Friday, March 20: An Evening of Fine Jazz and Northwest Cuisine

In college, Scott Cossu immersed himself in the music of Ecuador, living in the Andes Mountains and Chota Valley while furthering his ethnomusicology studies.  He then alchemized his amassed knowledge into records with shamelessly cheesy titles like Emerald Pathways, Stained Glass Memories and, simply, Mountain. Cossu's a laudable pianist, and

Through June 30: "Chihuly Drawings"

I have always thought Dale Chihuly's drawings were more impressive than his glass creations, but I have never seen enough of his drawings to say so until now. "Chihuly Drawings" at Museum of Glass makes the case quite emphatically. One hundred and eighty-six drawings fill the

Sister Girlfriend reeks of unironic cool

Hall & Oates is one of those bands that it's very easy to scoff at: the dumb hair and mustaches, the painfully sincere music and the blue-eyed soul. Still, in this era of post-irony, where hipsters are able to enjoy cheesy music without ever having to keep it at arm's

Tuesday, March 24: Religious Girls

Oakland trio Religious Girls is gospel music for noise. Praising everything both beautiful and abrasive, Religious Girls are fascinated with taking clattering and chanting and making it a main character.

Adrianne Pavlik skates for the all-female, nonprofit, player-run, flat-track roller derby team, the JBLM Bettie Brigade.
