The Sisters Rhythm & Brews Festival — The two-day, blues-oriented music festival launched in August by Joe and Jennifer Rambo of Team Rambo Events Electrical — will team up with the Belfry for the Winter Blues Ball on Saturday. The event will include a cocktail and appetizer hour and a live auction with proceeds benefiting Heart of Oregon Corps and Sisters Habitat for Humanity (a portion of ticket sales for the festival this summer also went to these organizations). Seattle’s soul/punk hybrid Down North, which performed at the festival and has also made stops at Volcanic Theatre Pub, will headline. If that’s not enough for you, Sisters Rhythm & Brews will reveal dates for its second event in 2019.

Winter Blues Ball with Down North: 8:30 p.m. Saturday, doors open at 6 p.m.; $15 plus fees in advance; The Belfry, 302 E. Main Ave., Sisters; ­
