Wednesday, Dec. 24: Community Christmas Eve Candle Lighting

For Christians the world over, Christmas Eve means being trapped for endless hours with the family while listening to Hall and Oates sing Christmas carols. But for everyone else, Christmas Eve is a pony of an entirely different hue. People of all faiths and no faith are invited to celebrate Christmas

You know you're already humming "If I Were a Rich Man" in your head. If you aren't, We are. Once again, Olympia's Capitol Theater screens the classic musical film Fiddler on the Roof Christmas day. But beyond simply watching, you will be immersed in the total If-I-Were-A-Rich-Man experience - you

Friday, Dec. 26: Night After Christmas Dance Party with The Randy Oxford Band

For 12 freakin' years in a row - never wavering - the Randy Oxford Band has encouraged (hell, inspired!) you to get out of the house the night after Christmas and shake some of the tinsel and stuffing off. I t's known as the "Night After Christmas Dance Party."  The

Friday, Dec. 26-Saturday, Dec. 27: "Dr. Lauren's Holiday Bizarre!"

The phrase triple threat, meaning a person who excels at acting, dancing, and singing, is among the most overused in all entertainment. Oh, sure, any number of actors can carry a tune. I've even met trained opera singers who can manage a waltz without requiring emergency

Ever heard tell of "Old Christmas Day?" I hadn't, either. Apparently it took centuries for the West and East to see eye to eye about the day Christ was born. The Western world settled on Dec. 25, of course, while Eastern churches preferred Jan. 6. (They were both wrong. Historians

It's been awhile since we last stumbled into Rhythm and Rye for its Monday night Jazz Lounge Series, mainly because we're leading a lifestyle that discourages partying on days that don't begin with an F or an S. There are, however, many folks whose responsibilities don't begin until late in

Tuesday, Dec. 30: Sassparilla

It's the night before New Year's Eve, and conventional thinking has it that you're going to sit home tonight and go out tomorrow to trip the night fantastic, pop open the Tattinger's, and sing "Auld Lang Syne" in some festive environment as this dreary, war-torn year winds down. But maybe

Visual Edge: Mary Lucier's "Plains of Sweet Regret" at Tacoma Art Museum

Grab a seat in one of the vintage school desks scattered haphazardly about Tacoma Art Museum's spacious Weyerhaeuser gallery and prepare to be immersed in desolate beauty as Mary Lucier's five-channel video installation "The Plains of Sweet Regret" takes you to another time and place not so far away -

Olympia's Wauby usually play plugged-in, sunshiny indie pop, but this Saturday they'll be going acoustic. Still, as much as the vibrancy of their synths will be absent from their Le Voyeur set, there isn't much that can dampen the enthusiasm that Wauby bring to their party. If anything, the acoustic

Saturday, Dec. 20: Trees and Timber

Like Nick Lowe and Elvis Costello, Trees and Timber have a knack for writing perfect pop songs that don't get just get by on production sheen. There's a tactile feel to Trees and Timber that lends weight to songs that are otherwise light as a feather. On their new LP,
