Spokane Doesn't Suck

People think Spokane sucks. They're wrong.

Non-Spokane People Don't Think Spokane Sucks Either.

This isn’t a brand-new article, but then again, as lazy as we’ve been in sharing things, that shouldn’t surprise anyone.

Last weekend hundreds of folks from out of town were in Spokane for various events, namely the NCAA Men’s Tournament (which, no city allowed to hosts that sucks), and here’s what they had to say.

Spoiler alert: they liked us.

This particular trip down memory lane doesn’t suck.

Finding Shangri-La: One year in

thewhobewhatzit:

In a sense we are all searching for our Shangri-La, that mythical utopia that resides just over that next mountain if we just keep searching. Many of us go our whole lives telling ourselves we will one day find a place of happiness if we just keep moving. In an increasingly mobile society we are…

Ok, nothing about this sucks. Here are 6 reasons:
This is one of the more highly-anticipated events Spokane’s had in a while.
This will be the first event ever held in The Bartlett (which exists because Spokane made it happen).
The Marshall McLean Band’s album releasing at this show, Glossolalia, is insanely good and if there were awards for best albums released in the northwest in 2013, this would win them.
Mama Doll hasn’t played a show in a while, and of the shows they’ve played, none have disappointed.
Bart Budwig is coming up from Moscow, ID, and he’s a treat of a human being.
The poster design by Spokane’s own Karli Ingersoll (who we’ve featured before) is gorgeous.
So if you’re into music, and any age (because the Bartlett is all ages) you should plan on being at this event. Get your tickets in advance here.

It rained for a short spell today, and just as it stopped this was spotted on the sidewalk at the corner of Main and Bernard. Creative street art doesn’t suck.

We’re a little late on this, but not so late that any wrists should be slapped or anything like that.
Pig Out in the Park doesn’t suck. Free admission, reasonably priced eats, and TONS of free music. All right in the middle of downtown.
We hear a lot of people upset about Spokane’s lack of all-ages shows, and this weekend those arguments fall flat. Check out their (impressive) website for information about what bands are playing when.
Elephant Ears and good music don’t suck.

Garland doesn’t suck, free, all-ages concerts don’t suck, and the bands playing this year don’t suck either. Who’s coming?
