T-SHIRTS

We’re big fans of those T-shirts down at Boo Radley’s that read “Spokanistan” or that feature Spokane icons like the garbage goat. A couple of local designers are building on that idea with a new clothing line that they’re calling The Great PNW. Joel and Tori Barbour have designed a set of shirts and posters —¬†featuring headdressed natives, roaming buffalo, foggy treescapes and statements like “Go West Young Man” — that they feel represent our upper corner of the U.S. They’ll have just finished a super-successful Kickstarter by the time you read this, so follow them on Facebook to find out when you can nab one of their rad shirts.

ALBUM

There’s something really interesting about San Francisco’s Kowloon Walled City. Over the course of a few EPs and two full lengths, the band has honed a sound that fuses a calm, post-rock vibe (think Mogwai) with heavier stylings of, say, bands like Unsane. On their latest album, Container Ships, the band keeps things thick and serious, but somehow has a steady enough hand to keep the anger and rage restrained. It’s a loud album that’s almost beautiful —¬†a record with anger and frustration bubbling just below the surface, but never boiling so fast that it overtakes the mood.

COMEDY

Perhaps you think hipsters are a very funny group of people to make fun of. Or maybe you think office parties are stupid. Then the sketch comedy group Harvard Sailing Team is up your alley. They’re not from Harvard. They’re also not sailors. They are a team, though: a New York troupe of nine people that has racked up a massive list of accolades for its sketch work, and which has more than 10 million views on YouTube. Do yourself a favor: when you’re done reading this, watch their “Hipster Thanksgiving” video. You’re welcome.
