THIS WEEKEND IN MUSIC: Goodbye Small Town, Hello New Venue

Posted By on Fri, Dec 16, 2011 at 3:04 PM


Indisputably one of Spokane's favorite local bands right now, the Terrible Buttons (see our story on them from a little while back here) play the A Club tonight with Yukon Blonde and the Fling. 8 pm. $8. Gotta be 21.

Beloved longtime local pop punk band, Small Town Nation, calls it quits once and for all tonight at their farewell show at the Knitting Factory. Read our story about that break-up here, and check the band out tonight at 7:30 pm. $5. All-ages.

We had the pleasure of getting on the phone this week from the hilarious Eddie Spaghetti, frontman in the Supersuckers, last week. Check out our story on the band here, and see them tonight at the Red Room Lounge (521 W. Sprague). Geoff Johnson and His Model T Jesus opens. 7 pm. $12. Gotta be 21.


Mike Herrera, former frontman of the ’90s pop-punk band MxPx has strayed from his hardcore roots and adopted a bit of twang with his latest quasi-country outfit Tumbledown. The Bremerton, Wash., band’s American tunes are spattered with acoustic and electric guitar, punk-inflected riffs, upright bass and just a little bit of grinnin’ and a-pickin’. Check them out with Diamond Speedboat tomorrow at 8 pm at Carr's Corner (230 S. Washington). $5. Gotta be 21.

And, for the 300th time this year (we're not complaining), all-girl AC/DC cover band Hell's Belles returns to the the Knitting Factory. 8:30 pm. $13. All-ages.

Last, but not least, the Horse Thieves rock the house at Mootsy's tomorrow. Sure to be packed. 10 pm. $5. Gotta be 21.
