B Side Brass Band
Broken Top Bottle Shop is celebrating its fourth anniversary with a show starring the B Side Brass Band. With the band's funky/jazzy New Orleans sound, combined with the hundreds of different beers to choose from either on tap or in the bottle shop, this should be a dance party to remember. Thursday, Feb. 4, 8 p.m. Broken Top Bottle Shop, 1740 NW Pence Ln., Bend. No cover.
Bend native and member of such diverse bands as Trailer 31, Juniper & Gin and Second Son, Jason Chinchen steps out on his own for some simple one-on-one time. His songs are personal and pure, as he reaches out to find connection in this small town centered in a massive world. Thursday, Feb. 4., 6 p.m., The Lot, 745 NW Columbia St., Bend. No cover.
Leif James brings his trademark raspy growl to First Friday as he shreds some nasty blues for the wine and coffee drinking crowd. He has been a mainstay of the Central Oregon music scene for quite some time and now would be a perfect time to catch him for the unfamiliar and uninitiated. Friday, Feb. 5, 7 p.m., Dudley's Bookshop Cafe, 135 NW Minnesota Ave., Bend. No cover.
