Thursday 11 - Thursday 18
Sunriver Music Festival
CLASSICAL MUSIC FESTIVAL—The Sunriver Music Festival isn't just a series of classical music performances; it's also an educational experience. Adam del Monte will offer a workshop for intermediate and advanced guitarists and William Wolfram will teach a piano masterclass for advanced students. Not many festivals combine education and entertainment. // For times, dates and locations of concerts visit sunrivermusic.org.
Michael Franti & Spearhead
SAY HEY—Summer is all about love, life and happiness. A great way to celebrate summer is with music that matches the season. Michael Franti's song, "Say Hey," is one of the best representations of what summertime should sound like, and summer wouldn't be the same without Franti visiting Bend. // 6:30pm, Les Schwab Amphitheater, 344 SW Shelvin Hixon Dr., Bend. $42.
REGGAE— Sister Carol has been making some of the most spiritual, political and important reggae music for three decades. She expands social consciousness wherever she goes, and the message she brings is one of diversity, peace and the realization that we are all one on this Earth. Seeing her in Bend is a blessing. // 8pm, The Capitol, 190 NW Oregon Ave., Bend. $20.
Devon Allman Band
MUNCH & MUSIC—This Bend classic summer concert series in Drake Park comes to an end with the Devon Allman Band. Devon, Greg Allman's son plays a delightful mix of country and rock, just enough to get your hips swinging and your mind thinking. It's the kind of music that stays with you throughout the day and into the night. // 5:30-9pm, Drake Park, 777 NW Riverside Blvd., Bend. No cover.
Ages and Ages
BLOCK PARTY—The fourth installment of the Brooks Street Block Party continues with Portland-based band Ages and Ages. Lead singer Rob Oberdorfer grew up in Bend and is returning to bring listeners an evening of sing-along, stomp-along and clap-along music that you can't help but dance to. // 6:30pm, Crow's Feet Commons, 875 NW Brooks St., Bend. No cover.
Huey Lewis and the News
MUSIC—While Mr. Lewis and the News contributed memorable songs such as "Hip to Be Square," "Heart of Rock and Roll" and "Workin' for a Livin,'" it's really the "Back to the Future" soundtrack that will make them immortal. "The Power of Love" and "Back in Time" are the perfect companions to the adventures of you and Marty McFly. // 6:30pm, Les Schwab Amphitheater, 344 SW Shevlin Hixon Dr., Bend. $44-$79.
Friday 12 – Sunday 14
CARS—Vintage car enthusiasts rejoice; the 2016 Flashback Cruz is back, featuring vehicles from 1979 and earlier. The weekend includes downtown parades and shows, a 7-ft. trophy for Best of Show, fun and games, and a street dance party with JP and the Soulsearchers. // Locations and times vary each day, with most events happening at Drake Park in Bend. Check the website for info: centraloregonclassicchevyclub.com. Free to spectators.
Christmas Valley Music Festival
MUSIC—This community music festival brings together food, fun, dancing and music for a festive Saturday in Christmas Valley. Headliners include Loose Change, DC Malone & The Jones, and Ma Fondue. Plus, proceeds from the event provide food and scholarships for children in North Lake County. // Noon-10pm, RE Flowerree Memorial Park, Christmas Valley Highway, Christmas Valley. $5+ donation.
FILM EVENT—This special event combines a screening of Buster Keaton's 1926 silent comedic masterpiece with a live score conducted and performed by master composer Mark Orton. Just getting to see this film in the comfort of the Tower Theatre is exciting, but to experience a live performance of a brand new score will be breathtaking. // 8pm, Tower Theatre, 835 NW Wall St., Bend. $15-$25.
The Outer Vibe
ADVENTURE—The Outer Vibe describes itself as a musical adventure and its sound as, "Clint Eastwood drinking a piña colada at a Dick Dale concert." For those confused by that description, think feel good music with similar pop/dance-centric tunes as Foster The People or Lake Street Dive. Guaranteed to be a good way to celebrate Hump Day. // 9pm. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr., Bend. $8 adv., $10 door.
