THIS WEEKEND IN MUSIC: Hieroglyphics! In Flames!

Posted by on Fri, Feb 3, 2012 at 2:35 PM

Not a great weekend for live music in terms of volume of shows, but the few things happening are great ones...

TONIGHT!

In many ways, the Hieroglyphics crew epitomizes the narrative of the independence-driven “backpack” rap of the mid-late ’90s and early 21st century. The outfit has a massive following, so tonight's show at the Red Room should be packed to the gills. Check out our story from this week's paper here. It kicks off at 7 pm. $20. Gotta be 21.

SATURDAY!

If you’re looking to leave with a bangover after this weekend’s In Flames show, keep your neck muscles in check. The band you’ll see this weekend is an interpretation of its former self — playing stages around the world today with none of its original members or, really, the sound it started with back in the early 1990s. That’s not to say the Swedish melodic metal band isn’t worth seeing. Check them out tomorrow at the Knitting Factory with Trivium, Veil of Maya and Kyng. $26. All-ages.

Spokane's beloved dark-folk band, Terrible Buttons, has come back from a long tour, and plays a "welcome back" show tomorrow night at Red Room. 8 pm. $5. Gotta be 21.
