"Same Time, Next Year" reconvenes at OLT

Two-handers are tough. A two-hander, in theater parlance, is a full-length show with only two characters. I performed one a while back, Oleanna by David Mamet, and I can tell you it nearly broke my brain. There's nowhere to hide. You're on stage the whole time, and you have to

The Rockford Files: Rockin' with the Fishes

Last week The Rockford Files covered the June 2 benefit concert produced by the Fish Food Banks of Pierce County and Maurice the Fish Records at Louie G's Pizzeria. I attended the show that Sunday afternoon, and am gladly here to inform my readers that it was - not surprisingly

Life's a Gamble

When I think about gambling, for some reason the image of bells ringing and sirens blaring as admirers gather to watch me collect my winnings never quite pops into my head. In my wildest fantasies, I still either end up destitute or out in the alley, getting kicked to death

Olympia Meat Collective

We've all heard the horror stories of what happens in the mainstream meat market: the pink slime chicken nuggets, E.coli outbreaks and cruelty to animals - just to name a few of the monstrosities. What if we could do something at a local level to change that? This is the idea behind Olympia

New food at Cheney Stadium

Aromas of hotdogs, peanuts and popcorn wafts through the air. Hats, shirts, mitts and more are emblazoned with the same logo and color schemes in an effort to visually root for the home team in unison. There's a buzz in the air, and the energy of a whole group of people

The macrocosm of Malaikat Dan Singa

If Arrington de Dionyso's Malaikat Dan Singa is a mouthful of a name, then his music does well to invade every other one of your senses. For years, de Dionyso has been making a name for himself as one of the premier practitioners of experimental music in the Northwest. Unlike

Music Critics' Picks: Tommy Dean, Broken Water, Sweet Water, Memory Boys

[FOLK] + FRI, JUNE 7 What Tiny Tim was for Tin Pan Alley-era singers, Tommy Dean is for rambling folk of the '50s and '60s. Like Tiny Tim, Tommy Dean is a self-stylized revivalist, an encyclopedia of long-forgotten tunes. He's a jukebox - pop a quarter in him and he'll go.

Down under at the Museum of Glass

Little known to most Americans, there is a glass art movement in Australia that developed alongside the similar glass art movement in our area going back to the 1970s, spurred by artists from Pilchuck and the Bullseye Glass Company in Portland. "The connections between Australia and the Pacific Northwest are

5 frozen yogurt shops in Pierce County

In the golden era of my youth, when I was about 7 years old, my parents and I frequented the delicious, bison-serving Ruston landmark Tatanka Take-Out. Tatanka is famous for its lean and tasty bison meat, which is applied liberally to burgers, burritos and sandwiches, but my 7-year-old, sweets-loving self

Lucky Day: "Bonedraggers EP"

It was a clear day at Owen Beach, and I was sitting on the sidelines with my back turned away from the sand and the sunbathers and toward the green and rising peaks of Vashon Island when Simon Williams asked me a question, "Have you heard it yet?" Simon Williams, being

"Laramie Project": Important story, well told

On Oct. 6, 1998, two Laramie men, Russell Henderson and Aaron McKinney, offered 21-year-old Matthew Shepard, openly gay, a ride home from a bar called the Fireside Lounge. They drove him outside of town, beat him with fists, pistol-whipped him, tied him to a shake fence and left him to
