City Beat 

Last Friday? Volume? We’re speechless.

I’m no crier. But for a second last Friday, after Belt of Vapor finished its first song and the crowd at A Club — a packed house of smiles and crazy colored pants and blue wristbands — screamed like it was AC/ DC up there on the stage, I got tears in my eyes. Here we were, a music scene united — a scene of well over a thousand people coming out to show their love and support of the unbelievable bands we have here in Spokane.

To everyone — that guy fist pumping in front of BBBBandits, the woman freaking like a fly girl to Freetime Synthetic, the bands who drove from Moscow and Coeur d’Alene, all the drinkers and dancers and headbangers and moshers — thank you. You proved that Spokane doesn’t need to be Seattle or Portland or anywhere else.

We are who we are. And being Spokane is fantastic.
