We just realized something. The Inlander's office is literally in the heart of Spokane's local music scene. Every night of the week, there's live music happening right around us — and this year, we decided we want in on it. We're throwing a block party.
For the past three years, we've thrown a one-night local music extravaganza on one big stage — and it was awesome. But we want more.
This year, in conjunction with our Local Music Issue, we're throwing a one-night festival on Friday, June 1 with THIRTY FIVE bands playing — including this years Inlander Bands to Watch.
For a five-dollar wristband, you get to run in and out of six downtown venues all night, seeing as many of those 35 bands that you want.
Totally worth it.
We're partnering up with our buddies over at The Stranger to sell wristbands to this event — and you can click here now to buy yours now and pick it up the night of the show.
Tonight we're kicking off the block party with our FREE VOLUME PRE-PARTY at Mootsy's. That's when we'll announce the bands that we chose as this years Bands to Watch, too. And we'll let you in on a little secret: there's more than last year. Join us tonight at about 8 pm for performances by Ultra Peach, BBBBandits, Tomten (from Seattle) and Mirror Mirror.
Holy shit. This is going to be fun. Are you ready?
**Our block party will have several all-ages shows, but some venues will require a 21-and-over ID for entrance.
