Of Birds and Benefits & r & Local newspaper The Finger's one-year anniversary is on the horizon, and no one is more freaked out by that than the people who write it. To celebrate, they're throwing a live-music benefit bash this Saturday night at the B-Side with locals Belt of Vapor, High Holies, Freetime Synthetic, Amilayze and Flee the Century -- starts at 9 pm, and all door money collected will go to the Finger.
Who Do We Appreciate? & r & Speaking of benefits, there will be one with a little reggae flava on that very same Saturday night at the Blue Spark starting at around 9:30 pm. There's a $5 cover, with all door money going to benefit local activist groups & lt;a href="http://www.stoptheclock.org" & Stop the Clock & lt;/a & and the Radical Cheerleaders.
Hey, Good Lookin' & r & According to folks who were there, last Sunday night's Hank Williams III show at Fat Tuesday's was blistering good. "If you missed it," says Spokane Underground webmaster Wipson Chayns, "you missed a piece of Spokane history. It was packed to the gills with fans as young as 8 and as old as 80." For pix, go to Chayns' & lt;a href="http://spokane.undergroundcity.net" & Web site & lt;/a & . It's fun.
