Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Pinback Presents: The Rob Show

thursday 8

You probably are wondering why the name of this show has changed over the past week. Well, here's what happened: This was supposed to be a show featuring the two Pinback collaborators, Rob Crow and Zach Smith, who were going to play the band's songs with programmed tracks behind them. But last week Smith had to leave the tour due to a family emergency. Crow, however, wasn't about to disappoint the band's many fans and has soldiered on with some extra backing tracks added to the mix. Sure, this is kind of a bummer, but knowing Rob Crow, he'll still make a huge mass of sound on his own. Little White Teeth open. All ages. $14/adv, $17/door. Tickets at Bendticket.com, Ranch Records, TicketsWest.com (800-992-8499). 9pm. Domino Room, 51 NW Greenwood Ave.

Diane Hammond

friday 9

This local author has a new book out called Seeing Stars, which is the tale of a girl who heads to Hollywood with her mother with the hope of becoming a big-time child actress. Hammond reads from and signs the new book at this event in Sisters. 4pm Friday, Jul 9. Paulina Springs Books, 252 W Hood Ave, Sisters.

Bend Summer Fest

saturday-sunday 10-11

The annual gathering of music, food and crafts returns to downtown Bend and features an impressively strong music lineup including The Samples, Aphrodesia, Person People and others on Saturday and the local-girl-turned-mega star Sara Jackson-Holman plays the main stage on Sunday (in case you missed her show at the Oxford on Monday night). Downtown Bend. See c3events.com for more.

Mingo Fishtrap

sunday 11

One of the highlights of the summer music schedule is the annual visit from this funkalicious Austin, Texas, band, who've been known to stop off at the Summer Sundays series, much to the liking of their many local fans. 2:30pm-4:30pm. Les Schwab Amphitheater, 344 SW Shevlin Hixon Dr.

Pacific Northwest Polo Invitational

sunday 11

Do you know what polo is? No, not water polo and not the cologne, we're talking about the game in which people on horses hit a ball across an impossibly huge field of grass. And yes, it is as cool as it sounds. The event, one of the only of its kind you'll find in the state, is a benefit for Big Brothers, Big Sisters, Healing Reins, Sisters' Folk Festival and Equine Outreach. $10/person. Kids under 10 free. 2pm Sunday, Jul 11. Camp Fraley Ranch, 60580 Gosney Rd.

Abbey Road Live

tuesday 13

Unless you're a jerk or you hate things that are excellent, you like the Beatles. And if that's the case you should check out this Beatles cover band who will be playing on the awesome outdoor stage in the back of Angeline's Bakery in Sisters. $5-$10. 7pm. Angeline's Bakery, 121 West Main Avenue.

Colin Hay

wednesday 14

Check out the Sound section for more on this performance by the Men At Work front man who turned into a popular solo songwriter in recent years. 8pm. Athletic Club of Bend, 61615 Athletic Club Drive.

The Hump Day Hash: The Mosley Wotta Band

wednesday 14

If you're curious about the new location of the Bend Roots Revival, you can get a taste of this event at the newly named Century Center (next to the West Bend Tennis Center) where Mosley Wotta - who just won the Last Band Standing competition! - will be playing with his band. Kylan Johnson opens. And check out the food lineup El Sancho, Soupcon and Spork. Libation art by Volcano Vineyards and Plum. Free. 6pm. Century Center, 1355 SW Century Drive.

The Aggrolites

thursday 15

It's great to see this LA-based punk-esque reggae act come back to Bend. If you're a fan of the genre, you need to see this band - they're perhaps one of the most original bands of their genre and play a hell of a live show. $12/adv, $15/door. Tickets at Bendticket.com, Ranch Records, TicketsWest.com (800-992-8499). 9pm. Domino Room, 51 NW Greenwood Ave.

David Clemmer and the Stoics

thursday 15

If you like the Dirty Words, you'll really like this new project by the band's front man, David Clemmer. The sound is much poppier than the Dirty Words with some Colin-Meloy-like lyrics brought into the mix and trust us, you'll dig the songs, which are some of the strongest you're likely to hear by a Bend local. Free, all ages. 7pm. McMenamins Old St. Francis School, 700 NW Bond St.

The Poison Control Center

thursday 15

Proof that good music can come from Iowa, The Poison Control Center is a punchy power pop outfit in the middle of a massive U.S. tour and were nice enough to include Bend on their route. The band is uniquely danceable and have the sort of smile-inducing quality that makes them even more appealing. 8pm. Mountain's Edge Bar, 61131 S. Highway 97.
