Saturday, Oct. 19: Maltoberfest 8: Menace II Sobriety

"For an event that pretty much takes the worst elements you could possibly combine together," says Craig Egan, "we've had surprisingly little amount of trouble." Egan is speaking about his annual take on Oktoberfest, called Maltoberfest. It doesn't take much detective work to figure out that Maltoberfest celebrates that most dubious

Monday, Oct. 21: Ex-Cowboy

Before folk and bluegrass became a vigorously polished commodity with acts like Mumford & Sons and the Lumineers rising to take over the world, these were genres of lowly real people. These were songs of the masses, honest to a fault, and raggedly charming. Ex-Cowboy is a band that lets

Tuesday, Oct. 22: Posole

On the surface, Posole bear many of the telltale signs of a surf-rock band, but the San Francisco band folds in elements of mariachi and Latin rhythms. Sometimes, they approach the sort of desert rock of groups like Los Lobos, with horns adorning their cinematic narratives. All the while, the

Saturday, Oct. 19: Ang P

Rapper Ang P has been grinding for a more then a minute in Olympia. If you follow the local hip-hop scene and haven't heard his name come up in the past, then you probably don't follow closely. This weekend, Ang will be releasing his new seven-track Chronic and Patron EP

The Rockford Files: Maurice the Fish Records

If you've read The Rockford Files frequently, you've read several times about local record company Maurice the Fish Records. Founded in 2007, Maurice the Fish Records has a variety of goals, including providing its artists with, as its hype proclaims, "a platform in which they can maintain creative control of

Fridays: The Soul Suite

Federal Way is a factor. The home of award-winning writer/artist Clemm Rishad (Grammy Award winner for writing Nicki Minaj songs) and city of residence to former legendary hot spot Cafe Arizona, somehow Fed Way gets lost in the mix of destinations for leisure and gallivanting. Well, the city has, once again, is

The Grand Suggests: "Inequality for All"

In today's economically tumultuous world, there are three main pecuniary/societal systems at play: capitalism, socialism and communism. Each of these economic models promises financial stability and prosperity, but none of them entirely deliver.  Communism and socialism look great on paper, unless that paper happens to be the pages of a

Arbutus Folk School: Turn off the phone and build something

To the best of my knowledge, Arbutus Folk School opening in Olympia Oct. 19 will be the first school of its type in the Pacific Northwest. The school at 600 Fourth Ave. E. will offer classes in such arcane (and common) crafts as Scandinavian knife making, blacksmithing, woodworking, top-bar beehive

Jungle brush and menacing creatures painted in 32 layers of neon paint glow under black light; in the room, a bright orange triceratops, giant hanging insects and David Ostrand's paint-splattered sneakers also glow. "I've gone through four or fives pairs of shoes," laughed Ostrand, owner of Shankz black light mini-golf, arcade

Visual Edge: Aisha Harrison's eerie and engaging sculptures

Picture if you can sculpted figures with the strength and sensuality of a Rodin, but not idealized in any way - realistic sculptures of people who may be a little overweight or less than movie-star beautiful, in natural but perhaps awkward poses with faces that register pain. Now imagine they

Soldiers wed at JBLM Fisher House

Ill and injured servicemembers and their families are often enduring the most difficult days of their lives. To help ease their burden and help their healing, the Joint Base Lewis-McChord Fisher House offers them a place to stay. But it is much more than a hotel. The modest, two-story brick

[METAL] + FRI, OCT. 18 Oh Kylesa, how you reek of sludge and doom, yet co-mingle with the heaven of drums, riffs and vocals hammering down a mighty force of pleasure. How your psychedelia and metal create a blistering twist of emotion on the soul. This is why tens of thousands

Tuesday, Oct. 29: UFOs in the Northwest

You know that awkward moment when you think you know someone - say, an Olympia police sergeant - when all of a sudden he pulls out a grainy photo of a light in the sky (probably created by the camera's own flash) and lectures about UFOs and making contact with

Urban Spelunker: Northeast Tacoma

If you follow the winding roads through Tacoma's industrial district, eventually you'll discover Northeast Tacoma - perhaps the most removed of neighborhoods when it comes to Tacoma's districts. Bordering Federal Way, Fife Heights and Tacoma's downtown, Northeast Tacoma is a fabulous residential area and a stone's throw and short commute

John Simpson: The man, the myth

At a time when many politicians are making questionable choices, one who uses direction and logic is refreshing. "It is not about partisan politics," said retired Air Force Maj. John Simpson. "It is about listening and then taking a common-sense approach to confronting the challenges at hand." Simpson enlisted in the Air
