Visually, The Phat House is actually a pretty small house buried in the shadow of the South Hill hospitals. Aurally, though, it’s home to a big sound — provided, mostly, by local artists.

“We’re trying to be basically for the artist and I think that our premise is good,” says owner T. Michael Miller. “I want to run this from an artist’s [perspective]. Remove the middle ground to work with the artists.”

The Phat House throws a couple grand opening shows this weekend, featuring the EWU Jazz faculty and the Carcinogens on Friday night, and Tommy G and Mythship on Saturday, among many others. Check out our blog here with details, and get to Inlander HQ before 5 pm today to get free tickets. (21)

Also happening:

Baby Bar, Flying Spiders Birthday Bash with Baby Spiders, MJ the Inhuman Beatbox, Third Seven (21)

Kristine Flahert went from the Stanford University classroom to being called K. Flay and being praised on the worldwide hip-hop stage. Read our interview with her from April here, and check her out at the A Club Saturday night. (All-ages)

Also Saturday:
Phat House, Grand House Warming Party, night 2

Some GREAT shows Sunday night:

You totally remember Local H, right? “And you just don’t get it, keep it copacetic, and you learn to accept it, you know you’re so pathetic…” That song, “Bound for the Floor,” made the Chicago two-piece band (a rarity at that time) a smash success in the late 1990s. They play Carr's Corner on Sunday at 8 pm. (21)

Mike Watt, of the Minutemen, comes to town Saturday with his band, the Missingmen, and his latest rock opera. We got on the phone with Watt this week to talk about those old days of rock, and continuing to learn through life — read that interview here. (21)
