University Rock

University Rock

The music regional college kids make these days
College is the perfect time to start a band.

Content Cowboy

How country act Texas Twister became the toast of Airway Heights
The people filtering in offer hugs and kisses to one another.

Lifetime Achievement

For more than 30 years, Vancouver's D.O.A. has shown fans what it means to be punk rock
A lot of bands formed the early sound of hardcore punk, including Teen Idles, Minor Threat, Bad Brains and Black Flag.

Basement Beatmaker

RedKing takes a sample, chops it up, screws with it, adds some drums — then does it again the next day
There's loud, excited barking on the other side of the front door.

An Island No More

With the release of their fourth record, it's time to start paying attention to Future Islands
His stage presence is at once electrifying and in the next moment edging toward melancholic.

In the Beginning

Poison Idea was there at the start of punk rock and will be there until the very end
It's gotta be weird to have been there in the early days, when punks were reviled and feared, and have seen things come full circle — where you can step into any shopping mall in America, and you walk out a punk: purple hair dye, standard issue Ramones T-shirt, pre-safety-pinned and back-patched denim vests and rings and studs for whatever piercing you've got.

Instrumental Road Trip

Bearcubbin'! is rolling its mature, thought-provoking rock across America
Their trailer-hauling SUV sped across the barren expanse of west Texas, through the inky night.

The End of Robot Singing?

T-Pain made the use of Auto-Tune in hip-hop and pop wildly popular; then musicians turned on him
The pristine, white yacht flashes in the frame.

Business End

Turns out Big Business isn't just a clever band name
Say you're a stoner rock band or a sludge metal outfit.

Brothers in Blues

Fresh off competing at the International Blues Challenge, Bakin' Phat continues to show Spokane what having the blues is all about
When he's on stage, it's hard to tell what Dave Allen's face really looks like.

Perfect Strangers

Qui's avant-garde rock is just weird enough that it might be brilliant
Over the course of musical history, there are people who have become greatly respected and revered for being truly f---ing weird.

Joke's On Us

For 24 years, Tool has had a lot to say — much of it inspired by a stand-up comic
Tool is not a funny band.

More to Come

Dane Ueland returns to Spokane with a new look for his band & Yet
Last November, Maren Haynes was driving around Spokane when she heard her bandmate Dane Ueland's earthy voice on the radio.

Sound Gardener

In work and play, Marielle V. Jakobsons lives a life entrenched in sound
Some days when Marielle V. Jakobsons goes to work in the morning, she's thinking about a million cockroaches scuttling through the walls of a house.

Strong but Sweet

The Thermals have spent a decade marrying ferocity and melody
The Thermals are the sort of noise the Northwest has needed for the past decade.
