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

Chef Hudson Slater shows his competitive spirit

It would seem that some local culinary talents are hell bent on taking the community on a journey to flavor country. There is one local chef personality that isn't just delivering quality, carefully crafted dishes to the table tops of his home base restaurant, but also out and about -

5 fortune tellers in Tacoma and Olympia

Parrot astrology (where parakeets pick up fortune cards), cleromancy (casting of stones or bones) and extispicy (reading the entrails of animals) all exist within the realm of fortune telling. For centuries, people have sought the power of these mystics for guidance in love, career, soul cleansing and more. Shunned by some,

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

Nirvana tribute concert at Olympia Spring Arts Walk

In the media frenzy generated by the 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's death, there is plenty of talk about Nirvana, Seattle and The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Huffington Post, Seattle Times and CNN mention Cobain's early home of Aberdeen, Wash. or report on the details of his suicide.

Hobosexual is the musical version of smashing your action figures together

Much has been made of Hobosexual's appropriation and interpretation of - not the ‘80s - but the idea of the ‘80s. As evidenced on their most recent LP (titled Hobosexual II, in a spot-on sendup of the oblivious self-aggrandizement that plagued mainstream rock of the ‘70s and ‘80s), this is

Even though it runs the risk of sounding like I'm complaining about tomato sauce for being too red, I've always had a hard time with dream pop if it errs on the side of being too wispy - not enough meat, nothing to latch onto, and me being upset at

Saturday, April 26: Dead To Fools

The first, discordant sounds to come squealing out of "Necrophilia" legitimately caught me by surprise. Up until that odd guitar sound, Dead to Fools were setting up this song as another tossed-off bit of chugging garage rock - but that modest curve ball reframes the band and suggests slightly more

New homes and communities in the South Sound

Many of the homes in the South Sound are far from new. If you choose to live right in Tacoma, Olympia or another city, you may face the purchase of a fixer-upper or high prices for a home someone else has already fixed up. One excellent way to go is
