Zeahorse arrives from Australia's weird grab bag

It should be obvious that it's a dumb idea to stick an entire country with one label. As we know in the U.S., there are marked areas that have their own flavor and eccentricities. Still, as a young man engaging with music in an increasingly untenable valley of sonic experiences,

Music Critics' Picks: Elizabeth Hummel, Midday Veil, Less Than Jake

[SINGER-SONGWRITER] + SAT, OCT. 4 House concerts - those intimate shows where people open their homes to musicians, friends and strangers for an intimate show like no other - are a regular occurrence these days. The trend got its start in 1997, when singer-songwriters Elizabeth Hummel and Cindy Lee Berryhill embarked

Rock The Dock Pub & Grill cares

Recently I was stalking Gwen Stence, owner of Tacoma's Rock the Dock Pub & Grill, on Facebook and took a special interest in a few particular posts of hers.  I noticed there had been a string of petty thefts happening outside of her bar, which is located in a significantly

"Stay me with flagons, comfort me with apples: for I am sick of love." - Song of Solomon 2:5, KJV I'm a 2007 transplant to the South Sound. Even before I moved here, though, I knew Washington was famous for four things: designer coffee, incessant rainfall, sparkly vampires who dated mouth-breathing

Through Oct. 12: "Busytown"

The musical opens with the "Busytown Theme," which introduces the characters in a cute and energetic way. Very quickly, Huckle Cat (one of the roles played by the fabulous Kate Ayers) wonders "What Do People Do All Day" and several numbers answer that question and lead us

Krautrock is a genre defined by both rigid control and psychedelic improvisation, as is to be expected by a German subgenre developed in the '70s. Can, famously, would jam for a long time before paring down the track to a slim eight-to-10 minutes, or so. Other bands cherished mechanical instrumentation,

Thursday, Oct. 2 & Saturday, Oct. 4: Zeahorse

Zeahorse is a band that does not stumble blood-crusted out of the outback. They're from Sydney which, one imagines, could not be without at least a couple air-conditioned fast food restaurants. The prospect of losing one's mind in the wasteland of the desert would likely be far from the minds

Wounded Warrior Project survey results

Earlier this month, the Wounded Warrior Project released the results of its fifth annual alumni survey. The results were tabulated based on feedback from more than 21,000 veterans, making it the largest sample of injured servicemembers since 9/11. While much of the research reflects the challenges that wounded warriors face, it

Salute to Pierce County

The Lakewood and Tacoma Historical Societies are joining forces to commemorate the World War I centennial and the fascinating role citizens of Pierce County played in establishing Camp Lewis in 1917.

Movie screening benefits JBLM Fisher House

It's one thing to hear about what happens during war or read about it the newspaper. It's another thing entirely to witness firsthand what the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces endure while serving downrange. For those not in the military, the opportunity to know what really happens

JBLM Pageant entry due

This fall there will be a one-of-a-kind event on Joint Base Lewis-McChord when the JBLM Pageant occurs. "To my knowledge, this is the first pageant of its kind here," said pageant planner Trisha Addison, who only arrived at JBLM with her family in April. She'd seen some talk on social media about

Theater Review: Clybourne Park at Harlequin Productions

I think it'd be tough to argue Clybourne Park isn't one of the best-written scripts we've seen in years. It won the Pulitzer, the Tony, and the Society of London Theatre's Olivier Award. Playwright Bruce Norris does an exceptional job of allowing characters to talk themselves into conflicts far deeper

McChord Reserve Wing welcomes new commander

In a simple and straightforward ceremony on Saturday afternoon at McChord Field in Hangar 9, Col. Scott McLaughlin assumed command of the 446th Military Air Wing. Hundreds of Air Force members and civilian leaders - along with a significant numbers of friends and family - gathered to witness the ceremony. "I promise

Wednesday, Oct. 15: Hamell On Trial

As strenuously as I labor to remain ignorant, there are occasions working for this fine journal when I discover myself learning something inadvertently. Such was the case when editor Ron "Pappi" Swarner asked me to cover an upcoming performance by Hamell on Trial. Absolutely, I replied. Happy to oblige. Now.
