Out of Town 8/7-8/14 | 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.

thursday 7

Foxy Shazam is a band that is as dazzling as its name, a group of crusty, over-the-top rockers that will rip your heart out of your chest with their stunning live performances. The singer is known for eating lit cigarettes on stage and for his fits of spastic and enthralling performance, that has been compared to Meat Loaf and Queen for his stunning theatrics. Stop Light Observations and Marca Luna open. 7 pm. Hawthorne Theatre. $15-18.

monday 11- sunday 17

Burger Week

Summer, America and burgers might as well have been made for each other. This week the Portland Mercruy is embracing the meaty, cheesy, ketchupy, delicacies whole-hog (or whole-cow if you will) with a week dedicated to the best and most special burgers in Portland. Monday through Sunday there will be $5 burger specials at Ate-Oh-Ate Hawaiian Restaurant, Bar Bar, Burnside Brewing Co, Club 21, Double Barrel Tavern, Doug Fir Lounge, Foster Burger, The Hop & Vine, Mi Mero Mole, North Light, Rockin' Robyn's Sassy Burger, Spirit of 77, Widmer Brothers Brewery and Pub, White Owl Social Club. Yuuuuum. Various times and locations. $5 burgers!

saturday 16-sunday 17

Musicfest NW

After a format change from an across-the-city venue-hopping week-long event, the now more consolidated and much smaller MusicFest NW will bring nearly 20 kickass bands to Waterfront Park. HAIM, Spoon, Girl Talk, Phantogram, Run the Jewels, Future Islands, Man Man, Gardens & Villa, Thundercat, Tune-Yards, The Antlers, and Wild Ones will shake down the Rose City, marking the beginning of the end for summer festival season. All day. Tom McCall Waterfront Park. $50-85.

Britt Festival

At 28-years-old, Trombone Shorty has a resume most musicians could only dream of, including nine studio albums and gigs with Lenny Kravitz, Kid Rock, Eric Clapton, U2 and Green Day. He's also worked with fellow performers, Galactic, a funk, jazz, jam band that rocks in the same Cajun New Orleans wheelhouse as Trombone Shorty himself. 7 pm. Britt Pavilion in Jacksonville. $20-$44.
