Originally planned as an outdoor event, the Big Easy’s Spokane Street Scene Concerts this weekend have been moved back in the main showroom.
The concert series feature on Friday 1980s rockers Tesla along with Papa Roach and local bands Lucid with 10 Minutes Down, and on Saturday night, the Big Easy hosts 1990s alternative rock outfit Collective Soul with Young Dubliners, Roger Cline & The Peacemakers, and local pop-rock band Vertigo Bliss.
Tesla is touring in support of a new album, “Into the Now,” released this spring on Sanctuary Records.
“Into The Now” features the original Tesla lineup of vocalist Jeff Keith, guitarist Frank Hannon, guitarist Tommy Skeoch, bass guitarist Brian Wheat and drummer Troy Luccketta.
During its peak, Tesla’s melodic grit proved commercial successes with its platinum debut, “Mechanical Resonance,” the double platinum “The Great Radio Controversy,” and the platinum “Psychotic Supper.”
Tickets for Tesla are $25.50 each, through TicketsWest outlets ( www.ticketswest.com, 325-SEAT, 800-325-SEAT).
Tickets for Collective Soul also are $25.50, through TicketsWest.
Both all-ages shows start at 5 p.m.
