Source Suggests 3/11-3/18 | 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 3/11-3/18

James Otto

There's just something about a deep voice that blends perfectly into country music. James Otto has that manly, deep, yet not-quite-so-gritty voice that combines so well with modern country hooks. Perhaps best known for his 2008 country music hit, "Just Got Started Lovin' You," Otto returns to the storytelling saddle after a self-imposed hiatus with the easy-going, "Somewhere Tonight." In tune with his latest hit, forget your worries, bust out your cowboy boots and prepare for an evening of boot-scootin'. Cheyenne West opens. 8 pm, Friday, March 13. Domino Room, 51 NW Greenwood Ave. $16/adv.

Bazooka Zoo and Beach Party

With a name like Bazooka Zoo, it's easy to imagine the band blowing bubblegum bubbles the sizes of their heads while rocking out in animal costumes. Sadly, not quite the case, but Nevada's Bazooka Zoo does act as a rock-and-roll music collective, working with a variety of musicians and collaborators to create psychedelic, spacey jams. Bazooka Zoo takes influence from Led Zepplin, Jimi Hendrix, Minus the Bear and many more, which becomes apparent upon listening to its original, multidimensional songs. Portland's Beach Party joins Bazooka Zoo with its psychedelic, surf and punk rock signature blend. 9 pm. Friday, March 13. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $5.

Annual Jim Jam

This annual event organized to honor the birthday, the spirit and the music loved by Jim Witty brings together musicians to pay tribute to their friend in a campfire sing-a-long style jam (sans fire). Bring your instruments and your voices to this unplugged event that shares familiar music that can be enjoyed by all. Musicians and singers play "in the round," taking turns jamming and playing songs. Everyone is encouraged to participate. 1 pm-4 pm. Sunday, March 15. Silver Moon Brewing, 24 NW Greenwood Ave.
