Wildest child

A minute into "Finger," the opening track on Melted, the fourth solo record by Ty Segall, an amplifier obliterates the song's initial mellowness with an ungodly squeal, and an enormous wall of distortion swallows everything whole. In headphones, it's a tinnitus-tempting tidal surge - both ears are flooded with riotous

Oh, nothing feels better to me than those rare instances when I get to act like a DJ. It happened recently at a friend of a friend's birthday party. Plugging my iPod into the speakers, carefully choosing what song to play next, my heart racing as the end of the

So, Oktoberfest isn't official over until the end of this weekend, but it's really quite over for me. I needed to shake-off the sauerkraut and gut busting brats for something that reminded me of vacation. I haven't been on a real vacation in over two years, and at this rate,

An OFT bromance

There are elements I've come to expect from Olympia Family Theater: technical polish, figurative costumes, jokes for adults and, above all, an auditorium full of gleeful kids hopping in their seats.  OFT and director Jenny Greenlee continue that reliable tradition with a reprise of A Year with Frog and Toad.

Joell Ortiz, a longtime indie-rap darling, is quickly garnering a reputation as one of the best emcees in hip-hop. Tacoma's best rap group (as deemed recently by the Weekly Volcano), City Hall (Todd Sykes and EvergreenOne), is buzzing in the Northwest and beyond after the recent release of their first

The Musée National Picasso in Paris is closed for renovations and their huge collection of drawings, paintings and sculptures by Pablo Picasso is going on a world tour - first stop, Seattle Art Museum. Never before have so many works by the master been on display in America, and we

What's one word between friends?
