Friday 7

The Game

RAP—The Game was signed by Dr. Dre back in 2002 and has remained a steady face in West Coast hip-hop ever since.

He's one of the few West Coast rappers to have actually lived the thug life (drugs and gangs) as opposed to just rapping about it. // 7pm. Midtown Ballroom, 51 NW Greenwood Ave., Bend. $32.

Friday 7 - Saturday 22

"In the Next Room"

THEATER—Also known as "The Vibrator Play," this show tells the story of the historical fact that doctors used to treat "hysterical" women with vibrators.

This one will be talked about. // 7:30pm & 2pm Sunday matinees. Cascades Theatrical Company, 148 NW Greenwood Ave., Bend. $13-$20.

Saturday 8

Immersion Brewing's Grand Opening Party
