I can’t imagine I’m the only one who struggles to remember the last time I was standing around in a crowd, beer in hand, watching some great music being performed live and in person. What used to happen several times a week has been on a major pause, but it’s time to hit “play,” people! Local roots-rockers Buffalo Jones are playing their first non-streaming show in 15 months on Saturday at Brick West Brewing. They’re calling it a “stripped down” set, but even at their most mellow Buffalo Jones always makes a mighty fine, hook-filled racket. You could even spend much of your day at the brewery and killer patio on downtown Spokane’s west end, as they’re hosting a free yoga class at 10 am, and then a Pints and Paws animal adoption through the afternoon starting at 1 pm. Get flexible, get a new pet and then get down come evening — solid plan!
Sat, June 19 at 6 pm • Free • All-ages on the patio and inside until 9 pm • Brick West Brewing • 1318 W. First Ave. • brickwestbrewingco.com
