Picks 4/27-5/4



Thursday 28 - Saturday 14

"12 Angry Jurors"

THEATER—"12 Angry Jurors" takes the scripts from "12 Angry Men" and "12 Angry Women" and combines them into a more balanced view of very topical ideas. When a young black man goes on trial for his life, the jury deliberation sheds light on race, privilege, sexism and everything in between. 2 p.m. matinee, 7:30 p.m. evening, Cascades Theatrical Company, 148 NW Greenwood Ave., Bend. $13-$20.

Friday 29

Bend Brewing Anniversary

BLOCKS & BREWS—Bend Brewing Company is turning 21! All ages are welcome to attend the epic party that will shut down Brooks Street. There will be live music from Elektrapod, Moon Mountain Ramblers and Broken Down Guitars, plus, 21 different styles of BBC beer to celebrate its 21 years in business. 4 p.m., Bend Brewing Company, 1019 NW Brooks St., Bend. No cover.

Friday 29 - Saturday 30

"American Buffalo"

NICKEL & DIMED—David Mamet's aggressive and to-the-point dialogue is only equal to his storytelling abilities that reach beyond the surface with his cleverly integrated commentary on social decline. This play, about the burglary of a buffalo nickel, is as fast-paced, as it is witty. The Source, along with Zolo media, will feature this play on an upcoming ABC/CBS local culture segment. 7:30 p.m., Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr., Bend. $12 adv., $15 door.

Friday 29 - Saturday 30

Bend Follies

VARIETY SHOW—Central Oregon's most popular roast that pokes fun at all of the things that make Bend so quintessentially Bend-y. Expect a night of irreverent and hilarious humor focused on jokes that only a true Central Oregonian would understand. A very fun night of comedy. 7:30 p.m., Tower Theatre, 835 NW Wall St., Bend. $18-$48.

Saturday 30

Pigs on the Wing

PINK FLOYD TRIBUTE—Since Roger Waters and David Gilmour might never get along again in this lifetime, watching an excellent group of musicians playing the best music of the '60s and '70s might be the way to go. As long as they avoid most of "The Division Bell," everything will be OK. 8 p.m., The Belfry, 302 E Main St., Sisters. $13 adv., $15 door.

Saturday 30

Independent Bookstore Day

SHOP LOCAL—Dudley's will host a day-long celebration of indie bookstores with free mimosas and sangria, limited edition books, art, raffles, sales and more. Catch hiking enthusiast and author Bill Sullivan from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. or take part in a writing workshop with Amber Keyser at 2 p.m. and a poetry slam beginning at 6:15 p.m. It's a great day to support local. Begins 9 a.m. Dudley's Bookshop Cafe, 135 NW Minnesota Ave., Bend. Free.

Saturday 30

Broken Down Guitars

FENDER BENDER—Album release parties are always a good time and Broken Down Guitars' won't be any different. It's the second album this diverse-style band has created. It's a bit funky, jazzy, country and basically really is "Everything You Need," which is also the name of the album. 9:30 p.m., The Capitol, 190 NW Oregon Ave., Bend. No cover.

Saturday 30

Winning Libation Celebration
