My city's weekly alternative newspaper ran an article about the embargo sasquatch puts on its bands preceding the festival a couple years ago. I wish I could remember more about it but i certainly don't think it extends to Canada.
Since you deleted a follow up to this post that I was going to quote, it is interesting that Spokane might be included in the Santa Clause. But in the grand scheme of things, and I mean this as politely as possible, who gives a crap about Spokane?
HaHa I deleted that because I figured that nobody cares about spokane. I mean this as politely as possible, Fuck You.
Post the calender from your favorite venue in your town Shitlips.
Im not saying everything the knitting factory gets is awesome, its not. But I've seen Modest Mouse there three times, Built to spill, Snoop Dogg and Warren G, and tons more i can't remember Japandroids played a different venue in Spokane earlier in the year.
Though spokane doesn't get all the shows i want to see. I go to Seattle to see them, certainly not your broke ass N. Idaho town you have yet to mention. Athol maybe?
