The Shins, aka James Mercer and whoever he brings with him, play the Knitting Factory on Sept. 24.

The Shins have been circling the region on their tour since releasing their new album Heartworms in March, and now the pop-rock crew finally has a Spokane date on the calendar.

The Shins will play the Knitting Factory on Sunday, Sept. 24. Tickets are $39.50 and go on sale Friday at 10 am via the Knit's website and all TicketWeb outlets. Day Wave opens the show.
