Our Picks for the Week 7/30-8/6 | Picks | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

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.

Hackensaw Boys
thursday 30
The last time these pickin' and grinnin' fools (and we mean "fools" in the kindest way possible) came through town, it was a bluegrass-fueled night of fun. This time, the Charlottesville, Virginia-based band is paying us a visit on their way over to Pickathon in Portland. 9pm. $8. Silver Moon Brewing Co. 24 NW Greenwood Ave.


72-Hour Shoot Out
thursday 30

Hmm, what can you do with three days? If you said, "Make a movie" you're probably already a contestant in BendFilm's 72-Hour Shoot Out. This contest gives contestants only 72 hours to write, film and edit their films while competing against fellow local moviemakers. Check out this event where you can see the final products in McMenamins always-cozy theater. 6pm Thursday, Jul 30. McMenamins Old St. Francis Theater, 700 NW Bond St. $3.


Empty Space Orchestra
friday 31
You may have seen Empty Space a few times in the past month, but now is your chance to see some ESO in the "friscalating dusklight" at the Show Us Your Spokes concert series. 6:30pm. Parrilla Grill, 635 NW 14th St. $3.
