

sunday 27

We know who we want to win Oscars, but hear the opinion of the Academy at this swanky event at the Tower Theatre, which is brought to you by BendFilm and the Tower Theatre. Includes guests being photographed by "paparazzi," swag bag and raffle contests and gourmet food and drink. $50/individuals and $75/couples. 4pm-8pm Sunday, Feb 27. Tower Theatre, 835 NW Wall St.

Sick Flicks with Ninkasi

thursday 3

Have you been out in all that snow recently? If you have, hopefully you got some of your sick, nasty tricks down on video so you can enter your "Sick Snow Flick" into this contest and showing. There are plenty of prizes to be won! Three-minute time limit on all video submissions. 8pm, The Summit Saloon & Stage, 125 NW Oregon Ave.
