As we write these words, approximately 80 pounds of eggnog are congealing in our refrigerator and colons. So it's a bit late - and hypocritical - for us to start preaching the importance of moderation. But we're a big believer that a little holiday spirit goes a long way. You

Snobbery aside, if I wail, "Don't need nothin'! ... but a -" chances are you know the next two words of that lyric. And if I ask what the phrase "every night has its dawn" implies, almost anyone can extend that musical simile to cowboys and roses. Over a quarter-century

Through Jan. 4: "Correctional Fluid" by Jean Nagia

I don't know how she does it. Susan Christian, owner of Salon Refu, keeps discovering artists of note. Or maybe they find her. The latest is Jean Nagia, an artist completely new to me. He painted the bright, geometric abstract mural on the side of Salon Refu,

Theater Review: A Year with Frog and Toad - The Musical

Tis the season for the playhouses to be rolling out their family fare in the hopes of spreading cheer and hooking the next generation of potential theatergoers. Instead of choosing a straight up Christmas tale this year, Lakewood Playhouse chose to go the more reflective route. A Year with Frog

A people's history of the Land of Sweets

Did you know the 1892 debut of Pyotr Ilich Tchaikovsky's ballet The Nutcracker was not a huge success? It was originally paired with Tchaikovsky's final opera, Iolanta, a fictionalized biography of Yolande, Duchess of Lorraine. Critics found The Nutcracker's dancers "amateurish" and "corpulent," then dismissed the piece itself as "insipid"

Catching and hooking Trees and Timber

In the late '70s, a record label was born in London called Stiff Records. Among the prominent voices in the label were the prolific and pop-minded likes of Nick Lowe, Elvis Costello and Wreckless Eric. What these artists had in common was a love for pop structure, albeit informed by

[ACOUSTIC INDIE POP] + SAT, DEC. 20 Olympia's Wauby usually play plugged-in, sunshiny indie pop, but this Saturday they'll be going acoustic. Still, as much as the vibrancy of their synths will be absent from their Le Voyeur set, there isn't much that can dampen the enthusiasm that Wauby bring to
