Saturday, Feb. 23: "All's Fair In Love and War"

There's a magic rainbow that connects Tacoma and Olympia. An ethereal, colorful, sparkly bridge that connects us in many ways: art, music and beer, for instance. Next week, a burlesque event like no other will make that rainbow shine a little brighter, make that connection a little stronger

Sunday, Feb. 17: The Albert Square

The cover of The Albert Square album, Scared of the Youth, Scared of What's Next!, depicts two robots: one happy, one angry. It's an evocatively nerdy image, and once those first power chords come bursting out of "Sensational Programming," it becomes clear that this will all be a very nerdy

Survival Knife builds on Unwound, adds prog and smiles

Survival Knife is Kris Cunningham on drums, Meg Cunningham on bass, Brandt Sandeno on guitar and Justin Trosper on guitar and vocals. Yes, Meg and Kris are married, and yes, Sandeno and Trosper are two of the original three members of Olympia's infamous '90s indie rock predecessors, Unwound. All right, now that

WHAT'S THE WORD?: Abom and Micah B. and videos

Dear Drink: Lady From Shanghai

Dear Lady From Shanghai, My midwest raised grandmother refused to believe it. Gilligan, Skipper, the millionaire and his wife certainly didn't give a minnow's ass about the health reports over the transistor radio. You see, Lady From Shanghai, one day Americans were told that coconut oil was the devil in liquid

Red Wine and Chocolate tour through the Olympic Peninsula wineries

Red wine and chocolate are the stuff of which dreams are made. And they should be - they're delightful. Expansive mountain vistas and the Strait of Juan de Fuca ain't too shabby either. If the mere mention of such things lights your fire, then perhaps set aside some time this weekend

"Abstract - Representational Continuum" at Evergreen State College

There is an excellent art exhibit in the gallery at The Evergreen State College. It is called "An Abstract - Representational Continuum" and it juxtaposes abstract art with slightly surrealistic photographs culled from the college's art collection. Included are works by well-known West Coast artists and a few nationally-recognized artists.

"Pizza Man" doesn't deliver

Pizza Man, directed by and starring Pamela Arndt, has much to recommend it. Amanda Navarez's delicate house music is a welcome deviation from the usual canned stuff. The prerecorded music, when it does kick in, is apt and evocative. The show has a point of view, and its tech elements
