FRIDAY

It’s one of those nights when the Baby Bar/Neato Burrito is sure to be packed to the gills. Tonight’s super Washington punk lineup features Seattle-based Pony Time (listen to their new single “Really Nice Guys” right here) and Wimps (read our preview story on them here) along with some of Spokane’s favorites, 66beat and Phlegm Fatale. It’s going to get crazy. Show up at 9 pm for the free 21+ show.

Celebrate hip-hop’s uplifting side over at the Hip-Hop 4 Hope event at nYne, featuring Seattle’s Yodi Mac along with King Kuzey, Purpose and Kosh. The show is a fundraiser for inner city youth and begins at 8 pm. $5 cover at the door but donations are accepted.

SATURDAY
Folk music isn’t going anywhere and Saturday’s lineup at Jones Radiator proves that with Southern singer-songwriter Daniel Amedee taking the stage. Local folksters Feral Anthem also perform, as do the Seattle-based ska group Bad Koala. Start time is 9 pm, supposedly. 

The Big Dipper brings in some favorite local talent with Cursive Wires, the Bight and Goodnight Venus. Be sure to bring your dancing shoes for the CW set, they’ll have you two-stepping in no time. The show is all-ages is $6 and begins at 7:30pm.

SUNDAY
Huey Lewis and the News used to be huge. They had 19 Top 10 hits, and their 1983 album Sports sold more than 10 million copies in America. They bring all of that old coolness to the Northern Quest Casino Sunday along with the Eddie Money. Oh yes. The show starts at 7:30 pm and tickets start at $35.
LOOK AHEAD
Next week, look for Biters at the Pin on Wednesday and Melvins at the Bartlett on Thursday. Also, Pig Out in the Park kicks off Wednesday with Sammy Eubanks.
