The muscular post-punk of Phobos & Deimos

There was a period of a couple years, when I was most entrenched in my exploration of music criticism and the brave new world of music classification, when I would introduce a band to my dad and attempt to describe them through a list of newspeak subgenres. My dad, being

Music Critics' Picks: The Little O and His Lonely One Man Folk-Punk Band, Hermit Thrushes, Shayla Renee, Uncle Bonsai

[BLUESY FOLK] + FRI, OCT. 24 The Little O and his Lonely One Man Folk-Punk Band is a wonderfully self-referential project. As the one-man band in question, the Little O is a self-styled caricature of a rambling troubadour. Most of his songs are titled with variations on "The Little O Sings

Haute Halloween: Tacoma Opera presents "The Magic Flute"

Dressing to scare this All Hallows Eve? Of course you are. You're cool like that. So why not take your sexy, imaginative duds to a joint where they'll be appreciated? Damn right we're referring to ... the opera. We'll give you a minute to let that sink in. Surely we meant

Halloween drinks and eats

Like most Pacific Northwest women in my general age bracket, I adore the autumn season. Scarves, hats, boots, pumpkin-flavored everything, falling leaves and Halloween! I always buy the kids' costumes a size too big so I can bundle them up underneath, and they look like wee puffy marshmallow monsters terrorizing

Friday, Oct. 31, and Sunday, Nov. 2: "The Magic Flute"

The Magic Flute is set in an unnamed fantasyland, but this production benefits from local stylistic influences. Tacoma Opera drew inspiration from the art and culture of Pacific Northwest Salish tribes, with valuable assistance from the Puyallup tribe in particular. The event's web page notes the

Saturday, Oct. 25: Phobos & Deimos

The genius thing about the subgenre of post-punk is that we now have bands like Phobos & Deimos who can mine inspiration from a vibrant variety of bands that existed during this period. "The guitarist Zac Webb and I had been friends for years," says Phobos & Deimos singer Hans Burger.

Friday, Oct. 24: Hermit Thrushes

Something tells me Hermit Thrushes aren't particularly concerned about whether or not you "like" them. Sounding like a cross between Captain Beefheart's elegant experimentalism and the Shaggs' aggressive non-conformity, Philadelphia's Hermit Thrushes possess the sort of innate musicality that might make you believe that they're just making shit up as

Friday, Oct. 24: Shayla Renee

Friday night should be a wild one at Cultura Event Center in Tacoma, as the scantily clad Shayla Renee hosts her record release party for her debut, Nothin' Nice. The Seattle-area native and modelesque rapper/singer is representing the epitome of sex, "ratchetness" and materialism - and of course that's what people are

Uniting all three components of the Army

This week, the U.S. Army I Corps hosted a senior leadership summit at Joint Base Lewis-McChord. The main focus was total force integration - increasing cooperation between active duty military, the National Guard and the Army Reserve. The event pulled in generals from up and down the West Coast, Hawaii

Late-night dining in Olympia and Lacey

Olympia doesn't roll up the sidewalks at 9 o'clock, but it sometimes seems as though the city does turn off the oven and start stacking the chairs on top of the tables. Finding a good meal late at night in Thurston County can be challenging - especially on a weekday. It

Theater Review: Olympia Little Theatre stands up to a "Red Herring" challenge

Olympia Little Theatre has harpooned a Moby-Dick of a show with Red Herring. Its production opens on Maggie, a brassy Bostonian cop. Her partner in love and heroism, Frank, is trying to convince her to marry him. She pumps the brakes, claiming eagerness to solve the case of a body

Visual Edge: Nathan Barnes' "Open Ended" at Pierce College

For lack of a better term, I'm tempted to call Nathan Barnes' paintings pop surrealism, but his paintings are about 10 times better than most of what falls into that category. And yes, there really is such a thing. You can find it on Google and Wikipedia. Among famous artists
