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.

Where Heavy Synthesizers and Light Beer Collide

All You All has a sound familiar to the Bend area with an Arcade Fire/Jack White feel.

Music junkies of Bend fear not, All You All has new material for your local music fix. RISE UP presents an EP release show that is guaranteed to transform the PoetHouse into a killer dance party fueled by three rocking regional bands.

All You All is a band with a heavy blues sound and a simplicity that is reminiscent of Jack White. Their ambient male and female vocals, drenched in reverb, make for a smooth sound, which compliments the Bend band's familiar and relatable lyricism. Copies of Incandescence, their new EP, will be available for purchase, giving the crowd a taste of material both new and old.

No strangers to the Bend music scene, Adventure Galley is never far from the fun. Four of the six members of the synth-heavy band grew up in Bend but have since relocated to the Willamette Valley in order to pursue their musical aspirations.


From smelly Eugene basement shows to the Doug Fir, AG consistently works its crowds into a state of drunken bliss with head-bobbing jams. Think Billy Idol meets Arcade Fire meets Joy Division. Their unique pop songs contain a good dose of punk influence, full of edgy guitar riffs and hard-hitting drums that leave listeners with no option but to dance.

Spoiler alert! Adventure Galley's upcoming music video for their song Weekend Lovers is just like one of their shows - a bunch of sweaty hipsters covered in paint, dancing around like maniacs in an alternate universe. Fricken sweet. If this sounds awesome, don't miss your chance to be one of those sweaty hipsters on Saturday.

The triple bill also features local act Jacuzzi, a sexy, cantina-style four-piece that combines old-timey jazz riffs and saucy vocals with a hip-hop twist.

Given the energy level of these three bands, we're both excited and terrified by the prospect of a full floor collapse at the Poet House.
