All this week, Behind the Setlist is covering Volume, a music festival in Spokane, Washington, which features 100 DIY and indie artists from the Pacific Northwest and beyond (put together by our friends at the Inlander).

Our Spokane team—Kevin Carr and Rose Hammack—will be on the ground May 31 and June 1, catching as much music as humanly possible.

Check back often for previews, reviews, interviews and more.
