Modest Mouse tests new material with fans in unusual setting

Modest Mouse
March 21 @ US Naval Reserve Center


I still can't figure out why Modest Mouse agreed to play in a crappy-sounding gymnasium used mostly for sweaty basketball games. What I do know is that despite a poorly chosen venue, the major-status alt

Seattle Rep's My Name is Rachel Corrie proves free speech is not sleeping in Seattle
by Miryam Gordon - SGN A&E Writer

Political controversy aside, Rachel Corrie was apparently a heck of a writer. Thoughtful, idealistic, funny, altruistic. Somehow, news reports about her tragic and preventable death in the West Bank flattened her out and did not convey any personality, just as a Israeli bulldozer (mistakenly

Direction and choreography distinguish world premiere musical
by Jacob Clark - SGN A&E Writer

Opening a new musical is no small task. Without any traditions or choreography established by a Broadway run, everything is newly created. Directing any musical is a big job, coordinating all the elements that go into a successful show. Choreographing a new musical, without the danc

Reasons to look forward to Norwescon - Sci-fi and fantasy convention returns for 30th year
by Rajkhet Dirzhud-Rashid - SGN A&E Writer

For me, who can't afford a trip to Italy or even Hawaii, Norwescon is my little 'home away from home' every year, almost a vacation. Close enough that I look forward to the whole shebang that is one of the biggest sci-fi/fantasy cons on the West coast, and one that brings visitors from

Q-Scopes by Jack Fertig
ARIES (March 20 - April 19): Odd hunches and impulses should prove profitable. Go with your first instinct; don't waste time thinking, or you'll miss out. Now more then ever, garage sales and thrift stores are a good place to find undervalued treasures.
