Friday, May 9: Andy Coe Band

I have a confession. I love The Grateful Dead. I own Steal-Your-Face shirts. I have dropped and been "enlightened" by Garcia. I sometimes sing "Ripple" as a lullaby to my kids. The reason I'm telling you this is because the Andy Coe Band is coming to the Olympia Ballroom for

A Family of Misfits: "Strictly Sacred: The Story of Girl Trouble"

"Where are we going?" "Nowhere!" "Where's nowhere?" "Tacoma!" So goes the rallying cry of Girl Trouble, as depicted in archival footage as they ready themselves to go onstage sometime in the mid-'80s. This is not only just one small example of the awe-inspiring mountain of footage dug up for the forthcoming documentary, Strictly Sacred:

Prom Queen are all about shadows and cinematic cool

Certain terms get used ad nauseam in writing about pop music to describe things that "folky" and "dancy" and "fuzzy" just can't cover. I know, I know, what other kind of music is there? Well, one word that gets used frequently by frazzled writers with a deadline is "cinematic." It's

Flair to Midland: Bar Bistro is worth the drive

Location, location, location. This has been preached for decades and has an inkling of truth, but folks have also been known to say, "build it and they will come." Whether the slogan applies to Bar Bistro in Midland has yet to be determined. It's only been open since September of last

Saturday, May 10: Prom Queen
