Weekend happenings

Here’s our weekly look at the goings-on around Bend for the weekend, culled from the calendar. It’s also First Friday tonight, so there are a number of things going on across downtown, the Old Mill District, and Northwest Crossing that aren’t listed—just lumped together under the heading "First Friday."

The Nature of Words also continues through the weekend. There a number of readings, workshops, and signings still going on; I’ll point to their event page for details.


  • Swollen Members (hip-hop) are playing The Domino Room at 8pm (door open at 7). It’s an all-ages show costing $18 in advance and $20 at the door.
  • Alpaca brings their funk/electronic music to a show across the street at Silver Moon Brewing starting at 9pm. $7 cover.
  • Volcano Vineyards is hosting live music from The Quons in their new location at 126 NW Minnesota, across from Toomie’s.
  • After the First Friday festivities, PoetHouse Art is featuring "Art Fusion" at 9:30pm: "Featuring perfomances by five painters, five spoken-word poets and live music." $5 to get in.


  • Hoe Down for Hunger: a fundraiser to feed the hungry, taking place at the Bend Community Center starting at 11am. There’ll be a chili feed, a silent auction, and live music, all for $15.
  • Eric Tollefson plays Silver Moon at 9pm. Blues music for a $5 cover.


  • Dropkick Murphys are playing The Domino Room at 8pm (doors at 7). It’s an all-ages show with tickets costing $22 in advance, at $25 at the door.
