Rainier Arts Festival

Unlike Andrea Brannon, when I look out my living room window, I see a mini-storage and the back end of a multiplex. What does Andrea Brannon see outside her window? Mostly “trees and birds,” she says. And, oh yes, there’s also an enormous mountain nearby. Artist Andrea Brannon, who lives and

Strike a pose

While Natasha’s been hawking Bravo’s “Top Chef,” I’ve been tuning into “Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style,” which actually led me to a fairly drastic decision this week: I cut most of my long hair off. Previously, my flaxen hair fell to just above my booty, but I decided that change was

Monday, July 29: Mothrider

It's gotta be said: when it comes to bringing some much-needed stage presence to the act of being a performing DJ, Mothrider is about as compelling as they come. Perpetually hidden beneath a sort of black and white super-villain mask (or maybe the kind of face that would've been super-saturated

100th Monkey Party

Tacoma’s 100th Monkey parties have been held in many varied places over the years — industrial, creative, organic, eclectic, inspiring. The final Monkey party of 2007 was held at Tacoma Art Museum.

Hodgepodge

Tacoma’s newest gallery, The Helm, opened with a burst of adolescent bravado in a show the gallery owners admit includes a lot of “crappy” art. You see, they didn’t pick the work. They didn’t eliminate submissions they thought were bad. They sent out invitations to artists from all over the

Friday, July 26: Bandolier

Pop aficianados Bandolier boast enough bubbly orange sunshine in their sound to propel their motor scooters sans power. A blend of dancey keyboards with the pop vocal layering of traditional songwriting from the 1960s - well, yeah, that's pretty much the story here. Pop as pop can be songcraft, a

Friday, July 26: Old Age

My first exposure to Old Age took me by surprise. The opening, titular track of their latest release, Rain Won't Ever Come, begins with a ragged lead vocal surrounded on all sides by boozy oohs and la las. The track is slightly reminiscent of the Beatles' "Don't Let Me Down,"

Buffalo invades Olympia

Olympia Little Theatre opened its season with “Moon Over Buffalo,” a quick-witted and saucy comedy by Ken Ludwig that brings the world of back east Buffalo, N.Y., to the West Coast. Set in the 1950s, the innuendo and slapstick-filled show centers on the world of George (played by Tom Sanders) and
