Saturday, March 28: Maroon 5

It's been 11 years since Maroon 5 smashed into the public consciousness with "This Love" and "She Will Be Loved," though "Harder to Breathe," the first single from that same album, actually reached #18 two years earlier. (Overnight success is a funny thing.) Since then, Adam Levine's distinctively high-pitched tenor

Friday, March 27-April 11: "In a Dark, Dark House"

Neil LaBute's In a Dark Dark House, presented by Theater Artists Olympia, takes place 20 years after the summer that set the course for two estranged brothers lives - reunion to uncover the secrets and lies that have shaped them into the men they've become: One a hand-to-mouth blue collar

The South Sound is a lit-lovin' book-readin' type of region. We welcome authors, and we support them. We read their books and we go to events where they read their books to us. And a bunch of these authors even live here, which means we probably sit next to them

Veterans move from battlefields to farmlands

We've all heard about how difficult the transition from active military service to the civilian world can be. There are a myriad of organizations out there that work to help service men and women go from boots on the ground to successful civilian careers.

Cue the music: Tiny burgers / In my belly; Make me happy (make me happy) / Make me feel fine (make me feel fine). Slider sammies are still trending, and that's A-OK with me. These versatile morsels pack big flavor between two wee buns. I mean, what's not to like? And Saturday,

[COUNTRY] + SAT, MARCH 28 Oakland five-piece Halcyonaire approach the genre of country music from a roundabout way. Much like bands like Phosphorescent, the music is less about approximating the sound of country than it is about creating a hazy mirage of what country feels like. These are drifting songs that

One of the more bizarre movie-watching experiences I've ever had is when my dad sat me down and had me watch Beach Blanket Bingo. Yet another in a seemingly endless series of beach party movies in the '60s, featuring Frankie Avalon, Annette Funicello, and tons of groovy dancing, Beach Blanket

Sitting in the Flames

Post traumatic stress is nothing new. After World War I ended in 1918, returning British and American soldiers began exhibiting troubling symptoms such as confusion and nightmares. The condition, labeled by the soldiers themselves as shell shock, was "often attributed to cowardice or malingering," according to the American Psychological Association.

Career paths at Clover Park Technical College

About three years ago, the Veterans Resource Center opened on the Clover Park Technical College campus. "A lot of good comes out of this office," commented Army veteran Shawn Durnen, the center's lead navigator, as we sat on a comfortable sofa in a large, well-lit and information-rich room in a converted

Thursday, April 2 & Saturday, April 4: Peach Kelli Pop

The music of Peach Kelli Pop harkens back to the sugary sound of Beach Blanket Bingo - albeit with a fuzzy veneer of bubblegum garage pop - but sneakily provides more substance than Frankie and Annette could've mustered. From bedroom recordings to playful glamor shots on album covers and associations

Monday, March 30: Father Murphy

From the anthemic rage of Manic Street Preachers' The Holy Bible to John Lennon's weary look into the unknown on John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band, musicians confronting their feelings on religion can often be a harrowing experience. Italian duo Father Murphy take this spiritual struggle to its next logical, roaring step.

Visual Edge: Between chance and control at Kittredge Gallery

The title of the smaller show in the back gallery at Kittredge Gallery is "Between Chance and Control." That title well describes the main show as well: "Process Drawings: Recent Works by Makato Fujimura." I'm tempted to say Fujimura's drawings are dull, and in a way they are - dull in
