Out of Town 11/13-11/20 | 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.

HUMP!

It might be a little hard to wrap your brain around at first glance, but believe us when we say that Dan Savage’s HUMP! is good for the world. The Northwest-based, sex positive, amateur-produced porn festival is the only of its kind, inviting five-minute submissions of all types— gay, straight, fetish-loving, furry, centaur, fluffers, fire, swingers, trans, Dungeons & Dragons, and every kink in-between. Films are destroyed after showing (you can be a porn star for a day, not the rest of your life) and viewings span the breadth of human emotion, from hilarious to touching, awkward, sexy and just plain awesome. Desert your predilections and enjoy some homemade porn. Various times. Cinema 21.

First Aid Kit

After going internationally viral with a cover of the Fleet Foxes song “Tiger Mountain Peasant Song” in 2008, First Aid Kit has made three studio records and performed with some of music’s biggest names. Harmonious voices matched hand-in-glove, Swedish duo First Aid Kit mix natural musical beauty with a country twang. If modern day sirens existed, sisters Johana and Klara Söderberg would effortlessly lure sailors to the rocks. 8 pm. Roseland. $22.

Bat Boy the Musical

Halloween is over, but that doesn’t mean the freaky, horrifying storytelling ends in October! November can be terrifying, too! And hilarious! Bat Boy, the off-Broadway pop-rock musical, exploits the shock-value tabloid headline from the Weekly World News…half-boy, half-bat, all camp. How does an impish boy who was raised in a cave make his way in the world? Why are all the cattle in Bat Boys’ town inexplicably dying? Watch and find out via song. 7:30 pm. Funhouse Lounge. $20.

Chuck Palahniuk

Chuck Palahniuk doesn’t write holiday books—or, at least not the type Disney would make into a movie. Author of “Choke” and, of course, “Fight Club,” the prolific and somewhat elusive writer is on hand to sign copies of his latest, “Beautiful You,” a feverish and racy story about a mid-level marketing associate, dubbed as “the nerd’s Cinderella,” who finds herself in the middle of a sex toy scandal that makes men obsolete and women into “titillated zombies.” 2 pm. Powell’s City of Books. Free.
