Seattle's Sir Mix-A-Lot headlines Pig Out in the Park Friday night. This show most likely won't be as wild as his performance at last year's Perry Street Shakedown.

This fashion-forward 1980s pop magic act is headed to the Northern Quest Resort and Casino Friday night, touting all of the old favorites but also a lot of the new music off last year's critically-acclaimed Paper Gods. The show starts at 7:30 pm and tickets begin at $65. Read our full preview article on the band right here.
ITCHY KITTY CD RELEASE With this Spokane punk act, the cat reigns supreme. That's right, with Itchy Kitty you can expect more than a few meows, purrs and screams throughout their shows. They'll hit up the Observatory Sunday night at 9 pm ($3 cover) for their debut studio album release. In case you can't make it, the album is available for purchase at Garageland, but you can also listen right here.
THOSE OTHER SHOWS Carrie Underwood comes to the Spokane Arena Sunday and Dave Matthews Band comes to the Gorge Amphitheater for their annual Labor Day Weekend extravaganza. Neither are sold out. There, now you know.
