Zeahorse arrives from Australia's weird grab bag

It should be obvious that it's a dumb idea to stick an entire country with one label. As we know in the U.S., there are marked areas that have their own flavor and eccentricities. Still, as a young man engaging with music in an increasingly untenable valley of sonic experiences,

[SINGER-SONGWRITER] + SAT, OCT. 4 House concerts - those intimate shows where people open their homes to musicians, friends and strangers for an intimate show like no other - are a regular occurrence these days. The trend got its start in 1997, when singer-songwriters Elizabeth Hummel and Cindy Lee Berryhill embarked

Theater Review: Clybourne Park at Harlequin Productions

I think it'd be tough to argue Clybourne Park isn't one of the best-written scripts we've seen in years. It won the Pulitzer, the Tony, and the Society of London Theatre's Olivier Award. Playwright Bruce Norris does an exceptional job of allowing characters to talk themselves into conflicts far deeper

The careening crash of The Jesus Rehab

It's a cliché, at this point, that there is no counting for taste. This much is true. Still, for many parents, out there, there is still the urge to mold the minds of their children, so that their musical taste may pass down through the generations. And so, we have

Comic Strippers, magic memories

My undergraduate alma mater hosts a yearly offering called "Mr. ECU," in which male competitors vie for cash and prizes by stripping to their undies. One year Barbara, queen of the snobbiest sorority on campus, hailed me at an event the month prior to Mr. ECU. I didn't know Barbara

Jennifer Johnson is a good friend of mine, dare I say one of my besties. When I asked her for a tip on a good mobile food vendor in Tacoma, without any hesitation, she declared, "Philly This!"  Now, seeing as how she has been a food columnist off-and-on for 73 years,

Theater Review: Theater Artists Olympia brushes up its Shakespeare

You'd be amazed how hard it is to find genuinely funny play scripts these days. A few decades ago, it seems to have dawned on budding Neil Simons that the real money's in TV, and off they went, never to return. So when, in 1987, three American dudes brought their
