Teddy Haggarty is on a tear, and a broken hip

Teddy Haggarty is unstoppable. To say the longtime nationally and locally renowned artist, actor, filmmaker, designer and South Sound resident is very busy man is an understatement. He's painting up a beautiful storm, with a positively prolific collection of new works complete with a gallery opening in the near future; he's

Sleepless in Mumbai: A quirky, romantic comedy - Indian style

Fried things filled with more fried things and then deep-fried. Bits of meat and vegetables suspended in thick sauces and pastes ladled over rice, seasoned with a rich, exotic medley of the most powerful spices this side of a Dune novel. All of it so succulently semisolid you can almost

Tournament of Burgers champion: Westside Tavern

The Cosmopolites make experimental music to give you pause

It's an open secret that music critics - and, really, any critics - end up being drawn to the unusual, or even the off-putting, due to their constant exposure to the same old same old. I've just reached five years of writing about music for this fine rag, and there's

Metal Cares: Pariah's Revolt Gives Back

Metal is soft. In fact, cesium, the softest metal on earth, can be cut with a butter knife. The metal music genre is taking a turn toward softness, too. Have you seen those Skeletor memes with the inspirational quotes? How about the photo Tumblr of metalheads posing with their cats? Point

[SINGER-SONGWRITER] + THURS, APRIL 10-11 I can't remember when I met Mike Coucoules. Years and years ago at Cole's in Ruston is my guess, well before it burst into flames, before his auto accident benefit jam at Seafarers Sports Bar in 2006, and before I became a groupie when Coucoules played

Essential guide to drinking on the outskirts of Olympia

Welcome to Thurston County, where hunters, hippies, and head officers can all be at the same bar. While an establishment may have a country, dive or hipster feel, everyone is always welcome. That's the one thing that makes this area so unique: we're pretty darn accepting of everyone. Many people will

Through April 20: "Orphan Train"

Between 1853 and 1929, through both the American Civil War and World War I, the Orphan Train Movement shipped over a quarter of a million parentless children to the Midwestern states from overcrowded metropolises on the Eastern seaboard. Initiated by Calvinist minister Charles Loring Brace and

The heavy, four-piece Pariah's Revolt from Olympia (Kevin Saint, Josh "Monster" Williams, Chad "The Ghost" Daniels, and Shane "Warzone" Hanson) have all the badassness of ear-splitting chords, metal riffs and black clothing that you'd expect from the genre. And they're taking their community involvement to the next level with a fundraiser to help the

Sunday, April 13: Los Devitos

The amount of words that have been spilled on surfy garage music is surely some intimidating, absurd amount that can only be quantified using some poetic, Carl Sagan-esque double-speak. Something about star stuff. Here, then, I find myself faced with Los Devitos. They're a surfy garage rock band. They're great.

Saturday, April 12: Phobos and Deimos

Phobos and Deimos get their name from the two moons of Mars, a suitably grandiose title and concept for a band as dramatic as they are. Taking their cues from dark, crooning, romantic New Wavers like the Cure, the Church, and Echo and the Bunnymen, Phobos and Deimos are the

Friday, April 11: Cosmopolites

As of press time, I'm not even sure if I like the Cosmopolites, but they do, blessedly, give me pause. What I know for sure is that they're compelling. There's something at once cheesy and subversive about the music they make. Blending a syrupy mixture of light jazz and provocative
