In case you haven’t heard, longtime local DJ Bryan Barisone is moving out of Bend and heading to Portland and its slew of clubs and DJ opportunities.
Barisone was a resident DJ at The Grove, an original member of Person People (and latter-day guru for the group), and a master at rocking parties with a mix of hip-hop, pop and big, global beats.
But Bend’s loss is Portland’s gain, and tonight, Bend’s job is to fete the man and his sound at one of his regular haunts, Bendistillery Martini Bar. Prep for the party by taking in some ear candy at www.myspace.com/djbarisone, or go to www.bendbulletin.com/ frequency to download his “Soul’s Your Face” mix. It’s 62 minutes of blissful tonic for your ears.
DJ Barisone ; 9:30 tonight; free; Bendistillery Martini Bar, 850 N.W. Brooks St., Bend; 541-388-6868.
