Theater Review: "Shadowlands at Olympia Little Theatre

While not a true biography, Shadowlands by William Nicholson depicts the meeting, courtship, and subsequent marriage of British author and Christian theologian C.S. Lewis to American poet Joy Gresham. Fans of historical accuracy will be disappointed that many details are left out such as one of Gresham's sons or that

Saturday, Nov. 2: Power Skeleton

In looking out for bands to cover, what usually draws me in first is not the music. Band names that catch the eye or make me laugh are usually shown preference. Well, Power Skeleton hit the holy trifecta. They have a great name, they have an intriguing way to describe

Friday, Nov. 1: Les Rhinoceros

Les Rhinoceros make experimental music that vacillates from the understatedly regal ("Seepy Seepy") to defiantly abrasive ("Brea Spiders") and everything in between. Incorporating elements of noise-rock, world music, progressive rock, and ambient electronica, Les Rhinoceros make for a difficult band to pin down. From song to song, or even moment

Scatter Gather is a tangled rat's nest of a band

There was a certain point in the '90s when terms like "progressive rock" and "math rock" stopped signaling quite the potent meaning that they possessed before. Turning rock music on its head had become a foregone conclusion, and the act of throwing befuddling elements into your music became not only

Wednesday, Nov. 6: Scatter Gather

When I called up Scatter Gather, based out of Denver, they balked at my idea that their music was complicated. Maybe this is the moment that I realize that I am an old man that doesn't understand this new-fangled rock and roll music. But, when I

The Grand Suggests: "The Summit"

Can a climber do any better than reaching the summit of Mount Everest? There is literally no higher achievement than successfully scaling the "Roof of the World."  It's not a feat to be taken lightly. Many die in the attempt, only to remain on the mountain as warnings to others.
