Maria Muldaur joins the DB Cooper Music Festival

Maria Muldaur's 50-year career is probably best described as an odyssey through American roots music. Although she is known worldwide for her sultry 1974 mega-hit "Midnight at the Oasis," which topped the charts, received several Grammy nominations and landed her on the cover of Rolling Stone, Maria was also in on

Tacoma Jazz and Blues Festival 2014

It was a cool July night in the City of Grit. My fedora pulled down low over my eyes, I peered out through a haze of cigarette smoke as I slunk down South Tacoma Way. Maybe that's why at first I didn't see the hep cat in the zoot suit.

Campfire Cassettes is one man with many words

At the heart of it all, the power of a singer-songwriter is the ability to convey the perception of a singular vision, of one person letting out everything that's inside them. There's nothing separating them from the listener besides one guitar and one microphone. When this form finds its most

[AVANT-POP] + SAT, JULY 26 One of the things that tends to deter me from music with the "experimental" label is that it too frequently has a tendency to spiral out into free jazz journeys with no end in sight. My roots are too entrenched in pop construction for me to

Downtown Puyallup picnic game plan

The last time I tried to bring a friend to a picnic she ended up leaving early. Why? No one wants to hear about how much my ass hurts from sitting on the ground, much less while they're eating one of my homemade bologna and moldy cheese with mayo sandwiches.

Through Aug. 14: Bill Colby's "Water And Rocks: A Journey"

A visit to Bill Colby's latest exhibition at The Gallery at Tacoma Community College is like a trip to the beach. The gallery is filled with - by my cursory count - 44 bright paintings dominated by clear blue water and clear blue sky complemented by rocks

Tuesday, July 29: Stephen Steinbrink

Stephen Steinbrink's most recent album, Arranged Waves, was released through Melodic Records, based in Manchester, England. Judging by Steinbrink's music, Manchester has changed a lot since the raucous and experimental days of the '80s. A record label called Melodic is the perfect avenue to find Steinbrink, whose music is pristinely

Friday, July 25-Saturday, July 26: Campfire Cassettes

Campfire Cassettes was started by Jonathan Buchanan as a way of getting pesky songs out of his head. Sometimes he performs with a full band, but the tour he's on finds him performing solo, with an assist from his tourmate, Todd N Todd (AKA Todd Daniels). The first song on

Medal of Honor retirement for Sgt. Leroy Petry

The pride shown by Medal of Honor recipient Sgt. Leroy A. Petry toward his family and his fellow soldiers is evident as he leans over his knees and talks about his retirement. Petry is a big man full of heart, grace and confidence. He twists his prosthetic hand, the fingers

WDVA goes to the dogs

Most of us have seen service dogs. Sometimes we'll spy one at a restaurant, laying calmly by its master's feet. Or perhaps in the mall, walking sedately as its owner makes his or her way through hordes of people. Usually distinguished by their tell-tale vests, service dogs are trained to

Theater Review: Animal Fire Theatre's "The Two Gentlemen of Verona"

Though I admire the Bard of Avon, I'd never before seen or read one of his first plays, The Two Gentlemen of Verona. It isn't highly prized. Some commentators, Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch among them, believe Shakespeare farmed out its ending; even the play's CliffsNotes sniff, "(The play) doesn't appear to

Larry Geringer's office used to be a small storage closet. On the desk there's a telephone and an older looking computer. In one of the desk drawers are some snacks. In a corner there is a coffee maker on a small counter.  Under the counter are a few drawers holding some socks,

Washington National Guard prepares for earthquakes

Earthquakes are Mother Nature's way of tapping us on the shoulder to let us know she is still in charge. They are simple events, and earthquakes occur when two layers, or plates, of the Earth shift and run into each other. This action results in seismic waves and the shaking of

You know who looks great for her age? Washington. Yeah, I said it: Washington. For 125; are you kidding me? This state doesn't look a day over 80! And as terrific as Washington looks, she sounds even better. Oh, sure, she's been through some experimental phases. I mean, what youngster

Wednesday, Aug. 6: Blueberry Festival

As we wolfed down fresh wild blueberries, we couldn't recall the last time we ate any fruit quite so flavorful. Eating a blueberry still warm from the sun was like tasting one for the very first time. Its essence goes straight to our heads. And everyone knows blueberries are loaded
