Restaurant Week is here, but after you’re done savoring that last morsel of food you’ll need to check out these awesome shows.

It’s nearly St. Patrick’s Day … in a couple weeks, but still it’s time to get into that Irish state of mind. Tonight, the Young Dubliners tear through the Knitting Factory to help with that. The all-ages show is $14 and starts at 8:30 pm. Read our interview with the band and also some local Irish bands here.

SATURDAY (It’s a big night)

Portland’s John Craigie is used to doing things solo. Saturday he travels to the Bartlett along with a backing band for the first time. The all-ages show starts at 8 pm and is $12 the day of. Read our story on the singer-songwriter here.

The Hoot Hoots are a Seattle band who truly appreciate Spokane, playing here multiple times a year. This time they’re back with touting a wild new album at the Big Dipper. The show kicks off at 9 pm with the Camaros and Goodnight Venus opening. Cost is $12 the day of.

The Brown family recently lost their house to a fire and the Hop! hosts a benefit party to help them through this plight Saturday night. Local musicians offering their talents to the evening are: Tommy Gant, Psycho Syndicate, Willow, the Colouflies, Steven Jaimz, Jar in the Bar Band and Banish the Echo. The show starts at 6 pm and is $3.

Red Room Lounge celebrates local hippie musician Lucas Brown’s birthday with a big show featuring his band Bodhi Drip, Bard and out of towner hip-hoppers Galaxe. The show starts at 10 pm and entry is by donation.

According to Facebook, local rockers the Smokes, Sales Wagon and BBBBandits play Mootsy’s Saturday night. We’re excited anytime a show goes down at Mootsy’s. Get there by 10 pm.

The Perry District gets a little louder Saturday with its celebratory Winterfest. The event happens in a tent outside of Perry Street Pizza and is completely free. Awesome local acts like Pine League, Yak Attack and Hey! is for Horses perform. Get there around 4 pm and stay forever ... or until they kick you out.

The brand new music venue should open this weekend, so owner Thomas Chavez says. Check out that lineup here. The best way to see if it’s open? Show up.
