    Talent shows aren’t always about talent. Sometimes they’re about something more.
      Nevertheless, Red Eye Promotions, a local marketing group, was determined to show that Spokane has, in fact, got talent. The second annual show will assemble the top 20 acts — discovered at auditions like the one last Saturday — who will perform for a celebrity panel.

    When a band gets back together, some people get really excited. Others get really pissed.
      People will inevitably laugh at how they’ve grayed, snicker at how their bellies have swelled. It could be the Pixies, Led Zeppelin, Pavement or, as in this case, a regional favorite like Black Happy.

    Blackwater Prophet wants the world. But how do they get it?
      For miles, there are houses and rows upon rows of green yards and perfect gardens with respectable cars parked in the driveways. There are parks. There are families walking in big bunches with dogs on

    Local scenesters remember why they loved (and why they hated) North Idaho’s best-known grunge-era band.

    Crowded House's time to make a comeback has passed.
      I’m always skeptical when my favorite bands mount a comeback. Are they going to wreck all my happy memories with their selfish little shot at renewed glory? So I was a little nervous when I pick

    Billy Corgan's ego aside, maybe Smashing Pumpkins should have called it quits back in 1997.
      I was turning 16, and my best friend gave me tickets to see Smashing Pumpkins — my first concert ever — on my birthday. At the time, just after the double album dropped, I was batshit-crazy for the band. And in my strange, self-centered 16-yearold mind, I remembered thinking they were coming to play for me.

    Spokane’s Electronic Dance Music fans may support national DJs, but local acts are left fighting for limited limelight
      Last March, neon-clad droves of sweaty, cake-covered kids poured out of the Knitting Factory doors. The cold night air served as a stabilizer for the Steve Aoki set they’d just witnessed inside.

    Solid, trunk-rattling music from a Spokane transplant

    When two brothers lost their faith, they found their voices
      The opposite can be said about his younger brother, Kent. His voice is nearly always straining, like it’s being extruded through vocal chords lined with gravel and cigarette butts. He screams and stomps occasionally, and when he sings, it comes in fits and starts.

    Electronic music is in a renaissance, but it'll need local venues to keep it alive.
      The police were following them on Facebook. Or so says Eddie Proulx (aka DJ Eddie P), who had a thousand kids waiting in a Coeur d’Alene parking lot last summer for a free electronic show. Bu

    The only remaining music store in NorthTown Mall doesn’t sell Taylor Swift.
      Genesis Veronon’s hustle would be at home on the street corners of most American cities, where artists, hungry for a break, step away from Facebook and ReverbNation to peddle their albums and mixtapes person-to-person in front of bodegas and at public markets.

    It's The Great Escape followed by a very, very long stroll.
      The Poles and the Russians, along with one American (Ed Harris), gather their wits and head out. Before it’s over, they cross deserts and mountains and flat plains, they deal with hunger and thirst and other creatures that are dealing with hunger and thirst, and they come together as a sort of family.

    Jinx has seen the future, and the future is Jinx
      “The fi rst line on my album is ‘My name is Jinx and I am better than you,’” laughs the Massachusetts-raised 20-year-old. “When we were in the studio, I was told that line could turn people off, that I should re-word it. But I’m a fan of artists who have no boundaries in their expression.

    Is the local music scene a level playing field for male and female musicians?
      It’s not that we’re man-haters or feminist zealots. These bras are way too expensive to burn. Let’s get that fact — this is merely a pointed Q&A and not some prelude to she

    When a band or a venue needs someone to fill in, they call "multi-instrumentalist" Benjamin Jorgens.
      The Spokane music scene relies on a skinny 22-year-old. You’ve probably seen him. He wears thin black glasses, tweed sport coats and a classy array of men’s dress shoes. His chariot is a y

    The Soul and the Machine take noise and a stream-of-consciousness construction to form Spokane's newest sound.
      As strange as it sounds, most bands aren’t driven by noise. Instead, their music is focused on melody, harmony and progressions. The game of sustained noise experimentation is played by a curious few — and the Soul and the Machine is one of Spokane’s most consistent players.
