It's another big rap show at the Midtown complex as Bay Area crew The Pack takes over the Domino Room. Known for their hit cut, "Vans," The Pack ride high on a simplistic approach to hip-hop and their catchy, catchy rhymes. Also on the bill: Top Shelf, JB Envy and Benzo. 8pm, Domino Room 51 NW Greenwood Ave.
One of the most pleasant last-minute adds to the summer music calendar came when it was announced that this man, Jackie Greene, was once again returning to town. The Northern California Americana rocker has made a name for himself in the past few years, touring with the likes of Phil Lesh and Friends while also releasing a well-received record of his own in Giving up the Ghost. Still only 28 years old, Greene has been increasingly revered for his surprisingly powerful live show that he will surely bring to the Athletic Club while on a break from a tour opening for Bob Weir's Ratdog. 6:30pm. $14. Athletic Club of Bend, 61615 Athletic Club Dr.
Lost Dogs Benefit
You may have read filmmaker Vanessa Schulz's guest commentary in the last issue of the paper, but in case you didn't, here's the scoop: Schulz is a local filmmaker who's spent time in Chile making a documentary called Lost Dogs about the country's many homeless dogs. At this event, you'll see a preview of the film, along with live music, a silent auction and also help out this project. RSVP at lostdogsfilm.org/event. $25 suggested donation. 6pm 846 NW Riverside Blvd.
Ink & Metal
Stereotypes would tell us that a heavy rock music, tattoo and motorcycle event couldn't possibly lead to anything positive... but this certainly does! The 5th Annual Ink & Metal fundraiser is an all-day event benefiting Special Olympics of Central Oregon. And check out the music lineup: Final Theory, The Sofa Kings, Slut, KleverKill, The Commercial Underground, Warm Gadget, Necktie Killer and The Goddamn Gallows.10am-2am. Black Horse Saloon, 20565 Brinson Blvd.
This is it... your last chance to see Mr. David Bowers play his music before he leaves us for a new life down in the Bay Area. Just like the old days gigging at Pizza Mondo, Bowers is joined by Mark Ransom for a night of what they've described as "folkadelic mayhem." Well, David, from all of us at the Source, thanks for the music over the past few years and best of luck. We'll miss you. Free. 5pm-8pm. Kebaba, 1004 NW Newport Ave.
Second Annual Flaming Chicken Adventure Race
Do you want to mountain bike 25-plus miles through rugged single track up in the Cascades and then trek your way another 10 or so miles through buttes and all that before kayaking or canoeing across a mountain lake? You do? Well get yourself registered for the Second Annual Flaming Chicken Adventure Race, which is happening on Saturday. Go to flamingchickenar.com for info.
Matt Lewis Band
Making an encore performance at the Summer Sundays series, Utah's Matt Lewis returns with his soulful take on pop rock. We'll probably also see him do some of his fast-tongued freestyle rapping. Free. 2:30pm. Les Schwab Amphitheater, 344 SW Shevlin Hixon Dr.
Wesley Jensen & the Wildcats, The Honey Trees
This pair of Northern California indie folk rock bands stop off in town for a show that benefits "local arts empowerment." Wesley Jensen & the Wildcats are straight out of Redding, California, and as far as we can tell are pretty much the best thing to ever come out of that city. Jensen has an excellent folky voice and his band backs him up nicely with a modern take on classic folk conventions. The Honey Trees have a softly gorgeous sound to them and are led by the vocals of Becky Flip. Locals The Snag and The Autonomics open the show. $5. All ages. Doors open at 6:30pm. Rise Up International, 1560 NE 1st.
