When stages shut down in 2020, Live from Somewhere stepped up to give Spokane musicians a place to play. The group’s video series took local acts to atypical spots around town — from a record store to dusty back lots — to play their music and capture the performance with cinematic flair. Now, Live from Somewhere is stepping into the actual live music space, launching a new monthly concert series at The Magic Lantern. The venue is a perfect fit given what the series values: local connection, unusual music spaces and a finely crafted visual product. The first edition features indie folk band Heat Speak (a previous Live From Somewhere act) and the vibraphone pop of Rosie CQ.
