It's hard to seriously consider Jill Neal's pictures art. As printed images on coffee cups and greeting cards and wine labels and tote bags they are witty, joyful, delightful, inventive and just a heck of a lot of fun. But serious art they're not. In celebration of International Women's Month B2

Thursday, March 21: Behead the Prophet No Lord Shall Live

Behead the Prophet No Lord Shall Live has returned, at least for the time being. The Olympia hardcore punk band, often considered at the forefront of the noise queercore movement, toured the country multiple times in the mid-1990s, while releasing material on Outpunk, Sound Pollution and K Records. Since the

Through March 31: "Oliver!"

It seems to me that 1960's Oliver!, adapted and composed by Lionel Bart, set the very model for a modern Broadway musical. It has all the elements we associate with the form. Its protagonist is a scrappy orphan (cf. Annie, Gavroche in Les Misérables) who uses his

Through April 6: "The Philadelphia Story"

As ostensible comedies go, The Philadelphia Story is only marginally funnier than Philadelphia. Barry drops dozens of 1930s references you'll need the glossary in the program to understand, but not many jokes. It's one of those plays where people take a magic narcotic that makes them blab

Friday, March 22: Horace Pickett

As a rule, I'm generally all for any puns involving "Monster Mash" singer Bobby "Boris" Pickett. Nailed it, Horace Pickett! As if its awesome name wasn't enough, the band actually does well at evoking the cheesy party vibe of "Monster Mash." Though the band claims that it often gets comparisons

Better living through music is a real thing. It's apparent all over the South Sound.

Saturday, March 23: Red Hex and "Ich Hunger"

For weeks, now, I've been trying to shake the images of Ich Hunger from my brain. Made by local filmmaker Isaac Olsen, Ich Hunger is a German expressionist freakout concerning a "creature boy" who lives in the forests of Germany and eats people. Saturday, as if Ich Hunger wasn't visually

Wednesday, March 27 & Saturday, March 30: Derde Verde

Derde Verde continues the grand journey set forth by bands such as Radiohead and Hawkwind.
