Sunday, June 30: The Mormon Trannys

I suppose it's fitting that the Mormon Trannys will be gracing Olympia with their presence on a Sunday. I also suppose there's no way for me to really know if they're actually scorned former members of the Church of Latter Day Saints, like they claim, but what is utterly apparent

Saturday, June 29: 19th Annual Olympia Experimental Music Festival

You're likely to hear lots of noise coming out of Olympia this weekend. While that might not be news to some, the strange sounds emanating from the city will be calculatedly noisy. In its 19th year, the Olympia Experimental Music Festival features bands from near and far who favor

Saturday, June 29: Shotgun Kitchen

Friday, June 28: Endino's Earthworm

Some people just have it in their blood. It keeps them up at night, recalling a riff, imaging hook with melody, composing and writing and fretting until music simply explodes from them. Other people have it in their blood to take the dreams of those musicians and polish, re-arrange, edit, and

Saturday, July 6: 24-Hour Zine Thing

Magazines have been around in one form or another throughout history. In Elizabethan England, there were small chapbooks of Shakespeare's text. In colonial America, there were pamphlets by people like Thomas Paine. In this modern world, with its easily accessible technology, print media has morphed into zines, a sort of
