JBLM Bettie Brigade Spotlight: Sgt. Severe

For military spouse and Lakewood resident Abigail Rael (aka "Sgt. Severe"), it's about roller derby love in every sense of the word. Rael skates for the spirited Joint Base Lewis-McChord Bettie Brigade, an all-female, player-run, flat-track roller derby league and nonprofit organization, which is comprised of women directly from the military

Tuesday, June 17: The Electric Magpie

If I asked you to guess what type of music The Electric Magpie make, no points for saying "neo-psychedelia." Still, The Electric Magpie go a bit of a way in terms of exploring the less explored corners of those '60s nuggets. Dashes of Canned Heat peak out from underneath the

Tuesday, June 17: The Gypsters

The Gypsters is a band that, whether or not they intended it, reminded me of bands like Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show and the Fugs, even though they stylistically don't quite connect. Like the aforementioned bands, the Gypsters are serious about making music, but their songs sometimes lend themselves

Saturday, June 14: Dude York

Sometimes it's hard to think of how to describe a group, other than by saying that they're a fucking solid rock group. Dude York is so adept at making ridiculously catchy, wiry indie rock that it's enough to make one tongue-tied. The heavy pop of Dude York has remained steady

Friday night in Olympia is going to be crazy. It's a full moon, Friday the 13th and Evergreen State College graduation all rolled into one. It's a good thing this rock show is going to be at the 4th Ave Tav. The powerhouse bill will need the room to accommodate

WSDOT presents solutions to I-5 congestion near JBLM

Typically, a driver stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic along the seven-mile stretch of Interstate-5 through Joint Base Lewis-McChord has a simple solution to the gridlock - build more lanes. But the remedy isn't that simple. That was part of the message at the Washington State Department of Transportation's public presentation Wednesday at Eagles

Laid Back Attack: Parrotheads for USO

When the ParrotHeads of Puget Sound gather next month to raise funds for the USO Northwest, they'll be continuing a nearly 20-year tradition of "partying with a purpose."

Vet Richard Baker - Renaissance man

While in high school, Richard Baker made a vow to himself to do everything he could possibly do with his life. It is safe to say the California native has fulfilled his self-promise. "I feel pretty good about myself," Baker said as we sat outside a local café and drank coffee. "I am

Theater Review: Cemetery Club is enough (but not more)

A day after opening night of The Cemetery Club at Olympia Little Theatre, my objective and subjective selves are still debating its merits. From a technical standpoint, the show has grievous shortcomings. It's blocked so we spend much of our time gazing at actors' hair instead of their faces.  The

Theater Review: The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up

Theater, no matter how hard we try, is nothing like life. It's amplified, focused, condensed and artificial. That's not to say we who craft it are unobliged to say anything about real life, but we needn't feel we must reproduce it photographically as if there were no audience members sharing

Mondays: Monday Madness Comedy Night with Puddin

Comedy open mics are where performers cut their teeth, develop their chops and other folksy idioms meaning "possibly suck to get better." Comedians nervously testing out premises they thought of while parking. These baby-steps are often tucked into weekdays as not to compete with the weekend's bigger events. Do you
