Everlasting Love

Everlasting Love

One of the preeminent voices of the 1960s, Darlene Love brings her Christmas show — and a collection of pop classics — to Spokane
The word "legend" might get thrown around a bit too carelessly these days, but make no mistake: Darlene Love is, without question, a living legend. The beloved vocalist and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee is heading to Spokane with her annual Christmas show, called "Love for the Holidays," and she talked to the Inlander in the week leading up to the concert about her many accomplishments.

Give the Drummer Some

Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl is arguably the biggest drummer-turned-frontman, but he's not the first
Foo Fighters' success was far from a guaranteed thing when Dave Grohl recorded the band's self-titled 1995 debut all by his lonesome after Kurt Cobain's death and the demise of Nirvana. Sure, some other drummers had successfully moved from behind their kits into the frontman spotlight, but musicians like Phil Collins (Genesis) and Don Henley (Eagles) were already known vocal commodities before launching solo careers.

Lights Out

Julien Baker brings her deeply human songs to the Bartlett
The thing that made Julien Baker's 2015 album Sprained Ankle feel so special — besides her towering talent as a composer and musician, of course — is that no one had heard of Julien Baker. More precisely: Not many people had heard of her.

Your Attention, Please

A Perfect Circle wants you to put your smartphone down for 90 minutes
Progressive rock supergroup A Perfect Circle has been making headlines for kicking out dozens of fans who've captured their live performances with smartphones, but it's not like fans who get booted can say they were surprised. On the band's current tour, there are signs on the back of each seat warning that taking videos or pictures will, in all caps, "RESULT IN EJECTION."

Live After Death

Trans-Siberian Orchestra takes its epic Christmas show on the road again after its founder's passing
Back in the late '80s, my friends and I would gather and watch Headbangers Ball, the MTV show dedicated to all things hard rock and heavy metal. Some of the music we genuinely loved, some was laughable, and some of it was utterly confounding.

The Medium and the Message

Gonzaga rap fans create a new club to express themselves and explore all aspects of hip-hop culture
Chances are Reece Stone's finance professors have no idea about the diminutive 20-year-old redhead's other life, one born a couple of years ago when a fellow student in his Gonzaga dorm introduced him to an addictive new habit.

Honing Psychedelia

Charcoal Squids frontman talks chops and his ever-evolving musical journey
Joshua Bacha was never a slouch on guitar, but he didn't truly devote himself to the instrument — or music in general — until about three years ago. He's since made up for lost time by completely absorbing himself in practicing and performing; by no coincidence, his skills have improved by leaps and bounds.

Backstage for Brooks

Garth Brooks sold out seven shows at the Arena; here's what it's like behind the scenes
Maybe you've heard: Garth Brooks is in town, and he's playing a whopping seven shows between now and Tuesday. It sounds crazy, but it's common practice for the country music megastar.

I Saw the Signs

Despite strong performances, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri's messaging misses its mark
Grief is an overpowering substance. When mixed with a lack of resolution and a splash of guilt, it's a poisonous cocktail.

The Big Picture

The state of the film industry in the wake of sexual assault allegations, box office flops, and the threat of streaming entertainment
Hollywood is at an impasse. Since the birth of the film industry, everything from the advent of the mall multiplex to the proliferation of VCRs has led to talk about the imminent death rattle of Tinseltown.

Edge of Seventeen

Greta Gerwig's directorial debut Lady Bird is one of the great teen films — snappy, observant and deeply empathetic
Greta Gerwig's Lady Bird is concerned with the same adolescent hang-ups and rites of passage as most coming-of-age films, but it's told with the kind of clear-eyed emotional insight that you don't often see in movies, let alone the ones about teenagers. It's a comedy, I suppose, in the sense that we find ourselves laughing often, mostly in recognition of the truths it reveals.

A Chip Off the Old Iceberg

Twenty years ago, Titanic broke box office records. So why didn't more movies rip off its winning formula?
December 2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the most lucrative and deliriously popular movie ever made: James Cameron's Titanic. The epic romantic disaster drama debuted in U.S. cinemas on Dec. 19, 1997, and played until October 1998, 41 weeks later.
