There looks to be no way around it, snow is coming. Ugh! (Check out my suggestions for getting through it here). But as no one likes a complainer, the best thing to do here is buck up and go check out some awesome local shows, and probably get some $2 pints.
Ready for some blue-collar hip-hop that’s ready “to bring the thunder” tonight? The Quality Control Tour feat, OverTime, Illest Uminati and many more take on Carr’s Corner at 9 pm.
Wear your finest flannel shirt to this band’s show Friday night at Jones Radiator. Peddling their new album, The Flannel Attractions bring a piece of Wyoming with them wherever they go. For all those sick of banjo-touting folk acts, this group seems to be coming from an unfabricated space.
The Bartlett is opening. As of today it is opening.
At that show Northwest Americana rock artist Marshall McLean and his band will release his brand new album Glossolalia and Mama Doll and Bart Budwig will open. Get your tickets early and pay $10, otherwise its $12. Starts at 8 pm.
UPDATE: As of yesterday, when this blog was posted, the Bartlett was opening. Today, Friday, the show has been moved next door to nYne.
Further down Sprague that same evening, Jones Radiator will be celebrating its third year in business. What better way to celebrate than by bringing in DJ Lydell for a ‘80s Dance Party? Exactly.
Also, don't forget Morgan Page is bringing his EDM show to the Knitting Factory this evening as well.
The small, barely-known band Nine Inch Nails will be “nailing” the Spokane Arena Tuesday night. Watch out, front-man Trent Reznor may even smile while he’s there. Explosions in the Sky will open for the rock act. The Checkerboard Bar will be hosting an after party with Black Lodge as soon as that show gets out.
Things get classy out at Chateau Rive with singer-songwriter Keller Williams Wednesday. A former collaborator with the String Cheese Incident, Williams brings along his jam-band style and probably some new tunes from his upcoming album. The show is $20 and starts at 9 pm.
