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 7/2-7/10




wednesday 9

Slightly Stoopid with Stephen Marley

Frequently performing reggae and laid back hip-hop, Slightly Stoopid is known for its commitment to live performances and an extensive tour schedule. The unique sound of the Ocean Beach, Calif., based group, infused with dashes of brightly flavored ska and robust psychedelic rock, is said to sound best live in the company of the band's positive energy crowds. 7pm. Cuthbert Amphitheater. $37.50-$40.


sunday 6

Ms. Lauryn Hill

Lauryn Hill, at a young age, was suspected to have great talent by her family and friends. After being exposed to an extensive variety of musical styles, Hill would develop her own trans-genre musical style. Hill then went on to be the sole female member of The Fugees, whose record sales would make them the second biggest selling R&B act worldwide since Michael Jackson. She then embarked on a solo career that includes her critically acclaimed album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill that earned her a record-breaking five Grammy Awards. 7pm. Crystal Ballroom. $55-$60.


friday 4

Robert Francis & The Night Tide

Multi-instrumentalist, Americana singer-songwriter Robert Francis' "bright, gravelly baritone" has increased his popularity in the folk/indie genre. His debut album One By One was released in August 2007 and is marked by its "Emotional darkness and musicality." Francis' most recent album is set to debut just a day before the live show, meaning the audience will get exclusive fresh access to his new tracks. 8pm doors. Mississippi Studios. $5. 21 and over.


thursday 3

The Notwist

Brothers Markus and Micha founded a band in the German Countryside back in 1989 whose music is as romantic as it is robotic. After over two-decades of growth, development, and collaboration with their friend Martin they began to develop their catchy tunes whose electronic beats match the fluttering heartbeats of their audiences. 7:30 doors. Wonder Ballroom. $18-$20. 21 and over.
