TOMMY CASTRO AND THE PAIN KILLERS AT THE BELFRY
7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
$20 online $25 DOS
Night after night, Tommy Castro, a fierce and fiery road warrior, fervently delivers his driving, blues-soaked, soul-baring music to fans all over the world. The road is where he honed his guitar playing to a razor’s edge. It’s where he learned how to captivate an audience with his intensely passionate vocals and his memorable songs, licks and grooves. It’s where he learned to turn his band into a dynamic, high-performance engine, able to bring down the house with a soulful ballad and then bring fans to their feet with a blistering blues rocker. In the words of Blues Revue, “Tommy Castro can do no wrong.”
Over the course of his four-decade career, Castro has played thousands of shows to hundreds of thousands of fans, packing dance floors, always leaving them screaming for more. He has released 14 albums filled with original blues, soul and West Coast rock, each one standing alone. Hailing from the San Francisco area, Castro, along with his band, The Painkillers (currently featuring bassist Randy McDonald, keyboardist Michael Emerson and drummer Bowen Brown), play music that is guaranteed to fire up fans and leave critics searching for new words of praise. Billboard says the band plays “irresistible contemporary blues-rock” with “street-level grit and soul.” Now, with Method To My Madness, the group turns the intensity up another notch.
Doors open at 6pm

2nd Street Theater
Next To Normal, a “Feel Everything” Musical Drama at 2nd Street Theater
Stage Right Productions and 2nd Street Theater is proud to present the Tony award winning musical that deals with mental illness and its effects on family, Next to Normal. Written by Tom Kitt, directed by Brad Ruder with musical direction by Meagan Iverson, Next to Normal will be presented February 12-27, 2016. Performances are Thursday through Saturday 7:30 pm, Sunday matinees at 3pm and there will be an Opening Night Champagne Reception on Friday Feb 12 from 6:30-7:30pm.
Dad’s an architect; Mom rushes to pack lunches and pour cereal; their daughter and son are bright, wise-cracking teens, appearing to be a typical American family. And yet their lives are anything but normal, because the mother has been battling manic depression for years. Next To Normal takes audiences into the minds and hearts of each character, presenting their family’s story with love, sympathy and heart…oh, and bring tissues.
“Yes, this show won Tony Awards. Yes, this show won a Pulitzer Prize,” says director, Brad Ruder, “but, most importantly, it won my spirit. From the surging score and the complexities of the characters, to the realities of life’s craziness, Next to Normal is a production like no other.”
The show features some of Central Oregon’s top talent, including Ryan Klontz, John Kish, Steven Livingston, David DaCosta, Katie Bullock, and newcomer Cait Ford.

COCC HOSTS FILM: “THE CHEROKEE WORD FOR WATER”
3:00 pm – 4:30 pm
Community Room Madras COCC Campus
To honor the work of nonviolent social justice advocates during the Season of Nonviolence, Central Oregon Community College is hosting a showing of the film “The Cherokee Word for Water” on Monday, from 3 to 4:30 p.m. on Feb. 22, in the Community Room on the Madras Campus. It will also be shown from 3 to 5 p.m on Wednesday, Feb. 24, in Hitchcock Auditorium, Pioneer Building on the Bend Campus.
“The Cherokee Word for Water” tells the story of the work that led Wilma Mankiller to become the first modern female chief of the Cherokee Nation. Based on the true story of the Bell Waterline Project, this film depicts the struggle of a rural Cherokee community in the early 1980s to bring running water to their families by using the traditional concept of ‘gadugi’—working together to solve a problem.
Since 2009 COCC has been recognizing the international commemoration of the Season of Nonviolence that honors the work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi. COCC also honors the work of Cesar Chavez and Chief Wilma Mankiller during this time. The annual series of events highlights the work being done globally as well as locally to foster equity and justice for everyone. The aim is to inspire campus and community participants to become involved in their communities to make Central Oregon a safe and respectful place to live, work and learn.
The event is free and open to the public. For information, call 541-318-3782.
