Motopony plays Caffè Mela tonight, a homecoming for guitarist and singer Mike Notter

WENATCHEE — Mike Notter is a realist. Even now, as a valued member of two acclaimed Seattle-based bands, the Wenatchee native is keeping his day job as a window washer. It’s the responsible thing to do, he says. But with one of those bands — indie rockers Motopony — having a bit of a moment, releasing a new album and hitting the road, there may soon come a time when Notter hangs up his squeegee.

Back to the blues: Winthrop festival returns for 28th year

Tomorrow marks the one-year anniversary of the Carlton Complex Fire, when four separate wildfires merged into one massive force that destroyed 300 homes in Okanogan County. While the largest wildfire in Washington history raged and smoke and panic spread through most of the Methow Valley, nearly 2,000 people gathered on a ranch just outside of Winthrop to dance and sing the blues.

The Wicks: On fire and back home for one night at Mela

The Wicks are coming home, at least temporarily. Husband-and-wife duo Jedidiah and Pauline Wick formed The Wicks in 2011, while they were living in Cashmere. Last year, they moved to the Fort Worth area, picked up a third member in vocalist and lead guitarist John Charles Ledbetter and continued to tour and win fans with their foot-stomping soul-folk music. Now they’re back, touring Washington and playing before a hometown crowd Friday night at Caffè Mela.

The Cave Singers hit Caffè Mela Saturday

In my experience, folks who complain over a lack of local entertainment options have rarely checked to see if there are any. Those grousing over our anemic music and art scene are the same who stay in more often than not, curled up on couches, choosing the boob tube over live entertainment.

Poker is in, live music is out at the new Clearwater

The rumors are true. The Clearwater Steakhouse & Saloon has new owners. Dave and Neang “Touch” Dvorak, Jerry Howe and Bill Harrison took ownership of the East Wenatchee bar and restaurant on Jan. 1 from longtime owner Ken Dominguez. And while they promise that much will remain the same — the popular menu, the bar and kitchen staff and the Old West theme — the place is getting a major facelift. The right side of what is now called the Clearwater Saloon & Casino is being converted into a card ...
