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.

Out of Town 5/18 - 5/26: Eisley, Shawn Mullins, Lauryn Hill, Sheryl Crow

Heading to Eugene or Portland? Here are a few bands worth checking out if you're Out of Town.




friday 20


After listening to Eisley's new album, The Valley, from front to back, the Texas-based band, comprised of four DuPree siblings and one of their cousins, plays melodic indie rock that is both heartfelt and soulful. Their songs feature the beautiful vocal melodies of sisters Stacy and Sherri and their new single, "Smarter," has an addictive beat, smart lyrics and soulful vocals. 9pm, Wonder Ballroom.

saturday 21 & monday 23

Shawn Mullins

It's been said Shawn Mullins hasn't been able to live up to his hit single "Lullaby," but those people likely haven't heard his newer material on 2010's Light You Up. The album's title single has a smooth and infectiously melodic sound and may be one of the best of Mullins' career. 8pm, Aladdin Theater.


friday 20

Lauryn Hill

If there's any artist you should splurge some dough to see it's definitely Lauryn Hill. After winning five Grammies for The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, the former Fugee disappeared from the public eye and hasn't released an album since. Instead, she's been raising her five children with Rohan Marley (the fourth son of Bob). Now, 12 years after her amazing, soulful hip-hop album debuted, she's ready to share more of her beautiful voice and insightful lyrics with the world. Finally! 7pm, Cuthbert Amphitheater.

friday 20

Sheryl Crow

It seems in the last few years most news about Sheryl Crow involved her personal life, whether it was about her adopting two boys or surviving breast cancer. But she's still making music, and though it's nearly as infectious as earlier hits like "Soak Up the Sun," "All I Wanna Do" or "Everyday is a Winding Road," she's still a talented musician. And if her new stuff isn't for you, we're sure she'll be cranking out some of her biggest hits from the '90s, or so we can hope. 7pm, Hult Center.
