Saturday, Oct. 18: Havania Whaal

I'm not precisely sure what precipitated the members of Havania Whaal to plug in that mandolin and feed it through layers of distortion, but it's working for them.

Saturday, Oct. 18: Hey Lover

Friday, Oct. 17: The Van Allen Belt

Named after a scientific discovery, The Van Allen Belt are doing their part to tear down and rebuild. Their recent LP, Heaven on a Branch, is a sly study in mixing and matching. The ways they play with sounds and expectations is sometimes so subtle that you find yourself waking

Visual Edge: "The Black Aesthetic" at B2 Fine Art Gallery

In many ways Gary and Deborah Boone operate B2 Fine Art Gallery more like a museum than a commercial gallery - much to Tacoma's great good fortune. They have held survey shows of the best of children's art from around the world, not once, not twice, but three times with

If you're walking on Rogers Street in Olympia, you can't miss Jerry Parker's garden. It has a wide variety of colorful native plants and a curved walking path with a stone bridge going over an often-dry streambed.
