Visual Edge: 1001 Faces at B2 Gallery

I entered the "1001 Faces Exhibition" at B2 Fine Art Gallery with less than stellar expectations, after having been inundated with tribal masks for more than 20-odd years since moving to the Pacific Northwest. But I must say I was pleasantly surprised and even moved by some of the contemporary

Show And Tell

The Power of One: "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom"

Nelson Mandela. That he doesn't require any introduction beyond that is testament enough to his greatness, and I dare not risk disrespecting the man with any of my standard snarky non sequiturs. I'll just say that the story of how Nelson Mandela became the Nelson Mandela whose legacy lives on

Rebecca Lea McCarthy sings the "Diaphragm Blues"

I wish I could review every show, truly, but some intrigue me far more than others. There's no point in writing and publishing a critique of Singing the Diaphragm Blues, as it runs a single weekend, but it sure does sound fascinating. I mean, how many plays offer "chickens, diaphragms,

Washington State Historical Society needs your Pacific Northwest rock ephemera

Sometimes, when I'm drunk in the early morning hours, I'll find myself falling down a rabbit hole of accidentally important live albums - documents of moments in time that are impossible to replicate. I've Never Seen a Straight Banana, for instance, captures a private performance Tiny Tim gave for three

Podcast: Beats and Eats with Ty Ray and Nick Gelso

"Live, from our studios somewhere in cyberspace - it's "Beats and Eats" - a happy hour for your mind," says the announcer, in the style of early radio and TV broadcasting, voice booming over a catchy background jingle. "The virtual lounge is open. So come inside, grab a stool and

Nervosas' combustible post-punk doesn't mess around

If the punk movement was about tearing down the bloated, cliched foundation of popular music, then post-punk was the beginning of the steady rebuilding process. Like all manner of nebulous music terms, post-punk has come to mean a variety of different things to different people. Bands grouped into the post-punk

Music Critics' Picks: Coma Figuram, Broken Water, T-Pain, Lark vs. Owl

[BEDROOM POP] + FRI, MARCH 7 Near as I can tell from what little music is available of Coma Figura, one might describe them as a sort of Foxygen or Titus Andronicus for the bedroom pop set. These are bands that mash together influences and jumble them up into something that
