Live Bands

Down North, Wax N Drums, The Tone Collaborative

When: Wed., Feb. 26, 9 p.m. 2014

Listen to Down North’s “Heartbreaker” and try to resist the urge to wiggle your feet, flip your hair and scream/sing “whoo!” along with vocalist Anthony Briscoe. You can’t do it. This Seattle four-piece plays a sort of funky rock that gets into your brain and gets you moving. The music harkens back to the groove of the ’70s, and you might catch a pinch of James Brown in their sound. Rolling through Spokane next Wednesday, their show will be nothing but one big, funky dance party.
