Northwest Music Scene and the Outdoors

See also

The music culture in the Northwest is heavily influenced by the landscape and weather. Local artists use lyrics about the mountains, wind and rain to keep their songs flowing. The Blue Scholars out of Seattle often mention the "summer in the northwest" as a best kept secret. The grunge era bands that still rock seem to be induced by the dark and gray that covers the sky on the west coast. But other Spokane artists have talked about train rides and snow storms. The Rustics of Spokane talk about riding on a long scenic train ride with the sunlight coming through the pines. They also mention the smell of the west and getting lost in the wide open spaces. I went to a great concert for the Spokane Music Scene on Saturday January 18th 2014. Hey is for Horses a band on the rise based in Spokane includes a few members of Cruxie. Hey is for Horses opened for the Rustics and played their best show to date. It was also the CD release party for the Rustics at the Historic Bing Crosby Theater. Due to the design of the theater the sound is incredible. And every seat in the house has an excellent view. The Rustics now play with a full band that includes a fiddle and some sweet sounding guitar work. Please check out the live performance of the Rustics in the video included with this article.
