The second edition of Buffalo Gals — a showcase for women songwriters in Bend, Portland and beyond — returns to Volcanic Theatre Pub on Saturday.

Once again organized by promoter and artist Julian Ruck, this year’s event features two Bend artists: singer-songwriter and one-half of indie/electronic duo Seed Ling, Rachel Shahvar; and a collaboration between well-known local musicians Jannelle Musson and Stephanie Slade. Portland songwriters Hannah DiMo and Connie Pazienza and a group known simply as Of round out the bill. Come show support for these up-and-coming artists and neighbors.

Buffalo Gals women songwriters showcase: 8 p.m. Saturday; $10; Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Drive, Bend; volcanictheatre.com or 541-323-1881.
