Class, desire and crime collide in "Gloucester Blue"

If you've never been to a show at Harlequin Productions in Olympia, Gloucester Blue by the prolific and celebrated American dramatist, Israel Horovitz, would be an amazing initiation.

Beautiful "Barbara" is one of the best

To me there's something intriguingly raw and human about a character that won't let down his or her walls to open up to anyone. I find myself wanting to know what circumstances made them into the person that they are. Yet oftentimes what's also enticing is the character that is

Tuesday, May 21: Week of Wonders

Week of Wonders describe their music as "tropical punk," which I suppose is as good a place to start as anywhere. What do they mean when they say this? Upon first listening, the lo-fi guitars and reverb-laden vocals call to mind any of many psychedelic pop revivalists, but then that

Tacoma vs. Olympia

In 2012, Tacoma was ranked the 12th most peaceful city in the United States by the Institute for Economics and Peace. The study also found a strong correlation between peace and economic opportunity, health, education and social capital. In other words, Tacoma is pretty mellow, yo, and that's a good thing.

A few years ago, I wrote about a band called Mr. Frederick - a band that I called "indescribable." It was a project from a guy called Justin Stimson and it blended seemingly incompatible elements like rap-rock, folk, prog and chamber pop. It was a complex soup, and it inexplicably

Best places for pie in the South Sound

Time and time again, I have been asked the question, "Where can I go to get some good pie?" It turns out that this seemingly simple food is hard to get just right. Flaky crusts, mile-high meringues and dense, delectable fillings are the ideal. Where does one go in the

Little did I know I would be getting an education on real, honest-to-absolute-goodness food when I visited downtown Tacoma's Puget Sound Pizza.
