WHAT'S THE WORD?: Year of the crew

Think back to 2010. Darxiide was perhaps the biggest underground local hip-hop crew making street music. But in 2011, Darxiide was noticeably absent from the scene. They took the year off to regroup and slim down their roster. The head of Darxiide has always been and still is Sic Ill. Like

QUESTION: I'm a retired pastor in my 50s. A nearby church wanted my help with their Christmas musical, and I asked my wife of five years, who played bass at my church, to join me. She became angry at this suggestion and said I should do my own thing on

Ask Amy

Boy meeks girl Recently, you wrote about “female flirting moves recognized across cultures” — smiling, making eye contact and looking away, toying with hair or objects, and touching a guy’s arm. I disagree about them being “recognized.” Female employers have made eye contact and even smiled, but that didn’t mean they

Friday, Jan. 13: Pukesnake

So the band's called Pukesnake, and they craft songs with names like "Bird Funeral" and "Rainbow in the Toilet." I wish I could just give you that information and let you disseminate it however you wish, but I'm required to tell you a little bit more. Pukesnake is some kind

Friday, Jan. 13: Aaron Daniel

I've raved about Aaron Daniel before. I've trumpeted his skill and uber-unique style. I've urged one and all to see the mastery of Daniel and his "One Man Banned" live and in person. Friday at Olympia's Royal Lounge, you'll get another chance to do just that - and those searching

Monday, Jan. 16: Big Eyes

How absurdly catchy is Big Eyes? Thanks for asking. VERY. The band is VERY catchy. Something about the driving guitars and the rough female vocals make Big Eyes something more than just a run of the mill, good garage rock act. Elements of the Breeders and even the Ramones run

Thursday, Jan. 19: Wolves In The Throne Room

Like a crow that is dark, intelligent and resourceful - schooling its children in the ways of life, so do Wolves in the Throne Room school their listeners in the ways of earthy black metal. Sometimes ambient, sometimes thunderous, always with radical environmentalism in mind, Wolves will remind you of

Friday, Jan. 13: Vile Red Falcons CD Release Show

"We all are in our thirties and grew up on Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, Drive-By Truckers and all that stuff," says John Beidel, guitarist and vocalist for the Vile Red Falcons. "We got together and I think the first few practices we just played crappy Pearl Jam covers.

BITE US: Tangled up at the Tanglewood

A mammoth fireplace, lamps wrapped in barbed wire and antlers galore give Gig Harbor restaurant Tanglewood Grill the vibe of a hunting lodge, fisherman cabin and stuffed wildlife gallery rolled into one. The rustic raw beams and log-cabin wood walls help balance the Denny's-like feel of the floor plan. An American

Friday, Jan. 13-Sunday, Jan. 15: Monster Jam

Who doesn't like to sit in attendance while junkyard cars get smashed and toppled by massive, petrol-chugging monster trucks? No one we care to associate with. That's like suggesting there are people out there who don't like nacho cheese or Michele Bachmann. Likely story. Luckily this weekend the Feld Motor
