As always, there’s plenty of live music in the area this week. Find our complete listing in the Going Out section. And here are a couple other things worth noting.
• Until he moved to Southern California a while back, Franchot Tone was one of the busiest guys on the local music scene, first as a producer of fine records, and then as a solo artist. On Wednesday, he’ll be back in town to fill McMenamins Old St. Francis School (700 N.W. Bond St., Bend) with some of his reggae-flavored pop-rock that’s as sweet and mellow as a coastal breeze. 7 p.m. Free.
• The existence of local jam/soul/rock/groove band Your Birthday is difficult to get a grasp on. The group — made up of a handful of longtime Bend scenesters — plays a gig every once in a while, it seems, drawing on their large pool of local fans to turn dance floors into crowded, sweaty gatherings. And then they’ll disappear for a while, no doubt scurrying off to the lab to concoct some more funky aural cocktails. They’ll resurface again tonight at Silver Moon Brewing & Taproom (24 N.W. Greenwood Ave., Bend). 9 p.m. $5.
