Local art and music collide at Unifest, a relatively new annual event that’s going to fill downtown Spokane with colorful sights and sounds on Saturday afternoon. Live music starts at 4 pm, and the main stage features two bands from Seattle (the experimental hip-hop of Cosmos and the electro-pop of Dead Rich) and two local acts (the R&B-inspired Super Sparkle and the soaring instrumental quartet Deer). You can also visit the so-called “Dance Dome,” where you can groove to the electronica stylings of Tech Tax and the bellydance troupe Picaresque. And beyond the music, you’ll have a lot more to see and do: There will be a pop-up shop marketplace selling art and wares, timed art battles and a No-Li beer garden featuring sets from DJs Orange and Case.
Sat, July 29 from 4-10 pm • $15 general, $50 for groups of five • All-ages • Downtown Spokane • 207 N. Wall • unifestnorthwest.com
