Lilac City Metal Fest feat. his Or The Apocalypse, Sworn In, Shai Hulud, Sirens & Sailors, Barrier, Adaliah, Silence, Undertaker, Extortionist, High Regard, What Wings Once Held

While you’re young and don’t have to worry about sensible shoes and back pain and tax returns and other stupid adult shit, you better be spending your time at nine-hour rock concerts. This weekend, featuring acts like This or the Apocalypse, Razor & Tie’s Sworn In, longtime hardcore band Shai Halud and a whole bunch of other acts, Lilac City Metal Fest serves you nine hours of eardrum-exploding, heavy, distorted mania. All before 11 pm. So when you hear someone say that there’s nothing to do in Spokane, you can respond, “Seriously? I just saw nine hours of awesome music. Where the hell were you?”
