The Source Suggests 7/17-7/24 | 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.

The Source Suggests

Champagne Charlie

A horror-jug band with a gravel-gargling singer, Champagne Charlie doesn't take it easy on the creepy minor keys or the malicious, moustache curling content. A Tom Waits-esque growl howling drinking man's songs, the Denver band will play opener to ska-rockers with a flair for the dramatic, The Back Alley Barbers. The lineup is a B-horror flick junkie's dream. 9 pm. Sat., July 19. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $5.

The Littlest Birds

Playing his cello more like a fiddle, sawing and plucking, David Huebner of Littlest Birds transforms folk standards into gorgeous amalgamations with his partner in twang, banjo player Sharon Martinson. The roots-forward pair reflect their home in the eastern Sierra mountains of California in the nonchalant rolling style of the band's duets. 8 pm. Tues., July 22. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $5.

Nicolas David

If you had a television in 2012, you probably caught a glimpse of this Minnesota native singing his heart out to old soul songs on "The Voice." The third place runner-up on his season, Nick "The Feelin' " Mrozinski's froggy and sultry pipes had been melting the cold in the Saint Paul music scene for years, and after the show, his open-arms personality and warm vocal arrangements became a national success. 7 pm. Wed., July 23. McMenamins, 700 NW Bond St. FREE.
