Continue your virtual tour of the local music scene

More time in lockdown means more time to explore the lush melodies, messages and movements that make up the Lilac City’s local music scene. Here are some of our community’s own musical artists who keep us entertained in isolation.

The show will go on – just from their living rooms

The spreading coronavirus canceled several touring performances from A-list musical artists, but those acts have found a new venue to sing: their living rooms. John Legend, Bono, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Pink, John Mayer, Keith Urban and more have performed virtual concerts from their homes as the world continues to practice social distancing to slow the spread of the virus.

509 Beer: Regional brews stock grocery store shelves

As we continue to adjust to this new normal around town, it’s more important than ever to support the many local breweries who face uncertain times ahead. Even with the mandated taproom closings, many local breweries and beer bars have been able to keep their doors open by selling beer to go, and it’s a great option for these long days of social distancing. As always, another option for your beer run is the grocery store, so I want to help you make an informed choice. The good news about grocery store beer in this region is that we are spoiled for choice. The National Independent Brewers Association has created a seal on many bottles and cans that will help you identify independent craft beer quickly and easily, which is a great place to start. Here are a few regional craft beers, widely available in stores, that deserve a place in your cart among the rolls of toilet paper.

Bring the gym classes home with streaming workouts

With gyms and other recreational facilities closed to help stop the spread of coronavirus, you have to get creative to fit in your workout.

Here are just a few to consider: Yoga with Adriene

Review: ‘I Still Believe’s’ admirable story gets lost in execution

“I Still Believe,” based on the true story of Christian singer-songwriter Jeremy Camp (K.J. Apa) and the loss of his first wife, Melissa Henning (Britt Robertson), has a lot of heart and an admirable message, but it gets lost in its lackluster execution and stale narrative.

Local music teachers take a turn in the spotlight

This weekend, Jody Graves, recent Steinway Hall of Fame inductee, will join the Spokane Jazz Orchestra for a concert showcasing some of the best work of American composer George Gershwin.

Review: ‘Bloodshot’ is a supremely silly Vin Diesel vehicle

Do any of the characters have clearly articulated motives? No. Are the action sequences a confounding geographical jumble? Indeed. Does Lamorne Morris shout “He’s overclocking the nanites!” in a cockney accent? Of course he does. What more could you possibly expect from a movie called “Bloodshot”? Nothing.

Review: Spirited ‘Extra Ordinary’ is not your basic paranormal rom-com

There’s absolutely nothing banal about “Extra Ordinary,” a deviously amusing paranormal rom-com(!) that convincingly summons the playful spirit of Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement (“What We Do in the Shadows”) and Edgar Wright (“Shaun of the Dead”) while tossing in a few of its own inspired touches.

Review: Music doc about the Band captures a time when something golden, incendiary and wistfully beautiful took place

As compelling as “Once Were Brothers” is as cultural history, it’s not comprehensive: The subtitle, after all, is “Robbie Robertson and the Band,” and this is very much one man’s story. Rick Danko, Levon Helm and Richard Manuel – the film’s most heartbreaking figure – are no longer with us to share their perspective, and Garth Hudson isn’t talking.

Review: Ben Affleck brings personal struggles to convincing performance in ‘The Way Back’

Though the focus is on Jack’s journey back to himself through the device of basketball, the best moments in “The Way Back” are the basketball itself. Affleck takes to the role of a hot-tempered coach like a duck to water, and the character, as written, plays on his innate qualities: a dry and snarky wit that makes him a lovable jerk, but a jerk nonetheless.
