THIS WEEKEND IN MUSIC: The sounds of Hoopfest, Paradiso

Posted By on Fri, Jun 27, 2014 at 12:44 PM

What a beautiful summer day we’re having… Maybe not so much, but there’s always room for live music in a warm place.


Seattle’s Witchburn is the sort of band that makes you feel deeply all while making your ears ring quite loudly — they’re sludge rockers with a violinist, yes. They play the Hop! tonight with Wild Throne, Ape Machine and Project Kings starting at 8 pm. The all-ages show is $10.

True, string-based folk groups are all the rage right now in the Northwest, but don’t hold that against Seattle-based Blackberry Bushes String Band. They play Jones Radiator on Friday and Saturday night.

EDM paradise Paradiso festival starts today. Even if you can’t make the Gorge festival this weekend, there’s plenty more regional festivals happening all summer.


Cruisers hosts Stateline Music Fest  Saturday starting at 1 pm. The show features all these bands: Invasive, Vile 8, project Kings, Seeds, Weary Traveler, Seven Cycles, 5 Times Over, Free the Jester, UnderCard, Hostile Approach and more. Tickets are $15 at the door.

Spokane experimental groups Loomer and Space Movies, along with Portland dream pop act Appendixes, offer a weird and wonderful experience Saturday night at the Big Dipper. The all-ages show starts at 9 pm.


Hoopfest is happening all weekend baby and there is plenty of live music to go right along with it. Saturday night, the Viking Bar is throwing a Hoopfest Parking Lot Party feat. Death By Pirates, Drop Off, Dead Serious Lovers and Jack Parker. Sunday night, the Red Room Louge is throwing a Hoopfest weekend party with Seattle rapper Nacho Picasso headlining. That show is $10 the day of and starts at 9 pm.


Rockers the Everymen travel to the Baby Bar this Sunday all the way from New Jersey while on tour for their new album Givin' Up On Free Jazz. Fun Ladies open for the free show that starts at 9 pm.
