Live Bands

Atlas Moth, Rasputin, Diazepam, Over Sea Under Stone

When: Tue., March 4, 6:30 p.m. 2014

Around this time last year, Chicago post-metal outfit The Atlas Moth posted online that they would stop in Spokane for a last-minute show — and the hesher elite rallied the troops and threw the guys a great time. When that happens, awesome bands come back here knowing that Spokane is a remarkable place to play. The Atlas Moth has been said to be “militantly adventurous” in their experimentation — drawing from both doom and blues to create a sound that is theirs alone. It’s just as much black metal with a groove as it is rock music with a bloody edge. It’s weird and creepy and totally familiar all at once. Kind of like Spokane. Maybe that’s why they liked us so much.
