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.

Out of Town 1/21-1/29


thursday 22- sunday 1

Fertile Ground Festival

The 11-day celebration of theatre and dance kicks off with Women on the Scarlet Beast. Written by Caroline Miller and directed by Cassandra Schwanke, Women follows three generations of marginalized women dealing with their own inner turmoil as the world changes around them. The city-wide festival which focuses on Portland-based creators will host over 75 shows including fully staged plays, script readings, performance art, dance productions and works-in-progress. 7 pm. Post5 Theatre/City-Wide. Show $15. Pass $50. (AG)

sunday 25

The Vaselines

After many years without touring, the band is looking forward to a triumphant return. The Vaselines are punks at heart— the Glasgow garage-pop duo writes simple, earnest songs about love and love gone wrong that are brimming with energy and honesty. Bask in the glow of original members Eugene Kelly and Frances McKee’s contagious chemistry and poignant lyricism. 8 pm. Doug Fir. $18-$20. (JB)

monday 26

Andy Stott

In 2015, electronic music brings to mind fist-pumping bros, MacBook Pros and minors in neon tanktops rolling on something that they overpaid for. It doesn’t have to be this way. Andy Stott is here for people who want to get weird to some blissed-out bleep bloops without having to deal with other people’s children. Stott is the Quiet Storm to EDM’s Top 40 bleating and you can expect the crowd to reflect that. Let his chilled-out and toned-down dub sounds wash over you and just... relax. 9 pm. Neumos. $15. (AG)

wednesday 28

Kishi Bashi String Quartet, Elizabeth & The Catapult

You might not know Kishi Bashi by name, but you’ve certainly heard his music. The violinist’s past work includes stints with Summer of Love-aping Elephant 6, weirdos Of Montreal and college radio darling Regina Spektor. His new solo project is a dizzying array of vocal and violin loops. Picture Imogen Heap let loose in an opera house and you’re halfway there. As for E&TC, you might know them from their excellent 2009 album, Taller Children. They’ve released several solid albums of lush, orchestral pop and are a band not to be missed. 7 pm. Neptune Theatre. $25. (JB)
