The Sword, Big Business, Oh Brother, The Hop, Spokane, Washington, March 15, 2014 Finally, a show at The Hop! I have heard about this club for a while now and they are doing their part to keep the punk, metal, underground rap and more vital to the area. This was a busy evening for myself,… Continue reading

Here I am again, at The Knitting Factory, after work, at the show a bit early so I can take my time and enjoy a solid meal and tasty beverage in the nice bar attached to the concert venue. I order off their recently updated menu and enjoy a decent, but not the best burger… Continue reading

Buckcherry, Knitting Factory, Spokane, Washington

I have been waiting YEARS to see Buckcherry live in concert. It dates back from my days in California when they showed up, I believe, in their infancy, at the Boardwalk in Orangevale to play a show. For one reason or another, I have missed them in California and in Washington (they have come through town… Continue reading

Living Colour, Vial 8, Knitting Factory, Spokane, WA, 10/19/13 Living Colour is one of those bands that I have always wanted to see, so you could call this a bucket list moment. Living Colour was celebrating 25 years since their first release, “Vivid” and they played the entire album that night along with classic tracks… Continue reading

What can you say about a legend that hasn’t already been said before? Sammy Hagar has been a consistent, hard rocking man forever and we are so fortunate to live in a time with such a talented musician that shares his gifts to the world, all the while doing it for 4 decades with enthusiasm,… Continue reading

Killswitch Engage, Miss May I, Darkest Hour, The Word Alive | June 28, 2013 | Knitting Factory, Spokane, WA

Published on: Author: TODD Leave a comment

It’s been many years since I last saw Killswitch Engage perform on stage. The last time they came through Spokane, WA, I was relatively new the area and simply freaked out about driving in the snow to see a show. I had purchased tickets and the whole nine yards but didn’t see the risk was… Continue reading

Machine Head, The Nixon Rodeo, Seven Cycles, June 24, 2013, Knitting Factory, Spokane, WA

Published on: Author: TODD Leave a comment

I believe the opening acts to this show were a last minute fill in since this tour seemed to just be getting off the ground and it was almost a practice run before Machine Head releases the next album to their arsenal. Both opening bands are local talent and quite boring considering who the headliners… Continue reading

Oh, blessed event, the concert was on a Saturday night! That seems to be a rarity these days with many of the shows I attend in Spokane. First band up was Thirion. Not a memorable sound but the lead singer looked like one of my best friends in Redding, CA, which cracked me up! Hard… Continue reading
