First off, tonight is First Friday. Check out all the art and live music happening all over Spokane. Many of the venues offer alcohol tastings and even some free nibbles.
Trying to go out to Harrington, Wash., tonight? Tayla Lynn, Loretta Lynn’s granddaughter, plays the Harrington Opera House at 7 pm. And just like her legendary grandma, Tayla plays a fine blend of country and Americana music; just don’t expect the big-ass dresses on stage. Accompanying her is Grammy Award-winning guitarist Eric Tingstad. Tickets are $20.
Every time you hear the local Americana act Marshall McLean Band you know you’re going to get a highly consistent set full of catchy, original music. Saturday, the act plays an all-ages show at the Bartlett at 8 pm. Tickets are $15 the day of.
The rock group Tedeschi Trucks Band, which features Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, was just here last December (read our story here). But the band is back again, this time at the INB Performing Arts Center. The show starts at 8 pm and is $35 and up.
The Hop! doesn’t have one show Saturday night, it has two! So much loud, hardcore music is about to be unleashed. Show up with $13 at 6 pm for the early show, then stay for the late show, which starts at 9 pm. As the Facebook event page for the event states: If you don't want to get hit, stay out of the pit.
EARLY SHOW: Desolated, Benchpress, Extortionist, Groundfeeder, Keep In Check
LATE SHOW: Lord Dying, Castle, the Drip, Mercy Brown
The Viking hosts the rock band Divides (the one from Portland, not the U.K.) and local acts Boat Race Weekend (although they’ve recently moved to Seattle) and Jordan Collins.
