THIS WEEKEND IN MUSIC: Dancing! Singing! Pigging!

Posted By on Fri, Sep 3, 2010 at 3:44 PM

Your musical weekend, broken down by what sort of fun you might be looking for:

FUN = FREE
Pigout, definitely. Not the best lineup we've ever seen on the long-running Labor Day weekend festival, but not shabby either. Your best bets? Tonight, catch local Kathleen Cavender and the best thing to come outta Central Washington since Mark Lanegan: Star Anna & the Laughing Dogs. Tomorrow, get to Pigout at noon to catch RAWK final four winner Lazurwuulf on the Clocktower Stage. And you can camp out all day Sunday: Chris Rieser plays at noon, Kaylee Cole is at 6:30 pm and Hot Club of Spokane and Sha Na Na round out the night.

FUN = THE OLD DAYS
If Sha Na Na is too nostalgic for you Gen-X-ers, weasel your way into a ticket to see The Ultimate Michael Experience out at Northern Quest Casino. Joby Rogers, who plays the King of Pop in this show, was deemed the best MJ impersonator by the man himself. 8:30 pm. $40. Gotta be 21.

FUN = DANCING
Hit up the Lincoln Center tonight for salsa dancing and music by Son Dulce (see our post from earlier), DJ Yochanan and DJ Coz McDust. Tomorrow, head to the Lion's Lair for Slang, a post-punk, '80s, new-wave dance party with DJ Jewels (who we wrote about in our brand new Annual Manual magazine). And, last but not least, go over to Empyrean tomorrow to catch the experimental sounds of Finn Riggins, who played Elkfest this year. (Watch the video below for pre-show dancing.)



FUN = EARDRUM RINGING
We were so glad we brought earplugs to Jucifer last weekend at the Seaside. If your ears weren't there, or could take another beating, head to the Grail in Post Falls tonight for another round of face melting, loud-as-shit metal acrobatics. 7 pm. $8 - $10. Gotta be 18.

FUN = HOOTIN, HOLLERIN
Whiskey Dick Mountain is always good for a dancing while drinking. And tomorrow night they'll bring their friends, the Brothers Comatose, from the Bay Area over the Baby Bar to play their foot-stomping, sing-a-long Americana tunes. 10 pm. Free. Gotta be 21.
