THIS WEEKEND IN MUSIC: Mark McGuire, Moscow Hemp Fest, Kung Fu Vampire

Posted By on Fri, Apr 11, 2014 at 1:24 PM


Camille Bloom takes over nYne tonight with an acoustic rock show. The show is $10 and starts at 7 pm.

More in that same acoustic vein, Spokane Songwriters group plays Grande Ronde Cellars tonight. Musicians include Tommy Borges, Jerry Reynolds, Richard Allinger and Maxie Ray Mills. Listen from 7-9 pm while you drink some delicious wine.


Who doesn’t want to go see a vampire-themed hip-hop show? Kung Fu Vampire shows up at the Hop! as part of his Hunger Pains Tour on Saturday. The show starts at 8 pm and is $10.

Light up your day with the Moscow Hemp Fest. The free East City Park event brings in acts like Yabba Griffiths, Garrett Clevenger, Mother Yeti, The Swelbows, Simba & the Exceptional Afrikans and many more. Learn all about cannabis at this all-ages festival. It starts at 10 am and goes until 8 pm.


Not to be confused with the legendary ’roided-up home run hitter Mark McGwire, instrumental musician Mark McGuire plays a much different sort of game — dream pop. On his quest to find enlightenment, McGuire has developed a sort of drone electronica/charmingly psychedelic sound that is altogether captivating yet easily forgettable. Emerging out of the Cleveland electronic act Emeralds, the multi-instrumentalist has made a career out of trying to find himself, bringing listeners along on the journey. Monday, his meditative music will inhabit the Bartlett as part of his co-headlining tour with Norwegian polyphonic artist Jenny Hval. The show starts at 8 pm and is $10 at the door.
