Live Bands

Copper & Congress

When: Tue., Oct. 28, 8 p.m. 2014

The Checkerboard Bar may be a little off the beaten path (i.e.: not downtown Spokane) but the classic live music venue is well worth the short drive out, serving up an inspired mix of local and touring acts and a huge selection of liquor. On Tuesday, Tucson, Arizona’s Copper & Congress brings its retro-flavored soulful rock to the joint. Fronted by Katie Haverly’s soulful, silky croon, the trio’s tunes slowly smolder, building to emotional heights. Expect the band to throw in a little improvisation, a side effect of playing with a jazzy flair, we suppose. Their LP Fault Line came out last month.
