Elkfest

Elkfest is an annual music and neighborhood festival that takes place in the Brownes Addition neighborhood of Spokane, Wash. The three day festival features many local bands, but one of the big draws this year was Down North, from Seattle, who closed day two of the festival on Saturday with their high energy soul music. For over an hour, they had festival goers dancing and cheering, and had to come back to stage for an encore. They were preceded by local band Folkinception, who also had people dancing in front of the stage. Folkinception had the crowd singing along with one of their signature songs “Weed and Whiskey” at the end of their set.

Here are a couple of photos from Saturday evening at Elkfest for @theinlander. Also here is a brief video clip of Down North. A slideshow with more photos is at http://m.inlander.com/spokane/new-slideshow/Slideshow?oid=2794480
