WEDNESDAY READING: This dude named Tony

In 2002, while Duff, Slash, Matt and Dave were trying out every human possible to front their as yet unnamed rock n' roll extravaganza that would become Velvet Revolver, I was playing next door in the same three room complex (called MATES) in a band consisting of myself, Christian (the

GUTTERMOUTH >>>Friday, Jan. 22 You already know Guttermouth. I don't need to describe the band. I don't need to tell you about the purposefully offensive antics, the three chords, or probably even the band's Orange County roots. I don't need to tell you the band is old as sin, and you could

East Asia Market

If I had to pick a favorite food genre, Asian cuisine would right up there. It has everything I love: noodles, tofu, vegetables and lots and lots of salt! The only thing missing is cheese, which is why it will never be my absolute number one. Also, ingredients for Asian

From Robyn's Nest to The Villa Caffe and Imbibery

Located on Market Street in downtown Tacoma, nestled quietly beneath the colorful Villaggio Apartments lays a gateway to an alternative to Tacoma's commercial nightlife. The Villa Caffe & Imbibery is a discreet little coffee house and bar that opened last week across the street from the Bicentennial Pavilion. The Villa

Murderers in Olympia

They'd none of 'em be missed. So sings Ko-Ko in Gilbert & Sullivan's Mikado - and the house music to Olympia Little Theatre's droll production of Murderers, which closes this weekend. Co-directors Toni Holm and Kathryn Beall (with an assist from AD Julia VanDerslice) do a fine job of punctuating Jeffrey Hatcher's

So you want to record a record

Once your band has been together for a while, after you've worked up a bit of material, the next logical step is to put it all on record. But it's a big and kind of scary step. Even at relatively cheap studios, you're going to be throwing down a

The Kids Design Glass exhibition at Museum of Glass should not be reviewed in any critical way. It should, however, be applauded with gusto. This is a delightful show and a wonderful program.

SLOUCHING TOWARD UTOPIA: Conscious alienation

As artists, we often cordon ourselves off from the world in the name of creativity. It's easy to do - to pass off our own, deeply ingrained alienation as some sort of heroic individualism. When contrasted against the sort of pap that passes itself as "community", or "leisure," the dandyism

What do you see?

You've seen one. If you're lucky enough to have been psychoanalyzed at length, you may have seen plenty of them. A Rorschach Test. The inkblot thing - "Look at this image and tell me what you see, feel, sense. ..." A butterfly? A bullwhip? A butthole? A bag

Choose your adventure

No matter how jaded I sometimes feel about music, there's always something that comes along and takes me completely by surprise. I think the last thing to have that effect on me was St. Vincent - known for jarringly jumping back and forth from pop to folk to crunchy space-funk.
