THIS WEEKEND IN MUSIC: Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Mountain Music Festival and the Viking's All Age Rage

Posted By on Fri, Jul 18, 2014 at 2:47 PM


Bonnie “Prince” Billy will fill The Bartlett with his indie rock/Americana/folk sounds tonight. Having previously recorded under his real name — Will Oldham — along with Palace Brothers and Palace Music, he's sure to bring the same warbling voice Johnny Cash chose to cover back in 2000. David Ferguson will be opening the show at 8 pm and tickets are still available for $28.

After all touring and playing in separate bands, a trio of brothers from the Inland Northwest now make music together as Flying Mammals. Their 7:30 pm show is at the Jacklin Arts & Cultural Center in Post Falls and tickets are $15. 


Schweitzer Mountain Resort is hosting its annual Mountain Music Festival with free music beginning at noon. Local favorites Cedar & Boyer are followed by Seattle's Pretty Broken Things, the Marshall McLean Band, and finally the Seattle-based singer-songwriter who played in Sandpoint last weekend, the Ian McFeron Band, at 6 pm.

Featuring all local music, the Viking Bar's All Age Rage Volume II features the Nixon Rodeothe Lion Oh MyHelldorado and many other bands, happening both Saturday and Sunday. One-day or two-day passes are available for these outdoor concerts.

Rocky Votolato's once acoustic emo sounds now features intricate guitar riffs and soothing harmonies to create his extremely honest songs. Kevin Long and Bristol are opening his show at the Bartlett at 8 pm. The show is $15.

Spokane rockers Bullets or Balloons are releasing their new 7-inch EP this weekend, with a show at the Baby Bar with Kramer and Team Growl. Music starts at 9:30 and it's free.
