Okay, so I know I’ve neglected this blog in a huge way, and for that I am sorry, but an event has happened this week in Spokane that has highlighted something that I feel needs to be addressed rather quickly, and that is Spokane’s inferiority complex. Now, I knew upon moving here that this complex…
If you didn’t listen to our admonition to catch Volume last weekend (or you weren’t old enough to do so), then do NOT miss Elkfest this weekend in Brown’s Addition. So many good bands, and it’s free!
Elkfest doesn’t suck, because Brown’s doesn’t suck, and good live music doesn’t suck. Here’s the line up for the weekend. See you there?

430 Terrible Buttons
830 The Cave Singers

Sunday June 9
2 Folk Inception
4 The Rustics
6 Blake Noble
8 Bryan John Appleby
Last year, Spokane realized its potential during Volume. This year, it promises to be twice as awesome, as it’s twice as long. Buy your tickets in advance and save money. You do not want to miss this. http://volume.inlander.com.
If you missed Volume last year… well you missed what may have been the best night of the year.
The Inlander just posted (some of) the line up for this year’s Volume, Spokane’s biggest local music block party, and it looks fantastic.
Volume doesn’t suck. At all.
Spokane’s own Gonzaga Bulldogs don’t suck. And they’ve given Spokane a lot of good love in the media this March Madness season.
Go Zags. Keep not sucking.
There is a whole lot of music coming out of Spokane these days that doesn’t suck. One example of many is this new single from Marshall McLean, called Sinking Ships. This song really doesn’t suck.
Marshall is playing with Sandpoint’s Cedar and Boyer tonight at downtown Spokane’s Boots Bakery at 8pm. It’s bound to be good.
Like so many things in Spokane, something that was merely an idea a few months ago is a (very cool) reality today.
The Great PNW has locally designed and inspired clothing, accessories, stickers and prints available for sale on their brand new website, www.thegreatpnw.com.
The site doesn’t suck. Their merch doesn’t suck. Do it.

This pano of our fair city doesn’t suck. Nope.
