Seattle Weekly, The Stranger

These are the two alternative weeklies in Seattle. What I've found in reading both of them for years is the following: The Stranger has better general articles, but if you want to find out what's actually going on in Seattle in terms of music, movies, art, special events, the Seattle Weekly is the place to go. They may ebb and flow with the interesting articles, but they do a good job of reviewing stuff. The Stranger, on the other hand, is a nightmare when you're looking to find out what's new, often compressing lots and lots of information into really small blurbs that don't distinguish between good bands and forgettable ones, for example.
