Mike Ziegler and his adventures with Unwound

Imagine it's the early '90s. You are young, have an ear for music and love going to and recording shows. You hang on the scene long enough to make friends, start selling merch and next thing you know, you're at roadie status. Fast forward to 2001, after working with the Melvins

THE ROCKFORD FILES: Innocent Bystander

In my never-ending search for new Tacoma music, and my relentless attendance of all-ages shows in the South Sound, I incidentally hear more bands than I can possibly write about. And when presented with such a plethora of music, I can't help but take note of bands I'd like to

"The Children's Hour" at Lakewood Playhouse

Willian Hellman's The Children's Hour is a long play, close to three hours, and its first hour is depressingly boring. Yet it's easy to see how its daring, few-holds-barred script was a Broadway sensation in 1934 - so much so, in fact, that New York state authorities were willing to

Revisiting the Black Panther salute

Forty-five years ago John Carlos and Tommie Smith raised black-gloved fist in the air and the whole world took note. That image remains indelible even today. The event was the Olympics in Mexico City. Smith had won the gold medal in the 200 meter race and Carlos had won bronze.

WHAT'S THE WORD?: Hip-Hop 4 Homeless

I usually do not write about Olympia hip-hop. I like to let my man Nick Leonard cover Oly. That said, I can't let Hip-Hop 4 the Homeless go by without giving it some props. This is by far my favorite Olympia hip-hop event of the year. The whole scene comes

Rockin' Comedy Extravaganza

There is an old expression in show business that goes something like this: "All comedians want to be rock stars, and all rock stars want to be funny." This Friday, the Backstage Bar and Grill and Puddin' Pie Productions melds the two genres with their Rockin' Comedy Extravaganza featuring two bands

Science!

We checked in with Science! asking guitarist and vocalist Justin Stang how he and bandmate Jim Elenteny help keep the music scene alive, why fans play an important role and how Olympia (which Stang calls home, and where Science!'s next show is) measures up in keeping their name on the Northwest

MUSIC CRITICS' PICKS: Elbow Coulee, Dusty 45s, Charlyne Yi, Elvis Birthday Bash, DJ Action Slacks

>>> Friday, Jan. 18 ELBOW COULEE Much has been said (by me, at some times) about how Elbow Coulee sounds like the meeting between pop-punk and dancey synth-rock, but the truth is that the band's range is larger than that. I mean, yeah, lead singer Andrew Tuller's voice does tend to sound

"My Kind Of Place" postcard show

Last year's postcard show at South Puget Sound Community College was a huge success so they're doing it again. This one does not seem quite as good, but maybe it's just that the novelty has worn off. Last year's theme was "Wish you were here," and there were a lot of

A 16-minute improvisational interview with Ryan Stiles

I feel it's safe to assume a majority of people recognizes the name Ryan Stiles. The 53-year-old American born Canadian and current resident of Bellingham has made a prominent name for himself through various TV shows, movies, commercials and live shows. Stiles' most notable roles include the beloved Whose Line
