Our Picks for 8/25-9/2: The Dirty Words' Farewell Bend Show, Bob Dylan and John Mellencamp, Art in the High Desert, Clink Black, and more



Bonnie & Clyde
ends sunday 29
If you read last week's paper, you learned from Suzanne Burns' review that Bonnie and Clyde is one of the stronger musicals to hit Bend in some time. The two-person play is closing this weekend, so if you haven't had a chance to see Jessica and Jeremy Bernard depict the infamous couple, jump on it. Plays Wednesday-Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 6pm. $20/regular, $17/students, seniors, groups. Thursday, Aug 26. Bend Performing Arts Center, 1155 SW Division St.

The Dirty Words'

Bend Farewell Show

thursday 26

If you're a local music fan and or someone with ears who goes out to bars, you've probably heard the Dirty Words over the past two years. Well, now one of Bend's wildest indie rock bands is moving off to Portland to take a stab at that rock market, but not before giving us one last show at the Silver Moon. Faces will be melted. $3-5. 9pm. Silver Moon Brewing Co., 24 NW Greenwood Ave.

Bob Dylan And His Band

Les Schwab Amphitheater, 344 SW Shevlin Hixon Dr.

Art in the High Desert
friday-sunday 27-29
The summer's biggest art event is finally here and features more than 100 artists from all over the country and beyond.

Voyager Spacecraft

saturday 28
In case you didn't know, the Voyager 1 is one of the coolest things we as a human race have ever done. The unmanned space probe is now the farthest man-made object in space (10 billion miles from the sun and still moving) and has done all sorts of cool things along the way, like photograph Jupiter and carry the "Golden Record," an album from which extraterrestrials can learn more about Earth and it's inhabitants. You'll learn more about the Voyager mission at this program, which includes sky viewing from the observatory. 9-11pm. $9/adults, $6/children. 8pm-9pm Saturday, Aug 28. Sunriver Nature Center & Observatory, 57245 River Rd.

Alley Jam: Larry and His Flask, Mosley Wotta and more
saturday 28
We're not sure if downtown Bend is ready for this event, but they should be. It's going to be a radically fun one because two of Bend's biggest acts are headlining this show that's taking place in Tin Pan Alley between Franklin and Minnesota Avenues and benefits the American Cancer Society and the Division Street Skatepark Project. In addition to the wildass punky roots music of Larry and His Flask is live hip-hop from Mosley Wotta, ska-punk from Necktie Killer and more rap from Mindscape. It's all ages, entry is free and food/drink proceeds go to the charities. There's also live art exhibits hosted by Reclamation of the Arts and Music Project, and a skateboarding jam. Presented by Bo Asian Bistro. Free. 3pm-10pm.

Clint Black and
Luke Bryan

sunday 29

The LSA series continues with another installment of big hat country, this time featuring 1990s mega star, Clint Black. Hey, did anyone see him perform at the ESPY Awards? It was pretty cool. Anyway, he's playing this show along side up-and-coming country crooner (and sexy looker, to boot), Luke Bryan. It's almost like that Crazy Heart movie, dontcha think? All ages. $59/rsvd and $36/GA in advance. $63/rsvd and $38/GA day of show. 6:30pm. Les Schwab Amphitheater, 344 SW Shevlin Hixon Dr.
