CRITICS' PICKS: You Are Plural, VIII Days Clean, DB & The Struggle, The Lovely Bad Things

YOU ARE PLURAL >>> Friday, July 8 The music of You Are Plural is so immediately, vibrantly engaging that it can be almost jarring. The first song on Hand it Over, the band's debut LP, is a spryly shuddering meeting of strings and bubbling electronic instrumentation that sweeps along the lovely vocals

Ten days of Pride

I guess you could say I was ignorant. See, I lived in a bubble. I grew up with parents that explained sexual orientation as more than a two-way street. I grew up in Olympia, where a man kissing another man is - for the most part - celebrated and treated just

Opposites attract

If you haven't heard of Andrea Trenbeath and James Tucker, you will. Whether you walk by a werewolf growling at you from a wall, or run into some of their planned digital media collaborations, the artistic duo has set out to shake up their own artistic endeavors as well as

Bare-bones painting

I've been keeping up with Susan Christian's career for more than 20 years, and during that time I have watched her art change so gradually that it's like watching a mountain grow. I think she has finally reached her maturity as a painter. Her latest works - simple, bare-bones, abstract

When he's not pounding copper into functional art, vacationing on secret Mexican getaways or blaring sax on stage with local legends the Dirty Birds, Jimmi Davies is working it out with his latest band, Resident Kings. Lucky for us, he had some time to talk about this brand-spanking-new Olympia supergroup. WEEKLY

Bite Us: Mandolin Café redux

The situation at the Mandolin Café has been rocky, flaky and turbulent of late. Since original owner John Morrison stepped away from the day-to-day operations a few years ago, there's been some mismanagement. Quality and service had fallen off, which was a factor in the café's five-day closure in June.

Summer in the city

Released last week, the summer menu for Gordon Naccarato's Pacific Grill is bursting at the flavor seams. Some heartier dishes are replaced by lighter ones, and as expected from Chef Naccarato, creativity abounds. Excellent execution and dish presentation at the hands of Chef de Cuisine Jessica Armstrong-Sewell and Sous Chef

If I may, here is a slightly ridiculous comparison: Girl Trouble and their surrounding entities are the Coppolas of Tacoma awesomeness.
