Thursday, April 23-Wednesday, April 29: Recital Week

Dude, somewhere - in the back of your closet, maybe - there's a necktie. You own one. Put it on. Or don't. Doesn't matter. Either way, it's time for you to get some culture. Luckily for you, this is recital week at Pacific Lutheran University, which serves as one-stop shopping

Military salute with a twist

Imagine a day where you not only win by discovering great day and weekend trips around the Northwest, but also have tons of chances to win free vacations, admission tickets and restaurant certificates ... and you aren't charged a dime to participate.

Admit it - you've got a pile of junk in your garage that you need to get rid of, but you've been putting it off. Maybe you have bags of clothes your kids have outgrown, toys they never use or things you put aside for later but never got around

Saturday, April 18: Record Store Day

When talking with Deadbeat Olympia owner and booker Brandon Rowley, he said that he once met with a 70-year-old Olympia lifer who imparted some wisdom: "Every day should be Record Store Day." Record Store Day is a fundamentally confounding tradition. Just like every other new holiday, Record Store

[SINGER-SONGWRITER] + FRI, APRIL 17 When most singer-songwriters show up at open mics, what you can expect is a series of weepy ladies and gentlemen strumming away on acoustic guitars. In direct opposition to these expectations, what you will find Friday at the New Frontier Lounge is a horse of a

Boathouse 19 wins Tournament of Mac and Cheese

While everyone else was thinking about the NCAA Basketball Tournament last week, at the Weekly Volcano, we were elbows deep in a culinary throwdown of epic proportions.  It was all about Mac and Cheese Madness, and brackets were lined with the "who's who'"of Tacoma eateries, which were pitted against each

The Three Ha-Migos

Tacoma, you're about to get funnier. And no, we aren't talking about more incessant and played out jokes about the "Aroma of Tacoma." We are talking about serious, laugh-‘til-it-hurts and asses-fall-off kind of funny. This is serious funny business for three local lads who love Tacoma, love really good comedy and have figured

Saturday, April 18: The Gods Themselves

Any band confident enough to title a song of theirs "I Am the President" is one worthy of standing up and paying attention.

Luchadores assemble!

Very soon, a team of costumed heroes will reunite. The world at large may never know their true identities, but these supermen (and one superwoman) wage a never-ending battle against absolute villainy. Their muscles flexing proudly, brows furrowed 'neath colorful cowls, they stride forward, shoulder to shoulder, fists raised to

Saturday, April 18: Scott Pemberton

Imagine the clouds parted, a mother ship from planet Funkatron descended, and an alien musician slithered out to encounter ... a Les Paul electric guitar. How would said E.T. approach that unfamiliar instrument? He or she might just lay the axe down on a rock and play it horizontally, like
