Through Feb. 8: "The Great Gatsby"

In 1922, Fitzgerald wrote a short story called "Winter Dreams," which formed the basis for his most celebrated novel. Other than the novel's title, however, every other detail was true. Fitzgerald did meet his Maker with every reason to believe The Great Gatsby would vanish into obscurity. What

For Richard Baker the line between life and death is very thin, almost transparent. He served in Vietnam; he came home with PTSD; he tried suicide twice; then a Veterans Administration doctor suggested Baker return to Vietnam.  He did. "I fell in love with the place and the people and never felt

Tacoma's finest bring the history of soul to Jazzbones

Soul music has been a genre that's evolved steadily and uniquely, over time, with shining stars picking up the mantle of those who came before them, and then subsequently adding their own bit of unique energy to the form. Since blues, R&B and rock synthesized sometime in the '50s, there's

Adding more to the Top of Tacoma

In the summer of 2011, Tacoma witnessed genuine culinary overachieving when Jaime Kay Jones and Chef Kyle Wnuk opened Sixth Avenue establishment Marrow. Jaime and husband Jason already owned T-town staple Top of Tacoma Bar and Cafe and ventured forward with a more finessed approach at Marrow, which featured gourmet-styled

There are some bands that telegraph what they're all about before you even listen to their music. As a person who's professionally written about music for almost six years, it's become a sort of game to figure out what the band's all about before even hearing their stuff. By far,

[FUNK] + FRI, JAN. 23 Unh, get on up! Sometimes you just got to get funky. Did you know funk hails from the classical era? The word derives from fumigare, a Latin word that means "to release smoke." It refers to anything stinky or musty, and funk artists are still putting

Citizens speak, Army listens

For every action there is a reaction. Especially in this are when it comes to downsizing the active duty military. The action is sequestration, the forced federal budget cuts that reduce $500 billion from planned military spending by 2021. Congress adopted sequestration in 2011 to force a long-term budget agreement, but since then

One of the most challenging things about getting out of the military is figuring out what to do afterward. For servicemembers, their Military Occupational Specialty (MOS), might make the decision easy. For instance, air traffic controllers will more than likely continue that occupation in the civilian sector. But what about

For those outside the ska scene (like me, I must admit), it can be a little bit of a struggle to keep the various "waves" in check. Are we up to 20 waves, by now? In any case, there's no denying the influence that The Toasters had on the ska

Saturday, Jan. 24: Solvents

Considering how abrasive and corrosive solvents can be, the band Solvents may as well be a swimming pool filled with fluffy teddy bears. The Port Townsend duo are a master of controlled intensity, blending guitar and violin in ways that can attack as much as they soothe. The interplay between

Saturday, Jan. 24: Skates

Skates is a band formed almost on a whim, formed from the ashes of the recently defunct Redwood Plan. Frontwoman Lesli Wood made a move basically akin to Queen vowing to not use synthesizers on their album, or like Joe Jackson nonchalantly making the decision to not include any guitars
