Spokane Doesn't Suck

People think Spokane sucks. They're wrong.
Garland doesn’t suck, free, all-ages concerts don’t suck, and the bands playing this year don’t suck either. Who’s coming?

As a reminder, you’ve got until midnight tonight (August 9th) to submit your various works of art for Terrain, one of Spokane’s least-sucky events.
For those of you who haven’t experienced Terrain before, it is a one-night event that features area painters, sculptors, draughtsmen (draw-ers), sketch artists, mixed-media artists, textile artists, illustrators, photographers, digital artists, printmakers, sculptors and musicians downtown.
Terrain is consistently one of the best nights in Spokane. Artists, get your work submitted! Everyone else, mark your calendars.

Spokane’s already got a dominant donut shop (with an awful website) in Donut Parade, but one more can’t hurt anything. Particularly one that has a sign the size of their building that reads “ZOMBIES INSIDE KEEP OUT!”
We can’t say for sure, because it doesn’t open until this Friday, August 2nd, but from what we can tell so far Spokane’s newest zombie-inspired donut shop, Dawn of the Donut, won’t suck.
Also, we don’t know who this family is in the photo (we borrowed it from Dawn of the Donut’s Facebook page), but they took a family portrait in front of the sign with their baby, so they obviously don’t suck.
See you Friday?

Vintage Spokane post cards don’t suck, because vintage post cards don’t suck and neither does Spokane.

If you show up at Nyne tonight at 8:00, the hours that follow will not suck.
Local favorites Terrible Buttons are releasing their new album and it promises to be an amazing time (as those of you who were at their last Nyne show are sure to recall).
21+$7
Cathedral Pearls and The Hoot Hoots are opening.

Local music can suck, but if it’s being made Marshall McLean then it most certainly won’t.
He’s currently recording a new album and needs a little help to make it happen, and you can be among the helpers!
If you want to keep putting Spokane on the map of good indie music in the region/country, you should back this Kickstarter! If nothing else, you’ll get some really solid music out of it, and you’ll be supporting a local artist. None of that sucks.

We know we posted this photo last year, but hey… be cool.
If you think Hoopfest sucks, we politely disagree. When downtown Spokane is completely covered with people (and basketball courts), that is never a bad thing.
We’re looking forward to hanging out with everybody this weekend. See you there?

Casper Fry (one of Spokane’s least-sucky restaurants by a long shot) is having an anniversary party this Saturday. Free live music from some of Spokane’s least sucky local talents. Be there. It won’t suck.

Spokane is home to a lot of really talented artists and designers. We’ve interviewed a few of them before. Add Chris Bovey to the list of artists that don’t suck in Spokane. His locally-inspired prints are currently available for $20 a pop at Atticus downtown. Your wall could be cooler than it is, after all.
