With a steady stream of shaky news surrounding the Bend music scene, here’s some good stuff coming out of Sisters: Angeline Rhett (owner of her own popular, namesake bakery) has converted an old church into a new music venue and pub called The Belfry.
The place holds 200 to 275 people, Rhett said, and is open for weddings, workshops, classes, meetings and other events. Oh, and concerts! (Rhett is a longtime supporter of live music; Angeline’s Bakery has been a Sisters Folk Festival venue for years.)
Tonight, The Belfry will host Bend hip-hop pied piper Mosley Wotta at 7 p.m. Cover is $7.
And on Wednesday, the new stage will welcome the return of Austin, Texas, folk singer (and folk fest alum) Matt the Electrician, he of the catchy banjo-driven songs, the impressive beard, and the background as an actual electrician. An excellent catch for The Belfry’s first week!
Keep up with The Belfry’s goings-on at www.belfryevents.com or seek it out on Facebook.
Matt the Electrician; 7 p.m. Wednesday; $10; The Belfry, 302 Main Ave., Sisters; www.belfryevents.com.
