The B Sharp Coffee House is all about local flavor

October brought blustery winds carrying a chill in the air that announced Fall had finally arrived. The very idea leaves me dancing a celebratory jig, because Fall means hats, scarves, boots and hot cups of roasted bean accompanied by baked goods. Thankfully, October also introduced Tacoma's Triangle District to the B

Seattle's Tangerine pull off a wondrous balancing act

The first time I heard of Tangerine, it was from Jeff Southard over at Swoon Records. Southard was glowing over his experience with a Seattle band that had just come over to his studio to record their debut EP, which they cranked out over two days. This, mind you, from

Theater Review: Painful echoes of "American Roulette"

As I write this, there have already been 18 school shootings in America this year, with 17 deaths and 22 injuries. That's not counting Dec. 14, 2012 in Newtown, Conn., where Adam Lanza killed 27 people plus himself. His victims were shot between 3 and 11 times. Most were first-graders.
