Out of Town 6/5-6/12 | 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.

Sasquatch Brew Fest

Ninkasi Brewery hosts the 12th annual Sasquatch Brewfest in Eugene's "Fermentation District." The craft beer festival features batches brewed just for the event, as well as food, raffles, a silent auction, and a home brew competition against the backdrop of music from the Cherry Poppin' Daddies, Tatiamo, the Hank Shreve Band, and the Douglas County Daughters. Knock back some brews, take in some tunes, and stick around to find out the winner of Best in Show. Noon to 10:30 pm, Ninkasi Distribution parking lot. $10, includes commemorative glass, two taste tickets and live music.

World Naked Bike Ride

Quirky, three-week-long bike festival Pedalpalooza kicks off this weekend with a host of Portlandia-friendly events—including Morrissey and strip club-themed rides—but the cherry on top is, as always, the World Naked Bike Ride. Pro tip: Bring your phone and/or a map and pack your clothes in your pannier. The route is not a loop and the route is not announced in advance—being naked on a bike is far more thrilling than wandering lost past eastside bars in your birthday suit. 9 pm, Normandale Park. Free.

sunday 8


Portland-based rapper Illmaculate, an internationally-acclaimed artist who recently made waves with his outspoken stance on the city's alleged discrimination against hip-hop shows—he left a show at the Blue Monk in March when the cops showed up—performs at Mississippi Studios for the PDX POP NOW compilation release party with Bearcubbin, Sara Jackson Holman, Hasanna, New Move and Natasha Kmeto. His most recent album, Clay Pigeons, highlights the rapper's range and depth with tracks that span from heavy and intense to bold and anthemic. 7:30 pm, Mississippi Studio, $10-$20.


friday 6

Lily Tomlin

Lily Tomlin brings her one-woman, many-character show to Seattle for two nights. Her cast includes a rude telephone operator, a kid philosopher, a sorority sister, a homeless lady who talks to aliens, and a woman addicted to eating rubber. Tomlin's off-the-wall humor has won her a number of awards including a Tony, two Peabody Awards, and the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. She shares a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame with her wife and longtime collaborator Jane Wagner. 8 pm, the 5th Avenue Theatre, $35.50-$168.
