Dispatches from the local music scene, late April edition

Posted By on Mon, Apr 22, 2013 at 1:48 PM

A couple of updates from local talent on this sunny Monday afternoon.

First up, female emcee Jaeda (who The Inlander named a Band to Watch in 2010) dropped a brand new video this week for her song "The Real Thing." If you've seen Jaeda perform, you'll remember this song — it's one that always seems to get the crowd dancing and singing along. And it's the perfect introduction to her positive, stress-free brand of hip-hop.

Also, local rock outfit Tabletop Joe kicked out a video for its song "Last Time I Saw You" in the last couple of weeks. It's a cute, sing-song track — and the video shows the band driving around in a VW van and stopping in a Spokane alley to jam out to a bunch of friends.

And in case you haven't heard it, Cathedral Pearls released a new track recently, called "Give Lend Share." You can hear it here. The band also announced today that they'll have a new eight-song record out on May 14. Watch the band's Bandcamp page for that to pop up.

Also, not to toot our own horns or anything, but did you see the news about our Volume lineup this year? We think it's going to be one heckuva good time. Check out the artists playing this year on the event's Facebook page, and be ready to buy tickets online this Thursday.

If you're a local musician with a new song, video or piece of news you would like to share, send it along to leahs at inlander dot com.
