Ages and Ages just wish you'd dance all ready

In one of the final shots of Stop Making Sense - a movie that notably eliminated shots of the crowd in favor of lovingly photographed views of the Talking Heads - we finally get a glimpse of the audience, and they are going fucking bonkers. Whenever I see those shots,

Say hello-hello to halo-halo

Let the truth be known: I am secretly scared to death to fly across any ocean, into any foreign country, for any reason whatsoever.  Even if it's to eat the best goddamn meal I'll ever have, I will not travel. Call me a scaredy cat, a wuss, or a coward -

INK THIS! - Celebrating Northwest printmaking at Tacoma Art Museum

Not that artists do not still make etchings, lithographs and silkscreen prints, but what they do with these and other print media - often in inventive and never-before-thought-of combinations and employing new digital technologies - can be like nothing ever before seen.

Thursday, June 5: Ages and Ages

Portland band Ages and Ages, without getting all touchy-feely, has eschewed apathy in favor of forthright optimism. Like the Arcade Fire did a decade ago, Ages and Ages recruit their entire band to sing at once, less for the sensation of catharsis, and more for the feeling of togetherness. Isn't

Wednesday, June 4: Lake Island

Radiohead took a weird turn after OK Computer. Instead of jettisoning into the atmosphere of rock gods, they pulled back and decided to make music that they could enjoy, which meant alienating a section of their audience. They continued this trend, making their music more and more specific, until they'd

Wednesday, June 4: Civil War Scoundrels of the Pacific Northwest

Hey, McConaughey is coming to the Washington State History Museum in Tacoma! I wonder if he'll talk about his Oscar-winning performance in Dallas Buyers Club, or his role on the stunning HBO series True Detective. Wait, what's that?

Saturday, May 31: The Family Curse

The Family Curse describe themselves as "electro filth rock," and that definitely does a more succinct job of letting you know what they're all about than I could. To be more specific, the Family Curse sound positively caked with grime and some weird sticky substance that you don't even want

Camp Patriot for veterans

As injured veterans, they already know what they can't do. It's Micah Clark's job, through Camp Patriot, to show servicemembers, some without arms, or a leg or an eye, what they can do. "You've got two choices," Clark said. "You can curl up and die. Or you can say these are the
