Sunday, Jan. 20: Rainy Day Records 40th Anniversary Party

The year was 1973. Music was in it's arguable hey-day: Elvis Presley performed in Hawaii as the first worldwide telecast and was watched by more people than watched the Apollo moon landings, Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon was released and Rainy Day Records opened in Olympia,

THE ROCKFORD FILES: Innocent Bystander

In my never-ending search for new Tacoma music, and my relentless attendance of all-ages shows in the South Sound, I incidentally hear more bands than I can possibly write about. And when presented with such a plethora of music, I can't help but take note of bands I'd like to

Through April 19: "Greek and Roman Mythology"

The "Greek and Roman Mythology" exhibition at Tacoma Community College is outstanding. The operative word is strength - depicted strength of character, purpose and ideology; beauty and strength in the human body, and strong drawing and composition. There is also a lot of humor and wisdom in

"The Children's Hour" at Lakewood Playhouse

Willian Hellman's The Children's Hour is a long play, close to three hours, and its first hour is depressingly boring. Yet it's easy to see how its daring, few-holds-barred script was a Broadway sensation in 1934 - so much so, in fact, that New York state authorities were willing to

Is Tacoma a happy place to live?

Talking to Chiara Wood and Prof. Kate Stirling, you get the idea they know something you don't. It has something to do with the Happiness Initiative Project, which they are still kind of working out. Right now it involves a survey, further organization, probably some college interns. They have a

Revisiting the Black Panther salute

Forty-five years ago John Carlos and Tommie Smith raised black-gloved fist in the air and the whole world took note. That image remains indelible even today. The event was the Olympics in Mexico City. Smith had won the gold medal in the 200 meter race and Carlos had won bronze.

WHAT'S THE WORD?: Hip-Hop 4 Homeless

I usually do not write about Olympia hip-hop. I like to let my man Nick Leonard cover Oly. That said, I can't let Hip-Hop 4 the Homeless go by without giving it some props. This is by far my favorite Olympia hip-hop event of the year. The whole scene comes

Rockin' Comedy Extravaganza

There is an old expression in show business that goes something like this: "All comedians want to be rock stars, and all rock stars want to be funny." This Friday, the Backstage Bar and Grill and Puddin' Pie Productions melds the two genres with their Rockin' Comedy Extravaganza featuring two bands

We checked in with Science! asking guitarist and vocalist Justin Stang how he and bandmate Jim Elenteny help keep the music scene alive, why fans play an important role and how Olympia (which Stang calls home, and where Science!'s next show is) measures up in keeping their name on the Northwest

MUSIC CRITICS' PICKS: Elbow Coulee, Dusty 45s, Charlyne Yi, Elvis Birthday Bash, DJ Action Slacks

>>> Friday, Jan. 18 ELBOW COULEE Much has been said (by me, at some times) about how Elbow Coulee sounds like the meeting between pop-punk and dancey synth-rock, but the truth is that the band's range is larger than that. I mean, yeah, lead singer Andrew Tuller's voice does tend to sound

"My Kind Of Place" postcard show

Last year's postcard show at South Puget Sound Community College was a huge success so they're doing it again. This one does not seem quite as good, but maybe it's just that the novelty has worn off. Last year's theme was "Wish you were here," and there were a lot of
