We Love All-Agers: April 19-April 25

Posted By on Thu, Apr 19, 2012 at 2:14 PM

This week's all-ages shows around town —including a couple really big ones — are: 

Thursday, 4/19

Forza Coffee, Mark Lee, One Match Left

The Hop!, DJ One Major

Object Space, Acid Mother's Temple & the Melting Paraiso UFO, the Phantom Family Halo, Hooves, Space Movies, the Earwigs

Nearly alone onstage, Kawabata Makoto was a hurricane. Last year, on tour all the way from Japan, he did everything short of making the paint peel off the walls at Spokane’s Object Space. Makoto, who plays as if he were Jimi Hendrix’s protégé, returns this week with his longtime psychedelic space-rock band, Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso UFO. They play first or second, so get off work early to make sure you catch them before they scoot out for Minneapolis. $5. All-ages.

Friday, 4/20

A Club, Battle of the Bands with Nixon Rodeo, Not for Now, the Sky Turns Red, the Function

Bing Crosby Theater, April Smith & the Great Picture Show

Beasley Coliseum at WSU, 3Oh3!, Chingy

Just thinking about all the drinkin’, freakin’, strippin’ and sexin’ that’s bound to happen at this WSU Springfest show is enough to make anybody blush. The students pulled out a little bit of the mid-2000s for this year’s freakfest: the totally contagious joke-rap of 3OH3! and two-hit-wonder rapper Chingy. We’re sure the night won’t end without hearing “Right Thurr,” “Holidae In” and “Don’t Trust Me.”$12-$32. All-ages.
