THIS WEEKEND IN MUSIC: Snoop Dogg, Pat Benatar, Big Dipper benefit

Posted By on Fri, Apr 25, 2014 at 11:01 AM


Portland rock four-piece the Hague features an electric violin, but don't expect them to sound like Yellowcard. They bring their folkish, alt-rock ways to the Bartlett tonight. Local acts Drag Like Pull and Moon Talk open the show. The show is all-ages and $8 at the door.


Dead Serious Lovers put out a new album nearly a year ago and it’s still pretty great. They play the Bartlett Saturday with the Echolarks. Expect to hear much off that album but hopefully some new tracks as well.

Are you trying to help save the Big Dipper or what? Show up at the venue Saturday to hear local acts Blackwater Prophet, Pyramids of Panic, Bandit Train and T & the Beav for free. All donated proceeds directly benefit the venue, which plans to have its grand opening in May. The event is 21+.

Snoop Dogg, man. He’s back. It seems, says Leah Sottile, that the kids responsible for Washington State University’s annual Springfest have hit the jackpot this year, nabbing Snoop Dogg (aka Snoop Lion) to headline the event. The only thing that could go wrong? The longtime rapper could perform a set entirely of his terrible reggae songs under his newly assumed “Lion” moniker. Give the people what they want, man: gin, juice, endo, murder — none of this hippie-dippy bullshit. $44/public; $29/WSU students.

The Red Room Lounge meanwhile, has Oakland rapper A-Plus along with Jay Tablet and Knobody, DJ Harlo and IMperfect Cody performing. The show starts at 9 pm and is $10.


Pat Benatar and her husband Neil Giraldo may have been rocking for a long time, but rest assured that Benatar can still belt as high as any rafter will allow. They take on the Coeur d’Alene Casino Sunday. Tickets start at $50.

Giving CdA Casino a run for its money this Sunday is Northern Quest Casino, pulling in seasoned rockers Blue Öyster Cult. It’s been 13 years since BÖC released a new album, so you can guarantee they’ll play all of your favorites. The show starts at $35. More cowbell!
