Letter from the Editors
Thanks for picking up the latest issue of the Sidekick, Spokane’s most complete arts and entertainment publication. We’re always striving to make this paper even more comprehensive, however, so if you have any ideas, suggestions or comments, as always, feel free and email us at email@example.com to let us know your thoughts.
We’ve added a couple modest feature this issue, beginning with The List, a quick rundown of a few bands, albums and songs – local or otherwise – that we’re currently big on in the Sidekick office. We thought it would be fun to give you a better idea of our musical taste so you have a more suitable feel overall for where our suggestions and picks of the issue are coming from. Plus, if your tastes generally align with ours, maybe you’ll be introduced to some groups or tracks that are worth checking out, at least in our opinion. Turn to page 6 to find this new feature.
We’re also introducing Nunchuck: The Ninja Squirrel as our official mascot. An anonymous reader sent us a stuffed squirrel with button eyes the other day which, while confusing the hell out of the other people in the Post Office, really cracked us up, so we’ve named him Nunchuck and we’re putting him to good use with a new feature that’s explained in full on page 19.
Otherwise you’ll find an updated edition of what you’ve come to expect out of the Sidekick, an often sarcastic, occasionally informative slew of articles on upcoming music events in the first half of the paper, a calendar spread for easy reference over the middle couple pages and a number of features, sports, theatre, film and food reviews scattered throughout the back.
Thanks for all your support. We started this publication partly to show how healthy the Inland Northwest’s local arts and entertainment scene truly is and the collaboration and support we’ve received has only strengthened our conviction. Go team.
