Magic in Six Strings

The story of Sir Richard Bishop, an old guitar and Tangier Sessions
Veteran experimental guitarist Sir Richard Bishop's recent shows are so focused on one very old guitar and the sounds it makes, it's almost like Bishop's on a traveling museum exhibit rather than a concert tour. "People do like the story of the guitar and the mystery behind it ... just as much as they might like the music," Bishop says in a telephone interview from his home in Portland.

Clear Skies Ahead

Joe Pug slayed some demons making his new album and his music is better for it
Joe Pug was ready to quit, or perhaps have a nervous breakdown. The record-tour grind through the young songwriter's first two albums made him a rising star on the folk-rock scene by the end of 2013, but also left him exhausted after four years and more than 400 shows.

Ride It Out

Rough Congress hasn't played a show in two years, but that doesn't mean they broke up
Getting the members of soul-funk quintet Rough Congress in the same room is not for the faint of heart. Work schedules are all over the board, each is consumed with various musical projects and only three members still live in Spokane.

Roadworn and Weary

Seattle's Supersuckers have plenty of fresh heartache to fuel a new country album
For 27 years, the Supersuckers and leader Eddie Spaghetti have toured virtually nonstop. And while that made the Seattle crew revered among fans for consistently great rock shows and occasional forays into sleazy barroom country, it also meant Spaghetti's wife JD and his three kids at home were only seeing him a couple of days a month, at best.

Road Goes On Forever

Widespread Panic's never-ending tour stops in Spokane for the first time since 1999
It's hard to imagine a band more capable of surfing the waves of change in the music business than Widespread Panic. That effortless professional ingenuity didn't necessarily come to the Georgia-based crew through, say, prescience about the rise of digital delivery systems or adherence to shifting musical trends.

Between the Bread

Deli Man gives us a colorful look at the Jewish delicatessen, but some fat could have been trimmed
The pastrami looks and tastes great in this loving documentary about Jewish delicatessens, but the meal would go down even better if some of the excess fat were trimmed. The anchor for this love song to the Jewish deli is Ziggy Gruber, a third-generation deli man who currently operates Kenny & Ziggy's in Houston, Texas.

Lock it Up

Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart's buddy comedy Get Hard is too soft
You've got to wonder how Will Ferrell makes career choices. There have been great roles, ones that he's absolutely owned: in Zoolander, Elf, Anchorman, Talladega Nights, The LEGO Movie.

Sequel Success

Insurgent is more creative than a lot of sci-fi — and that doesn't say a lot about today's movies
Is it convoluted, perhaps as a result of adhering too closely to the novel it's based on? Maybe.

Dance Lessons

Ballet 422 takes you inside a world of dedication and beauty
In the gorgeous, glorious 2010 performance film NY Export: Opus Jazz, co-directed and shot by Jody Lee Lipes, Jerome Robbins' dance choreography was almost overshadowed by Lipes' camera movements ­— be they elegantly gliding, laying low to focus close-up on footwork, or spiriting high for a bird's-eye big picture. With the documentary Ballet 422, Lipes' first return to dance after notable narrative cinematography work (on HBO's Girls and the upcoming Trainwreck, among other projects), he's somewhat boxed himself into a corner with the cinema verité directive to capture the moment and keep out of the way.

Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Blah

Cinderella finds a version of the Disney classic stripped of its charm
It's time for those of us who write about film to admit it: The war for Hollywood's soul is lost. It was lost a long time ago.
