It's no secret that 2020 is a leap year, which affords us an extra day in February, and we suggest you spend it listening to some great local music: Allow us to recommend a couple downtown concerts this weekend that are specifically taking advantage of the rare Feb. 29, aka Leap Day.

First up, a trio of local hard rock bands are hitting the stage at the Big Dipper: Civiliance, Old Friends and Gotu Gotu are all relatively new to the Spokane scene, but they're already making names for themselves. Admission is just $8.

Berserk, meanwhile, is hosting three Spokane punk bands — Sentient Divide, Greying and Headless/Heartless — to help get your thrashin' on. Admission is $7. ♦
