Wednesday, March 5: Jessica Lynne

The music typically coming out of Denmark leans toward art punk, power electronics and cold synth pop. Jessica Lynne, who grew up 60 km south of Copenhagen, sings country music. Country Music Television had an effect, as did rural life, with cows outside the church windows. Whatever, Lynne relocated to

Monday, March 3: Polar Bear Chat

The only polar bear photograph you've seen recently was a snapshot of your hefty neighbor Earl and his New Year's Day plunge into Commencement Bay wearing a tutu and Viking helmet. Why would someone do such a thing? Anyway, you don't have to be a polar bear to enjoy traveler

Saturday, March 1: South Sound Sustainability Expo

Fun fact: Before there were expos, people had no idea how to disseminate information about sustainability. It was a bleak time. Luckily, events like Saturday's South Sound Sustainability Expo at the Greater Tacoma Convention and Trade Center have solved this problem, bringing "green" to the masses. According to yearly hype,

Visual Edge: Becky Knold at Salon Refu

Three years ago I wrote that painter Becky Knold was an up-and-coming late bloomer and galleries should take a look at her. Since then her work has become ubiquitous. Galleries took a look, and they liked what they saw. This week she had openings at two different galleries on successive

TBASA keeps you on your toes

May as well get this out of the way right now: TBASA is not an acronym. Rather, it's a sort of convenient mashup of one guy's name. Tim Basaraba is a restlessly inventive singer-songwriter, beginning his musical life in Idaho as a punk singer, and subtly merging into a genre-hopping
