American Chronicles

Political song and dance

When your job is making everything from elections to war to environmental disasters into a joke, it really does color your worldview. "I don't look at the Egyptian protests and think, ‘Is this good for the world or bad for the world?' " says Elaina Newport, co-founder of the Capitol Steps,

South Pacific

The following is a true story. Cross my heart, hope to die. My first time visiting Tumwater's South Pacific, I was approached by an older woman. She was petite, blonde and pretty. She grabbed my waist while I was shaking my stuff on the dance floor. "I'm 48 years old," she

New kids on the block

The Puget Sound Book Artists are new booking-making kids on the block. While book arts groups do already exist in the region, they largely have events in Seattle. And sometimes that's just too far away. Luckily, Puget Sound Book Artists (PSBA) is here to focus specifically on the South Sound

Saturday, March 5: Thee Headliners

Their music is a punk-rock-inflected stew of doo-wop, country, AM pop, blues and R&B. They excel on songs like "It Ain't Right," where the classic, strumming structure of Brill Building is paired with a stuttering beat that keeps everything just slightly off-kilter. Read an interview with the band

The breakup band

The breakup band

If I may ... terrible breakups and lovers' quarrels within bands have inspired some of the greatest music of all time. We're talking about Fleetwood Mac's Rumors. We're gonna mention some 16 Lovers Lane by the Go-Betweens. We're gonna stretch things a great deal and include the Beatles' Let it

BITE US: Bagel Boyz are all the rage

More and more often, when I ask who supplies the bagels at a local café or coffee shop, the answer is Bagel Boyz. Last fall a barista at Clancy's almost peed himself in excitement when telling me it would be only a matter of days before the

Christmas in March

For major recording artists, Christmas albums are practically a requisite. It's like that old saw about opinions and a**holes - everyone's got one, even Bob Dylan, Annie Lennox and Air Supply. Understandably, the DIY music world steers clear of such nakedly commercial wintertime cash-ins, but Christmas, nonetheless, stands as a

Park staffers will provide the animals special holiday-themed treats and activities during the annual "Winter Willdand" winter break event Dec. 29 and Dec. 30.   While great fun is planned for the animals,  here's what's even

Doomed by technology

In every issue of this fine rag my hack team of wannabe journalists and I tackle some of the most laughable criminal acts that have recently happened in our area. Then - if we're doing our job - we write about those crimes in a way that makes you chuckle,

Saturday, March 5: James Coates

Quite literally, James Coates is one of the nicest dudes you'll ever meet. The centerpiece of local roots rock outfit James Coates and the Lost Souls, Coates seems to literally bleed emotion through his music (and even eyes). Saturday at Metronome Coffee on Sixth Avenue Coates will go solo -

Saturday, March 5: Poetry Out Loud

In high school, you went to State in pizza eating and acne. It could have been cooler. Saturday, you'll have a chance to see a dozen Washington high school students get a better jump on their lives than the Little Caesar's slogan, "Pizza! Pizza!" ever afforded you, competing in the

Friday, March 4: David Oaks

David Oaks is something of a mental illness and human rights crusader who sticks up for the often voiceless. According to hype on the Capitol Theater's website (conveniently, he'll be there Friday night), Oaks, "founder of MindFreedom International, has been working since 1976 to protect the rights of psychiatric patients

Thursday, March 10: Lew Tabackin

Lew Tabackin has been nominated for Grammys, yo - like plural Grammys. Freakin' 10 times. While there's no doubt the Black Eyed Peas et al. have cheapened that honor, it's still kind of a big deal ... although it may be the least impressive thing on Tabackin's resume. Dude's flute
