Wednesday, April 30: Clarinetist Eddie Daniels

Ah, the clarinet. It's the godfather of the woodwinds. You only have, say, a half-inch diameter to blow through. If you don't blow properly, it makes a loud, annoying noise. But if it's blown through properly, it's a beautiful instrument. The sound is so mellow, and soothing, and healing and

Tuesday, April 29: Taco Tuesday with the Don Cohen Jazz Quartet

Not that anyone needs another excuse to eat tacos, but Southbay Dickerson's BBQ in Olympia has declared Tuesday the day of the taco. And while barbecue and tacos may not sound harmonious on the surface, the principle behind "low and slow" cooking crosses any border. These hybrid

Saturday, April 26: Dragon Boat Festival

Legend has it that in the 4th century BCE, Chinese poet and statesmen Qu Yuan, tired of being repeatedly slandered and persecuted by the controlling political regime, threw himself into the Milo River to drown.

Friday, April 25: Ben Rice and the Illamatics

When 25-year-old Ben Rice opened his mouth to sing, I did not expect to hear the voice of an old soul, belted out in the honey-haggard tone of one who has been singing for a career, but that's exactly what happened. Combine with quick-picking on the guitar (sometimes on a

Thursday, April 24: Christopher O'Riley's "From the Top"

For most musicians the worlds of classical and modern music move in different orbits, if not galaxies. But when he sits down Thursday at the piano in the Rialto Theater, Christopher O'Riley should, once again, bring these spheres together. American pianist O'Riley has been sneaking Radiohead into the classical music

Theater review: "The Odd Couple" at Lakewood Playhouse

If there's one show every theater practitioner in America "knows" is overproduced, it's Neil Simon's 1965 comedy The Odd Couple. As Lakewood Playhouse's artistic director, John Munn, pointed out to me many times, however, that reputation isn't fully deserved. I, for one, had never actually seen a stage production of

"The Railway Man" puts a new spin on a classic revenge flick

I love a good, old-fashioned "get-even" movie. There's just something undeniably and timelessly appealing about seeing a poor, put-upon protagonist suffer the slings and arrows of some cartoonish villain only to rise up and make that villain face justice. If that happens when the bad guy is at the apex

Essential day trips in Olympia Washington

If this is your first trip to Olympia, welcome! I feel an affinity, as I've only lived here since 2007. It took months to wrap my head around the flagrantly liberal banter in Orca Books, introverted hints of "the Seattle freeze" in local taverns, and the mind-expanding pleasures of real
