Crosscut Live: Seattle vs. Spokane – Conversations across the Cascade Divide

January 24 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Is living in Seattle all it’s cracked up to be? Can Spokane serve as a creative utopia?

Join us on January 24th at Hale’s Palladium for a conversation with artists, writers and comedians from Spokane — and Seattle — debating the pros and cons of forging a creative life in an urban vs. rural landscape.

Our inaugural Crosscut Live series delivers journalism and stories to the stage in an animated, casual setting with live music, videos and libations.


Knute Berger – Crosscut’s Mossback, Berger was born and raised in Seattle and writes with his own Pacific Northwest perspective. He was a writer-in-residence at the Space Needle and has a cocktail named after him at Ivar’s. You can read his column on Crosscut.com and see the popular “Mossback’s Northwest” series on KCTS 9.



Jess Walter & Danny Westneat – Lifelong friends — a journalist and an author — debate the lifestyle, politics, growth and culture of Seattle and Spokane.

Harry Riley & Emmett Montgomery – Seattle- and Spokane-based comedians review each others’ cities with hilarious results.

Whitney Mongé & Kate Lebo– A singer/songwriter and a poet/pie-maker dissect the pros and cons of the two creative communities.
