Saturday, Aug. 30: Soundgarden

Dug out one of my old Soundgarden records this week. Not the obvious Superunknown. Not the purist Louder Than Love. Nah, I went for the big, bloated granddaddy of all grungedaddies Soundgarden album, Badmotorfinger - the masterwork that rates up there with Nevermind as one of the defining, sludgy, glorious

You poor, tragic thing. Your friends have all but deserted you for a fabulous holiday weekend camping in the mountains, and you are stranded, Banarama-style, here in the South Sound. The only way to exact revenge is to have a better time than those so-called friends. This calls for some

Through Sept. 13: "Middletown"

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

Thursday, Aug. 28: "Searching for Sugar Man"

You should really stop reading this right now. Seriously. It isn't that Searching for Sugar Man's plot developments are gotcha!-like, but this documentary does boast some bowl-you-over reveals best experienced blind. Swedish filmmaker Malik Bendjelloul treks his camera to South Africa to investigate the legend of Rodriguez, a '70s-era singer-songwriter

South Sound school districts have safety plans, including JBLM schools

While parents still rejoice because the kids are back in school, the tragedy of 74 school shootings in less than a two-year period has elevated concerns about school safety.

Teach Me Equals and their compelling collaborations

There was once a show called Duets - please, lord, let this show actually be canceled, because I can't be bothered to look it up - where young performers from around the country were tasked to perform duets with professionals. What made this shitty show interesting was the unstated premise
