Rawk for All Ages 

by Mike Corrigan


RAWK is back in the saddle. After a two-month hiatus following the cessation of anything remotely musical at the group's previous adopted home (the Big Dipper), the non-profit, faith-based organization is holding an all-ages nu-metal show at Fat Tuesday's Concert Hall at the old Bayou Brewery this Sunday night. This show marks the resumption of business as usual for the group, which since 2000 has staged a steady stream of safe, drug- and alcohol-free punk, rap and metal shows for Spokane's music-hungry all-ages crowd.


Sunday night's show features two young national bands and one local group that all specialize in pounding contemporary hard rock of various metallic shades. Kicking things off will be local metal quartet Distress. Comprised of four Rogers High School grads, the band has been a common sight lately at all-ages shows around town. Second up is Denver's Junker Jorg, which has been making a name for itself in the Mile High City opening for such like-minded powerhouses as Korn and System of a Down. The centerpiece of the show is Knoxville, Tenn., rap-core outfit, Disciple. As its name implies, this trio is a ministry band -- but one that drives home its message of love and acceptance with explosive rhythms, jagged guitar shards and percussive vocals.


The show is open to everyone, so come celebrate Cinco de Mayo, blow off what little energy you have after Bloomsday or just baste yourself in the beautiful noise.
