Source Suggests 2/25-3/4 | 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.

Source Suggests 2/25-3/4

Jive Coulis

As part of Broken Top Bottle Shop's Brews & Band series, which features free live music in the company of many fine brews, Jive Coulis brings its classic rock and roll from southern Oregon to Bend. This is the type of funky, rock and blues jams that sounds pulled from Almost Famous. Guitar shredding, bluesy rock to get feet moving, booties shaking, heads banging and your beer sudsy. 7 pm. Thu., Feb. 26. Broken Top Bottle Shop & Ale Café, 1740 NW Pence Ln, Ste 1. Free.

The Sweatband

Bust out the terry cloth headbands and wear something you don't mind getting sweaty. The Sweatband delivers on what its name promises—a band whose funky jams make dancers out of even the most shy wallflowers. Dancing all night to this homegrown funk band guarantees sweat, the good kind; the kind that causes a person's hair to stick all over their face and neck. The kind where a break in songs results in a frantic run to the water fountain to rehydrate before diving back in and dancing for the rest of the night. Check out the band's new arrangement, complete with horn section. 9 pm. Sat., Feb. 28. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $5.

Ultra Violent Rays

L.A.'s Ultra Violent Rays is unlike most bands coming through Central Oregon—darkwave, electronic goth pop that is dancey, but not quite in the same way as a funk or bluegrass band. The duo consists of vocalist and bassist Cooper Gillespie, and drummer/sequencer Greg Gordon. Think a modern-day bundle of Siouxsie and the Banshees, Joy Division and Portishead. Female fronted, spacey sounding electro pop that's dark, sexy and danceable? Yes, please! Our indie rock wishes have been granted. 9 pm. Sat., Feb. 28. Astro Lounge, 939 NW Bond St. $10.
