Swamp-metal, spoken-word poetry and lending a hand

Posted By on Mon, Dec 15, 2014 at 10:01 AM

Happy Monday, folks. Glad to see you survived the weekend. Now let's talk about getting out and about today — we have a lot of event listings on the Inlander website for you to check out, as well as carefully culled Staff Picks

Here are a few highlights for Monday, Dec. 15: 

LIVE BANDS | Well, I wouldn't exactly call the intense band led by former Pantera screamer Phil Anselmo "soothing," but if you're into swampy, blues-based metal that's a might less proggy than his old band, the Knitting Factory show tonight featuring Down along with Orange Goblin, Bl'Ast and King Parrot could be for you.

WORDS | Competitive performance poetry in December? Wonder if I could win the cash prize with my dramatic interpretation of The Grinch. Or a spoken-word version of Down's greatest hits. Anyway, tonight The Bartlett is hosting the Spokane Poetry Slam

COMMUNITY | Head on over to River Park Square and find the Community Memorial Tree, sponsored by Hospice of Spokane. You can help decorate the tree for free through Dec. 21.
