THE ROCKFORD FILES: Alex Orozco launches EPdemics

I've always appreciated the physicality of buying music. Going to a record store to buy an album, taking it home and removing the cellophane, then carefully placing the needle before the grooves. ... Yes, I am talking about vinyl - a medium that I'm ironically watching being carried under the

Mea culpa Olympia Family Theater

I'm an actor and director myself, so my job spawns its share of awkward moments. Over the last three years, I've reviewed the work of friends, respected colleagues, and folks who've been unkind to me. I've done my best to turn an equal critical eye on everyone. I believe in

Two Tacoma beer joint gems

What the heck is a hidden gem, anyway? The phrase rises from the mist of culinary cliché, a cheery, primordial beast eager to swallow any eye-opening South Sound dining experience that wanders unchained out of our delicious routine. It's hard to lift a fork around here without poking it into

Behind the band practice pad garage door

For years, local musicians and bands have struggled to find safe, secure, moderately sound-proofed, and remotely comfortable rooms in which to rehearse. The carpet-padded garages, busy storage units, blanket-lines laundry rooms and drafty backyard tool sheds - band practice spaces come in all shapes and sizes. Practice spaces can be mysterious

Positively 34th Street

What do you want from a Christmas play? If you're like most people, you want sparkly lights, a jolly Saint Nick with a real beard, tiny tots with their eyes all aglow, and a reminder of the true, commercial-free meaning of Christmas (brought to you by Coca-Cola). If the lobby

Hot stuff at Pierce College

Pierce College has small but outstanding art exhibits on both the Steilacoom and Puyallup campuses. I mentioned the Fall Invitational Exhibition on the Puyallup campus in this column last week, saying that Barlow Palminteri and Becky Knold are both excellent painters. The other two artists in that show are Charles

WHAT'S THE WORD?: NWCZ Radio, Juice radio and Fame Rilla

I want to start off by telling all my readers that NWCZradio.com is a great place to hear local music. For some, listening to the radio on your computer might seem a little strange. What's strange to me is the lack of local music on the AM/FM radio. Why not
