Friday, April 18: Science!

I'm just going to come out and say it. I have a crush on Science! I really do. There is something super endearing about two dudes playing guitars in such depths that it can elicit emotion - sincerity, reflection, angst, and especially happiness. These singer/songwriters are totally cute, they are

Kildjate Moussa Albadé is a singer-songwriter from Tuareg, Niger. He's currently touring through the U.S. under his TisDass moniker. What distinguishes Albadé is his soulful and pristine guitar work. Finger-picking out a melody that slowly insinuates itself into your head, he's content to let that progression ride out and form

April 24: Black Pussy

Formed by Dustin Hill, Black Pussy is a band that leans into the stoner rock label, despite the fact that listening to their music doesn't instantly evoke images of smoke sessions and unbearable jams. Rather, their sound and look is absolutely reminiscent of the '70s and the nascent birth of

Black Pussy are a boozy trip through the 5th Dimension

Portland's Black Pussy are quick to address their name to anyone provoked by it. You see the Rolling Stones' "Brown Sugar" - a frankly kind of odd ode to slavery and interracial sex, though let's continue not thinking about that - was originally supposed to be titled "Black Pussy." Mick

The Swiss Restaurant and Pub in Tacoma turns 21

There's something to be said for being the only one. The outpost, colors snapping in the immaterial breeze, bastion of cool, temple of special. The Swiss Tavern was that, once - 21 years ago, in a galaxy remarkably similar to the one we now inhabit. For those unfamiliar with the terrain,

300 soldiers compete for coveted EFMB at Joint Base Lewis-McChord

Thick green smoke wafted around and over a soldier as he treated a penetrating chest wound on a simulated casualty. Like a Swiss watch, he worked precisely; standing nearby a grader watched with a watchmaker's eye. One mistake could mean the end of the soldier's goal of earning the Expert Field Medical
