Source Suggests 5/3-5/13 | 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 5/3-5/13

All You All

Just cue up the single "Supernatural." Yeah, insanely talented! And local! "Innocence of Coincidence" has a garage rock sound distinctly its own, yet slightly reminiscent of The Black Keys. Blending psychedelia and garage rock, in a vein similar to The Dead Weather, All You All plays songs that inspire modest head banging and hip swaying. MoonRoom also perform. 9 pm. Thursday, May 7. Volcanic Theater Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $5.

The Mondegreens

Youthful exuberance? Tight harmonies? A blend of heartfelt folk and modern indie rock? Do we need to go on? Think Fleet Foxes and The Avett Brothers meet Radiohead. The Mondegreens, four friends with a common belief in honest music, create just that. The band blends exposingly honest lyrics with tight harmonies to create an inspiring and unabashedly indie sound. The Chico-based band's album, Kid Tell Time, plays solidly through, with a little something for everyone—at least everyone who enjoys classic folk and indie rock. It might be tough to see this up and coming band again for free. 7 pm. Saturday, May 9. Broken Top Bottle Shop, 1740 NW Pence Ln #1. No cover.

The English Beat

Remember The English Beat? The ska band that also combines reggae and new wave beats to create incredibly danceable beats formed in 1978, and hadn't release a new album since 1982's Special Beat Service. Last year, the band's lead singer, Dave Wakeling, started a PledgeMusic campaign (think KickStarter for albums) to raise funds to record the band's first new album in 32 years. Now, The English Beat returns to touring to bring its funky ska beats to a new generation of skanking rude boys and girls. Don't worry, that's not offensive; when you dance to ska music it's called skanking, not dancing. 8 pm. Wednesday, May 13. Tower Theatre, 835 NW Wall St. $37, plus $2 historical preservation fee.
