Christmas in March

Music

Christmas in March

For major recording artists, Christmas albums are practically a requisite. It's like that old saw about opinions and a**holes - everyone's got one, even Bob Dylan, Annie Lennox and Air Supply. Understandably, the DIY music world steers clear of such nakedly commercial wintertime cash-ins, but Christmas, nonetheless, stands as a

Angels and artists

The Nightgowns do SXSW

If we really wanted to, as a town, we could band together and make sure the Nightgowns would remain Tacoma's "best kept secret." We could shield them from the outside world, ensuring that only we would know the strange power their synth-pop possesses. We could dote on them and come

The breakup band

If I may ... terrible breakups and lovers' quarrels within bands have inspired some of the greatest music of all time. We're talking about Fleetwood Mac's Rumors. We're gonna mention some 16 Lovers Lane by the Go-Betweens. We're gonna stretch things a great deal and include the Beatles' Let it

BITE US: Bagel Boyz are all the rage

More and more often, when I ask who supplies the bagels at a local café or coffee shop, the answer is Bagel Boyz. Last fall a barista at Clancy's almost peed himself in excitement when telling me it would be only a matter of days before the

THREE QUESTIONS with Bobble Tiki: Where Sails Meet Rails

OK, OK - Bobble Tiki gets it. He's been a complete bum lately. Like Skippyjon Jones, maybe Bobble Tiki's been lost in spice - only the "spice" was actually booze, various other intoxicants, and copious amounts of self-loathing?
