Fall Music Preview

It goes without saying that there are many worthwhile events that happen in the South Sound every week. We tell you about them. Don't act like you don't know. But, now that autumn is around the corner, and the blissful end of outdoor festival season is ending, it might be

Killer Ghost and Gang Cult stun with psych rock

In the newest decades, psychedelia has solidified into something of a memory of what psych rock should look and sound like. Reverb has run rampant across the genre, with hazy, druggy vibes surging underneath even the most straightforward guitar rock. Local bands like the Night Beats have made a career

Vegetarian at a barbecue

Vegetarian at a barbecue.  There's always one.  Especially here in the Pacific Northwest land of bleeding hearts.  I'm pretty sure most Washington state residents would rather save a tree than cut one down to build a homeless shelter.

Thursday, Aug. 28: Endless Summer Party

It's my understanding that some people really like summer. I can't fathom what's wrong with these people, so I'll just have to take their word for it. If you're one of these mixed up people, it stands to reason that you wouldn't want summer to end so soon (as much

Saturday, Aug. 23: Neutral Boy

Neutral Boy has been on the scene for years, punk rock staples. If you opened a fridge labeled Northwest Punk, Neutral Boy would be in the crisper, right next to the tall boys. Except for a few bands (you know who you are, assholes) and a couple limp burritos, the

Saturday, Aug. 23: Garlic Man and CHIKN

Here's a striking bit of weirdness. Garlic Man and CHIKN are a rap collective, made up of two women who not afraid of exposing every nook and cranny of their oddest and sometimes most off-putting ideas. From the bracingly upfront sexuality of "DTF" to "Watch You"'s creepy ode to the

Saturday, Aug. 23: Killer Ghost and Gang Cult

For a band that was essentially formed on the whim of two people talking in a bar, with one of them not really knowing how to play an instrument, Killer Ghost is as tight of a band as is going on in the psych rock world. Their recent EP, Sad

Theater Review: "Middletown" at Harlequin Productions

One of the things I love, and there are many, about our South Sound theater community is that it's big enough to allow a broad spectrum of material. Some, obviously, I like more than the rest, but that diversity means I don't have to watch Grease or Annie every year
