Salem Area

Possum Fest

Possum Fest is a two day farewell event for the Possum House. Friday is the 7th part of the Salem Songwriter Series. Musicians like Andy Alvarez from Sadgasm and Adieu Caribou, and Noah Hall from Whiskey Priest and Class Picture Project, among others, will be there Friday night for an "acoustic night around the campfire!" Saturday will be a music filled day with bands like Impulse Control, Major Hex, Vortex Remover, Kalaloch and several others. Come on down and help say goodbye to the Possum House and celebrate 7 years of "awesome possum-ness."

The Blood Moon Festival is a collection of local artists striving to create something fresh. They describe the event as "an artist-first, artist-curated, and artist-run music festival." The lineup includes bands like Sleep Millennium, Symmetry/Symmetry, Acting Captain, THMPR, and more!

So if you find yourself in Salem looking for a great indie lineup head over to the Blood Moon Festival.

Beach, Bacon, and Brews

Though the beach isn't super close to Salem, sometimes it is nice to get out and change things up a bit. Head on down to the Chinook Winds Casino Resort for a charity fundraiser featuring Sunnyvalley Bacon as the exclusive bacon sponsor and Bigfoot Beverages as the brewer sponsor. Come on, how can you get better than altruism, bacon and beer? With over 20 microbrews and ciders you will have plenty of beer/bacon pairing to indulge in.

Heavy Tuesdays!

So the weekend is over, it is now Tuesday and you just haven't had enough of the music, what do you do? You head down to the Tonic Lounge for Heavy Tuesdays! As if that isn't already great news, they have TWO BEERS FOR FOUR DOLLARS! It is only $2 to see the two bands, which for those of us that are cheap, is a pretty phenomenal deal. The bands are Skulk, a band that sounds like Rob Zombie's younger sibling (not a bad thing), and Mystrionics, which could be described as a mellower Queen's of The Stone Age, kinda. But both bands are quite unique. If you are in the area Heavy Tuesdays should be on your to-do list.

Eugene Area

Jim Page

Jim Page is a Seattle based American Folk Singer-Songwriter who's politically driven music has been creating conversation since the 70's. With songs like "Hiroshima Nagasaki Russian Roulette" and an impressive resume of activism including convincing the Seattle City Council to stop requiring street performers to obtain a permit to play, Jim Page is kind of a bad ass. Join Mr. Page at the Oregon County Fair in Veneta this Sunday!

Sun 15th - Show starts at 1:30pm

Oregon Country Fair

Pendleton Area

Pendleton Whisky Music Fest

The Annual Pendleton Whisky Music Fest is here again and this year they have some pretty big names playing. For you country lovers, Blake Shelton will be there and that is probably a big deal for people. Maybe you are more of a hiphop fan? Well how could you be disappointed when Pitbull is going to be there, and he will expect you all to drop it to the floor. You'll also get to drink whiskey which is always a good reason to get out of the house.

Sat 14th - 1pm to 11pm

1205 SW Court Ave Pendleton, Oregon 97801
