About Ignite

If you had 5 minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds?

Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to enlighten us – quickly.

Dirty Wicked Town

Brian Hinderberger



I'm an Alt Folk Rock performing artist. You'll catch me performing in Bend and around Oregon.

I wrote a song about a desperate time in my life. I was in a town that seemed to have no opportunity. I was unemployed and my social life was a spiraling mess. I blamed it all on the town of Bend, Oregon. I packed everything I could into my compact car and drove, searching for a new beginning. I drove to Arizona to stay with family and discovered that it wasn't the town it was me. I returned to Bend and have been enjoying the new beginning ever since. I would like to perform the song acoustically with images that represent my situation at the time.
