The Rockford Files: Olympia Experimental Music Festival

You're likely to hear lots of noise coming out of Olympia this weekend. While that might not be news to some, the strange sounds emanating from the city will be calculatedly noisy. In its 19th year, the Olympia Experimental Music Festival features bands from near and far who favor experimentalism, texture,

Sunday, June 30: Brian Redman Memorial Poker Tournament and Concert

A stalwart in the Tacoma community - as a musician, bartender and all-around good guy, Brian Redman was killed when he crashed his scooter in September 2009. In the years following his brother's death, Jim Redman and a circle of family and friends have thrown a benefit concert and poker tournament to

Tuesday, July 2: The Raven and the Writing Desk

The Raven and the Writing Desk are about confounding expectations. A six-piece outfit from Denver, the Raven and the Writing Desk's music initially conjures up connections to bands like DeVotchKa (another literary allusion) and Beirut - these purveyors of gypsy-and-otherwise-worldly musical strains. It's notable that the heart of the Raven

Sunday, June 30: The Mormon Trannys

I suppose it's fitting that the Mormon Trannys will be gracing Olympia with their presence on a Sunday. I also suppose there's no way for me to really know if they're actually scorned former members of the Church of Latter Day Saints, like they claim, but what is utterly apparent

Saturday, June 29: Shotgun Kitchen

An almost too obvious entry point for the kind of satirical Americana of Shotgun Kitchen would be their spiritual forefather, John Prine. Just as Prine had a tendency to almost undermine salient points in his songs by making stoned-out, hallucinatory jokes about chasing rainbows down the street and nonchalantly tossing

Back to Beale Street Blues 2014 championships

Beale Street in Memphis, Tenn. is rich with history. From the early 1900s through the '40s, it was swinging - every club and restaurant was filled with solemn saxophone, upbeat piano, gritty, soulful voices and even the occasional jug band. Jazz artists were fusing with blues legends like B.B. King, Muddy Waters and Louis Armstrong to help

Tunes and new shoes

The significant one is into Nike shoes. Which is interesting to me, a person who needs the stability received from what I fondly refer to as “Franken-boots” — New Balance running sneaks I get at South Sound Running on Pacific Avenue. The two of us, on a rare weekend in Seattle,

My Las Vegas

There’s something about the idea of cooking that just brings warm, happy feelings deep into my soul. Sure, the act of eating makes me happy, but when I think of the fun part of the process of cooking — the special gadgets, the flavorful combinations, the time-proven methods and bizarre rituals

The Raven and the Writing Desk confound expectations

In Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll's Mad Hatter poses this riddle: "Why is a raven like a writing desk?" Alice asks for the answer, at which point the Hatter admits that he has no clue what the answer is. Yes, readers said to Carroll, ad nauseam, but what really is the
