THIS WEEKEND IN MUSIC: YG cancels, but Labor Day Weekend lineups are strong

Posted By on Fri, Aug 29, 2014 at 1:21 PM

Finally, Labor Day Weekend is here. And for all of you not headed over to Seattle for Bumbershoot (Wu-Tang Clan, Mac Demarco and Big Freedia, ah!), there is still tons of great music happening right here in your backyard. Check it.

Yes, YG postponed his Knitting Factory show. A Twitter post from this morning lent some explanation: “Spokane. The show today got pu$hed back. Due to all this f—-in work I gott goin on.” We wrote about him in this week’s issue. 

As Inlander contributor Gawain Fadeley points out: together PANGEA have hit the pavement hard in 2014, touring in support of their awesomely named full-length, Badillac. This is a band unafraid of solos, but they’ve retained the knack for hooks that made their previous records stand out. Friday’s Bartlett performance will be the first of two area shows for the band in the coming months — watch for them when the Burger Records Caravan rolls through in October. The all-ages show, featuring Normal Babies and Meat Market, starts at 8 pm and is $10.

Local rockers Pine League have two shows Saturday tonight. They have the Mootsy’s gig with Estafets (starts at 9 pm and is $5), and then also the Bartlett show with the Blakes and the Camaros (the all-ages show starts at 8 pm and is $5). You could follow 'em around to both, or just hit up one. 

The one and only Pig Out in the Park continues through Monday featuring local and national acts Check out our music schedule ideas for you here. See the awesome food options here.
