Out of Town: Cash'd Out, Robert Earl Keen | 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.

Out of Town: Cash'd Out, Robert Earl Keen


friday 7 - sunday 9

Ninth Annual Ragtime & Vintage Music Festival

Things are going to get old-timey in the rural town of Shaniko. Northeast of Madras on U.S. Hwy 97 lies Shaniko, population: 26. Friday night the festival begins with a silent screening of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, shown at the Shaniko Schoolhouse and with live piano accompaniment. On Saturday, the celebration moves north to Moro where there will be ragtime music in the streets from noon until 11pm. Sunday continues with more forgotten piano tunes drifting out from behind the saloon doors. It doesn't get more old-timey that this. Begins at noon, Shaniko Schoolhouse.

Robert Earl Keen

Enjoy a cold beer, a strong drink and a trip back in time with the music from Texas singer and songwriter Robert Earl Keen. Keen will wash away you present-day worries and woes with songs from the hill country about guns, bandits, rodeos and beautiful senoritas. He's also a darn fine storyteller. In his college years, Keen lived with Lyle Lovett and the two spent many hours writing tunes and telling lies. You can hear about those days in "Front Porch Song." 9:15pm, Aladdin Theater.

Cash'd Out

With the Man in Black gone from this world (R.I.P. Johnny Cash) Cash'd Out is as close as you're likely to get to experiencing the real thing. Cash'd Out looks the part too, with slicked-back hair, skinny ties and whiskey bottle close by. You may have seen them in Bend before, but if you're in Portland over the weekend this tribute band is worth a listen. Plus, Dante's serves pizza by the slice until late, so you can drink all the bourbon you want. 9pm, Dante's.


friday 7 - saturday 8

Eugene Ukulele Festival

This two-day festival offers a spot for the oft-overlooked instrument, the ukulele. Uketoberfest offers classes for all abilities while teaching all the major techniques from strumming to picking. Jam sessions and an open mic round out the afternoon sessions with shows from renowned ukulele masters in the evening. A ukulele jam kicks off the event on Thursday night at Territorial Vineyards. See uketoberfest.com a complete schedule. Starts 8am, Faith Center.
