• Bend’s Indoor Garden Station has moved into the old Rising Star building (35 N.W. Bond St., Bend), and they’re throwing a big party Saturday to celebrate.
The lineup includes some quality local acts, including Person People, Taarka, Tone Red, the National Theatre Project and How About No , plus food, drinks and a DJ spinning reggae here and there. The party lasts from about noon to about 8 p.m., and it’s all free!

• Singer-songwriter David Bowers has been a fixture on the local music scene for years, spreading his funky roots rock and earthy aesthetic to anyone who would listen.
But all good things must end, and Bowers is moving to the Bay Area soon. Tonight, he’ll play his final Bowers-centric show at Parrilla Grill (635 N.W. 14th St., Bend) as part of the Show Us Your Spokes series.
Bowers will play with his old partner Mark Ransom at Kebaba in a couple of weeks, but that will be more of a collaborative thing. Tonight, he promises a show that is “solo, uncooked, and spanning decades.”
Catch him while you can. He’ll get started at 7 p.m., and it’s $5 if you drive, $3 if you don’t.
• Bend’s new quasi-house-concert venue, The Studio (61532 American Loop, Unit 1, Bend), will bring a taste of Texas to the High Desert on Sunday as three local Lone State natives perform.
The lineup includes Deb Yager and Bo Reynolds , who play around town as solo acts and under the band name Little Fish, plus The Studio’s operator, Dan Chavers , who is a veteran singer-songwriter himself. The trio will tell tall tales in the round from 4 to 6 p.m. Suggested donation is $10.
