Heatwarmer never stop reaching for the next sound

It's been a constant journey for me, as a music fan, to find bands that challenge me without completely turning me away. As much as I can appreciate all sorts of adventurous music, there is a certain point that I cannot pass. Certain prog-rock bands exposed to me by my

Heritage Distilling Company releases Batch No. 12 spirits

To say the first day of NFL training camp is essentially the launch of a very long holiday centered around not just football but also eating and drinking is a pretty accurate statement. And though this isn't an article about football, or the Seahawks in particular, it is in regard

Destiny City Film Festival: The Stories We Tell

The unspoken joke about Tacoma being nicknamed the City of Destiny is that there's no destiny to be found here. We earned that nickname through the notion that our port would be the main hub of import and export in Washington. Instead, Seattle won out. There's no guarantees of anything

Saturday, Aug. 2: Manx

We Recommend

Saturday, Aug. 2: Manx

Manx hail from Portland, and their music is the kind of blazing, no-frills rock 'n' roll practiced by the likes of Fox and the Law. Though tinged with glam rock swagger, Manx don't pretend to be anything other than a dopamine-soaked delivery system of sick riffs to your brain parts.

Saturday, Aug. 2: Heatwarmer

Mixing jazz elements with hyperactive synth-rock, Heatwarmer create unpredictable music that doesn't so much jostle with its time changes and flights of fancy so much as it fervently sprints to wring every little bit of inspiration possible out of a song. In doing so, they command the attention of their

Saturday, Aug. 2: DB Cooper Music Festival

On the afternoon of Nov. 24, 1971, Thanksgiving Eve, a man who identified himself as Dan Cooper (no middle B - that was a media error) boarded Northwest Orient Airlines Flight 305, one-way, from Portland to Seattle. A guy could book a flight with sketchy ID in that pre-9/11 era.

Friday, Aug. 1: Yonatan Gat

Yonatan Gat was recently voted "Best Guitarist of 2013" by the Village Voice. There. Now go to the show. More? Formerly of the Israeli garage rock powerhouses, Monotonix, Gat has turned his eyes to the far corners of musical expression. Incorporating a dizzying variety of cultural influences - tropicalia, Middle

Jonathan Harris is an airman

For Jonathan Harris, working for the Air Force has never been an I-can't-wait-until-it's-Friday kind of job. And that passion, that love for the service, best explains his nearly 50 years with the military. "I love serving my country," Harris said. "I didn't want to take the uniform off." In 1961, as a

New Madigan program focuses on preventing soldier obesity

It's difficult enough to eat right and stay healthy when there are lots of food choices and plenty of time for exercise in your life. But in the military, this isn't always the case. Soldiers often face long hours and limited healthy food selections. Chicken and dumpling MRE, anyone? Moreover,
