Landscapes so bright you'll need shades

I went with my wife to see Don Tiller's paintings at Childhood's End Gallery. She loved them, raved about them. I thought they were pretty good, but I was not as excited as she. Tiller is a landscape painter from Port Townsend. I suspect his work sells very well with the

Self contained music festival

  Despite an impressive resume and discography some critics feel Texas-born performer Jolie Holland has failed to find the audience she yielded as a member of the folk outfit The Be Good Tanyas and her early solo career. In a candid Denver Westworld article the singer joked, "I've done a good

To praise with faint damnation

After watching three professional plays at Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, my wife and I traveled six hours to catch the opening night of Night Must Fall at Olympia Little Theatre. As she drove, we dialed our expectations down. Community theater, including OLT, can and should be inconsistent in quality.

>>> Friday, Nov. 9 BARLEYWINE REVUE Barleywine Revue credits itself simply as a bluegrass band, but to hear it, the band somehow transforms that format into something more.
