Day FIVE in our countdown to VOLUME — which happens tomorrow night!
Today's video features K. Clifton — a local emcee and beatmaker who has played on regional stages for years as Quiz. From lyrics to delivery, Clifton is far from your typical rapper. He'll rap about loneliness and the ways of the universe, and he'll do it in such a way that is dry and blunt, calm and unflappable. He's not just unique for Spokane — he's unique for hip-hop. Read our story about the man behind the mic here, and check out the video below to hear a little more about how he thinks about music. He'll round out the bill tomorrow night — and you'll want to stick around for that.
TOMORROW — Thursday, May 26 — we'll host Volume: The Inlander's Local Music Extravaganza, featuring our five Bands to Watch, which you can read about in this week's Local Music Issue: Horse Thieves, Silver Treason, Whiskey Dick Mountain, Ocean and K. Clifton. Doors to the show open at 7 pm, and it's FREE to get in. And all-ages. We'll see you there!
