In the heyday of the MadHappy Lounge — Reggie Martinez’s downtown-Bend cocktail bar, art hub and music venue that closed in 2011 — you could expect live music all night (most nights) by a gang of eclectic musicians, with a general focus on beats and rhymes.
That vibe will return Thursday to the Astro Lounge, where Martinez and a host of his buddies — the MadHappy Allstars, he’s calling them — will gather for an evening of musical merrymaking.
The poster has a ton of names on it: MCs Cast-Iron, Northorn Lights, Gainon the Illyrikill and JDubb, plus DJs/producers Prajekt, A-Bomb, Kitchen Blake and Theclectick. Also planned: A set by L.A. hip-hop duo No Sky Project, live painting and more.
No Sky Project and more; 9 p.m. Thursday; free; Astro Lounge, 939 N.W. Bond St., Bend; www.astroloungebend.com.
