by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

Andrew Jons, a local recording artist, looked at me from across the table in a café where we met for coffee on December 21 and said, quietly, 'Twenty-one years ago, my best friend and baby brother lost his battle with leukemia.'

Now, you must understand: Andy never does

Move over, stuffy drag pageants - there's a new pageant in town and this one is all about the community. On December 23, five queens vied for the title of Miss Community at R Place, and nobody left a loser. Each con

It's almost 2013, and the first few months of the New Year are loaded with live concerts by some of the industry's biggest and most acclaimed performers. I could've easily made a list of 25 great artists coming to Seattle between now and early April, but alas, my editor says there's only r

A fond farewell - Saying goodbye to musical artists we lost in 2012
by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

As the year comes to a close and we finalize our New Year's Eve celebrations, it seems appropriate to bid adieu to the musicians who left us in 2012. Rest in peace ... your music will live on.

2012 in cinema: Despite a slow start, it was a banner year for moviegoers
by Sara Michelle Fetters - SGN A&E Writer

Back in June, I wasn't sure 2012 was going to be that great a year for cinema. Sure, there were some terrific and ballsy flicks that I liked a lot (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, Kill List, Moonrise Kingdom, Safety Not Guaranteed, and a handful of others) but there weren't m
