It’s always the worst when you’re forced to chose between two great shows. This evening, Chewelah native and soulful crooner Allen Stone and Seattle grunge/punk pioneers Mudhoney come through downtown Spokane. Who scheduled these shows for the same night? Ack! BUT if you don’t already have Mudhoney tickets, the decision is made for you as that Bartlett show is completely sold out. Allen Stone tickets are still available at the Knitting Factory’s website. Click on the following links to read our preview stories on Stone and Mudhoney.
Local singer-songwriter Sarah Cameron possesses the kind of youthful innocence of Taylor Swift, before T-Swift graduated to songs like this. Cameron, 22, releases her new CD, Daydream, at the Big Dipper Saturday night. The EP features many a song about relationships with boys, even Jesus. The show starts at 7 pm and is $5.
Back for another frightening year is the Halloween Cover Show, which takes local bands who normally play original music and turns them into really famous bands for one night only. Saturday, Losing Skin become Misfits, Cold Blooded pulls off the Ramones, Reason For Existence plays Sublime, Xingaia does video game covers, Deaf To is Breaking Benjamin and Saxeus is Alice In Chains. This all-ages show goes down at the Hop! starting at 6:30 pm and is $7. (Note: There is no Halloween Cover Show at Mootsy's Friday night)
Sunday nights are often a time of rest and relaxation getting ready for the work day ahead. OR you could go to a punk show and start your week off right. The Viking brings in Oh Snap!, Poke Da Squid and Lust for Glory for just that. Headliners Oh Snap! recently released an EP Drunk Pop Punk! that is absolutely ridiculous. Enjoy. The 21+ show is free and starts at 7 pm.
