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?
Greetings from Spokane Washington
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).
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.
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…
