Ascending Artist: Alexandra Iosub

Ascending Artist: Alexandra Iosub

From Romania to Sandpoint, an artist focuses on living in the moment
T here's no telling the places artist Alexandra Iosub could go. "I am without roots," says Iosub (pronounced YO-seb), who currently resides in a tiny mobile house she is building from the wheels up, parked, at least temporarily, in Sandpoint.

Rally Songs

Local musicians bring the healing power of music to where kids need it most
As concert venues go, Rachel and Gracie's Playhouse is a lot brighter than the typical nightclub. The walls are splashed with original watercolors; the floors are a downright garish combination of light green and ocean blue.

TV | Stranger Things

A binge-worthy nod to the '80s
Released just weeks ago, Netflix's newest original series Stranger Things is overflowing with classic '80s nostalgia and major nods to two of sci-fi's biggest names in film and fiction, Stephen King and Steven Spielberg. If you haven't binge-watched the eight-episode series yet, better make plans to do so soon.

For Your Consideration

Administrative malpractice, The Kid speaks and new comic voice
TV | When Danny McBride donned a mullet to become Kenny Powers for HBO's Eastbound & Down, he forever changed television comedy. So you can't blame HBO for returning to see if there's any more gold to be mined from McBride and his collaborator Jody Hill's comedic vein.

The Way

For pilgrims of the Camino de Santiago trail, the journey never ends
He's not sure when he first heard about the Way, as it's known, or exactly why he decided to take that first journey at age 50. But after walking 1,500 miles of the Camino de Santiago trail — a feat that required three trips (2003, '07, '12) snaking through parts of Belgium, France and Spain — Fr.

GAME | POKE-MANIA

A new game of old characters transfixes the nation, and Spokane
In 45 minutes, we caught a Psyduck, Diglett, Growlithe, Drowzee, Spearow, Pidgey, Krabby and even more of their fellow Pokémon denizen. The Pokémon are plentiful in downtown Spokane's Riverfront Park — so much so that the park's Canada Island has been nicknamed "Pokémon Island" by locals camping out there for hours to catch the elusive creatures.

FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION

A welcome return, monstrous comic and disastrous novel
MUSIC | Fans have been aching for a follow-up for years now, but the long wait is almost over. Later this summer, LOCAL NATIVES is releasing its third studio album, following up on the success of 2013's Hummingbird.

Digging for History

On the job at an archaeological survey of Riverfront Park
The first thing that lets you know that the Indiana Jones franchise lied to you is the hats. Ashley Morton and James Burr Harrison do not have cool hats.

Time is of the Essence

The works on display in the Jundt Museum's newest exhibition won't be around forever
Every third year since 2001, Gonzaga University's Jundt Art Museum has invited several local artists to decorate a selection of its walls by drawing directly on them. After a matter of weeks, the walls are painted over, the artists' works never to be seen again.

Let the Wanderlust Win

Why you shouldn't let anything hold you back from traveling
Many evenings I paced the floor of my tiny Spokane apartment, trying to work up the courage to call up friends and go out. Too nervous, I would often surrender to the comfort of my bed, a bowl of ice cream and a slew of Netflix shows.

Television | UnREAL

Deliciously self-aware hypocrisy that you'll want to watch
When you create a TV show, you have choices. You can create the sort of sexist show that leers at hot women in tiny bikinis.

For Your Consideration

Tech-centric TV, a wholly original game and classic Kills
MUSIC | Since their 2003 debut, indie/garage rock band the Kills have been refining their distinctive style and winning fans over with their plentiful personality. The band, comprised of singer Alison Mosshart and guitarist Jamie Hince, went on hiatus in 2013 when Hince suffered a hand injury that necessitated numerous surgeries and forced him to relearn to play his instrument from scratch.

Princess Fever

Ever wonder what it's like to become a princess for a living? These Spokane women can tell you
"One time, I watched a movie about you!" proclaims 5-year-old Piper Lee. "What's a movie?"

SCIENCE | BODIES HUMAN

Mobius Science Center opens its new location with a revealing exhibit
It's taken years for Mobius Science Center to find the right spot. When it opened in 2012, it was right in the middle of a retail sector downtown, which is not an ideal location for a museum, says CEO Phil Lindsey.

For Your Consideration

A stirring debut, surreal sitcom and reading the G.O.A.T.
ALBUM | "I've got to get out of this tree, off of this limb. I'm a woman acting like a kid," Margaret Glaspy sings on the title track of her new album EMOTIONS AND MATH, but the 12 songs filling this excellent debut mark the 27-year-old singer/guitarist as mature beyond her years.

Learning to Stand Up Again

Marc Maron hits up Spokane for the first time, returning to his stand-up roots
Marc Maron is a guy who never thought he'd be here. At one time he used cocaine and alcohol with abandon; he took any job he could get in show business (game show host is among his credits).
