Since joining the Army 20 years ago, Scott Fitzgerald has always tried to bring a little piece of his past with him wherever he goes. Whether he's been stationed in Germany, or in Leavenworth, or, as he is now, at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Fitzgerald packs his skates and hockey stick. This

Diagnosed with dyslexia in elementary school, Brianna Galvan has endured the "you can't" challenges in life.

[BEACH FUNK] + FRI, FEB. 21 Thomas Mudrick's music is a thrilling and unexpected stew of genres, calling to mind musical chameleons like Beck and Ween, but with a dedicated love of light psychedelia and soul. "Soul Glow" is a breezy bit of '70s beach funk, layered with dreamy aaahs and

Two Men, Two Guitars: Shane de Leon and Scott Arbogast in Olympia

A quick word about band names. As a music columnist, I'm constantly on the search for bands to fill these pages every week. Aside from certain signifiers (what type of music the venue typically plays, other bands with whom I'm familiar that are also on the bill, etc.), all I

Olympia independent bookstore Last Word Books is going underground

With The Beatles playing in the background, the rhythmic familiarity mingling with the scents of ink and must, Last Word Books in downtown Olympia feels like it always does: welcoming and mysterious. Basil, the black cat, still mills around, meowing at the occasional customer, and an employee sits behind the till,

Thursday, Feb. 27: Miss Massive Snowflake, Rainstick Cowbell

What does your mind go to when you hear the names Miss Massive Snowflake and Rainstick Cowbell (two bands currently nearing the end of month-long west coast tour)? If you're picturing a pair of twee indie bands or cutesy folk-rock, you'd be wrong. Miss Massive Snowflake and Rainstick Cowbell are

I love my music-writing gig. I can choose to preview any show I want. There isn't a scene I'm attached to. I'm not stuck with dreadlocks or a mohawk or a cowboy hat or a fedora or a trucker cap. I can listen to whatever I want, whatever the mood,

Saturday, Feb. 22: Blackstone Rangers

The music made by Blackstone Rangers is not immediately what one would imagine when thinking about the music that comes out of Dallas, Texas. While Blackstone Rangers are indeed Dallasites, their music strays from the rock and country that you might expect. Rather, Blackstone Rangers veer into dreampop territory, allowing

Here comes one of the best, a dude who gets more lyrical and fierce with each passing year. While I enjoy Cliff Colon's stark beauty tenor saxophone paired with singer/wife Sommer Stockinger, and his furious face-offs with fellow saxman Kareem Kandi, it's when he frosts the fusion and Latin funk that

Operation Gryphon Tomahawk: Largest Military Intelligence training at Joint Base Lewis-McChord

The planners of Operation Gryphon Tomahawk deserve an Oscar for the training plans they devised. Since October of last year, these planners put together training scenarios designed to certify the 109th and 502nd Military Intelligence Battalions of the 201st Battlefield Surveillance Brigade. Later this year, the 109th will deploy to Afghanistan while
