Sure, we suppose you could camp out in one venue all night, but where's the fun in that? Volume is about discovery — seeing Spokane in a new light, exploring clubs you might not frequent and being blown away by all the music in the process. There are millions of different itineraries you could create, but below is one that has you seeing both incredible local acts and never-been-here touring performers. Best of all, you'll hit all 11 venues over the two nights!

As a semi-savvy festival veteran of events large and small, I know that pacing is key. Schedule conflicts happen, sure, but missing one band in favor of another is a lot better than missing a band because you drank too many beers too early. Looking at all I want to see in this year's Volume fest, I know it's a marathon, not a sprint, and that the best laid plans can go awry on a whim. Still, I have a plan:

Friday

6:15 pm: Silver Treason, Lucky You Lounge

7 pm: Liz Rognes, The Bartlett

8 pm: Froth, Washington Cracker Building

8:15 pm: Santa Poco, River City Brewing

9:45 pm: Marshall Law Band, Red Room Lounge

10:15 pm: Fun Ladies, The Big Dipper

11 pm: Indian Goat, The Pin

11:45 pm: Quayde LaHue, Mootsy's

Saturday

6:30 pm: Ex Pets, Baby Bar

7 pm: Mama Doll at Lucky You Lounge

8:15 pm: Moorea Masa & The Mood, nYne Bar & Bistro

8:30 pm: T.S. The Solution at Washington Cracker Building

9:15 pm: BaLonely, The Big Dipper

9:30 pm: Peru Resh, Berserk Bar

10:15 pm: The Emilys, Red Room Lounge

11:30 pm: Flee the Century, Berserk Bar

I take festival planning very seriously. It's important to make an itinerary and stick to it, but to also take the requisite breathers for eating and drinking and having some honest-to-god personal interactions. In Volumes past, I've tried hopping around as much as possible, and I'll probably do the same again this year, using our own fest as an excuse to see touring acts I've been curious about and to catch up on local bands I've yet to check out.
