This space is not an office.
A designer does not work in this space, but this space is the work of a designer. The designer owns this space. The designer’s husband, a music promoter, also owns this space….
One of the reasons Spokane doesn’t suck is its remarkably good local music scene. One of the bands that plays a big role in that is Mama Doll, who is releasing their first album tonight at The Bartlett.
There are still some tickets available at the door, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the show sells out, so swing by and get your tickets this afternoon or show up early and grab a drink.
All ages, $12, supporting local artists, having a great night. Who’s in?
If we only had one night to convince a Spokane nay-sayer that Spokane doesn’t suck, we’d take them to Terrain. It is the least sucky, single-night event Spokane offers each year. It’s a top-notch multimedia art and music event whose submissions come entirely from local artists.
If you want to have your work featured in Spokane’s best art show, you have exactly 24 hours as of the time of this posting to submit you work for consideration.
You can submit up to 10 pieces of art, and they’re due at midnight. Don’t act like we never told you.
Last night we posted about how awesome Spokane summers are, and tonight has to capacity to be one of your best night of the summer. Start out at the Perry Street Fair, then shoot downtown for the Songs for Kids benefit show at The Bartlett.
Songs for Kids is a non profit that doesn’t suck and, in their words, “work[s] year-round to bring music to children’s hospitals and special needs camps through live interactive concerts, hospital bedside performances and our Songs For Kids Records songwriting & recording program.”
Between the Perry Street Fair and this Songs for Kids show you can see most of our favorite local bands in one night, all while paying merely what you want, and if you do pay, you’ll be supporting a great cause, which doesn’t suck.
It’s a good time of year for live music in Spokane. A fantastic Volume weekend just wrapped up, and this weekend we get another non-sucky series of shows in Elkfest.

Volume is arguably the least sucky thing that happens each year in Spokane, and it’s coming up this weekend, May 30-31.
If you order in advance, it’ll cost you less than $20 for a wristband that gets you access to all of it.
Regardless of your musical taste, you’ll be able to find plenty of bands and artists to fit your liking. Plus, there are a handful of all-ages options, so no excuses for you under-21 folk.
In short, if you like music, and you can only go to one musical event in 2014, give some serious thought to making Volume that event.
