Friday, Jan. 30: Y La Bamba

It's not surprising to learn that Y La Bamba's records have been produced by the disparate likes of the Decemberists' Chris Funk and Los Lobos' Steve Berlin. The ornate instrumentation calls to mind the revivalist classicism of the Decemberists, as well as the Latin rock of Los Lobos, but the

Friday, Jan. 30: Golden Gardens

From the cacophonous pounding of the drums that open Golden Gardens' Bellflower EP, you'd be excused for thinking that a Spector-esque wall of '60s sound was coming your way. As it is, that sound almost immediately gives way to a gothic, Nick Cave-esque haze. Churchly piano and '80s synths waft

Saturday, Jan. 31-May 17: "Living In The Shadows: Volcanoes of Washington

On May 18, 1980, at 8:32 a.m., where were you? Memories of the 1980 Mount Saint Helens eruption informs our knowledge of clear and present danger in the shadows of our dragons next door. That fact is made unnervingly clear by a new exhibit in Tacoma's Washington State History Museum. Kudos

Saturday, Jan. 31: Rogues Gallery

If you can say one thing about Rogues Gallery (formerly Jipsea Party), it's that they're clearly devoted to the mad energy of their spectacle. Their gypsy punk is a familiar enough style, but they infuse it with a fervency and a momentum that raises them above some of their other

Super Bowl XLIX eats and drink in the South Sound

I have a bone to pick with Macklemore. Shortly after the Seahawks were crowned NFC champions in 2014, Seattle superstar rapper Macklemore took to the stage with no less than four Grammy wins and a live performance at the 56th annual Grammy Awards. He did not once even utter the phrase,

The dragons next door: volcanoes of Washington

On May 18, 1980, at 8:32 a.m., where were you? If you were living in Washington at the time, chances are you remember your whereabouts all too well, as that was the morning quakes reduced the north face of Mount St. Helens to a cascade of free-flowing rock. The ensuing blast

Y La Bamba shines with the eclectic power of culture

I sometimes feel jealous of those with upbringings that were strongly rooted in tradition. As a child of your standard white parents with no particular ties to religion, all I had to influence my world-view and sensibilities was the passing presence of the ever-morphing popular culture that would beam into

Friday, Jan. 30: Adonis Puentes and the Voice of Cuba Orchestra

The island nation of Cuba lies less than 100 miles from Florida, yet our schism outlasted the Cold War. That's politics. In the real world, culture crosses over.
