Although he’s currently based in New Orleans, Spokane native and former NFL player Steve Gleason — diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, in 2011 — is rightfully considered a local hero. Gleason has become one of the most vocal supporters of ALS sufferers since being sidelined by the disease, and his annual hometown music festival, Gleason Fest, has not only been dedicated to funding research, it’s brought a wide array of artists to town over the past six years. The big headliners this time include Grouplove, the electro-pop band best known for the earworm “Tongue Tied,” and the London Souls, a New York-based duo specializing in down-and-dirty, retro blues-rock. Local talent includes Lavoy, Hey! Is for Horses and the relatively new folk trio Sulphur Banks. If you can’t make the festival, worry not: You can still donate to the cause at gleasonfest.org.
