Dodgy Mountain Men return to Pint Shack
The Missoula "Stompgrass" outfit Dodgy Mountain Men are returning to the Pint Shack in Hood River on Tuesday, March 19. Since the release of their debut album “Stronger Than Death” last May, the band has completed two tours across the country. This promises to be a big year for the band — they’re kicking it off with a spring tour in March, with more festival dates to come. The Pint Shack, 105 Fourth St., Hood River; 541-387-7600.
Richard Wilkins at Naked Winery
The Richard Wilkins Blues Band is shaking up the Columbia River Gorge’s live music scene. Chicago jump-blues is the order of the day, with detours along the way into boogie-woogie, soulful ballads and blues-rock from the early to mid ‘60s. Catch them Saturday, March 23, from 6:30-9:30 p.m. at Naked Winery in Hood River. Naked Winery, 102 Second St., Hood River; 800-666-9303.
Miss Shevaughn & Yuma Ray
at Trillium Cafe March 25
In September 2012, Miss Shevaughn & Yuma Wray released their first full-length offering, entitled “We’re From Here.” Immediately afterwards, the Americana duo embarked on a two-month tour to support that release. Their latest digital-only album, “Live @ DC9,” was recorded during the final show of that 45-date venture last November. Critics are saying “We’re From Here” is a 15-song collection of Americana music that seamlessly jumps from sparse folk tunes to fuzzy guitar-filled garage rock. Trillium Cafe, 207 Oak St., Hood River, 541-308-0800.

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive
The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
