The economics of love

The history of Tacoma is one filled with unrealized dreams and plenty of disappointment. It's a history of grand visions, and usually not-so-grand realizations. It's a history of struggle, tastes of prosperity and silver linings. It's the history of an underdog. Where Sails Meet Rails. Before it was a band

Every week I make the long trek over the tide flats and up the hill to Twin Lakes/Federal Way. It's an enjoyable drive filled with sawmills, acres of new cars, scrap heaps and landscaping supplies. It's a hell of a lot better than strip malls and fast food joints

WEDNESDAY READING: Part two of Zakk Wylde in Osaka

This was going to be a two part story, but the events leading up to - and just after - Mike Squires' life fearing flight from the Rock Rock bar in Japan are worth a third part epilogue. I went up to Seattle today and got the story straight from

The New Bump and Grind

Like the cat in Schrödinger's famous thought experiment, burlesque exists in a dual state of dialectical uncertainty. It both is and is not theatre. It is and is not performance art. It is and is not subject to criticism. Modern burlesque is both defiantly feminist and old-school objectification, simultaneously reflecting

Garage A Trois

Power Patriot is an excellent example of what I like to think of as "heavy instrumental jazz." The album is jazz/rock/jam supergroup Garage A Trois' first album following the departure of Seattle eight string guitar virtuoso Charlie Hunter.  As a longtime Benevento fan, I personally rejoiced when I heard keyboard player

Theatre people are superstitious. This goes for most artists and even athletes but theatre people are SUPER superstitious. Don't say good luck or call "The Scottish Play" by name in a theatre. And, while not really a superstition, it's at least a well-known and accepted tradition that opening night is not

You know what's lame? In multiple senses of the word? Lower back and hip pain. My point being that I wasn't able to stay at Hell's Kitchen as long as I ought Saturday night, and only managed to see Seattle's Otherwise. And that my brain is fairly disconnected this morning,

SLOUCHING TOWARD UTOPIA: â€"Making it”

OK. Time to ditch the metaphysics of art and get pragmatic for a while. Apparently, "making it" is hot right now. For brevity's sake we'll define "making it" as producing and selling enough work to quit your day job and live off your creations. Most artists harbor this dream, but few

You Can't Take It With You is one of my favorite plays. It wasn't a week ago, which should tell you something about the current Lakewood Playhouse production. It is a show full of characters. Not the way most plays are, but more in the, "He's quite a character" vein. A

When the economy is bad like it is now, most of us have a tendency to shop for a bargain as often as possible. Even when the economy is flourishing (can't remember when that was anymore), many of us still like to find the good deals. So when a very

Can I be real with you for a moment? The Who's halftime show performance was one of the most upsetting things I've witnessed in quite a while. This is a band that defined itself by its outstanding live shows. The band's early days were paved in trashed guitars and vocal

Derek M. Johnson >>> Thursday, Feb. 11 Experimental music is shady territory, in my book - much like abstract art and the pescetarian culture. It often feels to me like the performer either can't play music, or can and simply refuses to. Either way, it can be frustrating. Derek M. Johnson

The current show at Kittredge Gallery features sculptures by Michael Johnson, associate professor of sculpture at University of Puget Sound. Johnson's sculptures are inspired by, but not imitative of, common objects such as bottles and bowls. There is one that looks like a pestle or maybe a butter churn and

How do you decide a good revivalist? What rating system should be applied? Should it be the slight twists, innovations and modernizations that someone like M. Ward brings to the table? Should it be based on the deference for and flawlessness of the replication, like the garage-rock revival strives for?

WEDNESDAY READING: Geoff goes to Japan... again

There are a lot of places in the world I have yet to see. Japan is not one of them. Long before last June, the first time I set foot in most countries of the European Union, I had already been to Japan five times - with three different bands.
