Schlitz, meet schmaltz

I suppose one of the defining traits of legendary talent is that it cannot be reproduced. Thousands of doughy Elvis impersonators later, there's still just one King, and Beatlemania remains a mere echo of the Fab Four. Likewise, there has only ever been, and can only ever be, one Virgina

Veggie vamp

Last I checked Dictionary.com, a vampire was defined as a preternatural being who sucks the blood of humans or animals, and that's a scary concept for youngsters. Luckily, James and Deborah Howe's kid-lit Bunnicula is nothing of the kind. Rather, he's a nocturnal rabbit with teleportation powers who prefers to

WHAT'S THE WORD?: Leezy Soprano, Todd Sykes, Tha Deacon and Knucklehead Banga

It's officially fall and the summer is over. A new season and new music await us. One of the hottest artists this past summer was Leezy Soprano. It looks like fall will be no different. He's hitting it hard with two new videos in September alone! Go to YouTube and

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Olympia theater companies aren't competing with each other (even last weekend, when three different shows opened downtown), they're competing with television. If you're a producer who plans to charge money for tickets to a musical, then it needs to be better

Olympia's Arts Walk happens twice a year, but the fall edition has always been the little sister, bundled up and toting her umbrella, not as glamorous as spring's costumed, sandaled walk.This time around, though, the autumn version of Arts Walk has grown to two days. Waterproof gear is still a

TALLEST TREE >>> Friday, Oct 7 Tallest Tree has been steadily establishing itself as an accomplished indie rock band in these parts since 2009. Taking cues from more math-leaning acts like Built to Spill, as well as the angular freakouts of Modest Mouse and indie touchstones like Death Cab for Cutie, Tallest

Drowning out airplanes

All across the world, but particularly in the Pacific Northwest - and especially in Tacoma - the influence is still felt. The impact of certain bands called the Sonics, the Wailers, the Ventures and others still reverberates. These were groundbreaking bands in the late '50s and early '60s that helped

There's only so much talent can do. Talent abounds in Tacoma Musical Playhouse's production of Little Women. Singing talent in particular. But, well, if there were ever a novel that didn't need to be made into a musical, this would be up there on my list. I'm not a Little Women aficionado, but
