For the latest in Bend Studios' "An Intimate Evening With" series, it just doesn't get more intimate than Will Johnson. As powerful as his band Centro-matic is live, there's something to be said for seeing main man Johnson stripped to the bare-bones birthing ground for his songs, including those of last year's acclaimed solo effort Vultures Await and haunting debut Murder of Tides. Johnson works in more pedal-driven textures these days, and he might be accompanied by Centro's Scott Danbom on fiddle and keys. Either way, sitting barefoot on yoga mats in front of Johnson's raspy, drawn-out musical poetry and a guitar is guaranteed to give goose bumps. Show up by 8 p.m.
