Spokane Doesn't Suck

People think Spokane sucks. They're wrong.

Huntington Park doesn’t suck. Not. Even. Close.

Whether you work downtown or haven’t been downtown in 10 years, you should pay this place a visit.

Volume is arguably the least sucky thing that happens each year in Spokane, and it’s coming up this weekend, May 30-31.
80 Bands.
8 Venues.
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.

Merch?

We’ve been thinking about making some merch that doesn’t suck, and promotes Spokane in a not sucky way. Would you be in? Shirts? Mugs? Stickers?

Zombie movies/TV shows don’t suck. Actually, some do. But if you were in them, they wouldn’t, and guess what Spokane? You can be.
The people who gave the world Sharknado are making a 13-episode zombie TV show called Z Nation that will be filmed in and around Spokane, and they are looking for extras of all ages, shapes and colors. 
The talent agency Big Fish NW Talent is in charge of getting all these extras (read: you!) so if you’re into it, read up on their website to submit your services.
Shoot dates are this Fall and Spring, so get your stuff in quick. And let us know if they pick you, deal?

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.

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…
