Friday: BendFilm Presents: The Dawn Wall
Rock climbing is pretty crazy when you think about it, and after watching "The Dawn Wall" you'll know what I mean. The movie details the expedition made by Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson as they try to climb The Dawn Wall, a 3,000 foot rock face in Yosemite. It took them six years to map out the best routes to take, and the film will take us right along on that journey.

Fri., Jan. 11
Tower Theater
835 NW Wall St., Bend

Saturday: Grounded
  • Submitted
Head to the 2nd Street Theater and catch a great performance of "Grounded." The story is centered around a fighter pilot who has to end her career short due to an unexpected pregnancy. You might think her line of work would change, but it actually only gets a little more intense. Instead of flying a jet, she begins to pilot drones that help hunt down terrorists... If you ask me, that's all the action and drama you'll need for a Saturday night!

Sat., Jan. 12
2nd Street Theater
220 NE Lafayette Ave., Bend
$19/adults, $16/kids+seniors, $13/military discount

Sunday: Howlin' Rain w/Garcia Peoples
Garcia Peoples' debut album, "Cosmic Cash," is out now. - MARIANO FRISOLI DE OLIVEIRA
  • Mariano Frisoli de Oliveira
  • Garcia Peoples' debut album, "Cosmic Cash," is out now.
This mashup of rock and blues is going to be almost too rad! San Francisco-based Howlin' Rain are signed to Columbia Records under mastermind Rick Rubin and bring a very psychedelic feel to their sound—so things might get weird. Then newcomers Garcia Peoples are coming hot off of their debut album "Cosmic Cash." It's seriously a great night for some tunes!

Sun., Jan. 13
Volcanic Theatre Pub
70 SW Century Dr., Bend
