Voices at odds

The indie rock boom of the early-to-mid ‘00s were a wild time. No one was quite sure just where the wind was blowing, in terms of stylistic trends and general demeanor. The garage rock revival was in full swing, LCD Soundsystem was digging through crates of ‘70s vinyl obscurities, Arcade

Tacoma eagerly anticipated the grand opening of Sixth Ave. haunt, Fish, Fish, Fish. We waited, and we waited, and then one day it had finally arrived only to close its doors for renovation shortly thereafter. Since then, we've seen some action just behind the curtain and we can celebrate once

The Pillowman strikes again

One of the more fascinating theater-going moments I had in 2018 was seeing the audacious, sprawling, challenging production of The Pillowman at Tacoma Little Theatre. The pitch-black comedy about a fairytale writer being imprisoned by a totalitarian government proved to be, by all accounts, divisive among the TLT audience, some

A weekend-long celebration of cinema

Boy, Tacoma sure does have an embarrassment of riches when it comes to film festivals, huh? In the fall, as we're ramping up to prestige movie season, we have the Tacoma Film Festival. Then, at the end of winter, in the lead-up to the Academy Awards, the Destiny City Film

The red carpet awaits

The first Academy Awards were presented May 16, 1929, in the ballroom of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. Nowadays, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences claims its televised ceremony attracts a billion viewers. That's nonsense, of course; a study by The Hollywood Reporter found worldwide viewership was probably fewer

Political sloganeering aside, this is not an especially patriotic time in the good ol' U.S. of A. Last Fourth of July, an annual Gallup poll found only 47 percent of Americans to be proud of their nationality. In the 18 years this poll has been conducted, it's the first time

As I write this now, my socks are soggy, and my toes are cold right down to the core. I was underprepared for this foreign snow and slush that has invaded the South Sound but was desperate to escape my cabin fever. I think I had lost my marbles a

Snow Day sips and stops

ANNOUNCER: Whether you call it "snowmageddon," "snowpocalypse," or just enough snow to matter, one thing is certain, the Sound Sound is losing their damn minds. Before the white stuff started to give the ground a proper dusting, the hordes were in a panic, swiping every loaf of bread and stalk

How long is it reasonable for a one-person band to stay a one-person band? Is there a threshold an artist reaches where they've had enough of their albums being described as "homespun," and so decide to take the all-important step of getting the band together? Folks like Iron and Wine,

Nonstop showstoppers

There are few names as synonymous with musical theater as Andrew Lloyd Webber. For decades, Webber has balanced artistic moxie with an unabashed crowd-pleasing mentality in such a successful way that it's likely many people's first exposure to musicals was through one of his shows. Consider what a monumental career

Three Easy Pieces

It's time, again, for Three Easy Pieces, the column where I examine a pocket of pop culture, from its birth to today. This month: hangout movies. The definition of a hangout movie is nebulous enough that a great many movies can get assigned this designation, but the basics of the
