Source Suggests 6/24-7/1 | 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.

This Frontier Needs Heroes

and Paula Boggs Band

Singer-songwriter Paula Boggs of the Paula Boggs Band had an interesting career trajectory. Before deciding to pursue music, she scaled the heights of the military and then corporate world. In the Army, Boggs was an Airborne Officer, served on the White House Iran Contra task force and, most recently, was top legal counsel for Starbucks. The singer now ventures toward her true calling as a "soulgrass" musician with her six-piece band. The band incorporates jazz, world music, rock, soul, folk, and bluegrass. They join This Frontier Needs Heroes, a duo specializing in heartfelt Americana. 9 pm. Thursday, June 25. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $5.

Kool Stuff Katie and Happy Otherwise

Though both Portland-based indie rock bands, Kool Stuff Katie and Happy Otherwise have completely different sounds. Kool Stuff Katie doesn't include a band member named Katie, instead the garage-rock duo is made up of Shane Blem and Saren Oliver. The duo met after Blem placed an ad on Craigslist seeking a performer with certain skills. After spending time as a trio, Oliver learned drums and took over the kit. Both Blem and Oliver contribute vocals to the energetic rock 'n' roll sound, with slight tinges of pop catchiness. 10 pm. Saturday, June 27. Astro Lounge, 939 NW Bond St. $5.

The Harmaleighs

This Nashville duo is made up of Haley Grant on guitar and Kaylee Jasperson on bass. Both women sing vocals, which harmonize together beautifully. The two bonded over a mutual love of folk/Americana music and began creating their own in 2013. Currently, they're touring the country in support of their album, Pretty Picture, Dirty Brush. Expect sweet melodies, original songs, popular covers and interesting stage banter. The girls' vocals blend together to create soulful and colorful Americana music. 7-9 pm. Tuesday, June 30. GoodLife Brewing, 70 SW Century Dr.
