Saturday, Jan. 11: You Are Plural

"Exploding in prisms on the inside" is part of the lyrics, sung dreamily and sweetly in hair-raising, feminine pitch over synth-y jams, reminding me a little of The Sundays and Mazzy Star. The lyrics belong to Olympia's You Are Plural, off their new release, Rabbit Rabbit. While synth-pop is the

Through April 5: "Vee Dub: Bohemian Beauties"

Lemay - America's Car Museum is going cool and groovy with "Vee Dub: Bohemian Beauties," an exhibit it has dubbed as "psychedelic." More than likely this means the classic Volkswagens on display will be painted with designs in bright neon colors. It probably does not mean that you'll be laying

The South Sound music scene knows how to take care of its own.

"People of a Feather" - another day hunting ducks, collecting feathers, hating dams

My recommendation last week (The Broken Circle Breakdown) was an excellent film, but also a very depressing piece of cinema. It was certainly an odd way to start the New Year, but I didn't take it as a taste of things to come. Let's see what this week's film is

Staff Sgt. Jason Truskowski named 2013 Military Citizen of the Year

Whether Jason Truskowski was in the back of an ambulance racing to an accident, or standing in front of a group of women teaching self defense, or putting away tables and chairs at an annual hunter's breakfast, he always had the same feeling - satisfaction. It's the payment of volunteering. And that

Lt. Col. Richard "Ken" Wheeler, 91, recounts his WWII missions

Retired Lt. Col. Richard "Ken" Wheeler, almost 91, has a story to tell and, if you ask nicely, he'll leave you enthralled. Wheeler, who resides in Gig Harbor with his second wife, Sharon, is a World War II veteran that survived the harrowing ordeal of being shot down over German territory.

4-2 Stryker Brigade headed for changes at Joint Base Lewis-McChord

Besides being lethal, flexible and agile, the Army is adaptable to change. The country's largest armed force is cutting it combat brigades from 45 to 32 and shifting thousands of soldiers as it moves toward the goal of trimming the service by 80,000 as it pivots toward challenges in the Pacific.

Vien Dong restaurant will warm your body and soul

Ah, winter. Even while wishing for a mountaintop fireplace, darting from place to place for warmth, the first layering of woolens, drabbest down or brightest fleece begin to muffle forms and features. The back of the closet comes to the front, here's the Siberian mufti, the Antarctic-suited yakwear. Fake fur

Boogie Board rock

If you'll allow me a brief aside, I'd like to have the opportunity to get this observation out of my brain. "Laguna," the opening track off an EP of demos by the Echo Echo Echoes, reminds me so viscerally of Some Loud Thunder - the effectively career-ruining sophomore slump from

Winter concerts in the Pacific Northwest

Conventional wisdom suggests that one's best bet for combating those bleak Winter doldrums is to stay cooped up inside, shielding oneself against the elements, drinking heavily, and awaiting that glorious day when the weather turns. As a counterargument against conventional wisdom, I think it's vital to brave the outdoors and push

I'm, like, a Valley Girl on the "Angel Grove High" series

Walking into BramCo Entertainment studios, the brainchild of Isaac Cooper and David Bramwell, two friends from Olympia who have known each other since middle school, I was led to a room with a microphone, a pitcher of water, and a Mac computer. Despite the minimal set up, the duo produces a

Music Critics' Picks: Abdu Ali, DJ Hawkskee, You are Plural, Trees and Timber

[POET/RAPPER/VOCALIST] + FRI, JAN. 10 Baltimore artist Abdu Ali is a tough one to pin down. Combining surreal poetry with droning R&B, Abdu Ali comes across as a restless experimenter, switching back and forth from rapping, chanting, singing and startling outbursts. His recent, lurching "Thornz" is as unsettling as it is
