Out of Town 1/29-2/4 | Sound Stories & Interviews | 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.

Star Trek: Oregon Symphony

Set your phasers to geek! If this event is actually interesting to you—a top-notch symphony covering the soaring soundtrack from the final frontier—then you probably care that the specific soundtrack to be covered (and film simultaneously shown) is the 2009 J.J. Abrams' movie, with music composed by Michael Giacchino. And, yes, there is a costume contest. And, yes, you probably should consider getting a life. 7:30 pm. Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall. $35.

High Rollers vs. Break Neck Betties

Two of the Rose City Roller's teams go head-to-head in a battle of speed, force and fierceness. The High Rollers—featuring players with names like Brawn Swanson, Feliz Brutality, and Napoleon Blownapart—test their mettle against the Break Neck Betties—starring Licker-n-Split, Fonda Brawls, and Chest-Nutz. If the names didn't tip you off, this is not your 1970s roller derby. Think WWE meets hockey on wheels. There's a reason no one under 18 is allowed to sit alongside the track. 7 pm. The Hangar at Oaks Park. $14-20.

School of Rock Presents: The Best of Portland 4

Not only does the school of rock provide music education for aspiring Portland youngsters, they also keep it local. Recounting music form bands and artists that are widely considered the best the Rose City has to offer—Stephen Malkmus, Red Fang, Aan, Wild Ones, Musee Mecanique, Natasha Kmeto, Guantanamo Baywatch, 1939 Ensemble, The Shivas, Gaytheist, Summer Cannibals, The Body, Like a Villain, Tiburones, WL, Modern Kin, Bearcubbin', Lee Corey Oswald, Ripley Snell, TxE, The Stops, The Cry and Sama Dams—with actual members of those bands, these kids are some lucky little rockers. 8 pm. Wonder Ballroom. $15-18.

Super Bowl/Puppy Bowl

In a mascot fight, we are fairly sure that a meat-headed Patriot would pound a sea chicken to bits, if he could catch it. But, based on sheer proximity, our Pacific Northwest pride, and lack of knowledge of all things sportsball, we're rooting for Seattle! More likely than avidly watching every play, we will be flipping back and forth between the game and Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl! 3:30 pm. On TV everywhere.
