The Swiss Restaurant and Pub in Tacoma turns 21

There's something to be said for being the only one. The outpost, colors snapping in the immaterial breeze, bastion of cool, temple of special. The Swiss Tavern was that, once - 21 years ago, in a galaxy remarkably similar to the one we now inhabit. For those unfamiliar with the terrain,

Record Store Day: Your opportunity to declare your love for music

My father's record collection is vast and intimidating. For years, he worked as a clerk at Peaches Records & Tapes, quick to nab up everything he could and get all High Fidelity with the rotating cast of record store devotees. Growing up, I never owned a record. In my early

Black Pussy are a boozy trip through the 5th Dimension

Portland's Black Pussy are quick to address their name to anyone provoked by it. You see the Rolling Stones' "Brown Sugar" - a frankly kind of odd ode to slavery and interracial sex, though let's continue not thinking about that - was originally supposed to be titled "Black Pussy." Mick

April 24: Black Pussy

Formed by Dustin Hill, Black Pussy is a band that leans into the stoner rock label, despite the fact that listening to their music doesn't instantly evoke images of smoke sessions and unbearable jams. Rather, their sound and look is absolutely reminiscent of the '70s and the nascent birth of

Saturday, April 19: TisDass

Kildjate Moussa Albadé is a singer-songwriter from Tuareg, Niger. He's currently touring through the U.S. under his TisDass moniker. What distinguishes Albadé is his soulful and pristine guitar work.

Saturday, April 19: Record Store Day

This is a holiday devoted to encouraging music fans to leave their bubble of predictable downloads and entering a world where the skip button doesn't exist.

It is a sad fact that the military is losing servicemembers to suicide at a rate that continues to climb.
