Wooden Lip Service: The Jilly Rizzo, Death By Stars and Foothills Got Talent?

In the helter-skelter of the modern world, sometimes Bobble Tiki needs nothing so much as the chance to retire inside, close the bamboo shutters and take a break. But Bobble Tiki is the nervous sort, cursed with the inability to just sit and daydream. For some reason, and in less than

Tournament of Sandwiches: Vote now!

Everyone eats sandwiches. After all, it's hard to really screw up a sandwich, since it requires just enough skill to slap a couple of slices of meat and maybe a little cheese between two pieces of bread. But by the same token, it's also hard to elevate

Friday, March 8: Curtis Salgado

For those looking for blues in our area need look no further than Friday's show at Jazzbones, when Portland-based Curtis Salgado takes the stage. As far as Northwest blues legends go, they don't get much bigger than Salgado, who served as the inspiration for John Belushi's creation of the Blues

The Rockford Files: Red Hex to tour Europe

My first encounter with Red Hex's singer/guitarist Sam Olsen was at his home while he tested out his recently acquired reverb tank. I use the word "tested" loosely. The test consisted of Olsen plugging in his Epiphone Sheraton and kicking the absolute hell out of the surprisingly resilient piece of

You may not be familiar with the wrestling phenomenon known as lucha libre, but it's all the rage in Mexico, where its popularity lags only behind that of soccer.
