Sound Advice 

by Mike Corrigan and Leah Sottile


Juicy Tidbits -- No matter what kind of music you dig, you have to respect musicians so single-mindedly devoted to a concept that they surrender their lives to it. For the constantly touring guitar'n'drums duo, Jucifer, that concept is volume -- huge, growling, roaring sheets of the stuff, courtesy of Amber Valentine's over-amped guitar and Ed Livengood's pounding drums. The band performed last Saturday night at the B-Side to a full house eager to experience the couple's infamous 7,000-watt maelstrom of sound.


For the most part, they were not disappointed. While a few stunned onlookers seemed unable to grasp anything recognizably musical in the relentless waves of amplifier howl emanating from a stage literally packed to the ceiling with Valentine's speaker cabinets, those with a deep and abiding love of feedback and overdrive taken to the cliffs of insanity experienced a moment of rock bliss. Surely, it was a night our brains -- not to mention our eardrums -- will not soon forget.





Oh, the Places We'll Go -- B-Side, Fat Tuesday's, B-Side, Fat Tuesday's, Mootsy's -- the number of venues for bands to get their gig on is minimal here in Spokaloo, but you can chalk a couple more onto your list. Rock Coffee, the newest addition to Spokane's coffee shop klatch, is hosting live music every Friday and Saturday night, and is always looking for more to mix it up. Give Katie Rothrock a call at the Rock at 838-1864.


And our homies over at Caf & eacute; Doma in Coeur d'Alene have their space set up for nighttime performances, but also want early morning acts to perform during weekend brunches. Drop Doma a line at [email protected] And check out the newest live music venue in North Idaho, the Coeur d'Alene Tea House, in this week's Best of the Inland Northwest pullout section.
