The 219 is the place to be for music this weekend.

On Saturday, April 28, favorite Inland Northwest musician Marshall McLean and his band members bring their Americana-infused rock to the 219, playing 9 p.m.- 12 a.m. A talented songwriter with a tremendous ability to write evocative, catchy music, McLean has built a reputation as one of the best artists in Spokane, Wash. Be sure to check out McLean’s most recent album, “SoDak,” and the rest of his music on Spotify.

Then Sunday, April 29, catch Smith McKay from 8-11 p.m. at the 219. Jimmy Smith, formerly of famed Austin, Texas, alt-country band The Gourds, teams up with bluesman Pat McKay for a night of music you won’t soon forget.
