This is it people, just one last weekend to experience the best season, summer. These shows will certainly help you celebrate well.
The Bartlett has a secret show tonight. Well, it’s not exactly secret because it's right on the front of their website, but that's OK. The free show's lineup is cool: Dead Serious Lovers and Scott Ryan, who recently released a new single (see below). RSVP for the 8 pm show here.
Scottie Feider and Tyler Aker, roommates and bandmates in Pine League, take their more intimate act to LeftBank Wine Bar tonight. The show is free, the wine drinking is not.
The Baby Bar/Neato Burrito brings in the Kansas City rockers Nature Boys Saturday. Opening for their show are local acts Loomer (check out their sweet new EP here) and Heavy Seventeen. The show starts at 10 pm and is free.
For anyone disappointed that Gregg Allman canceled his Spokane show in July, Gov't Mule — known simply as the Mule to fans — could almost fill that void. The group began as a side project for Allman Brothers Band guitarist Warren Haynes and bassist Allen Woody, continuing their similar Southern blues-rock, jam-band flavor while adding a harder sound. Woody passed away in 2000, but the group continued on. They come through Riverside Place (aka the old Masonic Temple) Saturday as part of their 20 Years Strong tour, plugging their upbeat 10th studio album Shout!, released last September. Tickets for the all-ages show range from $35 to $100. Be there by 8 pm.
Through her dark and haunting charm, Orenda Fink of dream-pop duo Azure Ray uses her power as a solo artist to explore life, death, consciousness and subconsciousness, says music intern Molly Smith. The Alabama native released her third album, Blue Dream, last month, prompting a tour that stops at the Big Dipper. Mysticism inspires her musical expression, ensuring that her live performance will be a spiritual experience. The all-ages show is opened by the Holy Broke and Matthew Winters, is $10 the day of and starts at 7:30 pm.
Il Sogno Del Marinaio may be a mouthful for those who aren’t Italian speakers, but the name Mike Watt should ring a bell. Check out the bassist's newest group when they roll through the Hop! Sunday at 8 pm. The all-ages show is $10. Read our story here.
