Big Head Todd & The Monsters are having an eventful summer.
They’re currently on a tour of arenas and amphitheaters with big names like Barenaked Ladies, Blues Traveler and Cracker, and they’ll wrap the season by hosting their own shindig; the inaugural Ride Festival, Aug. 25-26 in Colorado, will feature acts like Ben Harper and Los Lobos.
But on Wednesday, frontman Todd Park Mohr will bring his Monsters to the cozy lawn of the Athletic Club of Bend for a slightly more intimate show. Which, no doubt, will be just fine with locals who’d just as soon have space to groove along with the band’s congenial blues-rock jams.
Big Head Todd & The Monsters, with Elliot; 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, doors open 6 p.m.; $26, available in advance at Newport Market (541-382-3940) in Bend; Athletic Club of Bend, 61615 Athletic Club Drive; www.c3events.com.
