Friday, Jan. 18: Rockin' Comedy Extravaganza

This Friday, the Backstage Bar and Grill and Puddin' Pie Productions melds the two genres with their Rockin' Comedy Extravaganza featuring two bands and five comedians grabbing the stage respectively, bringing a double dose of entertainment that will make you want to tweet, "These guys rock" and

Friday, Jan. 18: Science!

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

Friday, Jan. 18: Dusty 45s

For most Olympians with even a passive interest in attending live shows, Dusty 45s is a known quantity. Truth is, I shouldn't have to tell you about the band's renowned blend of rockabilly, honky tonk, folk and Americana, because you probably already know. You also may already know that it

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 pretty similar to that

Through Feb. 3: "The Children's Hour"

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

Through Feb. 15: "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

Saturday, Jan. 19: Elvis Birthday Bash

Have you heard of Robert Washington? Lemme tell you, anytime he visits Olympia, he gets us all shook up. He swoons the ladies and wows the crowd with his World Champion Elvis impersonating. And while his press release tells about Washington's "efforts to crack the color barrier," I'm just gonna

Let's just cut to the chase, here: Charlyne Yi (who you may know from movies like Knocked Up and her own quasi-documentary Paper Heart) will be swinging through town on Saturday. Yi, a resident of the out-of-control great Los Angeles indie comedy scene, is a true original. Bizarre, hilarious, and

Tuesday, Jan. 22: John Carlos lecture

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

Saturday, Jan. 26: 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

Driving Col. Schwarzkopf

The silver lining behind the cold flightline

Eight months of the year, Washington state residents see temperatures drop down to the 40's or lower. For people with outdoor jobs, like crew chiefs on McChord Field, the cold weather is definitely a factor in their day-to-day life. Since the beginning of 2013, the temperature on McChord Field has been

A 16-minute improvisational interview with Ryan Stiles

I feel it's safe to assume a majority of people recognizes the name Ryan Stiles. The 53-year-old American born Canadian and current resident of Bellingham has made a prominent name for himself through various TV shows, movies, commercials and live shows. Stiles' most notable roles include the beloved Whose Line
